CERRITOS, CALIFORNIA - May 2023 – Korea Ginseng Corp., the world’s #1 ginseng brand, has just signed a sponsorship contract with LPGA golf star Andrea Lee on May 19th.
A record-setting Stanford alum, Andrea turned pro in 2019 and quickly earned the attention of the wider golf world with her victories at the Epson Tour’s Casino Del Sol Golf Classic and the LPGA Tour’s Portland Classic.
At the recent signing ceremony, held at the U.S. HQ of Korea Ginseng Corp. Andrea expressed her deep affection for CheongKwanJang's products, noting, “Even on those days when I’m not in a tournament, I’m training myself to be the best golfer I can be by hitting hundreds of balls and putting long hours in the gym lifting weights. Pre- and post-training, I’ve been taking CheongKwanJang’s Everytime to battle fatigue and maintain my health.”
To be a pro golfer, it takes 4 days and 72 holes of intense concentration and good health. In order to win, it’s not just a matter of skill level but also the ability to effectively manage stress and overcome daily fatigue.
Korean Ginseng Corp. points out that many sports stars favor red ginseng due to its fatigue reduction supporting benefits, as certified by the Korea Food & Drug Administration. Red ginseng rapidly reduces the lactic acid that develops over the course of intense physical training. A research study conducted by Shanghai University focused on 180 adults chronic fatigue. The results demonstrated that, over four weeks, the group who took 3.6g of red ginseng daily suffered 1.53 times less fatigue compared to the group who did not.
Andrea’s association with Korea Ginseng Corp. is not a new one. Korean red ginseng first became a part of her life through her father, James Lee, and Kim Sang-sik, the coach of the KGC basketball team. Andrea even posted a photo on her social media featuring herself with her ginseng products, introducing them to her followers as functional health supplements to combat fatigue and boost energy.
Rian Heung-sil Lee, CEO of Korea Ginseng Corp. U.S., expressed his gratitude for this latest partnership. "We are grateful for establishing this positive connection with Andrea Lee, who performs on the world stage. We plan to continuously support sports stars in the U.S. to help them improve their competitiveness.”
Korea Ginseng Corp. has been actively expanding into the U.S. market, beginning with the opening of its R&D center in February. As part of their rapid product diversification and aggressive brand expansion plans, KGC has also inked brand ambassador contracts with legendary Vietnamese-American actress Kieu Chinh and rising Korean-American star Arden Cho.
