10 December CFs You Need to Watch
Every month brings a bevy of CFs (commercial films). We’ve narrowed it down to the top 10 that are the most watched, most discussed, and best reflect what’s going on in South Korea. Check out our list that includes your favorite stars and stay in the loop!
Girl’s Day’s Hyeri for Ghana Chocolate
Hyeri reenacted an old Ghana chocolate CF in the hit drama “Reply 1988.” She filmed an updated version as a part of the brand’s new commercial. Currently, “Reply 1988” and Hyeri are extremely popular. Hyeri can be seen in several CFs this month.
Lee Min Ho for Innisfree
Technically this is a making film. Lee Min Ho can be seen modeling for Innisfree’s Green Christmas campaign. The DIY Block Kit is highlighted in particular. Building block figurines are enjoyed by children and adults alike. Many are sold at vendors and stores everywhere in Korea.
EXO for Lotte Duty Free
Popular group EXO sings and dances in this music video for Lotte Duty Free. The boys look pretty adorable and the song is quite catchy as well. In fact, you can hear this song playing at Lotte Duty Free stores.
Kang Min Kyung for Couque D’asse
The cookie brand with a questionable name has found a new model in Kang Min Kyung. It appears as though the cookie is trying to re-brand itself. There are three different flavors: white torte, strawberry choux choux, and vienna coffee. Hope to see more of the singer-actress and Davichi as well!
Yoo Ah In for LG Uplus
2015 was an amazing year for Yoo Ah In. He met great success in his films “Veteran” and “Sado.” In addition, his drama “Six Flying Dragons” is also doing well. Heralded as one of the top actors of the year, it looks like he will be able to bask in the spotlight for a while. On another note, TWICE also filmed a commercial for LG Uplus.
Shin Min Ah for O HUI
The “Oh My Venus” star advertises O HUI’s new Age Recovery Baby Collagen Essence. Shin Min Ah looks as gorgeous as ever. Some viewers have noted that this ad is extremely similar to their previous commercial for the brand’s new cream that is in the same line. Would that affect your purchasing choice?
Eric Nam for Mabinogi
Here we see Eric Nam get ready for a date in a CF for a MMORPG (massively multiplayer online role-playing game) created by Nexon. At the end of this commercial, we see a glimpse of Oh My Girl’s YooA as his date. She has her own get-ready video as well.
Yoo Hae Jin for Hong Sam Yeon Tan
Yoo Hae Jin has been featured in more CFs recently after appearing in “Three Meals a Day.” This new beverage is a carbonated ginseng drink. The name Hong Sam Yeon Tan literally translates to ginseng coal briquette. “Yeon Tan” is an acronym for “yeon han tan san” which means lightly carbonated. Sparkling drinks are all the rage in Korea these days.
Im Siwan for Lotte Chilsung
After filming a more warm weather appropriate ad for the beverage, the singer-actor is back with a winter version. Im Siwan is the right model for their concept: pure and clean water. Have you tried this soda?
AOA for BC card
The seven-member group is the credit card’s latest models. They ask viewers what presents they would like this winter. AOA shows off a dance and notes their participation in the Santa Festival campaign. The members actually went to some prize winners and handed them their gifts personally.
