K-pop idols are already unrealistically good looking, so it is no surprise that some of them have fictional twins in anime (Japanese cartoon animations)! Whether they are cosplaying as the characters, like Jonghyun and Changmin who dressed up as Naruto and Portgas D. Ace, or have no idea that they are the embodiment of the anime stars, here are a few more we have found!
Jeonghan of SEVENTEEN as Ikki from “Amnesia”
With an intriguing gaze and set smile Jeonghan reminds us of the eerie Ikki. It also helps that his beautiful hair is practically the same color!
Cha Eun Woo of ASTRO as Kazuto Kirigaya from “Sword Art Online”
Cha Eun Woo has already gained attention for his perfect rookie visuals and he really does look like a fictional figure! Especially with his dark hair and big eyes, we cannot help but see the resemblance he has to Kirito.
BamBam of GOT7 as Nishinoya from “Haikyuu!!”
Most of the similarities obviously come from the hair colors and brown eyes between BamBam and Nishinoya. They are also both enthusiastic and hardworking if you look at their personalities!
Yunho of TVXQ as Rukawa Kaede from “Slam Dunk”
Hilariously enough Yunho’s retro look from years ago gained attention for its similarities to an older anime character called Rukawa! We can not tell what looks more alike; their straight defined eyebrows, their long noses, or their small mouths.
Hyungwon of MONSTA X as Kou Mabuchi from “Blue Spring Ride”
Another newer idol that has garnered recognition for his visuals is Hyungwon. With his model like stature, striking brown eyes, and small smile, he looks exactly like the perfect heart-breaker Kou!
Jeongyeon of TWICE as Haruka Tenou from “Sailor Moon”
After seeing other members of TWICE dress up as Sailor Moon, we can not help but think of Sailor Uranus every time we see Jeongyeon! Does anybody else see the resemblance in their hair, face, and height?
T.O.P of BIGBANG as Kakashi Hatake from “Naruto”
Kakashi often has an opposing and cold impression to those that first see him, and in many cases T.O.P does as well. Besides their startlingly similar hair, we also had our attention drawn to their identical eye shape and jawline!
Mingyu of SEVENTEEN as Sosuke Yamazaki from “Free! Iwatobi Swim Club”
The members of SEVENTEEN have voted Mingyu to be the member with the personality that varies the most from his appearance. While he looks manly or sexy on stage, he can be very derpy and lovable in real life. This immediately reminded us of the large Sosuke from “Free!”
P.O of Block B as Kuwabara Kazuma from “Yu Yu Hakusho”
These lookalikes are seriously getting out of hand, and we would like to ask if P.O’s hair stylist is Kuwabara’s fan? What other explanation can be found for P.O’s unique but exact replica of Kuwabara’s hairdo?
CL of 2NE1 as Ino Yamanaka from “Naruto”
From the winged eyeliner to the elegant ponytail, CL and Ino’s resemblance is evident! They are also both confident and independent pioneers in their worlds.
Can you think of any other K-pop and anime lookalikes? let us know in the comments!
