Google celebrates Army’s anniversary with BTS street view tour

July 9th marks the ninth birthday of the BTS Army (specifically, the official announcement of its name) 

As Twitter celebrates the anniversary, Google has released a new street view experiment through its Arts & Culture platform in collaboration with the band 

The BTS x Street Galleries exhibition brings viewers on a virtual tour of the group’s favorite artworks. 

Each member has curated a virtual gallery, with their selections placed in various public locations that will be highly recognizable to BTS fans 

J-Hope decorated the UN General Assembly, where BTS gave an address and shot a music video last year 

RM guides fans through Seoul’s Namdaemun, where BTS performed for 2021’s Global Citizen Live festival. 

Some BTS members are known art aficionados (including leader RM, who recently discussed his collection on the Art Basel podcast), 

but others haven’t yet been as public about their tastes. While there are minor glitches here and there
