On the 28th, Coca Cola announced that BIGBANG will continue to endorse Sunny10 Sparklingade.
Last year, Sunny10 had G-Dragon and T.O.P as their main advertisement models and they did a re-make of Sunny10’s CF song, which was a big hit.
This year, with BIGBANG’s comeback, all the members of the group will be working as Sunny10’s Sparklingade models.
Coca Cola said, “Idol group BIGBANG’s trendy and stylish character matches Sunny10’s Sparklingade’s image. Because of this, we decided to go with BIGBANG for Sunny10’s new CF. BIGBANG making a comeback to the public after a long a break and Sunny10’s Sparklingade are both fresh and we believe that Sparklingade’s 10% fruit juice will grab younger consumers’ attention and love.”
Korean movie and K-Pop stars united together for a new effort against piracy being led by Gaon Chart called the ‘2012 Good Downloader Campaign‘.
Actors Ahn Sung Gi, Park Joong Hoon, Lee Min Jung, Jang Hyuk and music stars Yoon Do Hyun (YB), Kim Yuna (Jaurim), Yunho (TVXQ), Nickhun (2PM), Sohee (Wonder Girls), as well as Sulli (f(x)) banded together for the campaign during a shoot yesterday, sending the message that pirating movies and music is illegal and wrong.
A representative from the ’2012 Good Downloader Campaign’ commented that they wanted to get the message across that pirating movies and music is definitely not okay, but to also make people think about pirating in a more broad sense including things like television programs, characters, and sportswear.
Yoon Do Hyun stated, “I got the call from Ahn Sung Gi and heard about the campaign so I happily participated. In terms of music, legal ways of getting it are increasing, but so are illegal ways to get it like smartphones…”
In the Korean entertainment biz, one of the best indicators of your popularity depends on the number of endorsement deals you can score. According to a recent survey, SNSD and Lee Seung Gi were the CF Queens and King for the year 2011!

On the other hand, Lee Seung Gi took on commercials for pizza, banking and finance, refrigerator brands and more.
Next on the list were top stars like Won Bin (with 24 commercials), Hyun Bin (with 19), and IU (with 18).
