On top of this list, we have Stray Kids’ Hyunjin and ITZY’s Yeji as the top “sibling-dols.”

These two idols from JYP Entertainment are often called twins because of their similar visuals, especially if they are in one frame or stand next to each other. Not only similar facial features, but they also have a few other similarities with each other.

First, they were both born in the year of 2000, thus making them kinda resemble the same-age twins. Second, they are named the “Hwang Family” or “Hwang Twins” by the fans because they have the same clan name, Hwang.

Three, they even look like each other since they were young, as can be seen by their early school photos. Four, they both are one of the tallest members of their respective groups. Hyunjin is 179 cm tall, while Yeji is 170 cm tall. Five, they have the same position in their groups, namely as the main dancer and lead rapper. Six, both of them have been part of JYP since 2015 and equally have a strong presence when they are performing on stage.

Having a face that equally has a calm aura, both NCT 127’s Jungwoo and Cosmic Girls’ Seola look very suitable to be siblings. The similarity between the two of them has long been a warm conversation among K-Pop fans.

They also have very similar facial features starting from their cute, rounded eyes to their doll-like lips. And both are also vocalists in both of their groups so they have the same talent and vocal skills!

On top of that, they were also caught having the same hair color several times! What a super coincidence!

Super Junior’s Heechul & Seventeen’s Jun

Since the beginning of boy group Seventeen’s debut in the middle of 2015, netizens and fans started to realize the similarity of Jun with his senior, Super Junior’s Heechul. In 2016, a post on the website Instiz written by a fan highlighted the handsome face of the Chinese personnel who was said to resemble Super Junior’s Heechul.

This was not the first time Jun was said to be similar to Heechul. The owner’s full name Moon Junhui is often said to be the twin idol born in 1983. Even when Seventeen covered the song “U” by Super Junior, Jun got to sing the part of Heechul.

After the post got a lot of buzz, Jun admitted that he indeed felt similar to his senior brother by posting a photo of himself juxtaposed with a photo of Heechul on his personal Weibo account.

Along with the photo, the Chinese member wrote, “During the promotion, I met Heechul sunbaenim and he said, ‘Wow, you look a lot like me!’ I don’t believe it, but I’m surprised by how similar we are when I see it in person.

On May 7th, 2016, not long after Jun’s post, Heechul responded to his message through his personal Weibo account by uploading a picture of him and Jun. The artist of SM Entertainment also admitted that Jun’s face was very similar to his.

He seriously looks like me. That kid grew up so much… he grew up well. He looks even more like me in real life. I was wondering why he was so good looking… I guess it’s because he looks like me,” joked Heechul on his Weibo account. Seeing this, netizens also began to collect other photographic evidence that shows that Jun and Heechul can be likened to like a betel nut in half.

This is really unique and interesting because when viewed from age, they have a difference of 13 years and even their nationality is different: Heechul is from South Korea, while Jun is of Chinese descent.

BTS’ Jimin & HOTSHOT’s Ha Sungwoon

BTS’ Jimin & HOTSHOT’s Ha Sungwoon

BTS’s Jimin and Hotshot’s Sungwoon are two close friends who are often referred to as similar, not only by fans but also by their friends.

Jimin himself debuted with BTS in 2013, while Sungwoon started his career with Hotshot in 2014 until he briefly debuted in the group Wanna One on August 7th, 2017.

Apart from their similar faces, they also have a lot in common. Maybe that’s why they have become close friends, because they feel comfortable with each other.

Funny story is, Sungwoon was familiar with BTS members for a long time, but initially, it was not with Jimin, but J-hope. J-hope and Sungwoon were both born in 1994, they also auditioned at JYP Entertainment in 2010. Sungwoon was first seen coming to a BTS concert in 2015, he was there to provide support to J-hope. Maybe because of seeing the similarity between Sungwoon and Jimin, J-hope also took the initiative to introduce them.

Jimin and Sungwoon eventually became close friends and belong to the same friendship group called Padding Squad along with SHINee’s Taemin, EXO’s Kai, Hotshot’s Timoteo, and Kwonho who is not a celebrity. Padding Squad is the name that fans gave to this gang because they have uniform padding or parka with a symbol of their own design.

This gang has existed for so long, it’s no wonder they have become very close and often spend their free time together. They even travel together from time to time.

In the Happy Together 4 program, Sungwoon was asked to talk about his resemblance to Jimin. He claimed that every time someone said that, Sungwoon immediately discussed it with Jimin. However, they both often joked with arguments because they both felt more handsome than their best friend.

In addition, when Wanna One was awarded and Sungwoon was delivering his speech, it is said that the BTS members continued to talk about it. Suga and J-hope continued to say that Sungwoon is very similar to Jimin, but Jimin said that Sungwoon doesn’t resemble him.

Even though Sungwoon is a year older than him, Jimin looks more like an older brother to him. Maybe because Jimin’s height is around 174 cm, while Sungwoon’s is only 167 cm. Maybe that’s why he treats his hyung as if Sungwoon was a younger brother.

Jimin shared her gratitude and brotherly love to his “twin” in the BTS album, Wings. He wrote, “Thank you to the hyungs who always encourage and love me, ever since I met you, something that made me tired became forgotten. Please take care of me well in the future, I love you.”

While Sungwoon talked about him in one of his interviews, “Jimin is one of my friends and seniors (in the K-Pop industry) that I love and care about the most. Whether it is on television shows or in real life, he is always so sincere, friendly, and kind. He is the best. He is my friend, but I’ve learned a lot from him. I’m grateful.”

Now, that’s a real brother!

KARA’s Youngji & Han Seung-yeon

Heo Youngji joined the K-Pop girl group Kara in 2015 during the comeback of “Mamma Mia” after the two former members, Nicole and Jiyoung, left the group in 2014. Even since the start of this comeback and Youngji’s addition, fans have been noticing the similarities of the facial features between Youngji and Seungyeon. On the “Mamma Mia” music video’s YouTube comments section, several KARA fans pointed out the similarities between Youngji and Seungyeon.

One user wrote in the comment section, “Haha! I’ve been a fan for so long, but Youngji and Seungyeon look similar to me… oops.”

Even before the release of KARA’s comeback music video, fans had been pointing out that the two looked so much alike, except for the fact that Seungyeon is slightly shorter than Youngji.

During Youngji’s appearance on the KARA Project, Korean netizens also commented on the articles saying that the two of them looked like sisters. Some new fans at that time even got confused while looking at the “Mamma Mia” music video, saying that it was hard to tell them apart.

Maybe they are real doppelgangers.

It is not a secret that VIVIZ member SinB is often referred to as the long-lost sister of Girls’ Generation’s ex-member-turned-solo artist, Jessica Jung. She has been drawing attention for her similar features to Jessica ever since her debut days. The two look alike from head to toe even down to a similar hairstyle.

After several photos of GFRIEND’s debut teaser were released, many netizens commented on the online forums, highlighting the nose, jawline, and large eyes of SinB that look a lot like Jessica’s early debut days. SinB also shares the same aloof aura as Jessica in her pictures, noting her as Ice Princess 2.0.

Since her early debut days, BLACKPINK’s Jennie was often referred to as “the fierce version of Naeun” by fans. Many fans said that Jennie is a fierce version of “bad girl” from Naeun who is known to have a cute and girly image, in accordance with the concept of APINK.

BLACKPINK’s Jennie and APINK’s Naeun’s faces indeed do look similar. Starting from the shape of the face, eyes, to the nose, they are almost identical. The difference is only in the lips where Jennie has thicker lips.
