Golden Maknae BTS Jungkook will be celebrating his 24th birthday on September 1, 2021, as Army’s all over the world prepare to wish him a happy birthday. Millions of fans have united to create thoughtful and extravagant birthday projects celebrating his birthday throughout the world. There’s nothing that is going unturned by the Army to make Jungkook’s day as special as possible.
With projects ranging from cruise ships to drones, Jungkook has exerted his influence across many fields. According to reports, his birthday ads will be played 1000 times on LED boards. Twitter is flooded with Happy Birthday Jungkook messages.
Obviously, India is part of the mix as well. India is set to get its first Jungkook bus shelter advertisement in Mulund, Mumbai. For the first time, India has seen such posters and this project on such a large scale in the country so far.
Jungkook’s Indian fan base dedicated a billboard to him. According to a tweet posted by @Jungkook_INDIA, fans in Mumbai have rented a bus stop billboard in Mulund West, adorning it with pictures of Jungkook, also quoting, “You are the cause of my Euphoria.” Bus Shelter advertisement also showed QR codes to Jungkook’s solo hits such as Begin, Euphoria, My Time, and Still With You. Bus Shelter Advertisement will be displayed until September 4, 2021.
Upon being asked about the project, @Jungkook_INDIA replied, “We choose Mulund since it’s in Mumbai, where it is easily accessible for more ARMYs to come and see the project. This is not the first time a foreign artist/K-pop idol on the billboard in India, another fandom already done that, but it is the first time for a bus shelter billboard. We did this to show our love and support, and we are glad if locals came to know more about BTS through the billboard”.
This is just the tip of the iceberg. There are countless charity projects and other billboards that will mark the singer’s 24th birthday. The Billboard project is another illustration of how K-pop’s fan following in India is immensely growing.
BTS is a popular South Korean boy band and Jeon Jungkook is the youngest member of the band. There are seven members of the group — RM, Jin, Suga, Jhope, Jimin, V, and Jungkook. They enjoy a massive fan following internationally, India being no exception. BTS seems to connect with a massive number of people irrespective of their language because they talk about topics that many artists of today’s generation may have failed to do. These seven young men talk about discrimination, gender equality, mental illness, loving oneself, etc. Their songs resonate with people belonging to any age and background. Moreover, they cover a wide variety of genres. The group debuted on June 13, 2013; despite all the odds against them, the BTS members each succeeded in their own way. Each member has their own unique personality and talents that make the group so great.
