The rumors are no longer rumors. 25 year-old Philippine clothing giant, Bench, has officially announced through its Twitter account that Choi Siwon and Lee Donghae are going to be endorsers of the brand. It can be recalled that rumors have been circulating as early as last year that there were plans to have the Super Junior members as part of the Bench family. Well, looks like where there is smoke – there really is a fire (or hot guys for that matter).
The news was received well by the local K-Pop fandom. Over 2000 followers were added to the Twitter account of Bench within just 4 hours after the announcement. It became such a hot topic on the social media site with the hashtags
#SiHaeLovesBench and #DONGHAE and SIWON becoming top trending topics. Bench also posted a preview photo of the clothes for the shoot with Siwon and Donghae hinting at a smart preppy look for the Super Junior members.
Congratulations to Bench for this coup! This will definitely further solidify the brand’s international appeal with Siwon and Donghae’s strong following especially in the Chinese market where Bench has a growing presence. But I’m sure a lot of perverted ELFs out there are wondering – can Siwon and Donghae be part of the Bench Underwear Show? Ha ha ha! ~(>.<)~
