Before Kim Bum in Boys Before Flowers, there was Kim Kibum. A KTF commercial of a fresh-faced 16 year-old Kim So Eun with Super Junior member, Kim Kibum which was released in 2005 has been attracting attention recently once more thanks to the growing popularity and interest in Kim So Eun.
In the CF, Kim So Eun appears at a bus stop with Kim Kibum a few meters away. She pretends to call her friend on the phone and shouts out her own number, hoping that Kibum will take notice. As So Eun was going to shout out her number for the 2nd time, a real text message comes in, and her ruse is broken. So Eun appears embarassed after that but the CF ends with So Eun having a big smile on her face after Kibum asks if she is getting on the bus too.
4 years down the road, Kim So Eun has certainly grown into a beautiful girl.
Here’s another piece of good news for fans of both Kim Bum and Kim So Eun. It was revealed on the 23rd that they are actually best friends and classmates at Chung-Ang University, majoring in film studies. What a brilliant coincidence.
