Globe customers, Kpop fans, and BLACKPINK fans ended last week in a high as Globe Kmmunity reunited them with record-breaking K-pop quartet, BLACKPINK last June 18 for a “Show You Like That: An Exclusive Show for the Ultimate Globe Fans.” Given the pandemic and its restrictions, Globe was still able to create a one-of-a-kind experience and brought the Philippines closer to JENNIE, JISOO, ROSÉ AND LISA, and likewise, the girls to their dearest fans in the Philippines.
“A lot of us have been deprived of experiences that bring delight ever since the pandemic which is why we are more than happy to serve our customers with exclusive experiences and exciting treats like this show together with global ambassadors, BLACKPINK,” said Issa Guevarra-Cabreira, Globe’s Chief Commercial Officer.
Unboxing Globe’s balikbayan box
Filipino fans suggested Pinoy items for the girls to unbox as a way of bringing the Philippines to the girls. BLACKPINK was surprised as they learned more about the Philippines. The girls unboxed a balikbayan box where they tinkered with uniquely Pinoy items like a ukulele, abaniko, banig, and a miniature version of the Philippine jeepney. JENNIE even tried her hand at playing jackstones!
Designing their own Globe At Home x BLACKPINK modems
JENNIE, JISOO, ROSÉ, and LISA also had fun making their unique personalities come alive as they designed their own limited edition Globe At Home x BLACKPINK modems.
LISA displayed her fondness for cats and UFOs with the stickers while ROSÉ went wild with gemstones to represent “wild beauty.”
Remembering the warmth of the Philippines on her last visit, JISOO placed a sticker of a palm tree on her Globe At Home x BLACKPINK modem to commemorate her trip.
Lastly, JENNIE opted for a clean and simple design that would still emphasize the Globe At Home modem is a limited edition. She hopes that this reminds fans to enjoy Globe At Home’s internet connectivity at home!
BLACKPINK’s Reaction to BLACKPINK fans’ dance covers and tribute video
The girls then watched and reacted to daebak dance covers of their popular hits like Pretty Savage and Love Sick Girls. The girls were really delighted with how passionate their fans from the Philippines are, admiring their style, expression, and moves.
JISOO said that she would want to see these performances live while JENNIE was genuinely surprised at the talent of their Pinoy fans especially how they were able to pick up their choreographies accurately.
While watching the tribute video from their fans, the girls reminisced special moments with their fans and had nothing but utmost appreciation for the effort. “I thought I was really getting used to the contact-free life, but seeing these clips from our concert and our fans really hit me how long it’s been since I last saw our fans, and how much I miss them,” said JENNIE.
