[article] Rain to endorse China’s Mentholatum For Men cosmetics line.

Yes, without skipping a beat, Rain has a new endorser backing him.  Smart move, Mentholatum China—Rain’s face, skin, and image are amazing additions to any skincare company’s portfolio. There’s a lot to be said for classic beauty versus natural beauty (which Rain possesses in spades).

He’s JUST signed the contract, so the Mentholatum For Men website hasn’t been updated with any of Rain’s images as of yet. But if you’d like to explore the place anyway, check out some products and TV commercials, etc., you can go HERE, and HERE, and HERE, and HERE.

Congratulations, JiHoon!  (Hopefully you’ve given him a thank you, J.Tune. :/)

Rain Signs Contract With China’s Cosmetic Brand Mentholatum

J.Tune Entertainment has announced that on January 18, 2011, Rain (Jung Ji-Hoon) signed a $1.5 million USD (1,672,000,000 KRW) contract with China’s cosmetics brand Mentholatum. His contract stipulates that Rain will appear in advertisements for the brand’s Mentholatum for Man cleansers and moisturizers, which will be sold in China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan. What is impressive about this deal is that the contract fee Rain will be receiving will account for almost 17% of J.Tune’s recent total sales.

Rain, a mega-icon in the Korean music industry, is also a highly popular endorser of commercial products. In 2010 alone, Rain appeared in 21 television commercials for a variety of advertisers. Rain is currently working on a full-length album set to drop in April 2011 and is about to begin filming Red Scarf (Red Muffler), a remake of the Korean film by the same name.

  1. Rain is perfect for doing skin care products CF. His skin is yummie with that golden hue and flawless complextion. Heck, he can sell everything, from cars, clothes, cellular phones, underwear…ahem, O.o *plzzz, oh, plzzz Calvin Klane make a move!!!*


  2. Okay…..Ummm…cosmetics/skin care line that sounds like it should be in a medicine cabinet. But hey, whatever floats your boat. MAKE THAT PAPER Bi!!!!


  3. Congrats baby!!! That’s great coz with MS he is gonna miss lots of opportunities to make money. It will be awesome if Rain can get some endorsments of US products. I would love to see him in cable TV. Squeak!!


  4. I want some of that!!!…but it not anywhere near the U.S…lol 😉


  5. What happen to Earth’s Nature Republic. Will that not conflict his endorsements with Mentholatum? NR is in S. Korea, and M is in China, is that it? Well this is really good news, hopefully it will not result to a conflict of interest toward the end.


    • Hi, felisshi. 🙂

      Last March, I believe J.Tune released a statement that said that Rain’s Nature Republic contract had one more year. So it should come to an end around March 16, 2011, in about two months, and I suppose JYJ will remain at NR by themselves then.
