Chinese K-pop star Tao’s fans will create a forest in Gangnam, Seoul, in celebration of his upcoming birthday on May 2.

The plan has been mapped out since November last year, under the name “Tao Forest Project.”

Over 200 fans chipped in to raise 10,030,000 won -- double the initial 5 million won target.

Tao’s Korean fan club “XOTAO” and Chinese fan base “BaiduTaoBar,” along with more from Australia, Middle East and Japan participated.

The Tao Forest will be built in Cheongsu Park, in an accessible location close to the Cheongdam subway station.

Forests are increasingly becoming a popular way for K-pop fans to express their love for stars. EXO’s other members Chen, D.O., Baekhyun, and Lay also have forests in their name.
