In the history of K-drama beauty trends, Ji Sung would be the first actor — read: not actress — who got a makeup product sold out.
Actor Ji Sung of Kill Me, Heal Me wore a lip tint, and got it sold out in a matter of time.

On the eighth episode of Kill Me Heal Me, which aired on January 29, Ahn Yona wore a pink suit with full makeup. In one scene, she whipped out a pink lip tint and wore it on her lips. It looked so good on her — Ji Sung — that fans started digging for the brand and color name of the lip tint. If you didn’t know, Korean fans are like detectives when it comes to finding things online.
After the episode aired, it was only a matter of time until the fans identified the lip tint, rebranding it as the “Yona tint.” It’s from makeup brand Hera, which actress Jeon Ji Hyun promotes.
It’s called Hera sheer holic pop tint color #1 Marilyn Pink. It’s sold out offline, but you can still get it on Amazon.
