      A forest in Ningxia in northwest China will be named after singer Kim Jang-hoon, Kim's agency said on Thursday.

      According to the agency, Kim planted 12,000 trees in the desert in Ningxia and Inner Mongolia from May at a cost of W300 million (US$1=W1,090). He donated some of the money himself and received the rest from corporate donations.

      As a token of thanks, the local government of Ningxia has decided to name the newly created forest in his honor.

      The agency said a marble sign will also be installed bearing the name of the forest, while Kim will be named an honorary ambassador for environmental protection in Ningxia at an event in March.
