Jungkook mentions Downy fabric softener - product trends on naver and sells out in South Korea



On January 20, Jungkook paid a visit to the official fan cafe of BTS and chatted with his fans. While on the topic of laundry, fans asked the idol what products he uses to do laundry, and Jungkook shared the brand of fabric softener that he currently uses.

Immediately afterwards, ARMYs showed their desire to use the same fabric softener as the BTS member. It soon led to a shortage of the product, and the product’s name topped Naver’s realtime search rankings.

In response, Jungkook took to Twitter and said, “ARMYs… I’m almost out of my fabric softener and have to buy a new one… [but] it’s all sold out.” The member also included a hashtag that said, “ARMY is impressive.”

His power! Downy’s marketing department must be having a field day.

Also, OT, but in case anyone still doubts Matthew McConaughey attended their Dallas live:

As we speak, Kookie is waiting by the phone to give Downy his bank details for his good work. Can we get a cf with Jungkook floating on a cloud of feathers or something? It would be cringe, but it would give me life.

jungkook played himself cause now he's gonna have a hell of a time trying to get it lol
mjmjchick 21st-Jan-2019 11:08 pm (UTC)
LOL, he already (jokingly) posted on the BTS twitter that he needed more softener and now it’s all sold out

i'm working at one of the biggest downy competitor company, and this evening the brand manager was panicking with this news as a lot of armies in my country start researching the same variant of downy that jungkook used.
she's afraid this will be declining the brand market share lol

she asking the news link and also some idea on how to get the same promotion from korean fans to her brand as well.

wow the power of jungkook

Wow indeed!

Damn, Downy lucked out, lmao. Most companies gotta pay a lot of money for that kind of marketing. xD

Just in general, I never understood the thing with people buying something just because their fave uses/likes it? If it was a cf deal maybe I sorta see it but random things celebs mention on the go? Am I just getting old for not getting it? Lol kinda fascinating tho.
vintage_boom 21st-Jan-2019 05:00 pm (UTC)
they want to ~feel closer to their fave. in this age I assume anybody with a kind of social following mentioning a brand at random is being paid even when it's not an official CF

That's pathetic.....

BTS generally only have to mention a song/product/artist/book to get it selling nowadays, but in this case Jungkook is notorious for being the fussy laundry fairy of the group, so there's some stock in trying out a certain laundry product that he likes.

Wow, that's crazy...
