NCTzens (as how NCT’s fans are called) seem to love some lighthearted fun when they managed to get NCT member Yuta say “Salamat Shopee” in his V Live today, June 26, and fans are laughing it out loud!
Yuta opened a V Live session tonight on NCT’s V Live channel where he talked to fans and read some of their comments. Some Filipino NCTzens then jokingly asked him — through chat — to say “Salamat Shopee.” Although a little confused, Yuta read and said the phrase!
You can hear him say it at the 12:56 mark:
Funnily, the news managed to reach Shopee Philippines, and they quote-retweeted a video of that particular section of Yuta’s V Live.

Turns out, Yuta joins the apparently growing list of gullible “victims” who have fallen for Filipinos proclivity for playful moments. Fans mentioned The Boyz members Kevin and Sangyeon also saying the phrase during their respective V Live sessions.
“Salamat Shopee” is a phrase often asked by TV show host Willie Revillame from his viewers when they win prizes in a segment in his show “Wowowin.” It rose to trendy popularity after a viewer cursed him on air after saying the phrase.
