Gong Hyo-jin and Ryu Seung-beom take on their first couple ad
by | December 3, 2010 | 30 Comments

I love when real-life couples act as couples in acting projects; that meta awareness adds just a little something extra to the cute. Such is the case with this couple, who are not only adorable together but talented to boot — Gong Hyo-jin (Pasta) and Ryu Seung-beom (No Mercy) — and who have teamed up to endorse a cell phone.

The product is a Motorola brand smart phone, Motorola Defy. I guess that is meant to sound cool, but to me it just sounds like an imperative, and I’m already wary of smart phones being, well, too smart. I don’t need you to add defiance to my phone’s list of capabilities. Just sayin’.

In any case, Ryu and Gong traveled to a Gangwon-do ski resort to shoot the above ad, which demonstrates the concept of being able to engage in active sports while carrying the smart phone on your person. The tagline reads, “It’s okay, because it’s Defy!” I suppose the other ads in the campaign have other concepts, though they’re unexplained. Unless you count cooking as an extreme sport. Which, based on your skill level, I suppose it could be.

This isn’t Gong and Ryu’s first time appearing onscreen together — he did make a cameo on Pasta earlier this year — but it is their first CF together. Love them.

  3. Christy

    They’re a great match–talented and adorable in every way!

    I think they did ZippyZiggy couple ads back in ’02. (yes yes I’m a fangirl lol)

    Oh, TOTALLY loved the meta when they played exes in the fantastic film Family Ties while being exes in real life (they still hadn’t gotten back together in 2006). Apparently the relationship has been very on-and-off, though to the delight of my li’l fangirly heart, it’s been consistently ON for the last couple of years.

    It’s great how they don’t shy away from acting together–they’ve done Wonderful Days, Conduct Zero, Dachimawa Lee, and the cameos in Family Ties and Pasta. Plus CFs? Yay!

    My absolute favorite K-celeb couple. <3

    I think the concept to all of them is that it is what couples do. Cooking, eating out, going on a vacation together… it’s just a cute couple and their phones.

    I feel like I’ve been living under a rock… I probably heard this before but forgot (stupid me). I love Ryu Seung-beom, and he looks totally ADORABLE with Gong Hyo-jin. Now I have to bump them up to my second favorite celeb couple. Happy couples make me happy, but CUTE, happy couples just make me happier!

      it’s an episode where a guy comes to the restaurant with his friends, and just order one item. which was not on the menu. and wreaked havoc in the kitchen, leading to the sheps having to go to the hospital. :D

    Humm…’Motorola Defy’ O_O!!
    Sometime the ad makes you think ‘what do you meannnnnnn?’ But then you would keep quiet and let it go thinking well, it’s the creative things, it doesn’t have to make sense, lol.
