On October 13, Cedric Faiche, a French journalist and a BFMTV correspondent in New York, posted a beautiful short clip on his official Twitter with 53.5K followers. He captioned it in French, “Danser sur un écran sous la pluie à Times Square #NewYork (Dancing on a screen in the rain in Times Square.)
The short video beautifully shows a usually busy street in New York Times Square, which was then empty due to the rainy weather. It can be seen that there have been several flashy commercial billboards, but then there’s one in particular that caught the journalist’s attention. It is not surprising that he referred to the billboard ad celebrating BTS Jimin’s 26th birthday. The ad shows Jimin and his iconic solo live stage during Melon Music Awards 2019. Jimin’s graceful dance in the middle of the rain makes it really a lovely scenery not to be missed.
