Doppelganger: SS501’s Kim Hyeon Joong with Yamapi and Lee Dong Gun (and his scandal with Gummy)


Instead of studying/sleeping early, i ended up watching KBS’ Star Golden Bell challenge when I saw this guy (above right) who bore a resemblance to Yamapi! Pointed it out to my sister who agreed to. Found out he was SS501’s Kim Hyeon Joong… have heard of the group name but never really gave any real notice… until tonight! 

Hair has a great part to play in this resemblance though.. cos when i googled around for Kim Hyeon/Hyun Joong’s photos and he doesn’t REALLY look like him anywhere else! So guess what I did? Took my camera sat beside my TV and waited till the cameras focussed on K.H.J. and took photos of him off my TV! OMG! That’s quite…. hardcore. This blog is slowly dominating my life!!! but i just HAD TO GET this doppelganger post out tonight! HAHA


Also, Hyeon-Joong said that while SS501 was in Japan, there were rumours of a scandal between him and Gummy. Apparently nobody on the set had ever heard of the scandal other than for the two persons involved HAHA (Gummy was on the set too) but whatever. The show is quite funny. Also, Gummy has a similar asymmetrical hairstyle, longer hair on the right side too. Am too tired to stake out in front of the camera to get a shot. And don’t really care about this scandal anyway haha.

Doesn’t resemble Yamapi much from front view.

Here he looks a bit of Oguri Shun + a bit of Akanishi Jin + a bit of Yamapi.If you get what I mean. But he ends up looking just normal only lah he’s one of those guys that look VERY VERY different from pic to pic

The Oguri-Shunny resemblance struck me more intensely in the above gif-image. (i hope it loads well… not looking too good at the moment)

Here he looks like Lee Dong Gun with smaller eyes. Haha! And some other korean actor I’ve seen before but never really paid attention to. Okay enough crap. Good night world.

  1. 1 XOXO

    i know this is a bit off topic, but since there’s mention of yamapi (prodai) and i have this current absorption with “last friends” i can’t ignore the feeling that masami nagasawa (gah, she’s everywhere!) resembles someone, i just can’t put my finger on it. then i saw this pic of ha ji won ( hmmm, whacha think? maybe on certain angles? though acting wise i think ji won wins hands down as she’s more of the edgy/strong type while nagasawa is more of a ditz/naive type. lol sorry this is so random:P

  2. 2 anan

    Have to admit there is a slight resemblance. But another guy who can be used as resemblance to Yamapi is Show Luo Zhi Qiang. Alot of people has been telling me they look alike though I always say Yamapi is much cuter. haha

  3. to anan : check out

    haha before i came up with doppelganger idea i did note their resemblance haha

    to XOXO – don’t need to apologize! i love getting comments and ideas n ill credit you if i turn them into entries!! haha will keep in mind plus google more ha ji won pix after my exam tmr!! really shouldnt be using com now…….. o_O

  4. 4 XOXO

    lol and you were still able to reply! thanks. btw, what year are you in college? trust me, i know how it is to be torn between fangirling (yes, this word should be officially included in the dictionary as a verb, lol) and school work. gambatte!

  5. haha i’m in my first year!!! but it’s nearing the end already come august and I’ll be a second year. are you located in the US?? (since you used the word “college” haha)

  6. 6 XOXO

    oh yeah was i supposed to use university? lol. i stayed in the US for a while then continued my studies in asia. i’m a fresh grad. and i have too much time on my hands while looking for a job. result: fangirling. i have got to stop! haha. you’re now in singapore, right? i’ve been planning to go there since forever!

  7. haha not that you’re SUPPOSEd to but people hwo say “college” tend to have studied/be from the states!! yes im singaporean!! so you’re somewhere in asia now!??! way cool! my youngest sister is going to bangkok in june for Big Bang’s concert!! (but wait do you follow Korean-pop ?? haha) if you do drop by singapore we can meet for coffee or smth! ^_^ ill introduce you to the durian HAHA (or maybe you have it where you are!)

