In Korea, it's apparent that you have joined the Korea's top female celebrity list by looking at which advertisement you are chosen to represent. If you got the famous refrigerator brand, makeup brand, and shampoo brand, you are pretty much at the top. Now, there's an advertisement that beats all three of those. It's the Soju advertisement!
You know those clear liquid that comes in green glass bottles? The one your favorite K-drama heroin gets so drunk on after sipping couple of those shot glasses? YES, that's South Korea's most loved drink of all time, Soju. Since Soju is such a beloved substance in South Korea, it's natural that only the top of the top female celebrities gets chosen to be a model for all the Soju brands.
The 3 top soju brands includes "Real Dew (Cham-isul)", "Like First Time (Cheo-um-cheo-rum)", and "Good Day (Jo-eun-Day)". Over the course of time, each brand took only the best as their model at the time!
