[TRANS] 111221 Why Is Park Yoochun Considered As The Next Lee Seung Gi In The Advertising Industry?

[TRANS] 111221 Why Is Park Yoochun Considered As The Next Lee Seung Gi In The Advertising Industry?
Written by TheRarasaurus

JYJ member Park Yoochun is currently gunning for the position of the second Lee Seung Gi.

Park Yoochun recently became the model for a new product launched by a famous food brand, with his unique smile that catches the hearts of women, coupled with his humming along to the product name “Gismyun,” netizens who watched the ad said “You can’t help but want to buy it and eat it,” “Park Yoochun looks too sweet, let’s go buy ramyun” and other responses.

Aside from this, Park Yoochun has also appeared in an ad for a famous computer game, and is featured together with members Kim Jaejoong and Kim Junsu in a pharmaceutical ad, getting involved in various types of ads, proving that he is gaining a reasonable amount of attention in the advertising industry.

And the reason why Park Yoochun has been chosen for more solo ads in comparison to his fellow members, should be because of the healthy, gentle image which he possesses. A representative from a large advertising firm said, “Park Yoochun is not considered as a star with exceptional looks, but one that possesses a natural and healthy image. And as a member of JYJ, he has a certain level of popularity, and is an ideal spokesperson appealing to consumers in their teens and 20s.”

Another person from the advertising industry said, “After becoming active as an actor, he has gained a certain amount of recognition among not only the younger age groups, but in the middle to older age groups as well. Currently, there are quite a number of advertisers that wish for Park Yoochun to endorse their products, and although I can’t give an exact number on how many cases, there are definitely a large number of advertisement requests asking for him.”

Following the current CF King Lee Seung Gi, who also has a warm, healthy image which earned him the the label of “Mother’s Friend’s Son,” Park Yoochun is currently receiving a lot of attention. Lee Seung Gi’s endorsements include home appliances, pharmaceutical products, apparel, foods and other advertisements, and is also a popular CF model among both consumers and advertisers, and now Park Yoochun is evaluated to have a similar potential.

[TRANS] 111121 JYJ’s Popularity Remains Strong Despite Restriction In Activities, Albums & DVDs Sold Out

[TRANS] 111121 JYJ’s Popularity Remains Strong Despite Restriction In Activities, Albums & DVDs Sold Out

Korean group JYJ have been unable to perform in official activities in Japan and other countries, but their popularity is just as before, and could probably be even growing stronger.

JYJ’s world tour concert in Ibaraki, Japan kicked off on 15 October, and attracted an audience of 80,000 people over 2 days. The upcoming special version of “In Heaven” to be released in November, which includes a DVD to thank the fans, has dominated the preorder charts of various large record stores. The Jamshil concert DVD that was released last week was sold out on Amazon immediately after it went on sale, showing their extraordinary popularity.

Despite not having any overseas activities, JYJ has still managed to keep in contact with their fans via social networking tools such as  twitter. In October, Kim Jaejoong even took the 2nd place after AKB48 in Japan’s influential fashion awards, proving his high level of popularity.

The fans have also shown great concern for JYJ’s individual activities. Park Yoochun’s “SungKyunKwan Scandal” DVD remained at the top of the DVD rental rankings for an entire month, “Miss Ripley” and Kim Jaejoong’s “Protect The Boss” have been broadcast in Japan and met with an enthusiastic response. The recently released “Protect the Boss” OST also took first place in total sales ranking of Gmarket Japan. Starring Kim Junsu, the musical “Kim Junsu’s Musical Concert” also became a hot topic when it was released.

JYJ’s management in charge of overseas markets analyzed, “I’m really surprised that JYJ managed to gain so much popularity despite not having any overseas activities. I think it’s due to the loyalty of the fans from Japan as well as the rest of the world, with the age range of the fans becoming wider,  and JYJ’s steadfast attitude towards their music as well as the charm from their individual activities are important reasons why fans are attracted (to them).

The special repackaged version of JYJ’s first Korean album “In Heaven” has exceeded 100,000 copies in preorder sales, and will be released this week.
