Television personality Kim Na-young won an award for promoting the social media industry, and novelist Lee Oi-su also won an award for contributing to the social media industry.

The SNSIDI was formed to promote a healthy social media culture and its industrial growth in Korea, and holds an annual awards ceremony to recognize individual contributions.

Kim has “positively promoted” the active use of social media, as assessed by the SNSIDI. Kim opened a forum for her published book on social media accounts, ranging from discussions over its cover design to its title, and also broke the news of her marriage on Instagram in April.
