Idol, Fashionista, Celebrity...Fried Chicken Ambassador?
Don’t be chicken to advertise chicken!
Fried chicken is just about the most staple fast food in Korea. Just like McDonald’s in the US, you can’t walk a couple blocks without seeing a chicken restaurant or two on the streets of Seoul. Its duality as a delicious, crispy meal for kids, and the perfect partner to beer for adults makes it loved by all, and a serious business opportunity when it comes to advertising.
If an actor, idol, comedian, or any other type of K-Celeb becomes a Fried Chicken Ambassador, you know they’ve made it big! Only the top stars get to advertise for pleasantly fried poultry.
This isn’t a new concept, either. K-Celebs who were the hottest during their eras have been showcasing fried chicken since the beginning of the Korean media boom. Here’s a look at some of the best, older fried chicken commercials. Shinhwa
