You read that right, our fellow ARMY—you can take home a Samsung Galaxy S20 BTS Edition plus more exclusive prizes courtesy of Smart Communications!
Last April, the leading telco brand released its *meaningful* campaign with the record-breaking K-pop group titled "Live Your Passion with Purpose." And as usual, our boys went ~beyond the scene~! In their Smart TVC, The Penrose Stairs (a symbol of defying the impossible) was present in the set and it's a touching representation of how BTS encourages every Filo ARMY to believe that life goes on.
Fun fact: Smart is the first local company to seal a direct partnership with BTS under HYBE!
The video, which has 11.8 million views as of writing, is directed by Goh Han Ki, the award-winning director who is also at the helm of other BTS ads. It took over seven months to produce this collab and it was filmed in Seoul at the height of the pandemic. The Smart x BTS campaign is led by Jane J. Basas, SVP and Head of Consumer Wireless Business at Smart, and Joyce A. Ramirez of PublicityAsia, who both made this happen for all of us. “BTS won over the hearts of millions all over the world, not just with their talent, but also with their messages of hope and inspiration. On behalf of Smart, we are very honored to have this partnership with BTS that encourages the Filipino youth to keep their faith and continue pursuing their passion and purpose no matter the challenges the lie ahead,” said Jane.
We know you're also wondering what happened behind the scenes of this campaign and Smart is here to show us just that!
