Smart brings you a better K-Entertainment with free Viu Premium subscription
Smart Communications, Inc. recently announced its partnership with Viu, a leading pan-regional streaming service operated by Viu International Limited to launch its newest offering – the new GIGA K-Video data pack. Aside from the newest offering, they also launch the newest Smart endorser which is no other than Korean superstar Park Seo Joon.
Bringing the Better K-Life to Filipinos
The new Smart GIGA K-Video is the first-ever data pack in the Smart GIGA family that comes with a Viu Premium subscription, allowing Filipinos to access latest Korean content with unlimited downloads and an uninterrupted, no-ads experience, making it a total level-up K-Life experience that Filipinos can enjoy.
Ms. Jane J. Basas, Senior Vice President and Head of Consumer Wireless Business, Smart, said, “Korean dramas have seeped into our local pop culture and turned into a big passion for many Filipinos. We know that Viu has played a pivotal role in bringing the best of Korean entertainment to the country, so through this partnership, we aim to make it simpler and easier for our subscribers to immerse in their love for K- Life with the latest content on Viu.”
Ms. Helen Sou, Chief Business Officer, Asia, Viu, said, “With people now online more than ever, Smart’s promise of making amazing experiences simple and accessible to every Filipino matches our goal of bringing the best viewing experience to our users. Launching the GIGA K-Video pack with Smart will allow its subscribers to easily enjoy the best of Korean entertainment in the best way possible – through the Viu Premium experience.”
‘K-Lang Yan’ with Park Seo Jun
To promote this newest Smart GIGA offer, they launch a multimedia campaign with Korean superstar Park Seo Joon. The award-winning actor joins Smart’s growing roster of Korean celebrity endorsers, reinforcing Smart’s thrust to bring Filipinos closer to their passions. Park Seo Joon’s shows are frequently top titles in Viu Philippines.
In his TV commercial, Park Seo Jun says “K-Lang Yan”, a wordplay suggesting things will be fine and that Korean shows bring delight to viewers by enabling them to immerse in an alternative reality.
Park Seo Jun said, “Filipinos and Koreans uphold common values especially when it comes to love for family and friends, and I think this is one of the reasons K-dramas resonate well with many Filipino viewers. I am thankful for this opportunity to encourage more Filipinos to discover and enjoy more Korean content and to take a breather from these uncertain times.”
Ms. Basas rationalized, “Anyone who has watched a Korean drama or variety show can attest to their special magic. Of course, this includes Park Seo Jun’s hit K-dramas like She Was Pretty and What’s Wrong with Secretary Kim which make him the perfect endorser for this campaign.”
Available to all Smart Prepaid and TNT customers, GIGA K-Video 99 data pack comes with a 7-day Viu Premium subscription, 1 GB of data for Viu every day for 7 days, plus 2 GB of open access data. Subscribers can register for GIGA K-Video by dialing *123# and will soon be available via the GigaLife App.
