A discussion about idol groups and their fanclubs’ gifting culture was had during the episode of SBS’ ‘Late Night TV Entertainment’ that aired on the 27th.
On this day, the staff of the show discussed the fandom gifting culture in Korea, which has evolved from giving gifts to stars to donating in their names. A staff member asked a representative of a rice wreath organization, “Whose fans have donated the most rice?”
He explained, “The fans of TVXQ’s Shim Changmin have donated approximately 47 tons. This has a monetary value of over 100 million Won. The total value would be 150 million Won if one adds the price of the wreaths as well.”
