‘The Inevitable Drone Show’ Gathers 200,000 Virtual Guests In One-Of-A-Kind Performance By Ben&Ben

MANILA, Philippines — Held at the Burnham Green in Rizal Park, Manila, Smart and award-winning folk pop OPM band Ben&Ben collaborated on a special musical and visual treat: “The Inevitable Drone Show.” This online event also capped the weekend when Smart released the sequel to Hyun Bin and Son Ye Jin’s latest TVC.   

Ben&Ben’s “Inevitable,” which is also the theme song of the latest campaign starring Hyun Bin and Son Ye Jin, inspired Smart subscribers who were able to watch the spectacle online.   

“No matter how hard life can hit us, [we just have] to really just keep being real, keep being true, keep being good people, and take things one day at a time because the good things are inevitable. I think that’s what we wanted to share—the message of the song,” says Ben&Ben lead vocalist Paolo Benjamin during a recent press conference.   

“The first and probably the most immediate reason why we accepted this project is because it merges different forms of art with technology to create a one-of-a-kind experience for our audience. Some of us have experienced drone shows before, but only set to pre-existing songs and records. The opportunity to actually score and record the music and live performance to one such show was something we could just not pass up on,” he added.

Nothing but love from BinJin, Ben & Ben fans  

Those who tuned in and fell in love all over again with the song “Inevitable” last Sunday at 7pm. The light show powered by 100 drones was the perfect representation of Ben & Ben supporters called Liwanags. The fact that drones lit the darkness of night had fans of the band pointing out this meaningful event for them.  To the BinJin fans, it was the perfect gift to their perfect couple – A Filipino song powered by technology made possible by the creativity of Filipinos.

Hearts and sunflower emojis also dominated the comments section with most of the viewers ecstatic over hearing the song live and seeing the “magic” of synchronized drones happening right before their very eyes.

This is the kind of spell BinJin does as social media went wild the day Smart released the new Hyun Bin and Son Ye Jin TVC last February 14. The hashtag #InSmartWeTrust has had a life on its own as posts requesting and begging for a joint commercial film featuring the former Crash Landing On You stars poured in for months leading to the February launch. 

Smart had to make things happen and it was definitely worth the wait for Filipino fans and smart subscribers who are self-confessed #BinJinForSmart supporters.
