A forest has been built in Seoul under SS501’s name.
Tree Planet revealed on July 22, “ ‘SS501 forest’ has been built in Mapo district.”
‘SS501 forest’ is a forest that celebrates SS501’s 9th anniversary since the debut and it has been built through the Star Forest Project, which is a part of the green forest project carried out by the city of Seoul and social venture group, Tree Planet.
The SS501 forest was created by the group’s fans from in and out of Korea. The forest also carries the fans’ hope for SS501 to begin promotions again as a team.
The participating fans stated, “It’s a forest that has been made to congratulate SS501 on the 9th anniversary but we’re happy to think that this project will positively contribute to the city’s environment. We yearn for the day to see all members of SS501 on the same stage and hope that this forest will provide the opportunity for the members to meet with the fans again.”
