[CF] “CF Queen” Lee Hyori promotes ricecookers!

6 Sep

“CF Queen” Lee Hyori is promoting even ricecookers in a sexy way!

Lee Hyori was selected as the model of a new CF for Cuchen, a premium kitchen electronics brand.

According to Cuchen, in the premium ricecooker “Definite Fine Quality” CF  to be aired on the 6th, Lee Hyori has solidified the fine image of the premium rice cooker with her enthusiastic yet sexy appeal.

There was a buzz going around at the Chung-Dam Dong Studio, where the CF was filmed, that Lee Hyori promoted the ricecooker smoothly with the phrase, “Let’s eat some rice!” in a sexy yet cute way.

A representative of Cuchen praised Lee Hyori, “As a CF model who raised awareness for the various brands she has promoted- red pepper pastes and electronics – her image seems to fit the “Definite Fine Quality” ricecooker best.” He went on to mention the high expectations they have for the CF: “In the upcoming CF, Lee Hyori’s sexiness from her singing career and her enthusiastic, friendly image that is reflected in her programs are all showcased, so we are anticipating this CF to be a very highly effective one.”

The commercial showing Lee Hyori’s killer smile and the witty CF concept will be aired on the 6th.

I am hoping that the rice made with this rice cooker will be just as hot and delicious as Hyori.

[News/Info] SMTOWN’s chartered plane to LA totaled $851,000 USD

4 Sep

A couple of days ago, the SM family boarded their plane at Incheon Airport for their next stop of SMTOWN Live ‘10 World Tour in Los Angeles, which will be taking place on September 4th.

For the very first time, SM Entertainment raked up a whopping 1 billion won for the expenses of their own chartered plane, a Boeing 747-400, which calculates to $851,000 USD. A total of 250 people, including staff, bodyguards, press reporters and 40 of SM artists, were all on board to LA.

The first artist to step foot on the chartered plane was Super Junior’s leader, Lee Teuk. Through the in-flight mic, Lee Teuk said, “When you talk loudly in public places, people glare at you and say, “Do you guys think you own this place?” Why yes, we really do own this!”, which made everyone laugh.

Kim Min Jong and Kangta had a fun time of their own, acting as stewards as they went around the whole plane, serving wine and swiping cards, and when they finished, Kangta made a toast to ‘South Korea to the world‘.

The first floor business section of the chartered plane consisted of Kangta, BoA, Kim Min Jong, DBSK’s Uknow Yunho and Max Changmin, SNSD and f(x). Super Junior and SHINee took over the business section of the second floor. Given the nickname ‘Charlie’s Angels‘, SNSD’s Yuri and actress Lee Yeon Hee sat together to gossip.

Inside the chartered plane, BoA commented, “I always travel to America, but since this time I’m going with other artists, it feels really good”, while Yunho adding, “It feels like we’re going on a reunion trip.”
