[NEWS] Nintendo Korea Choose Gong Hyo Jin And JYJ To Advertise ‘Mario Kart 7′
Nintendo Korea revealed on the 4th that they have chosen Actress Gong Hyo Jin and JYJ’s Kim Jaejoong, Park Yoochun and Kim Junsu to be the campaign models for the Nintendo 3DS software ‘Mario Kart 7′.
Though the quartet were seen only exchanging greetings at the beginning of the filming schedule because it was their first gathering, the atmosphere soon lightened up when they began playing ‘Mario Kart 7′ with the members of JYJ giving Gong Hyo Jin an in-depth explanation of the game.
The members of JYJ, who had enjoyed ‘Mario Kart DS’, the predecessor of ‘Mario Kart 7′, showed their competitive side as they fought for the top spot from the beginning.
When JYJ’s Kim Junsu kept coming in at first place, he confidently remarked, ‘I must be good at this game’ and it was later said that the quartet enjoyed themselves as they changed go-karts according to the course and found their racing styles through various new customized options.
Nintendo Korea made the decision to choose the four celebrities as they believed JYJ would be able to easily understand and showcase the special characteristics of ‘Mario Kart 7′ as the group is known to have enjoyed previous versions of the series while Gong Hyo Jin’s transformation into Mario in her ‘Super Mario 3D Land’ promotions would fit perfectly with the upcoming game.
Meanwhile, Nintendo’s latest game console Nintendo 3DS was released on the 28th of last month with various games such as ‘Super Mario 3D Land’ while ‘Mario Kart 7′ is expected to be released late-May.
