Crayon Pop Release Collaborative Song to Support Firefighters

Girl group Crayon Pop and singer Kim Jang-hoon have joined forces to support firefighters by releasing a collaborative song in their honor called "Hero."

Sporting loose red jackets and alarm sirens, the girls held a press event in Seoul on Wednesday to mark the release of the new single. They said they jumped on Kim's suggestion that they work together on a song aimed at raising awareness of the dangers firefighters are often exposed to as well as their heroic status.
