KakaoTalk, Korea’s largest mobile messaging application, revealed its latest ambassadors in the Philippines, Alden Richards and Louise delos Reyes, during Kakao’s lucky fans night for a hundred of its most active users.
Louise and Alden will appear in Kakao’s new TVC campaign that showcases different scenarios with the pair interacting with KakaoTalk Friends such Muzi, Con, Frodo, Neo, Apeach and Jay-G. The new TVC is set to air on September 21, 2013.
“We are extremely excited to welcome Alden and Louise to the KakaoTalk family,” says Tim Jang, director of Kakao Philippines. “Alden and Louise are the perfect addition as they represent and embody our brand character: young, cool and fun. The public will be amazed on the next phase of our campaign where Alden and Louise are part of.”
Apart from the introduction of the two new ambassadors, fans were treated to a special night of games and surprises, along with a special message from Big Bang. The lucky fans night was concluded with a mini-concert by Sarah Geronimo as she sang her single “Ikot-Ikot“
“We cannot thank the fans enough for the overwhelming support that we’ve received since our launch in mid-August. In such a short period of time, we have topped the charts in the iOS App Store and Google Play,” added Jang. “We will continue to release content specifically for the Philippine market, such as the Sarah Geronimo emoticons and soon Louise and Alden stickers.”
Fans can now look forward to adding Louise and Alden on KakaoTalk’s Plus Friend to receive the latest updates from the duo such as pictures and videos. Free animated emoticons, stickers and theme, will soon be available in KakaoTalk’s Item Store.
