Kim Soo Hyun for Samsonite RED.

If there's one brand of luggage that I can easily associate with, it has to be Samsonite. Coming from an OFW family, it's a brand that I have been familiar with since childhood.

I remember my grandfather's big black luggage bag was Samsonite, and opening it each time he'd come home from Saudi Arabia was a treat as it would be filled with toys and chocolates. Even my Mum, who comes home from the UK at least twice a year, is a fan of Samsonite bags. Every time we fetch at the airport, her red Samsonite carry on luggage makes her so easy to spot among the throng of balikbayans.

And so when news of Kim Soo Hyun endorsing Samsonite broke out, I couldn't be happier. One of my favorite Korean actors endorsing my favorite luggage brand... exciting, isn't it? :)

Here's a bit of info about Samsonite Red, the line that Kim Soo Hyun, together with Hong Kong model and actress Angelababy, is currently endorsing.
Kim Soo Hyun wears an Oben, while Angelababy carries a Bona.
Tailored to specifically cater to the lifestyle of the upwardly mobile, Samsonite Red features different styles in various materials. From sturdy nylon in neutral hues to highlight its simple and practical nature, to coated cotton twill mixed with supple leather that lends to a more urban aesthetic, to more utilitarian designs that feature water-proof material and even sleek all-leather options that show function doesn’t have to come at the expense of style.
Liebe, an all-in-one, unisex bag that can be used for day and night activities.
Comes in orange, gray, navy, and emerald green.
Liebe in Navy.
Diversity is essential to this collection. Samsonite understands that an ‘everyday bag’ isn’t a one size fits all concept; it is defined by the individual's aesthetic, everyday needs, and his or her way of life.
Easy-Way has multi-function and well-organized compartments.
Perfect for yuppies who go for the casual yet trendy style.
Fort has a minimalist style and comes in tooled leather.
It's available as a backpack, briefcase, and cross-shoulder bag.
It’s a collection that simplifies the process of finding a replacement for that trusty old travel backpack for men, by giving you a selection of options that range from minimalist to quirky - depending on ones's needs and personality.
Genio is very simple, yet pleasing to the eye with its nylon and leather combination.
It comes in backpacks, briefcases, and cross-shoulder bags.
Angelababy with a Bona mini cross bag; Kim Soo Hyun with a Genio briefcase.
Samsonite Red represents the kind of low-key collection that has become the benchmark of utility and style - simple, functional but still chic. And you can’t ask anything more from a fashion staple that you will essentially be wearing everyday.

Endorsements of products from celebrities has never really done anything for me. But I have always thought of Samsonite as a great brand, the products actually look pretty neat!

Those models are total eyecandy! I am always keen to try Samsonite but whenever I check the prices, they make me cry in frustration!

This looks like a nice option. Not too bulky at all.

Interesting that they use models to promote luggage now. For me, it's all about durability. I know Samsonite has been a leader in that area --- and if this new line works, then maybe it will make its way to the US!
