Daebak! The Filipino ARMY Universe is Getting Bigger with a New Smart Collab

Isn’t this the smartest combo ever? *mic drop*

Filipino ARMY are in for a treat with this dope collaboration of the animated Bangtan Boys, TinyTAN, as part of Smart’s “New Universe” experience

Two months since BTS Festa, ARMY has more proof now that Chapter Two of BTS is looking to be more exciting than ever. While everyone initially thought that the boys were going to be on a dreaded hiatus, they will only be taking a break from major group activities and will focus on their solo projects. So yes, we’ll still be seeing them on the reg.

Since this announcement, each Bangtan member is getting the hang of pursuing their interests and partnering with the who’s who in the music industry. From V having his fashion moment in France for Paris Fashion Week, to Jung Kook enjoying another week at the top with his feature on Charlie Puth’s track, to J-Hope becoming the first South Korean to headline Lollapalooza, to RM and Suga prepping for their respective music ventures, and to Jin and Jimin (along with V and Jung Kook) featuring in a song with benny blanco and Snoop Dogg—the 21st-century music icons have only barely scratched the surface.

With every VLive, Bangtan Bomb, and new vLogs by the Tannies, ARMY is really feeling the euphoria of being well-fed with fire content despite not being constantly together like they used to. 

But, hold up! Just as the boys may be going on a break from group activities, a bunch of familiar faces are also getting their share of the spotlight this time. Not to steal their thunder, their animated counterparts, TinyTAN, are also here to make some noise with their latest collaboration with the Philippines’ very own, Smart Communications.

Permission to collab

Following the successful endorsement of BTS with telecommunications giant, Smart, the cutest TinyTAN members are sweetly taking center stage this time to bring a ton of delight to Filipino ARMY.

Launched in 2019 and licensed by BigHit Music under Hybe Co., Ltd, TinyTAN, the animated version of the most popular South Koreans of the 21st century, Bangtan Sonyeondan (BTS), projects a personality that is pretty much a representation of each BTS member with a unique narrative in the TinyTAN universe.

“In the same way that we enable fans to connect with their favorite idols through mobile technology, we always go the extra mile in empowering our subscribers to live more and make the most of their passions,” said Francis E. Flores, SVP and Head of Consumer Business Group–Individual at Smart.

Through this joining of forces with Smart, subscribers can experience the fastest mobile network with their Smart SIM TinyTAN Edition that comes with one character card in each pack. And just like a true ARMY, collecting is definitely part of the game. Fans can collect a total of eight special edition TinyTan character cards by simply purchasing a 5G-ready SIM pack ready to connect them with fellow fans, family, and friends.

From ‘My Universe’ to ‘Smart Universe’

More than the aegyo, the cutest boyband in the world’s new adventure will surely make every Filo ARMY thrilled to have the “Magic Door” open to the Philippine telecommunications company. 

Smart Prepaid subscribers can get one TinyTAN character card with every purchase of the 5G-ready Smart SIM TinyTAN edition. The special edition SIM card comes with up to 11 GB of open-access data for all sites and apps, plus calls and texts to other networks for only PHP 45.

And to be even more updated with their idols, subscribers can extend the fun through calling, texting, and staying online using their Smart Load Card TinyTAN Edition available in denominations of PHP 100, PHP 300, and PHP 500.

“Our special collaboration with TinyTAN is in line with our efforts to go beyond providing our subscribers with world-class connectivity but also delighting them with special lifestyle experiences and rewards,” said Flores.

This coming together is more than just entering “My Universe” but part of the all-new “Smart Universe” experience. Smart subscribers get special and exclusive treats, rewards, and offers that are definitely in tune with their various passions. As we’re about to see what’s yet to come, there’s nothing really tiny about this new universe.
