Korean Hatsune Miku Fans Celebrated 3/9 Day By Buying Subway Billboard Space For 4 Weeks
How would you celebrate 3/9 day (Miku Day)? Some Hatsune Miku fans in South Korea came up with the idea to show their love by purchasing some advertising space at the Seoul Sadang subway station.
25 fans pitched in for the fundraiser that began in January 2016, and raised a total of 2,766,977 South Korean Won, or around $2400 USD. This was used to commission the artwork (seen above) from the illustrator BTRP, and purchase the billboard advertising space from February 22nd until March 22nd. The artwork is available on Pixiv in high resolution, so it can be used as a wallpaper!
March 9th is a popular Hatsune Miku appreciation day among fans, since “39” can sound like “Miku” when mixing old and new forms of Japanese. It also sounds like “Thank You”, which is where the “appreciation” part comes into play. So how did you celebrate your 39’s day?
