Uee, a member of the girl group After School, has been picked as a CF model for Samsung Electronics' handset "Anycall."
Just four months have passed since her debut as a singer.
Uee, 21, whose real name is Kim Yoo-jin, appeared in two of the three recently filmed Anycall omnibus commercials, along with Lee Min-ho and Kim Hyun-joong, heroes of TV series "Boys Over Flowers." In the commercials, she showed off her lively, cute image while acting as the lover of the two celebrities.
So far, only top stars such as Lee Hyori, Eric, BoA and Lee Joon-ki have starred in Anycall commercials.
An official at Pledis Entertainment, Uee's agency, was quoted as saying that the agency has been flooded with phone calls from cosmetics and clothing companies seeking Uee to appear in their commercials.
Apart from performing as a member of After School, Uee has drawn popularity by starring in MBC TV's variety show "We Got Married" alongside Park Jae-jung.
I won't ever understand Korea's obsession with her or Sohee.
