Wondrous 28th Birthday of Yoona
On May 30, as usual, Yoona’s birthday was enlivened by her close friends and fans. Yoona’s instagram account was filled with birthday wishes from SONEs around the world. Not only online wishes, either, her fans had various unique gifts for her.
This year, her fans give her the most meaningful gift, ever. Yoona’s fans in China built a school, and called it the “Yoona Lim Primary School of Hope”, to celebrate her birthday! The school is located in Yunnan, China, and the opening ceremony was held at the second semester of 2018.
The fans also held a photo exhibition, titled “Yoon Way & Hope”, in Beijing, Shanghai, and Chengdu which was scheduled to be held around April and May. All the earnings from this photo exhibition were being donated to the Yoona Lim Primary School of Hope.
It seems like the fans behaved the way Yoona does. Yoona is known as a generous celebrity in South Korea, who is often involved in charity work. Let’s hope this school will offer hope and a future to children who haven’t had many other opportunities.
