To attract more customers, many local brands adopt a celebrity endorsement strategy with Korean stars.

However, it becomes a concern whether this strategy can bring the intended result and bring actual buying behavior.

This study uses quantitative analysis with Partial Least Square Equation Modeling (PLS-SEM) to analyze the data. The result of this study shows that Celebrity Endorsement shows a positive relationship with Perceived Product Quality. And
Perceived Product Quality positively affects Brand Loyalty.
