Southeast Asia’s eCommerce platform Lazada is welcoming SEVENTEEN as their first Lazada Happiness Ambassadors ahead of its annual flagship 11.11 shopping festival – Lazada’s Biggest One-Day Sale, starting at midnight on November 11.
SEVENTEEN has become one of South Korea’s most acclaimed K-pop groups, burst into the international music scene with their creative musical experimentation and electrifying performance acts. SEVENTEEN’s latest EP Your Choice debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top Album Sales Chart, and their list of accolades includes being nominated for Top Social Artist at the 2021 Billboard Music Awards and winning the Main Prize for four years at the Seoul Music Awards.
Raymond Yang, Chief Operating Officer of Lazada Group, said, “It is my great delight to welcome our first-ever Lazada Happiness Ambassadors, SEVENTEEN, to the Lazada family. With their talent and lively personalities, I hope SEVENTEEN can inspire our consumers across Southeast Asia to stay bold and passionate in experimenting new ideas, and to continue pursuing goals and dreams with the trust that challenges along the way can be overcome.”
At Lazada’s signature 11.11 Super Show on November 10, SEVENTEEN will take the main stage to perform their hit songs like “Left & Right” and “Ready to love.” The virtual concert will also feature top local celebrities in Southeast Asia coming together to celebrate hope and joy, including appearances from Nora Danish and Dayang Nurfaizah from Malaysia. Across Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam, shoppers can also tune in to Lazada’s 11.11 Super Party concert via Lazada’s in-app livestream channel LazLive, as well as local broadcasting networks TV3 and Lazada social media platforms, across YouTube, Facebook, and TikTok.
The 13-member group also stars in Lazada’s latest 11.11 short film, which transports the Lazada Happiness Ambassadors into Lazada World, a dynamic and fantastical realm filled with larger-than-life everyday objects and exclusive 11.11 rewards.
Speaking as a group, SEVENTEEN said, “Shooting Lazada’s 11.11 film was a fun and refreshing experience, and we are excited to be a part of the upcoming Lazada 11.11 Super Show. As the regional Happiness Ambassadors for Southeast Asia’s leading eCommerce platform, Lazada, we look forward to create even more meaningful experiences with everyone.
