Middle-aged Korean women may single-handedly be contributing to the success of multiple retailers and fashion lines. This demographic has a reputation for being savvy shoppers as well as avid fans of dramas.They are quick to find out what kind of handbag their favorite character was carrying or what type of table the most popular fictional family had in their dining room. When the latest episodes conclude, many instantly look up the brands and products that caught their eyes and add them to their shopping list. Businesses are eager to capitalize on this trend and are often willing to pay a small fortune to the producers of television shows or drama series to go toward product placement. But that”s not the case for three 20-something art school grads who started a small furniture business in 2010 out of a rented office in Hongdae, western Seoul. The young entrepreneurs contend it”s quite the opposite, actually: television producers come to them looking to sponsor their furniture. Perhaps only a select few may have noticed that the current KBS show “The Human Condition” as well as the action flick “The Divine Move” both feature furniture manufactured by the trio”s company, Kaare Klint. Their products already appeared in the hit television drama series “Answer Me 1994“, “A Gentleman”s Dignity“, and “My Husband Got a Family“.
