Could Park Seo Joon be the next face of local clothing brand Bench?
Early this Friday, April 5, Ben Chan, founder of the famous label, took to Instagram to announce that they will be introducing their newest “Global BENCHsetter” from Korea soon. “Just another #GlobalBENCHsetter fighting for his way to your feeds,” he wrote. “No stopping the K-Wave here. Got guesses on who this mystery #GlobalBENCHsetter is?”
But eagle-eyed fans were quick to pick up the hints, and all clues lead to the 30-year-old South Korean actor – or so it appears from this short teaser trailer from Bench:
Prior to this, there have been reports that Ben followed Park on Instagram sometime in January (as first pointed out by fan page Park Seo Joon Philippines on Facebook), immediately giving rise to speculations that the actor, who is best known for his roles in What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim? and She Was Pretty, might be coming to Manila soon.
Check out some of the fans’ reactions from Twitter:
Nevertheless, Bench has yet to reveal the identity of their next ambassador as of this writing.
