First we reported on Rain and Pizza Hut. Now fast-rising South Korean actor Lee Min-ho has been roped in by Dunkin’ Donuts for its new flower-shaped doughnut called Flower Tart.
The Flower Tart is apparently a tie-in to the hype surrounding popular KBS drama Boys Over Flowers, which Lee stars in. The 22-year-old was in Apgujeong-dong on Feb 24 for the photoshoot.
The Flower Tart comes in two jam toppings – strawberry and blueberry.
So here’s the question again. Will Lee Min-ho make you change your preference? :-P.
The Malaysia scenario: Dunkin’ Donuts seems to be kow-towing to its competitors such as J.Co Donuts and Big Apple Donuts.
Apart from that, I’ve seen a Krispy Kreme franchise (which was still under construction) at Berjaya Times Square last year. I don’t know how popular Krispy Kreme will be when it opens locally, but I had a couple of the Original Glazed doughnuts when I was in Seoul last November and it was yummy-licious.
Krispy Kreme, I’m a fan!
