Suzy has been crowned the CF queen of 2012.

Even though Girls’ Generation’s brand name as an entire group remains on top, Suzy burst her way up into #1 as a solo endorser. She has gained much love and was branded with the nickname of ‘Nation’s First Love’ from the movie ‘Introduction to Architecture’. Her rising popularity caused her CF wages to rise to 500 million KRW (approximately $460,000 USD) per shoot.

Suzy is no stranger to shooting endorsements as she shot 15 different CFs in 2012. She’s endorsed a wide variety of products including yogurt, vitamin drinks, cosmetics, school uniforms, perfumes, women’s clothing, and cameras. Her biggest rivals to the CF Queen title are the various members from Girls’ Generation. YoonA and Jessica in particular were tied for 2nd by participating in 13 different CFs. 3rd place went to Tiffany with 12 CFs, and 4th was a tie between Sooyoung and Seohyun with 11 CFs. However, many of these CFs includes all the members of Girls’ Generation, meaning Suzy beat all the girls by a wide margin in terms of having solo CFs.

However, there was no one who could beat Girls’ Generation as an entire group. Combined, the girls are models to a total of 21 different brands including chicken, perfume, jewelry, handbags, TVs, beds, and department stores. If you include the entire group, 2nd place goes to miss A with a total of 16 different CFs – however, there are no CFs where miss A shot as an entire group and 15 of those were Suzy’s sole CF’s. SISTAR was third with 14 CFs in total endorsing cosmetics, cars, and even soju. 4th place went to KARA with 10 CFs, and 5th place went to 2NE1 with 9 CFs.


Suzy – 15 CFs: Canon camera, Dominos pizza, Vita500, Smart school uniform, Sumi chips, Bean Pole outdoor, TN, Sudden Attack, Denmark Drinking Yogurt, Carribean Bay, Loen, Nintendo Super Mario Brothers, Lolita Tempika, Post office insurance, Reebok

It looks like miss A’s Suzy is truly a beautiful angel both on the inside and out! Despite her busy schedule on February 5 she visited the Korean “Make a Wish Foundation.” She visited the foundation in order to meet children with terminal diseases that wanted to see her in person.

She met with an 11 year old girl suffering from “Chronic Large Cell Lymphoma” and a 15 year old boy suffering from brain tumor. The two children had separately made a wish in June and August that they wanted to meet Suzy.

Suzy met with the children and answered the questions that they had. She was asked, “What is the moment that you feel like your life has been most worthwhile after becoming a singer?” Suzy replied, “It’s moments like these, when I can help strengthen somebody else.”

The children received hats and hair accessories from Suzy. Suzy also received gifts from the children. They also shared a hand print together. For about an hour Suzy spent quality time with the children.

At the end Suzy stated, “I hope that you become healthier after striving through this difficult hospital life.” Then Suzy gave the children a guitar and sneakers as a gift.

OP NOTE: i still can't believe that some people used this to hate on suzy.

Psychologists analyzed drawings by miss A‘s Suzy, and apparently, her artwork says that she would like to break away from the innocent image people have of her.

An expert starred on Y-STAR‘s ‘GoongGeumTa‘ (‘Curious‘) to analyze a couple of drawings Suzy revealed on air. In one drawing, she shaded in the hair, eyes, and neck, and the expert commented, “There is pressure, anxiety, and nervousness she feels due to her environment.” Another psychologist added, “I can also see that she feels burdened by her clean, neat image, and she wants to break free from her innocent image.”

On the caricature she drew of former ‘Strong Heart‘ hosts Shin Dong Yup and Lee Dong Wook, the expert said, “It looks like she yearns for the ‘bad boy’ style,” also adding that a guy like actor Choi Min Soo would be her ideal type.

OP NOTE: or they could have saved their time and actually listened to her when she gives interviews? because she actually said all those things before.

Netizens commented, “Suzy’s pretty”, “Her face and heart are both beautiful”, “You really can’t dislike her”, “Her fans were probably really touched”, and more.

miss A’s Suzy showed her appreciation for her fans with a new photo.

On February 3, she tweeted, “Thank you to all the fans who came!” and attached a photo of herself. In the photo, she posed by a rather large bouquet of flowers, humoring her fans with an adorable expression as she rested her head on a pink balloon.

The singer-actress was recently in Tokyo for a promotion event for her KBS drama “Big,” which stars Lee Min Jung and Gong Yoo.

In “Big,” Suzy plays Jang Mari, a reckless girl who’s head over heels in love with Kang Kyung Joon, played by Cross Gene’s Shin Won Ho. She travels to Korea from the States to take Kyung Joon, her fiance, home. Lee Min Jung takes on the role of Gil Daran, a spunky and clumsy high school teacher who’s engaged to Gong Yoo’s Seo Yoon Jae, a doctor who swaps bodies with Gil Daran’s student Kang Kyung Joon after a fateful accident.

