Whoooo, EXO's Chanyeol has got super thoughtful, dedicated fans!


Back on November 27, Chanyeol celebrated his 25th birthday, so the members of his Chinese fandom 'Chanyeol Bar' paid to put up a birthday ad for him on the Nasdaq Tower Screen in New York City's Times Square!


SEE ALSO: EXO's Chanyeol recently purchased a Mercedes-Benz?


His picture is huge and says in English, "Happy 25th Birthday Park Chan Yeol."  It was up from November 7 to the 15, and it was revealed that the monthly fee for putting up an ad there costs about 3 billion KRW (~ 2.5 million USD), so it's speculated the fans paid about 700 million KRW (~ 600,000 USD).

    What stupid girls. The much more useful and productive things they could've done with this amount of money... Hungry children, sick children, places with no clean drinking water... Ugh. Disgusts me.

    you know their fanclub had done alot of donations already!! if you can even find my comment down there, some of it, Chanyeol fans plant 2,500 trees to build a forest like some of you suggest, EXO fandom in Singapore help in donating CLEAN DRINKING WATER for the typhoon victim (there are 7 fandoms participating and EXO is one of them), Lay fanclub has CONSTRUCT well and public toilet for the village and people in vietnam, Kai's fanclu donate for the leukaemia foundations (you say donate for sick children right? there it is), Lay himself pledge to donate 10 years for his old school and provide scholarship to support those students who wants to pursue art studies, EXO has also donated their income sales from their album to UNICEF (TTS as well), and etc..... if this still disgust you then you are just looking for an excuse to hate.

    that's all great but that doesn't excuse the fact that this billboard was a complete waste of money that could've been put to much better use. That's like saying oh I was mean to this one person but I was nice to all those other ppl so don't pay attention to the time I was mean. This is a stupid waste of money by stupid fan girls. And yes, the thought of the amount of kids that could've been fed today but weren't bc people would rather throw away money like this DISGUSTS ME.
