@Macintosh991, I'm in the US region and was able to watch The Last Princess on Amazon Prime.

 

Does anyone who speak or understand Korean watch K-movies on Amazon Prime? The reason I ask is because I feel like the subs on Amazon Prime is not good, iffier than Netflix. I recently re-watched My Sassy Girl on AP, and while I don’t speak or understand Korean, I can’t help but feel the subs are incorrect.

 

I also watched The Last Princess on AP, along with The Truth Beneath and The Tower, for those who want to know which SYJ movies are on AP.

Son Ye Jin makes her mark as Smart Signature endorser

 

Smart SYJ1
After capturing the hearts of Filipinos with her hit K-dramas, South Korean superstar Son Ye Jin is making her mark as the new face of Smart Signature, the postpaid brand of mobile services provider Smart Communications, Inc.

The big announcement came two months after PLDT's wireless subsidiary launched its ‘Simple, Smart Ako’ campaign, which set off a strong clamor for Smart to bring Son Ye Jin under its fold and closer to her Filipino fans.

Making her own mark

“Son Ye Jin’s appeal is undeniable among Filipinos who have been swept by the Korean wave, and we are thrilled to fulfill their wish. This is one way of supporting the Hallyu passion of our customers, who put their trust in our network so they can binge-watch the latest K-dramas, stream K-Pop hits, and stay updated on their K-idols online,” says Jane J. Basas, Senior Vice President and Head of Consumer Wireless Business at Smart.

“More than this, we know Son Ye Jin embodies the Smart Signature brand as it simplifies the postpaid experience so customers can make their mark in their career or passion,” she adds.

“As an actress, I am always grateful for having a platform to entertain and touch the lives of others through my craft. I thank Smart for giving me a way to specifically reach out to my Filipino fans and inspire them to make a mark in whatever path that they have chosen. I wish to see you all soon,” says Son Ye Jin, who earned the title ‘Queen of Melodramas’ in South Korea for her string of hit series and movies.

“Simple. Smart Ako.”

In Smart’s latest TV ad, Son Ye Jin confidently rides a motorcycle and navigates the city through the fast lane, alluding to the prioritized, worry-free, and elevated lifestyle that Smart Signature provides its customers, powered by the country’s fastest mobile data network. The ad also powerfully ends with Son Ye Jin affirming, “Simple. Smart Ako.”

“’Simple, Smart Ako' gave us a clear guiding principle when it comes to serving our customers – that is, to make amazing experiences and cutting-edge technology simple and accessible to every Filipino. We are embracing this same approach as we commit to simplifying the postpaid experience so our postpaid customers can enjoy a Signature lifestyle,” says Alfredo S. Panlilio, Smart President and CEO and PLDT Chief Revenue Officer.


Prioritized, worry-free, and elevated lifestyle
 
With Smart Signature, subscribers are prioritized to get first dibs on new technology and mobile innovation as well as the latest digital content. The recent launch of Smart 5G as a commercial service is proof of this as the initial phase covers provision for all Smart Signature customers, who can now enjoy blazing-fast data speeds on Smart 5G-certified devices at select Smart 5G spots in Metro Manila.

With its well-designed plans, Smart Signature also keeps postpaid subscribers worry-free when it comes to connecting with family and friends, or staying online for work, play, or entertainment. Smart Signature caters to different lifestyles by offering SIM-Only or Device Plans that come in S, M, L, and XL. Each plan features generous data inclusions starting at 5 GB for only P999 per month to up to 60 GB for only P2,999 per month, so customers can go from virtual work meetings to streaming the latest K-dramas on their phone with ease.  

Smart Signature also delivers an elevated lifestyle for loyal customers, who can enjoy perks and rewards through points earned via MVP Rewards, among other unique experiences and privileges awaiting subscribers throughout the year.

Country’s fastest mobile data network

Smart Signature is powered by Smart LTE, which has been recognized by third-party analytics firms as the country’s fastest mobile data network.

Ookla, the global leader in internet testing and analysis, cited Smart as The Philippines’ Speedtest Awards Winner for mobile network speed during Q1-Q4 2019. To win this award, Smart achieved a Speed Score™ of 17.40, with average speeds of 19.62 Mbps for download and 9.45 Mbps for upload.

