Hello, Kuya Wil?

TV host Willie Revillame recently made quite a buzz on social media when a netizen jokingly said in a now viral Facebook post that the former has moved to Korean media company Seoul Broadcasting System (SBS), drawing attention to the thought that he could be the spitting image of Delayed Justice star Kwon Sang Woo.

Because of that, we now can’t help but notice other Korean favorites who bear a strong resemblance to Filipinos in the entertainment scene. Here’s a quick round-up of some of those who effortlessly take their twinning tendencies to a whole new level!

Many have also pointed out Kuya Kim's resemblance to Coffee Prince and Train to Busan actor Gong Yoo. Can you see it, too?

AC Bonifacio and Jennie Kim

Take just one glance at AC Bonifacio and you can already tell she looks a lot like Jennie of BLACKPINK! AC is a huge fan of the girl group. Earlier this year, she won second place in their dance cover contest.

Kaori Oinuma and Jun Ji Hyun

We would love to see PBB housemate Kaori Oinuma play Jun Ji Hyun's character in a local adaptation of TV drama The Legend of the Blue Sea.

Loisa Andalio and Tzuyu

Who else agrees that Loisa Andalio and Tzuyu of girl group TWICE could totally pass as sisters?

Kisses Delavin and Rosé

In the Philippines, Kisses Delavin can be our very own Rosé, who is a well-loved member of BLACKPINK. What do you think?

Daniel Padilla and Tao

Daniel Padilla and Tao of K-pop boy band EXO not only have the same hair, they are also both charming. Side by side, they look equally irresistible!

Kylie Padilla and Han So Hee

Filipino actress Kylie Padilla share striking similarities with Han So Hee, a South Korean beauty who has become famous for her roles in Money Flower in 2017 and 100 Days My Prince in 2018.

Kris Lawrence and Taeyang

Local singer Kris Lawrence looks just as captivating as BigBang's Taeyang. The latter, whose real name is Dong Young Bae, is a Korean singer, songwriter, and dancer.
