9:05:00 PM


Traffic may be heavy nowadays, but there's no stopping us from enjoying Shopee's Super Awards!

Shopee, the top online shopping platform in the country, just had its first Shopee Super Awards. It was a night of thanks and acknowledgment, honoring the efforts of its valued partners on the platform. The event emphasized Shopee's dedication to building strong, ongoing partnerships with brands, sellers, creators, and industry allies to ensure shared success.

"The inaugural run of Super Awards here in the Philippines is a testament to our shared dedication and commitment to delivering exceptional experiences to our users," said Vincent Lee, Head of Shopee Philippines. “This is our way of expressing our gratitude to our partners who chose to journey with us; as the key driving force in the success of our platform, we are committed to strengthening these collaborations and forging even more partnerships to achieve even more remarkable milestones together.”

Among the top awardees of the night was retail company INSPI, who was named Brand Partner of the Year. After marking their presence on the platform in 2018, they became one of Shopee’s top apparel brands during the pandemic—even able to come head to head with big local brands. “Shopee allows us to keep growing our customer base. The platform's user-friendly design, expansive reach, and marketing tools have empowered our business to thrive in the digital marketplace,” said Kenny Tsai, CEO of INSPI. “We know the importance of gaining the full trust of our shoppers; that’s why we will continue to work with Shopee to provide our shoppers with the best shopping experience.”

On the other hand, Seller of the Year JG Superstore saw new heights after moving their business online. Owners Oliver and Jill Tan started their business as a small retail store carrying innovative gadgets but would only have as little as one sale per day. After deciding to sell their products in Shopee back in 2016, their business has grown over 10x in the last seven years, with sales seeing at least 3x the GMV during double-digit campaigns. Through the e-commerce platform, they are also able to expand their customer base and reach new customers outside of Metro Manila. To date, they carry 180+ brands and have become a trusted store for various gadgets, equipment, and accessories online.

A&Q Entertainment Level Up and Ventures Into Streaming Through a Filipino-Korean Partnership

7:42:00 AM


Great news for the entertainment industry, A&Q, a neophyte in the Philippine Entertainment industry has leveled up. Here's the story. 

Philippines’ A&Q Entertainment and Prime Stream, Inc. has announced a groundbreaking link with South Korea's Sun Mobile Commerce (SBT) as the two companies signed an agreement on April 6 at their newly opened headquarters in Quezon City.

Atty. Aldwin F. Alegre, CEO and President of A&Q Entertainment and Prime Stream, met with Seo Byung-yul, head of the Philippine corporation of SBT, along with key personalities, to seal the deal of launching a new OTT (Over-the-Top) media service called AQ Prime.


This marks another step forward for A&Q as it aims to be the most recognized brand in handling Filipino entertainment, not just in the Philippines, but also around the world. A&Q Films Production is the company behind the successful 2021 Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF) entry ‘Nelia,’ top-billed by Winwyn Marquez and Raymond Bagatsing.

For its latest venture into the online world, ‘AQ Prime’ is more than geared to operate the entertainment and media streaming platform and online distribution of movies, live events, as well as series, news, sports, and online entertainment shows through free-to-watch titles apart from its premium contents under affordable subscriptions.

“The newly launched OTT service in the Philippines is AQ Prime, which competes with world￾class OTT services such as Netflix, Disney Plus, and Apple TV, and plans to provide unique services by organizing movies and TV programs that are unique to the Philippines,” wrote News Korea, an online news publication in Korea.

The signing ceremony was also attended by Filipino actors, film directors, and broadcasting officials.

AQ Prime has completed principal photography for four full-length feature films: 'Huling Lamay,' a horror film directed by Joven Tan, starring Marlo Mortel, Buboy Villar, and Lou Veloso; 'Z Love' a horror-romance-drama helmed by Jojo Nadela, and led by Devon Seron, Kristof Garcia, Marcus Madrigal, and Rob Sy; as well as the Boys' Love (BL)-themed films ''Sosyal Medya,' with Brenda Mage, DJ Onse, Kristof Garcia, and Mark Aaron Hernandez, under director Greg Colasito; and 'Bingwit,' featuring Krista Miller, Drei Arias, Conan King, and directed by Neal "Buboy" Tan.

Other titles will be revealed on the grand launch of AQ Prime on June 4, 2022. For this investment, SBT targets on investing $2 million in the future along with the initial investment as it continually discovers contents to air on AQ Prime.

“Through SBT’s OTT investment in the Philippines, we want to create a synergistic effect that can be linked to Philippine culture. And our goal is to help make it easier to use OTT services,” said SBT CEO Lee Kwang-rok, who will join the rest of the team on the upcoming launch. This statement is seconded by Atty. Alegre as he believes in the power of OTT. “We want to bring Korean culture in the Philippines' wide landscape of entertainment industry. Moreover, our mission is to also put the Filipino entertainment in everyone’s media.”

For AQ Prime's Chief Operating Officer, Atty. Melanie Honey Quiño, AQ Prime has gained collaborative advantage in order to become more competitive in the business of online streaming. “This partnership is more than just an investment partnership,” Atty. Quiño explained. “It is a collaborative relationship—an agreement to get together and explore streams of opportunities. Our companies shared common goals and visions and we wanted to provide people here and abroad a broad range of entertainment and informative shows.”

The soon-to-be-launched app is expected to be released initially in the Philippines, Korea, Thailand, Singapore, Canada, United Arab Emirates, and in the United States. For collaborations and further inquiries, they can be reached via email at
