K-Pop Highway Radio Thank A K-Pop Idol Campaign  


In 2019, we were shocked at the loss of our fave idols, Sulli and Goo Hara. K-Pop fans who have listened for generations, also remember waking up to the sudden loss of Jonghyun of SHINee. Recently, K-Pop stars have started speaking out about mental health and being attacked by netizens. As a small k-pop station, we wondered what we could do.   

so we came up with this:

K-Pop Highway Radio #ThankAKPopIdol Campaign.  

1. Each Sunday we will post a letter to our social media accounts. 

(We’re going A through Z, so we don’t miss anyone).  
2. Get on your SNS accounts (social media).
3. Pay a compliment to or thank an idol/group whose name starts with the letter of the week. 
4. Use the #ThankAKPopIdol hashtag, so others can join in.  

All of the k-pop idols work so hard to bring us great music and great concerts.  Their music makes life better. Join us every Sunday. Show them your love and appreciation for their hard work.

Update: We encourage all k-pop fans to encourage their favorite idols, especially when they are having a hard time. K-Pop idols need love, too.
