“Thekking” is a popular online voting app in South Korea which was developed for fans of K-dramas and K-pop. It conducts a monthly poll with a few categories such as K-Pop Individual, K-Pop Group, and K-Drama Actor.
It is a place for any fandom to do everything they can to show support for their favorite artists through earned rewards such as billboard ads, food truck, or cafe events. Fan votes are based on the number of hearts they give to their idols.
For the month of December, the multi-awarded star, Son Yejin, won in the Korean Wave Actor category.
Meanwhile, Kim Jung-hyun leads the race against Young Tak in the final round for Thekking’s “King Of Kings” with more than 3 million votes.
The winner in the final round will be displayed through digital ads in the following countries: South Korea, Japan, Thailand, Paris, and New York Times Square in USA.
Voting for the final round ends on December 30th.
Kim Jung-hyun is popularly known for his works in Welcome To Waikiki (2018), Crash Landing On You (2020), and Mr. Queen (2021). He won twice as Thekking’s Korean Wave Actor in July and November 2021.
