Kim Seonho’s ad is now up at one of the most iconic, spectacular, largest LED signages in the world, NASDAQ billboard in New York City.
In January 2022, Kim Seonho won the Korean Wave Actor through the poll conducted by THEKKING. He received more than 4 million votes from fans and ranked first place. As a result, he earned a digital ad at New York’s Time Square which will be displayed from February 24 to March 2, 2022.
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.
Winners for the K-Drama Wave Actors in 2021 whose ads were also displayed at New York’s Times Square include Lee Minho, Kim Go-eun, Kim Jung-hyun, Shin Hae-sun, Cha Eun-woo, Yook Sung-jae, and Son Ye-jin.
Congratulations, Kim Seonho and Seonhohada fans!