On the other hand, Opensignal, an independent mobile analytics firm, reported in its April 2020 Mobile Network Experience Report for the Philippines that Smart remained ahead of the competition in terms of Video Experience, Upload and Download Speed Experience, Voice App Experience, Games Experience, and 4G Availability.

Short and sweet article about SYJ’s Smart commercial. She’s an English queen! Hollywood better be ready for her
 

https://www.wheninmanila.com/5-fun-facts-about-son-ye-jin-smart-commercial/

 

YJ is really very very professional and always gives her best in whatever she does --> she challenges herself by doing the entire voice-over on her own.

 

On the other hand, we can also see her dorky and cute side when she "unexpectedly posted" her Ducati BTS on her IG --> Spoiler Queen. 

 

Though I must say, I am a teeny weeny bit disappointed that Smart brought YJ onboard only after fans requested "so that Capt Ri would not be lonely". Nevertheless, it is still a great blessing that we can see BinJin together again in the same frame soon (after Baeksang)!!

I agree! I was so looking forward to hearing her speak in English for this CF since we got Hollywood news, but she blew me away by doing the complete voice over! And it’s soooo good.

 

And it is a bit sad that it wasn’t in their initial plans but it all works out in the end! They surely get their money’s worth by having SYJ as an endorser

Totally agree!! I find YJ's articulation really good in the Smart CF. Her English has improved a great deal from the time she spoke to the Swiss lady in CLOY. So proud of YJ!

 

By getting Binjin to endorse their products is a really smart move by SMART. 

Individually, HB is very popular and YJ is highly sought after.

However as a package, this golden couple is PEERLESS.

 

Their upcoming joint CF will surely break the internet.

I really like YJ here - her hair, her smile, her dress. She looks like her character in AMTR (Kim Su Jin) --> she's hardly aged since then!

 

First time see her wearing a mask --> very cute. And she is so warm and friendly towards those working with her. Absolutely no airs whatsoever. Very humble and down to earth. Love her!

I just love her that I asked SMART for my Son Ye Jin desk standee if any as a Smart signature subscriber, they said they don’t have it yet. I’ll definitely wait for that. 
 

As for the trend, I was amazed of the support from the international fans... speechless. I was a proud twitter addict for today, for the Love of Son Ye Jin (not into Socmed much but becoming one).  Cheers to SYJ’s success.

It Seems Like Son Ye Jin And Hyun Bin Will Be Having Their Own *Mini-Love Story* In Smart's New Campaign

son-ye-jin-new-smart-endorser-1596448631

 

Yup, our fave K-drama couple from Crash Landing On You is *reuniting*! In June, Smart launched Hyun Bin as the brand's newest endorser, released Hyun Bin merch, and even confirmed that he will definitely be flying to the Philippines as soon as possible.

 

During a press conference today, August 3, Smart confirmed that Son Ye Jin is joining Hyun Bin as an endorser, this time for Smart Signature! Speculations about the project were all over the internet ever since Ye Jin posted a video of her getting on a motorcycle in the city, which mirrored Smart's video teasers

 
 

In a recorded interview with Smart, Son Ye Jin said that she wants to go back to the PH (she actually visited the country 10 years ago)! The Smart team says that Son Ye Jin and Hyun Bin visiting the PH together is totally a possibility.

We're positive that there will also be an ad of Son Ye Jin and Hyun Bin together, since the commercial hints that they are in the same location, with Ye Jin riding a motorcycle and Hyun Bin inside a car. She even ~glances back~ to look at the car's driver. That's one more thing to look forward to while we're waiting for them to visit us here! 

 
 

Crash Landing On You, which aired from 2019 to 2020, tells the story of a South Korean heiress named Yoon Se Ri (Son Ye Jin) who lands in North Korea after a paragliding accident. She meets a soldier, Captain Ri (Hyun Bin). who helps her get back home, and the two fall in love in the process. The drama became such a hit in the PH that people were even visiting filming locations and creating their own CLOY-inspired photoshoots

Really well done commercial - congrats to SYJ, her team and Smart!!!

 

I agree with everyone here who said her English is definitely much improved since CLOY. I was surprised she did the voiceover herself.
