It seems as if a month doesn’t go by without a new Netflix K-Drama dominating the worldwide rankings, with global viewers falling in love with them at an unprecedented rate. It started with Squid Game, My Name, and the reality series Single’s Inferno.
The latest K-Drama that has caught fans’ attention is the zombie teen flick All Of Us Are Dead.
One character who has gained a lot of positive attention from fans is Choi Nam Ra, played by actress Cho Yi Hyun. Throughout the series, she captivated viewers’ hearts with her role as the cold valedictorian and class president.
In the beginning, Choi Nam Ra is portrayed as a selfish and coldhearted individual. After the zombie outbreak, she opened up her heart to help her fellow students.
Although Yi Hyun has gained attention for her amazing acting, many have also shared a love for her idol-like visuals.
In particular, when the show started airing, netizens quickly realized the rising star resembled an idol before they debuted, and it is none other than aespa‘s Karina!
Since debuting, Karina has cemented her status as a true visual in K-Pop. Yet, even before she debuted, although she looked very different from now, she still had this effortless beauty and grace.
Although Yi Hyun is now a lot older than Karina was in the pictures, as the idol is five months younger, many could help but put the images of Yi Hyun in the show and the younger Karina together and find comparisons.
In the picture shared on social media, the similarities are undeniable, with both having small faces with distinct features, including the nose and adorable smile, and the same hairstyle.
When the tweet was first shared, netizens couldn’t believe the similarities. Many K-Pop fans even shared that they thought Yi Hyun looked familiar for some reason but couldn’t put their finger on why until it was posted online.
Yet, even when she isn’t in the iconic green uniform, Yi Hyun has been gaining attention for her visuals which could easily be seen in a K-Pop girl group. Whether she is dressed up…
Or just relaxing in casual wear…
There is no denying that All of Us Are Dead has skyrocketed the cast to fame they wouldn’t have expected. With the show’s success, no doubt that the likes of Yi Hyun and the others will only continue to grow.
