The US flight will be for 3 hours, which is also a long period to ensure enough buzz for the project—ensuring a grand-scale promotion for Jimin in the most sophisticated way imaginable.

For the Australian route, the flight will be on Gold Coast, and the duration will be two hours.

The Australian route will include a highlighted tourist resort named after the 42 km of golden sandy beach—adding prestige to the project.

In addition to incredible birthday support projects, fans known as ARMY are also showing their love to the singer through various hashtags on Twitter.

To commemorate BTS Jimin's birthday today, Ukraine ARMYs have also prepared a "first-in-the-world" project that involves the ‘Serendipity’ singer being featured on the biggest LED screen in all of Europe.

Another birthday support project for BTS member Jimin that is also the first in the world is a digital ad in Kyoto, Japan. Jimin became the first foreign artist to be featured on that ad space in the country.

The advertisement will run for a week.
