Yes, I want my Yoo Seung Ho and eat my cake, too. Since being released from military service, Yoo Seung Ho has dived back into his entertainment career full force, including resuming his sought after CF activities. He filmed a CF last month for Korean conglomerate CF‘s dessert brand Petitzel on a new individual-sized cake called the Sweet Roll. It’s a simple fresh milk and cream swiss cake roll, being sold in mass market locations but boasting a gourmet bakery quality.
Since the premiere of the CF with the launch of the product, in a short month Petitzel has sold over 400,000 units and with 12 billion won gross sales. Not bad for a cake made out of cream, sugar, and flour. The media is calling it the Yoo Seung Ho effect, which has some basis since he really made that sucker look tasty when he was nom-nom-noming on it in the CF (below). Something so sweet and rich probably appeals more to the female sweet tooth so having Yoo Seung Ho as the face of the product is a masterstroke of good advertising. All the noonas can imagine feeding cake to him LOL.
