Capitalising on the popularity of You Who Came From The Stars actors Kim Soo Hyun and Jun Ji Hyun, Samsung Mobile in China has appointed the onscreen couple as brand ambassadors. The two Korean celebrities will rake in NT$60 million (approximately S$2.5 million) worth of endorsement fees in total.

According to media reports, Soo Hyun and Ji Hyun will appear on Samsung China’s print and TV advertisements, rivalling competitor LG China’s ambassador Lee Min Ho. Last month, The Heirs star landed the endorsement deal for a lucrative NT$35 million (S$1.45 million).

Following the success of You Who Came From The Stars, Soo Hyun’s net worth has reportedly skyrocketed from NT$14 million (S$580,000) to NT$22 million (S$910,000). Embarking on his Asian fan meeting tour, the charismatic actor will be greeting his fans in Taiwan tomorrow (Mar 22).

Soo Hyun will also attend a press conference hosted by veteran host Mickey Huang on the same day. “Many people have volunteered to be my assistant, just to get close to Kim Soo Hyun. He has a wide range of fans, from 18-year-olds to 48-year-olds,” said the Taiwanese artiste.
