BTS’ J-Hope just turned 26 years old and fans commemorated by making the most unique gift; a mural.
BTS’s ARMY have proven once again to be some of the most dedicated fans in the world after they celebrated J-Hope’s birthday in style.
The South Korean rapper, real name Jung Ho-Seok, just turned 26 years old and his fans wanted to make it special by making a mural of art in his hometown, Gwangju.
The stunning collage went viral online as people shared pictures and videos of the paintings, which has been done in a popular tourist place called Penguin Village.
The BTS star is, so far, the only person painted in the village, as the murals are usually made up of random designs.
