People often say that problems is part and parcel of the popularity package.
Thanks to the success of “Coffee Prince 1st Shop”, Yoon Eun Hye popularity has not just risen in Korea alone but overseas as well. But more often than not, pain comes along with success which is part of the package.
Despite not having any dramas nor movies at the moment, her numerous product endorsements are already keeping her busy, leaving her with little time to recharge herself. Since her drama filming ended, she appears to be on vacation, but in reality, she is busy fulfiling her product endorsement duties. Basically, she has to work non-stop for around 20 days in a given month. Just this month alone, she has to film CFs for clothing chain, Basic House and Joinus. In early April, she has another v=b CF filming to handle too.
Right now, her product endorsements include Zipel fridges, coffee drink Latte Ditto, artificial eyedrops I20, clothing brands Basic House & Joinus, etc.
Companies who already have other stars on their books to endorse soju, tyres, sweets, fast food restaurants have also extended invitations to her, but because it didn’t fit with her image or schedule, she had to reject them.
And because “Coffee Shop 1st Prince” is highly popular in countries like Japan, China, etc, they have invited her over to promote the drama. But because of her already packed schedule, it’s impossible for her to allocate time for her to visit their countries. The Japanese media apparently got tired of waiting and suggested heading over to Korea in a group to interview her. She is now adjusting her schedule and is set to meet them in early April.
Since becoming an actress, she has become a highly sought after star in the industry. Rumours abound that you had to fork out 5 million KRW per episode for Eun Hye in a drama series. But this is basically not true.
From a relatively newbie actress into a big star now, Yoon Eun Hye is going through a tiring growing up phase. But she’s handling it well thus far!
