A library may be built in China under Lee Min Ho’s name.
Lee Min Ho’s agency announced on June 3, “Lee Min Ho’s Chinese fan club (Minoz China) is currently in the process of trying to build a library under Lee Min Ho’s name.”
Various fan club members have been building libraries around China in hopes of providing educational opportunities for students living in areas with extreme poverty and lack of education.
The project has been carrying out as a part of the fans’ volunteer services to build a library in selected schools chosen by ′Hope & Justice′ project, backed by China Children and Teenagers Development Funds.
Lee Min Ho’s fans from Baidu previously donated 14 million won to UNICEF and sent over rescue supplies to Ya’an for the earthquake victims. The actor’s fans have also carried out charitable activities by sending free lunches to children in poverty and building wells in the area as a way to show support for The Heirs.
Upon hearing the news, Lee Min Ho said, “The fans’ sincere and devoted activities are really meaningful and touching to me,” as he thanked all his fans in China.
Lee Min Ho’s global fans have also been taking lead in resolving environmental issues. They built ‘Lee Min Ho forest’ in Patagonia, donating hundreds of trees under the actor’s name.
