In fact, G-Dragon’s Chapai ad was recently posted on Weibo first, drawing attention. Following such online promotions, Chapai is conducting large ad screens and offline ads across China. Also, the expectations for the official video ad are rising rapidly.

And the responses are hot. Thanks to G-Dragon’s unwavering popularity, Chapai is having an effective marketing campaign.

Since G-Dragon’s Chapai ads were released, a Chinese fan has bought 818 sets of drinks (both 6 bottles and 4 bottles) in accordance with his birthday, August 18, and posted a proof shot of it on her SNS account.

In the past, G-Dragon acted as the face of Chapai with other Big Bang members.

Now that Big Bang’s influence and popularity in the Chinese market have been proven once again, the public is increasingly putting their expectations on the group’s future plans.