  8. just saw some photos of ha ji won she doesn’t rEALLY look like nagasawa masami to me… but sometimes it’s the characters they play. like how i don’t really think aoi yuu + jung ryeo won look all that much alike (and actually……….. they don’t really have/play the same kters either come to think of it O_O) but just felt there was some………………. something doppelt. HAHAHA what shows did ha ji won act in?! ok going to sleep now another full day of studygin tmr T.T

  9. 9 XOXO

    lol i’m more into jpop, but i know big bang. the last kpop craze i had was se7en, which was eons ago. but i do think that korean celebs are more fashionable (most of the times), less tacky (hello, JE’s stylist MUST BE elton john and some dude stuck in the 80’s) and they have good singers. i mean, with really good vocal quality (sunmin, boa, etc). SOME jpop singers sound a little squeaky (like those girly lolita groups, lol). wow, going to places to see concerts must be fun! btw, i’m also a freelance writer by profession. i used to write movie reviews/ features for our “university” (lol) online page. that’s why i’m so keen on reading features. sorry too much info! i’d love to try durian! heard it smells pretty bad?

  10. 10 XOXO

    btw, ha ji won was in memories of bali and that drama where she played some kind of a korean version of the jap geisha? haven’t seen it yet but she got rave reviews for it. and she was in that movie with kwon sang woo. maybe they have the same smile, that’s all. speaking of reviews, i’ll post my first impressions of “last friends” in the ratings corner if that’s okay. promise, no spoilers!

  11. haha no problem.. i like to read comments + part of the fun of having this blog is just that! talking to people off the net. omg freelance writer!! i’ve thought about doing something like that, but isn’t it quite hard to keep track of the $$ coming in? I think if i were one i’d just slack off and when i run out of money call my mummy or smth O_O very bad. sigh it’s time for studyyinggg again. but after i have my brunch! \(o^_^o)/

  12. 12 XOXO

    freelance is only difficult because it’s not a regular job. maybe i can look for a job in singapore! lol. i wanted to get a scholarship grant there before but i missed the deadline huhu. goodluck with your studies! btw, why the name superoldgranny? are you related to h no granny? (i read a post here somewhere with that name)

  13. haha no im not related to H no Granny! I’ve just been using “superoldgranny” since I was 9 years old… long story. anyway no probs (referring to your other replies) with long posts! HAHA and have fun doing whatever you’re doing that will keep you away from gossip ^_^

    yamapi is much much more gd-lookin! =D

  15. 15 Rai

    I found this page called, they have a big collection of Lee Dong Gun pictures and videos. Check it out yourself here

  16. 16 lady

    ummm no offence but ive encountered so many people saying Yamashita Tomohisa looks like this and that but NOT a single one bear resemblance to him and that guy is no different. Its the hair people…similar hair style thats it. That guys eyes are dopey whereas Tomohisa’s are soft and innocent. Even the nose. That guy’s nose is not prominent nor stunning like that of Tomohisa. Even the picture used is not recent nor does it feature a full front of his face. That guy looks more of Wu Chun and O.Shun’s love child.

    Comparing these two is insulting to one of the most beautiful asian men on the planet. And I say/write this without any bias And I dont mean to offend.

    “Comparing these two is insulting to one of the most beautiful asian men on the planet.”
    That’s kind of harsh to both of them don’t cha think? I mean it’s obvious you defend Pi, so I do feel a little offended.
    I have like the hugest heart, I love a bunch of male idols *is guilty*. But I think we have to agree that no matter how pretty/hot one can be, EVERYONE has their “ugly moments”. I’m not saying that they’re juts ugly, I’m just saying that there are times when they don’t look so fine, (due to many reasons, such as fatigue or being too skinny/fat)
    Being not too familiar with the Korean idols myself (I mean I’ve only started stalking them for like half a year?), I didn’t really catch on to SS501 until I was watching X-MAN a few months back. I forgot who else was on there, but I know HyunJoong was there. And at that time I seriously thought he looked almost identical to Golf-Mike (More so Mike, but what the heck, GM look identical in the beginning anyways). Of course I don’t really think they look alike anymore, because along with time, you get used to seeing a certain idol’s face and it gets easier to recognize them and in the end, they just don’t look so similar anymore. (But really, I don’t think HyunJoong looks similar to Pi… Oh but I guess I can see where you find the resemblance from Jin now. I suppose it’s the eyes? HyunJoong has complained about his somewhat baggy eyes before and I know we all know that Jin has this problem himself too.)

