On December 30, BTS’ V celebrates his 27th birthday and for the occasion, ARMYs have organized a celebratory birthday billboard at Oculus, New York’s World Trade Center transportation hub.

BTS’ V is the first celebrity to have a celebratory birthday video in New York’s World Trade Center transportation hub
BTS’ V became not only the first ever Korean but also a global celebrity to have a birthday celebratory video dedicated to him at Oculus in New York’s World Trade Center transportation hub.
The expensive train station, which is priced at $4 billion, took a little over a decade to complete. The multi-purpose building consists of a train station, shopping center, pedestrian tunnel and looks like a white dove from the outside.
Lakhs of people in New York City use the station every day to travel and commute and thus it was an ideal choice for BTS’ V’s birthday videos to be plastered all over.
Oculus is known to place advertisements by world-famous brands like Samsung, which co-incidentally is endorsed by BTS’ V and his group members.
ARMYs took to social media to share their reactions to ‘China Baidu V Bar’s elaborate and celebratory birthday project for BTS’ V. They not only marveled at the grandiose LED screens, but also praised his Chinese fanbase for their extensive hard work and efforts.
Previously, ‘China Baidu V Bar’ organized an underground city project decorated with 17,199 LED screens showcasing high-quality photos and videos of BTS’ V. The subway project will run from December 20 to January 3, across South Korea’s major cities – Seoul, Daegu, Busan, and several other regions. The showcasing will run in different time slots, ensuring it covers every inch of the station.
These birthday videos will be visible from the passageway, waiting room, and entrance and exit points of all nine subway lines.
