Girls' Generation's YoonA turned 24 today, and fans are celebrating her birthday by raising funds to plant a forest in her name!
YoonA's fans from across 18 countries raised over 10 million KRW (~9,800 USD) staring in March, achieving the goal in only a month-long fund raiser. According to Tree Planet, a 'YoonA Forest' will be created near DMC (Digital Media City) in Sangamdong, Mapogu, Seoul.
Fans stated, "In honor of YoonA's birthday, we wanted to prepare a meaningful gift for YoonA. We hope that the 'YoonA Forest' will be enjoyed by YoonA and Girls' Generation's fans as well as a lot of people who can comfortably rest there. The broadcast station is located across from the forest, so it would be nice for international fans to go there."
Happy Birthday, YoonA!
