The showbiz industry is a rough tide. Everything's moving quickly, the trend, popularity… There are new faces surfacing each and every day. Some are one-hit wonders where they get on a quick rise and suddenly disappear from the screens, nowhere to be seen and some are loved for an extensive period of time, often achieving a nickname starting with "National". To be on that level of popularity, it is often expected that they not only have charms and skills but also a great personality topped with least scandal as possible if not, none. The audience is very sensitive and not so forgiving when it comes to scandals. When I speak of the audience, I'm generally speaking but I sense that the judgement on celebrities is even harsher in South Korea.
Like I mentioned, there are many new faces, young and handsome guys everywhere in the showbiz industry, but when it comes to choosing a model, many name brands prefers older, mid-age men to represent their brand. You know the ones who are loved by everyone and have the nickname of "National" somethings. These men are classy, gives off a trust-worthy vibe, and loved by the nation. These men have survived the rough tide of the entertainment world and continue to stand strong. Since they have established that standing, they receive numerous love calls from many brands, wanting them to be the model of their products.
The below six are the top 6 mid-age male (Ahjussi) celebrities of South Korea with the highest rate of being a brand model. Let's see who these men that I speak of are.
I'm sure you are already familiar with their faces and names, for they are indeed, the most loved Ahjussi celebrities of South Korea and can be seen in many screens. We hope that their popularity will last forever and their goodness will influence many young celebrities growing in the entertainment business.
