Kim Tae Hee has picked up a new endorsement deal with Toyota Korea. According to Toyota, Kim Tae Hee is the new face of the new Camry, and ads featuring the actress will be unveiled January 18. She has already completed filming, and two gorgeous stills have been released. Despite her busy schedule in Japan, she went back and forth to Korea and the US to shoot the advertisement.
Recently, Toyota USA recruited Lee Min Ho to model their new Camry advertisements in order to target the Asian middle class in America. Similarly, the company is in talks of using Kim Tae Hee’s Camry ad not just in Korea, but also throughout Asia, taking full advantage of the hallyu boom.
Meanwhile, Kim Tae Hee is busy filming her debut Japanese drama, “My 99 Days with a Star” with Nishijima Hidetoshi. She plans to resume her activities in Korea next year with either a drama or a movie.
