[THE INVESTOR] Kia Motors announced on Jan. 3. that it has formed a partnership with YG Entertainment to expand its global cultural marketing combined with K-pop.
As its first project, the carmaker will be the title sponsor of “Blackpink World Tour with Kia,” which will be held in seven Asian cities -- Bangkok, Jakarta, Hong Kong, Manila, Singapore, Kula Lumpur and Taipei -- starting this month.
During the World Tour, it intends to support the members with Kia vehicles for transport and to meet fans through a special promotional video featuring Stinger, the first model in its premium lineup.
