One of Indonesia’s leading e-commerce platform, Shopee, celebrated its third anniversary with a special event. Prior to the main event that will take place in December, Shopee held a pre-event titled Shopee Road to 12.12 Birthday Sale on Monday, 19 November 2018 at Sentul International Convention Center (SICC) with BLACKPINK as guest stars for the night, alongside other Indonesian artists! 🙂
Happy to be Part of Shopee Indonesia
The event, which lasted for two hours, was broadcasted live by four national TV stations in Indonesia. The excitement began by announcing and airing Shopee’s official advertisement with its first Regional Brand Ambassador, BLACKPINK. After the ad was aired, Jisoo, Jennie, Rosé and Lisa finally appeared onstage. Indonesian BLINKs kept on cheering endlessly, welcoming the girls while creating a wonderful sea of pink with their lovely BI-ping-bong.
The ladies of BLACKPINK were beautiful and full of smiles during the event. Aside from Lisa, this was the first time they came to Indonesia. Shopee mentioned BLACKPINK was selected as their ambasaddors was due to their true representation of its brand value and spirit.
Exciting Experience in Indonesia
Rosé shared that filming for the advertisement was very pleasant, because the background set was similar to that of Ddu-Du Ddu-Du’s music video. The only difference was the background color, which was more of orange as per Shopee’s official color instead the original pink.
Lisa conveyed that it was her second time in Indonesia, and she was very happy to meet Indonesian BLINKs once again. She mentioned that BLACKPINK will come back again to Indonesia early next year for a full concert! The girls then wrapped up their Q&A session and moved to the next segment. This time, they were asked to draw lots where four lucky fans will get a prize personally from BLACKPINK.
Special Stages from BLACKPINK
The event then continued with BLACKPINK’s long-awaited performances. The girls kicked off the stage with “As If It’s Your Last”, which had BLINKs going wild. The audience sang together and the pink sea became even more evident.
The excitement level went higher with the next song, ‘Forever Young‘. It was a great mixture of Jisoo’s vocal abilities along with Rosé and Lisa’s dance moves and powerful rap from Jennie.
BLACKPINK concluded the performance with their latest single, ‘Ddu-Du Ddu-Du‘ and even then BLINKs were not ready to say goodbye, as the screams became even louder. The members thanked the fans endlessly while bowing until they waved their final goodbyes.
The Seoul Story would like to thank Three Angles Production for allowing us to cover the event. We hope to see BLACKPINK again soon!
