Posts Tagged ‘Pond’s Face My Love’
About three weeks ago, Pond’s came out with new campaign through an Asian drama-inspired web series. I say Asian drama (instead of Koreanovela) because though it has many Korean elements like the names, the Kpop references and the hangul graphics, and obviously played with the Hallyu phenomenon in the country, the hyperrealism of it is definitely Japanese-inspired (sound effects, slapstick comedy, texture) while the actors who played Kim and Lee have Chinese blood. LOL.
Pond’s Face My Love. What is
This “webenovela” as Pond’s dubbed it instantly became a hit with the first episode! I mean, why not? Even if you’re not into Hallyu (Korean wave), the story still played on the “not-so-pretty girl liking the hottest boy in school” fantasy, which, we have to admit, is something most teens can relate with. Add to that the fact that this shit was really well-produced. Look at the lighting and the production design and the quality of the video!!! %#($&)&@^$T_!*( I wish I could do something that nice for an online show, too! Great job you gaaaaiz!
As one YouTube commenter said (and I can’t help but quote her), PBB Teens?! Hahaha!
