AceShowbiz - BTS (a.k.a. Bangtan Boys) and Park Bo Gum team up to provide refreshment for your eyes and soul in a new Coca-Cola ad. The seven-piece South Korean boyband and the actor party together in the newly-unveiled commercial video.
The 30-second clip opens with the BTS boys lazying around the pool, seemingly out of energy due to the hot weather. Park Bo Gum enters with two cans of Coca-Cola and promptly enlivens the atmosphere as they're throwing ice buckets, running and jumping into the water.
Park Bo Gum has been a model for Coca-Cola since 2017, while BTS joins the "Moonlight Drawn by Clouds" star for the beverage brand's summer campaign after being recently tapped as the global ambassador for the brand.
In other news, BTS has been named one of the 25 Most Influential People on the Internet by Time magazine. The "DNA" hitmaker joins international public figures like U.S. President Donald Trump, Rihanna, Kanye West and Kylie Jenner on the list.
This marks the second year in a row for the group to be included on the list, which is compiled by "looking at their global impact on social media and their overall ability to drive news." The K-Pop idols were chosen not only because of their phenomenal achievements with the latest album "Love Yourself: Tear", but also because of their powerful fandom ARMY, who "eagerly consume anything related to the group, from tweets to videos" and become "the real engine behind their success."
BTS was also nominated for Time magazine's 100 Most Influential People of 2018 list earlier this year, but didn't make the final cut. The group, however, won the 2018 Time 100 reader poll.
