K-pop group BLACKPINK will perform in the Waktu Indonesia Belanja (WIB) TV Show (Indonesia Shopping Time TV Show), an event held by e-commerce platform Tokopedia, on Nov. 25 at 8 p.m.
The performance will air on television channels NET., SCTV and Indosiar, as well as streamed on Tokopedia's YouTube channel.
According to the event’s page, the group will take part in several activities, such as games on Tuesday at 6 p.m. and Nyicip Nasi Goreng Bareng BLACKPINK (tasting fried rice with BLACKPINK) on Wednesday at 9:30 p.m. The activities can be watched on the e-commerce streaming feature Tokopedia PLAY.
Tokopedia has also organized various online giveaways in the weeks leading up to the main event, including by giving away BLACKPINK’s albums and light sticks. In short videos featuring each member posted on social media, BLACKPINK promoted the event and talked about Indonesia-related topics.
Jisoo, for instance, mentioned three Indonesian dishes that she knew, such as nasi goreng (fried rice), rendang (meat slow-cooked in coconut milk and spices) and bakwan (vegetable fritters).
As for Rosé, she invited people to watch the event. “First off, there’ll be promotions and fun activities that we promise will cheer you up,” Rosé said. “And number two, of course, BLACKPINK will be there too.”
Aside from BLACKPINK, the event will also feature public figures Vincent, Desta, Enzy Storia, Hesti Purwadinata, Jang Hansol and Kyungrim Park.
Following its debut in 2016, BLACKPINK released its long-awaited first full-length album The Album on Oct. 2. Managed under South Korean agency YG Entertainment, the group became the second most subscribed music act on YouTube with 48.8 million subscribers in October.
Prior to BLACKPINK, Tokopedia featured K-pop sensation BTS for its WIB event in July. (wir/wng)