Later this month, Suzy will also attend another promotional event for “Big” in Kobe, Japan.

I think the SNSD girls though are more expensive than Suzy. But idk. Either way, good for her.

She looks really weird in her graduation photo, Sulli looks qt though.
xcherryblossomx 8th-Feb-2013 12:38 am (UTC)
I think you get the 9 girls of SNSD for the price of 1 person. SME goes after volume of CFs.

For example Vita 500: Before SNSD they had a CF deal with Uee and now with Suzy. I doubt that their marketing budget miraculously increased for the year they had SNSD. The same amount of money they paid Uee and now they are paying Suzy was probably divided by 9 the year SNSD modeled for them.

J-estina also usually only has 1 model.

LG and Samsung have so many people promoting different products I doubt they pay that much.
xcherryblossomx Regarding CF Deals8th-Feb-2013 12:32 am (UTC)
At the end its not about how many cfs they have but which one makes the more $$$.

If I remember correctly SM artists are known to be cheaper in comparison to other idols. Also I have read that actors get better paid for CFs.
erbalurbal Re: Regarding CF Deals8th-Feb-2013 12:37 am (UTC)
I read somewhere that snsd are only second to big bang for cf and appearance fees.
kris_kt 8th-Feb-2013 12:58 am (UTC)
She was really everywhere in korea~ everywhere i turned she was in an ad so i was kinda tired of her face lol but congrats to her.

Suzy is really ridiculously popular in Korea.
goldynchickie 8th-Feb-2013 01:45 am (UTC)
Awww, Suzy and Sulli look so cute!

Also, now I know why Onew tweeted Graduation last night, lol.
anconeous 8th-Feb-2013 01:56 am (UTC)
SMTown's maknaes all graduated yesterday. It's kinda strange that there are no more high schoolers left there.
bestsama 8th-Feb-2013 02:13 am (UTC)
sooyoung also did CFs for G-Star Raw Japan

and are they forgetting snsd's cfs for Line, my People, and dior?
xcherryblossomx 8th-Feb-2013 02:59 am (UTC)
In one part of the article they say they have a total of 21 as a group and then they list less than those.

And in the individual list they have a couple of group deals like J.stina, Lotte Department Store, LG, etc.

Journalistic failure.
sandra_hall 8th-Feb-2013 02:33 am (UTC)
I was pretty suprised by the order of snsd's ranking. w/e, YAY SOOYOUNG!

I can't believe the 94-line is all grown up, it feels like only yesterday they were only like, 6 people and 15 y/o /sobs

omg tho. That uniform is so fucking ugly. I'm sorry for all my whining about mine. Never again will I scoff at the expression it could be worse.

OP NOTE: or they could have saved their time and actually listened to her when she gives interviews? because she actually said all those things before. Ikr? good one analysts, nothing gets past you.
scarletapples 8th-Feb-2013 03:05 am (UTC)
Make dat money, Suzy! :)

But man, every time I see those uniforms I cringe. Good thing they don't have to wear that ugly yellow thing anymore ._.
tsuyoi_hikari 8th-Feb-2013 03:51 am (UTC)
Wait, she attends school? With her busy schedule, she managed to graduate? Can someone tell me how can she find the time to go to school?
lysblack 8th-Feb-2013 04:06 am (UTC)
every free moment she had she was at school, while she didn't go as much other students jype always made sure she would go to school, school always was one of the main reasons why she never stayed more than the necessary when the group traveled overseas for schedules, she went, she worked, she returned. there’s actually a lot of pictures of her arriving in sets and etc with her school uniform.
cagallisakura 8th-Feb-2013 04:34 am (UTC)
"2nd place goes to miss A with a total of 16 different CFs – however, there are no CFs where miss A shot as an entire group and 15 of those were Suzy’s sole CF’s"

oh ouch :/ whose cf is that lonely one?
lysblack 8th-Feb-2013 06:01 am (UTC)
i believe it is roem.

the sad part is, if miss as old endorsements had been renewed (most of them ended in the half of 2012) i think they would have surpassed soshi as a group too, or at least tied.

but something also makes me confused, they didn't seem to count fei's solo cf.
eishastan 8th-Feb-2013 07:08 am (UTC)
Congrats Suzy and SNSD! but i feel really bad for the rest of miss a they are d-listed while Suzy gets all that money.
lysblack 8th-Feb-2013 07:23 am (UTC)
suzy doesn't get all the money tho, and they aren't d-listed.
