EXO’s Chanyeol had his 25th birthday on November 27 this year. His very dedicated fans decided to do something extra special to celebrate the occasion.

Members from his Chinese fan group, ‘Chanyeol Bar’ got a photo of Chanyeol’s face on the Nasdaq Screen in New York City’s Times Square.

Everyone thought it was very impressive at the time, but now it seems slightly more impressive because reports claim to have figured out what the cost of this gesture was.

The massive image, accompanied with English text that says, “Happy 25th Birthday Park Chan Yeol” was a very expensive fan present.

The image was up in Times Square from November 7 – November 15 (a week). According to reports it costs 3 billion KRW ($3.4 million AUD) for a monthly ad fee and about 700 million KRW ($800, 000 AUD) for a week.

You do the math. That’s a lotta money!

His Korean fans also purchased ad space in some subways in Seoul to celebrate the idol's birthday.
