Actress Park Min-young will be the new face for a local cosmetics brand, announced her agency King Kong Entertainment on Wednesday.
Park will be a model for Korean cosmetics brand THEFACESHOP, representing the company for a year both at home and abroad, together with male models Won Bin and Kim Hyun-joong who are both major heartthrobs in the country.
The 24-year old actress recently rose to stardom through KBS drama “SungKyunKwan Scandal,” also starring JYJ member Yuchun and actors Song Joong-ki and Yoo A-in, in which she played a girl disguised as a boy.
THEFACESHOP is currently the No. 1 Korean-made cosmetics brand which has been exported to 18 countries across the world covering not only neighboring Asian nations of Japan and Taiwan but also countries such as Canada, United States and Dubai.
“With Park joining us we expect to add a fresh, feminine image to our products and resolve the shortage of female models,” an official from THEFACESHOP was quoted as saying in the statement.
A TV commercial featuring Park with the company’s upcoming winter products will go on air starting January.
Park who debuted through an SK Telecom June Commercial in 2005, has also appeared in popular sitcom “High Kick (2006),” followed by dramas “I Am Sam (2007)” and “Princes Ja Myung Go (2009)” among others.
She has just begun shooting her first film “Goyang-yi (translated into” Cat “),” a horror flick set to premiere in 2011, about a young animal beautician who adopts a mysterious cat whose owners have all been met with untimely death.
