A ‘YoonA Forest’ has been created for Girls’ Generation’s YoonA in celebration of her birthday on May 30!
Tree Planet revealed that they collaborated with YoonA’s fans for the ‘Star Forest Project,’ in order to plant a ‘YoonA Forest’ in Seoul in honor of her special day. This special project was made possible through YoonA’s Fanclub Union, in which her fans from all throughout 18 countries, including Korea, China, America, Denmark, and more, gathered enough funds to create the forest. The fans began fundraising in March, and in just one month, they were able to raise more than 10 million KRW (~$9,800 USD).
The ‘YoonA Forest’ will be planted in Seoul, at a lot next to the railway near DMC (Digital Media City) in Sangamdong, Mapogu.
The fans who participated in this special event shared, “We wanted to prepare a meaningful gift for YoonA’s birthday. We would like YoonA’s forest to be a place to come and rest comfortably, not just for YoonA and Girls’ Generation fans, but for many other people as well. A broadcast station in located across the street from the forest, so it will be nice for international fans to also enjoy it.”
