Each year, ARMYs come up with creative ways to make their birthday wishes for the BTS member stand out.

One fan hilariously posted a birthday ad for Jungkook in front of an apartment building in Korea with the name “IAN” as a funny reference to Jungkook’s original TikTok username, which caught the attention of the BTS member himself.

Another creative ARMY came up with a unique way to wish Jungkook a happy birthday and even got him some airtime on their local news station.

A news station in Topeka, Kansas, wished Jungkook a happy birthday, and instead of a recent photo showing up on the screen, a pre-debut photo of the BTS member was what appeared.

After wishing him a happy birthday, the anchor complimented Jungkook on his hairstyle, saying, “I wish I could pull that off, but I can’t.
