Particularly, the billboard of ABC Supersign LED, located in the center of Times Square, Manhattan, New York, showed a huge ad featuring none other than V’s smiley face. It is the first time in the world that an individual celebrity has been advertised through the ABC Supersign LED billboard, which represents Times Square.
ARMYs have banded together to do something special for BTS, buying a special billboard in New York’s Times Square to celebrate the group’s fifth anniversary. In particular, articles related to this also appeared in the British daily newspaper Metro, attracting a lot of attention.
Meanwhile, BTS has just finished the North American tour with great success after the performance at Citi Field, and will continue their tour in Europe starting with London on OCtober 10th.
