Next, Korean celebs earning money (or not) from product promotion

Rain, who has been rather invisible of late, pops up in a Nikon commercial

Jeon Ji-hyun, now known as Gianna Jun in the West as a result of her appearance in The Last Vampire, launches the Gianna jeans brand

Next, Ivy, who according to the Chosun is being sued by a cosmetics company which Ivy “promotes”.

The company claims Ivy’s lies and scandal-plagued private life have tarnished the company’s brand image, as cosmetics are greatly dependent on the image of their spokesmodels.


Finally, wedding wishes to Jumong star Song Il-gook, who tied the knot last weekend (15 March)
