JYJ‘s Yoochun has become the new blue chip of the advertising industry, thanks to the number of deals he’s landed this year.
In 2011 alone, Yoochun was the endorsement model for Tio, Nintendo Wii, Black Smith, and Ottogi Ramen. This list only points out his solo works, as he’s also scored endorsements with NII, Penzal-Q, LG Optimus Q2, and other brands with JYJ.
Representatives of C-JeS Entertainment revealed, “He receives at least one or two CF offers a day. We believe it’s because it’s harder to see him in dramas or performances, so his scarcity makes his value go up.”
According to the label, Yoochun’s smooth, warm image does wonders in bolstering a brand’s image, which helps them advance their sales.
Yoochun is currently on break to work on JYJ’s upcoming album, and is also reviewing potential drama offers.
Korean movie “Papa” is about Chunseob (Park Yong Woo), a manager who goes to America in search of a junior manager who ran away with a singer. He then finds himself in an unexpected contract marriage which results in the birth of six children.
Go Ara plays the role of Chunseob eldest daugher, Jun, who posesses good singing ability, and becomes a star in the US. Ara said, “For about 2 months prior to filming, I practiced dance, the guitar and singing,” and “(prior to debut) I had trained with 2 members of Girls’ Generation, so that experience was useful in the filming of the movie.”
Labelmates BoA and Yunho of TVXQ from SM Entertainment, gave her dance and acting advice. “BoA came to the filming site to teach me English. Also, ‘masculine’ dancing was required in the film, so it was not easy to do. I met Yunho in the office once or twice, and he helped to check my dance, telling me ‘You must put in your utmost effort.’ “
From 10 December to 25 December, at the front entrance of the 1st floor of Hall A in the Seibu Shibuya Store, Two rose trees inspired by Tohoshinki’s new single ‘Winter Rose’, made in the image of Yunho and Changmin will be exhibited here in a last minute decision!
