“China Baidu V Bar” rents out TV spots
China Baidu V Bar is Taehyung’s largest fan club in China. They often make big plans to support the idol each year, including supporting Taehyung’s first solo variety show this time.
VBar will air a personal TV commercial for Taehyung, which will air once before the premiere of Jinny’s Kitchen on tvN at 8:50 p.m. local time and twice during the show.
According to CJ ENM’s broadcast guide, each TV ad slot for Jinny’s Kitchen is valued at KRW 300 million, or about US$250,000.
VBar secured slots until they sold out a week before the show aired.
20 global V fan clubs rent LED billboards
Not only VBar, but twenty other global Taehyung fandoms led by BTS V UNION, V INSIDE and KTH SUPPORTED have also banded together to promote Taehyung’s performance at Jinny’s Kitchen.
They rented large LED billboards in buildings in Gangnam, Hongdae and Myeong-dong areas.
These three locations are key areas of the city of Seoul with dense population and high pedestrian traffic. It is therefore very busy and very strategic to display advertisements in the neighborhood.
From February 19, Taehyung’s LED billboard advertising will run until February 25, 2023.
This special advertisement for Taehyung will be shown a total of 500 times per day across the three venues. The ads displayed are placed in the areas most visited by people of all ages and backgrounds to maximize visibility.
