Vely Vely picks Indonesian YouTube star to boost Southeast Asian brand cred

South Korean cosmetic brand Vely Vely is banking on Indonesian YouTube star “Sunnydahye” to increase brand awareness as it launches into Southeast Asia.

Sunnydahye is one of the most popular KoLs in Indonesia with more than 1.8 million subscribers on her YouTube channel. Using Sunnydahye’s influence in Indonesia and across Southeast Asia, Vely Vely hopes to accelerate its overseas market entry.

The brand recently hosted her at its five-story flagship store in the Seoul district of Sangsu-dong.

During her time in South Korea, Sunnydahye was introduced to Vely Vely’s latest beauty line including face mists and eye shadows. The Indonesian KoL later reviewed the products online.

“We are very much pleased to invite Sunnydahye who has a large fan base in Indonesia while the level of interest in K-beauty is increasing in the Southeast Asian region,” said a company spokesperson. “With Sunnydahye, we will be able to introduce Vely Vely and Imvely brands to a greater number of customers in Indonesia.”

Sunnydahye’s video review has attracted more than 250,000 views and 1000 comments, attesting to the South Korean brand’s growing popularity in Indonesia.
