[2009.09.11] KARA - the newest stars in the CF world

36 posts in this topic

d00556654a6f791908ce0.jpg

Group KARA has become the newest faces of 4 different industries as they have been selected as models and advertisers for food, clothing, shoes and chicken. Not only this, but they have several advertising contracts with electronic products and main stream food products. 2 - 3 commercials are already filmed, while the others are in the process of being filmed or edited. Because of this sudden rise in the number of commercials that the members have done, they are rapidly being considered as the blue chip in the commercial industry.

Within just one month from their comeback with their second full-length album - Revolution, KARA has already made 1 Billion Won worth from their advertisements. If their cosmetics contracts are to be included, together with their commercials lined up, their are to get around 2 Billion Won worth from their ad contracts.

KARA's management company DSP said "There are many love calls from different companies for KARA to endorse their products. Recently, we have signed with 4 different companies. Because of the many offers that we get, we are just trying to get those which match the image of KARA well."

KARA has been performing their song <Wanna> which has already reached number one. They have succeeded in getting 3 hits in a row, together with <Pretty Girl> and <Honey>. They had been pushed aside by Wonder Girls and Girls Generation during their debut, but KARA proved to be a success story, leaving the impression that they are the last among girl groups. With number 1 songs to their name, and the various products they endorse, they are now being considered as blue chips.

An insider says "The charms of KARA is different from other girl groups. They are not intimidating. Their advantage is that they feel very sincere and honest. People see how hard they work. People appreciate that they went through sufferings to achieve something significant. And their success with their albums and songs just adds to this advantage, which for advertisers, is a great perspective.

Okay, so they have a contract to do a set of CF's for a total of $1.63M. Do we know what types of CF's they've been contracted to do? At the moment they're doing a CF for chicken and now for shoes, anything else down the road for them?

They get half and the company gets half right? That's 1.6 million US dollars divided by 2 = $800,000 divided by 5 = $160,000 each. I don't know how much they get taxed but that's a lot of money.

I'm glad they're getting recognition. They do have that friendly girls next door feel.
