To celebrate SS501's ninth anniversary since debut, a forest under their name was created in Mapo-gu!
Tree Planet said on July 22, "'SS501 Forest' was made through 'Star Forest Project' to commemorate SS501's ninth anniversary since debut." 'Star Forest Project' is an eco-friendly project in which forests are created under the names of stars with the help of fundraising by fans. In charge are social venture group Tree Planet and 'The Green Forest We Make Together' enterprise in Seoul.
The forest will be created on an unused site by the Gyeongeui Railroad in the hopes of greatly muffling the noise downtown. In addition, it will be located nearby a broadcasting station, so a lot of people can visit during their break times.
For the creation of the forest, not only South Korean fans but also overseas fans took place, fans from countries such as Peru, Mexico, and Dominican Republic! Fans stated, "It's a forest we made to congratulate SS501 on their ninth anniversary, but we are also happy thinking that the forest we created would be a help to the environment downtown. We hope that we will get to see all five members of SS501 on one stage together and hope that this forest will become a chance for the members and the fans to gather again."
