Paris Hilton was paid $1 million to star in a Korean pop video
The hotel heiress - who has herself released music in the past - shot a promotional film in Malibu for Kim Jang Hoon, where saw her don a bathing suit and heels and wander around a beach in a flowing white gown in the two-day shoot, for which she was paid the huge amount.
Kim`s agency told X17Online.com: "We considered several Hollywood stars, such as Jessica Alba, Scarlett Johansson and ParisHilton, for the role of lead actress in Kim`s new music video. But a survey conducted in Korea showed that ParisHilton was the most well-known, so we chose her."
Posting a picture of herself with Kim, Paris wrote on twitter earlier this week: "Love these pics of me & Kim Jang Hoon. Such a nice guy & funny too! Had a great time shooting with him! (sic)"
The video for the ballad, which has been shot in 3-D, is to be released on October 4.
Paris has recently ventured into new business areas recently, including her first men`s fragrance, and she revealed she is keen to open her own hotel chain like her great-grandfather Conrad Hilton.
She said: "I`m always working on building my brand. Next I want to be able to do my own hotels, nightclubs and restaurants. And I want to get more into real estate, which is my family heritage."
