Good Entertainment, Lee Minwoo’s management company commented on the 4th, “There was a message left by a foreign fan on Shinhwa’s homepage at end-October, proposing the “5 Dollar Project” for foreign fans to buy Lee Minwoo’s 2nd album.”
According to Good Entertainment, the overseas fans’ “5 Dollar Project” collected US$5 dollars (approximately KRW$5000) from fans in America, Australia, Europe and Asia, where the album was not sold. They would send the money to Korea and buy the albums through local fans and distribute it.
In this way, the local fans are happy to have Lee Minwoo widely known overseas while the overseas fans are happy to buy the M albums that they want creating a interdependance of aid between Lee Minwoo fans.
In the past two weeks, these overseas fans have gathered an amount that is equivalent to around 250 copies of Lee Minwoo’s 2nd album.
Good Entertainment revealed, “Since its something the fans are doing on their own, as a company we cannot help them specifically but Lee Minwoo is planning to show his thanks to the overseas fans soon.”
