Info About New Marley Coffee CF

According to Hosuk Lee, president of Marley Coffee Korea, the new CF that we’ve all been waiting for will air around April 15th for approximately 45 days. There will be a total of 2 versions. In the beginning of May, 3 different types of cup coffee will also be introduced. This is the first time I’ve heard of the term “cup coffee” although I am of Korean descent and live in South Korea. Just to clarify things, I searched online using the Korean term and found images like this: (These are widely found in convenience stores and supermarkets in the refrigerated dairy aisle)

Marley Coffee ‘Making Of’ CF Preview

I was very lucky to have the manager of Marley Coffee in Itaewon show me this preview on his cellphone when I was at the store earlier this week. He heard I was a Lee Seung Gi fan and pulled out his cellphone to treat me to an unexpected surprise. The food and coffee at the store were both excellent. According to him, the CF will be released in January or February of 2015. Looking forward to the finished product! 😛

DCLSG is full of coffee related Seung Gi GIFS today and I couldn’t let the one I tweeted today go without posting it here. I’m also uploading the video where it was taken from, Invite, from his 5.5 Mini Album which I’m currently translating. Both are perfect timing for his new CF and the fall weather.  To see the English subtitles, click on the CC button.

Marley Coffee in Itaewon~ Photos

Thanks to a dclsg member who posted these earlier this afternoon. It is located in Itaewon, which is in Yongsan-gu, Seoul.  Looking forward to visiting and buying some coffee soon.^^ Many foreign restaurants are located there because the town caters to foreigners. English is readily spoken in most shops. The US Army base is one subway stop away, so it is very common to see military personnel in Itaewon.

Congratulations! Seung Gi to Be Model for Marley Coffee ^^

I’m so happy for Seung Gi right now! His wish to be a coffee CF model has finally come true. I don’t have much time to post right now, so I’m uploading a translation from the most recent Korean article by TopStarNews.

Marley Coffee is a brand symbolizing peace and antiwar by Jamaican reggae singer Bob Marley.  It uses Blue Mountain coffee beans from a farm directly operated by his descendants.  This past September, the first branch opened in Itaewon and next January, RTD (Ready To Drink) products will also be launched.  Marley C&V International has an exclusive license for Marley Coffee and related products for Korea as well as distribution rights for the Asia region.
The representative of Marley C&V’s Lee Ho Seok  said, “The smooth and mellow image that singer and actor Lee Seung Gi has fits well with the message of peace that Marley Coffee wants to relay. We look forward to him further enhancing the message of  ‘One Love’ .

Meanwhile, Lee Seung Gi was the #1 CF Model in 2013. He is currently filming the lead role in ‘Today’s Love’ by Park Jin Pyo who also directed ‘You Are My Sunshine’ and ‘Closer to Heaven’, among others. ‘Today’s Love’ with leads Lee Seung Gi and Moon Chae Won plans to premiere next year.
