[series] Rain’s World of Endorsements: A “Lotte” Rain (Lotte Duty Free Shops)

Rain Lotte Duty Free

I have to warn you right now – if you are not already in full blown crush mode over Rain, this one will promptly put you there whether you like it or not!!  You’ve been warned so proceed at your own risk!

If you visit Seoul, you will no doubt be introduced to the wonderful world of Lotte.  The Lotte Company is a conglomerate of businesses that include everything from food products to housing, to finance and even amusement parks.  Big company. BIG! So naturally it can go all out and get the best of the best of the best to promote its goods and services.  And we all know who the best is.  Rain.

Lotte Duty Free Shops are department stores strewn throughout Seoul.  In my experience with them while I was in Seoul, it was like shopping at the airport – I had to show my passport and I even had to pay in US dollars and the best part about duty-free: no tax!  I hit the Lotte Duty Free Shop up for some beauty care products (always a good find in Seoul).  Lotte is also responsible for Star Avenue where you can visit a little K-entertainment walk of fame and even wish upon your favorite K-star by hanging a star on the wall of wishes.  Pretty sweet idea actually.  And yes, you can wish upon Rain!



In this 2009 ad release, featuring the song So I’m Loving You, Rain is joined by Song Seung Hun, Park Young Ha, Ji Sung, Kang Ji Hwan and Big Bang as they sing their way into inviting you to shop at Lotte Duty Free.

Before I share the finished product, you MUST see this making of video that is Rain-specific.  I have to tell you, I was squeeing and swooning throughout this entire video clip.  He is going to sweep you off your feet and make you feel all fangirl swishy inside I promise!  His charm and charisma explode off the screen.  I don’t think he could contain it even if he tried.  In watching this, you can tell that Rain always puts forth 100% focused effort in absolutely everything he does.  And Rain…do you always have to do it with this much adorableness?!! Yeah, I guess you do.

Here is the finished product.  Too cute.  So sweet.

I must close this post with a couple more promotional stills, because I can!! 🙂
