South Korean superstar Kim Soo-hyun has returned to the roster of brand ambassadors of Filipino clothing brand Bench.

“Worry no more because starting today, you’ll get to see much more of him! Kim Soo Hyun’s long-awaited comeback has finally arrived!” Bench said in its social media posts on Saturday.

Kim Soo-hyun, reportedly Korea’s highest-paid actor, recently starred in the hit Netflix K-drama “Queen of Tears” with Kim Ji-won. He played the role of the lawyer husband of a conglomerate heiress. “Queen of Tears” topped Netflix’s non-English TV shows. It also broke records in Korea and is now tvN’s highest-rated television series.

Bench previously announced Kim Soo-hyun as an international brand ambassador on July 15, 2021.
