Happy A.R.M.Y. day! The BTS fandom rang in its seventh birthday across social media on Thursday (July 9).

Back in 2013, the K-pop boy band announced the official name of its fan base, tweeting, "Finally!! Our fan club name has been decided!!! A.R.M.Y." (English translation provided via Twitter.)

To mark the occasion in 2020, BTS member Jin offered up a special gift for the band's legions of fans around the world. Taking to his official Weverse page, the singer posted a selfie just for the fandom, writing, "Happy birthday...The gift is Seokjini," with three heart emojis.

Fans quickly got #ThankYouJin trending on Twitter with their reactions to Jin's stoic selfie. "The moon looks beautiful tonight," one fan wrote, referencing Jin's Map of the Soul: 7 solo track dedicated to A.R.M.Y. Many others declared the snap the "best gift" they had ever received.
