A forest has been built under Leeteuk’s name.

Tree Planet announced on July 1 that ‘Leeteuk forest’ has been built in Mapo district of Seoul, under Super Junior Leeteuk’s name.

Leeteuk’s fans have been working with Tree Planet since March to gift Lee Teuk with a forest to celebrate his 32nd birthday as well as his approaching discharge from the army.

Star forest project organized by social venture group Tree Planet is an environmental friendly project that builds forests under the stars’ name with the funds collected from fans.

The fans opened and promoted a fund-raising page to raise money for ‘Leeteuk forest,’ and they were able to raise 6.5 million won, a higher amount than their goal. Around 300 trees, including apple trees, have been planted in ‘Leeteuk forest’ in Mapo district.
