Following the brand’s announcement that BTS’s V would be their spokesmodel, Compose Coffee saw an immediate positive effect with an increase of over 2.6 million new subscribers on their app.

Within two days of announcing his favorite drink by the coffee brand, there was a 72% increase in sales for Citron Tea.

While Jung Hyun Young acknowledged that having BTS’s V as a spokesmodel is significant in and of itself, the brand took extra measures to increase the impact of their partnership.

The incorporation of his love of jazz and music worked seamlessly with their slogan for the ad, “V is a composer, eVeryone is a composer,” and their slogan, “everyday fresh coffee.
