The Omnibus Law, which was passed on October 5, 2020, has discontented students and workers who protested
on the streets. The ratification of the Omnibus Law has an effect on public opinion-raising activities, both those
who support and who reject the ratification of the Omnibus Law, are crowded on Twitter social media. The active
account of K-Poppers who took part became a line against the opinion of the Omnibus Law, so a question arises
whether this is a phenomenon of the rise of political awareness of K-Poppers in Indonesia? This study analyzes
the role of K-Poppers in socio-political movements in several countries globally, especially in Indonesia. The
type of research used is a case study of the K-Poppers movement in the case of the ratification of the Omnibus
Law as the subject in writing this paper. Collecting data using Social Network Analysis (SNA) and observing
the activities of K-Poppers in Indonesia when parliament passed the controversial Omnibus Law. The results
of this study indicate that Indonesian K-Poppers maximize their function as part of Indonesian citizens to
express their political stance. They also showed their political involvement when creating hashtags, organizing
other K-Pop crowds, and at the same time providing support to activists who rejected the Omnibus Law.
