‘First in world’; BTS’ Jimin gets customized helicopter birthday banner for exclusive routes in US, Australia

Seoul: Renowned K-POP idol and member of boyband BTS, Park Jimin continues to set records as the first person in the world with different highly innovative and grand-scale birthday support projects. 

On his 26th birthday, the artist became the first person in the world to receive a customized helicopter birthday banner for exclusive routes in the United States (US) and Australia.

The exclusive birthday-themed banner will be up to 35 meters long for both the US and Australia routes, which is a giant size to ensure visibility. Both flights will have a specialized light aerobatic aircraft utilized for the birthday project.

In US, the banner will pass through famous sites including the Statue of Liberty and the George Washington Bridge—a strategy that will foster drawing attention to the project. 

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.

Moreover, ARMYs in France are celebrating BTS Jimin's birthday by lighting up the Eiffel Tower, which is a famous landmark in the city.
