The popular South Korean boyband BTS is celebrating the 29th birthday of their oldest member, Kim Seok-jin on December 4. The band, fresh off their successful Permission to Dance on Stage concert in Los Angeles, was pleasantly surprised when the ARMY, name of the band's fandom, planned a surprise for the birthday boy. However, the celebration was not done as they were surprised again at an event. Check the video here.
Scheduled on December 4, the seven-member band performed at the 2021 iHeartRadio Jingle Ball Tour after their concert at SoFi stadium. During the event, the band was surprised with a cake to celebrate Jin's birthday. The video of the same was posted on the official social handle where the band was presented with a colourful cake. ARMY at the venue were also seen holding 'Moon bombs' referring to Jin's 2020 hit single 'Moon'.
The video was posted with the caption, ''Couldn’t let @BTS_twt perform without wishing Jin a very Happy Birthday! Celebration time in LA!'' While the cake was appreciated by the band and ARMY alike, several caught on to the text written on the cake which also started the Twitter trend 'Happy birthday BTS'.
ARMY soon noticed that the cake presented to the band had the text 'Happy birthday BTS' written on it despite celebrating Jin's birthday. Bandmate Suga also appeared perplexed while taking a peek at the cake. The video was widely circulated on social media as ARMY reacted to it. One fan wrote, ''Except for the part on the cake where it said Happy Birthday BTS...thats not until June.''
