According to a statement released by the company on Tuesday, Jeong, who recently starred in the television drama "Padam Padam... The Sound of His and Her Heartbeats", will represent the brand for one year.

The "hallyu" (K-wave) star made his debut in the movie "The Fox with Nine Tails" in 1994 and rose to stardom with director Kim Seong-soo's film "Beat" in 1997. He has since appeared in a number of box office hits such as "A Moment to Remember" in 2004 and "The Good, the Bad, the Weird" in 2008.
