The popularity of BTS, which recently made history as the first-ever Korean act to top the Billboard 200, seems to be growing day by day. Recently, they became the first Korean group to see a single, “Fake Love,” break into the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100.
According to a report billboard.com, BTS featured on prominent New York City’s Times Square ads celebrating its 5th anniversary.
The ads were purchased by fans of the group as well as LG, it said. There are more BTS-dedicated billboards than ever before, it added.
As is becoming increasingly the norm with K-pop acts, BTS’ ARMY rented time on some of the most prominent ad space in NYC for a prominent celebratory ad. Several, multi-story screens were dedicated to the project. According to @BTSNewYorkCity, a Twitter account that aims to represent local New York City ARMY, the ad was bought by seven distinct Twitter users, each of whom have an account that correlates to a specific member of the Korean boy band, according to the Billboard report.
Another celebratory ad came not from fans, but from Korean electronics company LG, for which BTS recently became “spokesmodels.” On Tuesday it announced that it was using its ad space in Times Square to celebrate the group’s anniversary, it said.
BTS celebrated the milestone through their annual Festa event. The group also appeared on The Late Late Show and held a special concert in Seoul that was live-streamed around the world through Naver’s V App, it added.
According to the website, soompi.com, the English online media covering of Korean pop culture, on June 13, BTS celebrated their fifth anniversary with fans through a fan meeting titled “2018 BTS PROM PARTY’ where the group “gifted their fans ARMY with great performances, fun stories, and sweet messages” at the finale of BTS Festa!
