Koreans look all the same

July 12, 2009

Selca pics of 2pm’s Lee Junho have circulated all over the net recently. And I do agree that the resemblance to Rain is surprisingly great. Honestly, I thought he was Rain’s brother when I first saw him. I think the eyes and the smile are the similarities. You won’t see it in this pic though.

I find a lot of celebrities look the same though my friends say that they’re not. When I was first introduced to SNSD, I couldn’t tell Seo Hyun, Yuri and Yoona apart. Actually, I can tell if it’s Yoona but whenever I see Seo Hyun and Yuri, I always think it’s Yoona. But who can blame me, just look at the pic.

I’m not good about details in the face. If I have to tell apart some people, I go with hair length and color, skin color, height etc., things that are obvious at first glance. When I got into Wonder Girls, they were promoting ‘So Hot’ at the time. I tell them apart by describing their physical features. Ye Eun was the red-head girl, Yoobin is the tanned lady, Sohee’s face was distinct enough for me to tell her apart, Sunye was the one with the sassy hairdo and then Sunmi. At the time, there wasn’t anything distinct about Sunmi. When I tell my friends about the Wonder Girls, Sunmi was always the 5th one. It was hard for me to describe her at the time.

I don’t know if people would agree with me but Super Junior’s Hankyung and 2pm’s Chansung do look like each other. Maybe it’s the eyes or the smile, I don’t know. I knew Super Junior first and when I got into 2pm, I was astounded by their similarities. For me, they could pass as brothers.




  1. yeah,,,
    i’m agree about chansung n hankyung…
    they’r look a like…
    n both of them so funny.. XDDD
    but i can recognize them…

    • At least I’m not the only one who thinks so.

  2. wow i thought i was the only one who thought yuri and seohyun looked alike. i just found out about snsd in july when they were promoting genie. and because they wore uniforms, they looked all the same. the only faces i could distinguish were hyoyeon, jessica (only blonde), tiffany (short hair). but yuri and seohyun took awhile.

    also, sunmi and yeeun looked identical. i just found about wg summerish too, and thats when sunmi still had her reddish short hair.

    now that i think of it, they look so different, but back then, i REALLY couldnt tell them apart

  3. hahah I don’t think Hankyung and Chansung look alike at all but then again there must be something to it because to me, Hankyung is the most attractive SuJu member and Chansung is the most attractive 2pm member ahah maybe because I like them both they must look similar. hahah, but either way I can definately tell a difference.

  4. my god you do suck at face details haha

  5. Hello!
    Look for Daesung and K.Will pics. They are really similars =]

  6. I think this is because Koreans are least mixed people in the world, latest genetic report suggest Koreans are most eastern people in Asia not too mention Koreans have fewer surnames only about 260 names and some suggested every Koreans are connected through their bloodline in one way another.

    Koreans are often use the word like “Uri’ or “Woori” meaning “Us” “ours”, they never says “my mother”, they says “Uri mother” “uri house” which refers to our mother, our house. This is because even koreans thinks they’re related as one big family.

    • Yeah except Hankyung is Chinese -_-“

  7. i dont really think they ALL look a like… sure some do but it’s just the hairstyles and skintones and how they put their makeup together…. durrrr 🙂

    but yeah i dont really think seohyun and yuri look alike….

  8. u all r looking nice in this pic i like it

  9. because.. the doctor is out of idea.. which part of the body shud he put in one of his customer.. (u know wat i mean.. PLASTIC SURGERY!!! korean is known for that..) then they’ll claim they don’t.. fuck..

  12. Aw, this was a really good post. Finding the time and actual effort to
