A Smart-BTS endorsement deal opens up the possibility for the Kppp global superstar to visit Manila in the near future.
Smart has been doling out big money for Korean endorsers, having earlier bagged contracts with reel-to-real couple Hyun Bin and Son Ye-Jin of the hit series “Crash Landing on You.”
