Have you ever been to Jeju Island? Are you a big fan of G-Dragon? Then you should go the 'Kwon Ji Yong Forest'!
G-Dragon is regarded as a skilled producer, and has worked on other singers’ albums as well as most of BIGBANG's hit songs. Besides music, he's a world renowned name in the fashion industry, modeling industry, entertainment industry and more. For such a talented being, don't you think an entire forest should be named after him?
According to the letter from 'Always-GD' - a G-Dragon fan site, the goal of this project was to aim to keep our nature beautiful in the name of G-Dragon, and to keep him forever in our hearts. They also hope that many will visit and support their project.
The Seogwipo Citrus Museum, which is located in Jeju Island, held a grand opening event for 'Kwon Ji Yong Forest No. 1.' on May 14. As you know, 'Kwon Ji Yong' is G-Dragon's Korean name. One of G-Dragon's many loyal fan sites, Always-GD, has helped crowdfund this project to celebrate the artists' birthday.
In the museum forest, there are 50 trees that will be cared for by the museum. The Tree Company will be donating all of benefits to charity, while some of citrus will be used for a citrus picking experience for tourist.
