These CFs are the birthplace of many, many memes. Enjoy.


Be careful with what concept you debut with – it will haunt you forever!

Girls’ Generation

From the choreo mess-ups to that fake laughing at the end, this CF is a classic!


If you can’t get enough of her “Apple tok tok,” there’s also other flavors as well (each with JooE’s trademark dancing of course). From rick rolling to mash ups, this became a viral meme in Korea.


The hair, that flashy background – this CF just screams early 2000s. (And it was most recently referenced in SHINee’s SNL skit.)


This is a forever classic! G-Dragon acting cute is so funny!


Best watched on Valentine’s Day.

Super Junior

Why are chicken CFs in Korea so extra?


We miss you SISTAR!


Sandara? More like Sun-Dara!

And of course, we can’t forget the collabs!

Girls’ Generation and TVXQ

Tag yourself. I’m forever alone Junsu.

Girls’ Generation and 2PM

Not quite a cringy CF, but a legendary one. This was an extra AF CF for a water park, and its efforts were well appreciated by both fandoms.


“Hip hop is dead” – Suga probably.

MONSTA X’s Shownu and DIA’s Yebin

This “Goblin” parody is hilarious!
