BTS vocalist Jin, whose legal name is Kim Seok-jin, is now the face of the instant noodle brand Jin Ramen.
South Korean food manufacturing company Ottogi released a commercial featuring Jin on Friday.
Ottogi shared a teaser video on its official Instagram with the caption, “Do you like Jin Ramen? Ramen that is always true to taste. Friday, November 11, coming soon.”
In the commercial, “The Astronaut” singer showcases the brand’s spicy red packaged ramen and its milder blue packaged ramen.
With the new commercial, the oldest member of BTS has finally fulfilled his dream of becoming a model for the popular noodle brand that shares his name.
In October, Jin hinted at wanting to endorse Jin Ramen in a Weverse post, saying, “One of my wishes after debuting was to film a CF for ‘Jin ramyun’..”
Ottogi said it aims to “create synergy” with Jin on future projects.
“With Jin who has established a significant presence in the world as a global artist and a member of BTS, we want to effectively relay our brand’s value ahead of our 35th anniversary next year,” Ottogi said, according to Korea JoongAng Daily. “We also hope that having Jin as our new model adds momentum to our efforts in both domestic and oversea markets.”
