Korea Buzz – Rain and Goo Hye Sun Selected as the Best Well-Matched CF Couple by Netizens

(Translated from 디시뉴스) Netizens have selected bakery chain Tours Les Jours models Rain-Goo Hye Sun as the best well-matched CF couple.

Community portal site “DCinside” (www.dcinside.com) did a survey from February 9 to February 16 on “Who is the best well-matched CF couple?” and Rain-Goo Hye Sun are placed on the first position.

Out of the total 6836 votes from netizens, Rain-Goo Hye Sun have obtained 2422 votes (35.4%). Both of them have started out as couple models for Tous Les Jours since last year August and they gave out a friendly yet sophisticated brand image. In particular, instead of the usual strong tough man image, Rain put on cute and mischievious expressions and this met with Goo Hye Sun who acted as a high school student in popular drama “Boys over Flowers”. Both of them have brought out a lovely image for a distinctive bakery brand. 

And also, cosmetics brand Etude House models Lee Min Ho-Park Shin Hye couple are ranked at second position with 1764 votes (25.8%). Last year April, “Goo Joon Pyo” Lee Min Ho has turned into into a sweet romantic guy and made proposal “My Girl” to Park Shin Hye in their first CF. Their refreshed brand image received good responses from young females.

At the third position with 513 votes (7.5%) are Maxim T.O.P models Won Bin-Shin Min Ah couple. Last year June, the kissing scene at their CF has created a topic. And also in the recent “Love Story”, both were seen with further affectionate expressions.

Other than this, following behind in the survey results are Jang Geun Suk-Kim So Eun (Maxim), Lee Seung Gi-Kim Sun Ah (Max), Lee Min Ho-Sandara Park (Cass), Kang Ji Hwan-Lee Na Young (Maxim) etc.
