Jun Ji Hyun is one of the highest-paid and most in-demand actresses in South Korea for obvious reasons—apart from her numerous acting awards and nominations (there are too many to count!), she’s also known as one of the most bankable and prettiest faces in the world of Hallyu. An endorsement from her can make any beauty product fly off the shelves!
But what if we told you that this Korean superstar from My Sassy Girl, My Love from the Star, and Legend of the Blue Sea actually has a Filipino lookalike?
Meet Lisette Bendicion, a 21-year-old model. She’s got the same set of straight brows and almond eyes that we envy about the K-drama actress, and the internet is now referring to her as Jun Ji Hyun’s local doppelgänger. "I get it a lot," Lisette tells Preview. "Every time I go on a shoot with new people, they always tell me that I look like her."
ABS-CBN Lifestyle was the first to point out that they “could easily pass [off] as twins,” and even Lisette’s followers on social media seem to agree.
When asked how she feels about being compared to the Hallyu superstar, Lizette only has this to say: "I feel very honored—because who wouldn't be? I've watched some of her shows before; I love how she acts and she's very beautiful." To which, the rising model adds, "But of course, at the end of the day, I still want to be known as me."
What do you think? Do you see their resemblance, too?
