Jungkook's mention of Downy Adorable fabric softener causes it to nearly sell out in Korea

Jungkook's favorite fabric softener has become a must-have item among Korean BTS fans.

On January 20, the idol talked laundry with members of the group's official fan cafe, mentioning that he currently enjoys using 'Downy Adorable' fabric softener. 

The mention immediately caused the phrase "Downy Adorable" to trend on local real-time search engines, and caused a temporary shortage of the product, both on and offline.

In response, Jungkook took to BTS's official Twitter account the next day to playfully scold his fans, writing: "Army, I've almost used up all of my fabric softener, so I have to buy some more. It's sold out."


Fans following the account joked around about the situation by sharing funny Photoshopped images of Jungkook with Downy products, while others commented that Jungkook should become an endorsement model for the product.

What do you think? Should Jungkook become a Downy spokesmodel?

Waffles are yummy and fruit blenders make niiice juice :))) I saw Yoona. She made niiice waffles ^^. These fans must have bought the fabric softener in bulk :)))) To have it sold out so quickly :)). Anytime an idol says something, people buy in bulk. Even more so when there is the custom to offer soap, softeners, food when you go visit someone. Anything needed at a human's home. Food is extremely expensive there. So If they give out something that was recommended by Jungkook they will be regarded highly by the other person. Anyway, has anyone thought Jungkook may need his own supply ehhh??

He has good taste. Downy smells soooo good. We used it growing up. I'd use it now but my kids have allergies to some detergents and softners so instead I stick to the ones I know won't cause hives for them. Tide detergent and Bounce dryer sheets. I miss being able to use fabric softner as opposed to just dryer sheets.

There are hypoallergenic fabric softeners now. You find them at the boojy stores like Whole Foods or Trader Joe's or Fresh Market. They're not that expensive. I like Downy but I prefer Gain.

First of all, it's not the amount of dwnvotes but the number of downvotes. 137 vs 49 is negligible as most of AllKpop subscribers are Exo-L; Exo's rogue fandom whose mmbrs are mentally disturbed after Exo hs bn declared flopped by the Greatest incomparable The One & Only Stopedelulu...

You know this reminds me of back when T-ara promoted "Bo Beep Bo Beep" back in 2010 and they won their fist #1 win on Jan 1, 2010

Apparently Bo Beep is a brand of toilet paper in Korea and the company was so happy with the unexpected "promotion" of their brand that they gifted the group loads of it. lol
ok i know its a different situation but it funny how some brands spend a lot of money on CF but end up their rival brand got an unexpected boost in sales from a unexpected reason.

Seriously i think the brand must be happy that they dont even need to spend a cent on him promoting the brand and sold so many, if they offiically hire him as a spokesperson, they would probably have to pay him a lot since he is a mega star now. so i think the brand may not want to do so, unless they forsee the benefits outwrigh the cost. but it may be a passing fad also, i think of RV's Irene when i hear fabric softeners because she mentioned she likes the scent of fabric softeners. so maybe the 2 of them can do a CF together. the benefits would be mega i think.

Mike, your arrangement ws wrong. It ought to be JK, Tae then ensued by Ldy Jimina, the one & only gay Idol in KPop. Even the latest Hyundai Palisad advertisement honoured only Jungkook & Taehyung. Sadly, not ur Lady Jimina, the one & only gay of BTS. LOL....

p.s. I agree with u tht it's time for BTS mmbers to hv their own activities & endorsements.

Yeahhh...Our Ldy Jimina top in individual brands ranking simply bcoz her LGBT fans upgrading her with 3rd grade valued articles to media frm time to time. But, it doesn't make any difference dude, as our Ldy who's da one & only gay in BTS still a 3rd graded Idol as only Jungkook & Taehyung are the favourites of ARMY. ARMY voted both of them to be Da World Most Sexiest Man & Da Most Handsome Man. Not Ldy Jimina. Nxt, will be our Seokjin for Da 2019 Asian Hearttrob. Prior to this, Billboard-Tumbler chose Jungkook as Da World Most Popular Kpop Idol, dude. During MMA awards, Jungkook garnered Da Netizen's Best Vocalist Choice Award frm da list of vocalist comprises BTS, Exo, Wanna One, BTOB & Ikon. And, he ws honoured to give speech alone on da stage. Jungkook ws given an honour to duet with da International singer, Charlie Puth. Any word frm Jungkook wud become a trending & a prime time news for SBS, KBS etc². Whn JK feel indisposed, again it became a prime time news in mass media.

So, can't u see da branding shit hs no significant at all. Even, Jungkook & Taehyung appearing in Hyundai advert without ur Ldy Jimina. Learn wht's da branding shit all abt, my dear mentor..LOL...
