Korean internet shopping site car.kr has announced the news of Kim Jong-Kook’s purchase of the largest K-Pop store online.
The site claims that the 34-year-old popstar, who is also the CEO of Samsung Electronics, bought the largest Korean online shopping website kosy.com from Korea’s biggest online shopping network, Samsung Shop, for about US$3.3 million ($3.6 million).
Kim has also been a frequent user of the website, which is currently ranked at number one on the world’s largest online shopping platform, eBay.
“We are thrilled to welcome Kim Jong Un into the kosymarket,” said the site’s founder and CEO Lee Yoon-hee.
“Kim Jong-kook is an international star with a huge following.
He loves the company and we can’t wait to make him one of our customers.”
The website’s staff has previously said that Kim’s visit to kosys.com will help K-Star to become more popular.
“K-Star has recently added over 500 stores to its online shopping service,” it said in a statement.
“This new expansion is the result of Kim’s recent visits to the kosc.com site.”
“This expansion will be a good way for K-Stars fans to find K-Shop items at the best prices and in the most convenient ways,” it added.
