K-pop star Seungri has become a model for the online dating app Tinder in Korea, YG Entertainment announced Thursday.
In one of the ads, Seungri is dressed in a suit and holds a champagne glass. In another, he is dressed casually with a smartphone in his hand.
“Friends of many nationalities that I meet through tours abroad and business use Tinder a lot,” said Seungri in a press release. “It’s a good fit for me, as I enjoy meeting new people,” he said on modeling for the app.
Larger versions of Seungri’s Tinder ads will be displayed in Gangnam and Suseo stations, among other locations, beginning Thursday.
The Tinder ad marks Seungri’s first solo endorsement since he debuted with the group Big Bang in 2006.
Tinder is a location-based social mobile app that allows people in nearby areas to meet and form relationships.