    no offense
    i find kim hyun joong way hotter and cuter than any of the mentioned above
    ok the first time i saw him i thought he looked a little like yamapi
    i’m sure it was the hair style
    but as i watched this guy more an more
    i fell for him deeper and deeper
    i’ve watched in shows like xman love letter and of course the beginning was with we got married
    this guy is so unique his personality is one of a kind in my opinion
    whoever says that yamapi is hotter
    i have to say i don’t agree
    i just don’t get why girls go crazy over him all the time
    while he did not intrigue any interest in me
    well you don’t have to get angry that’s my opinion just like you are posting your opinion
    i sooooooooooo find kim hyun joong-ssi the best among all of these
    he’s so handsome and so cute and sooooo innocent
    i totally adore him
    and i really had about enough of people always saying that yamapi is hotter
    he’s NOT
    i have to state however that most of my dislikeness towards yamapi was because of the an-an magazine Photostat
    he really lost most of his glamour in my eyes after the disgraceful photos
    whereas hyun joong oppa is still maintaining his great image and his innocence

    sorry again to the blog writer
    i really don’t mean to post any comments that might bother you
    but i just couldn’t take it
    because i’m a big fan of that oppa and i really feel angry ’till the point i have to defend him ^^
    it’s not like he’ll know about this or anything,, but whatever i really had to do that

    sorry for the looooooooong comment but whenever it involves my two beloved hee chul oppa and hyun joong oppa i become like this
    oppa-duel aja aja hwaiting~~

    however,thanks for the blog ^^

    He resembled Michael Jackson in his recent CF for Tony Moly !

  23. 23 a fan

    Kim hyun joong got in WGM(We Got Married) programme. Both of them is nice. But I love Hyun Joong more, maybe because i’v been watching his videos everyday that’s why I’m attached to him than Yamapi.

    Yamapi, I know him from Toma Ikuta’s vids, which is an actor from ‘Hanazakari no kimitachi e’. Toma is really nice and cute, he’s also funny. Yamapi and him kind of attached to each other.

    Totally, I like Hyun Joong the most. I think everyone will say both of them is nice too. They are totally different whether in real life or in pics. I don’t see any similarity between them.

  24. 24 a fan

    To me, I supported any idol in this world as long as the person is nice and good. I respected Yamapi as he is and HyunJoong as he is.

    Thanks to the blog writer who is trying hard for this blog.

    ‘Don’t judge people by it’s cover’, Yamapi is also human, seems like there is some people who is saying Yamapi is not good enough compared to hyunjoong. Although I like Hyunjoong more, but we should supported them for trying hard to success.

    Understand who is Yamapi and HyunJoong through vids and news so you would understand who they actually are. Wish for the best !

  25. 25 Nicki

    Don’t know yamapi and I googled him because his looks had been associated to Kim Hyun Joong in several sites and forums. I don’t mind the comparison and in some angles there is a bit similarity but saying yamapi is way much good looking is off. It clearly shows that poster is a yamapi fan and for a Hyun Joong addict like me, that’s like waving a red flag in front of a bull LOL.

  26. 26 ainy

    i’ll ALWAYS say Kim hyeon joong is far way more hotter cmpared 2 anyone else which r said 2 rsemble him…but,they don’t really look alike..well,atanishi jin looks abit like hyeon joong,but,Jin is too THIN to be said as HOT at all..

    L.O.V.E. you kim hyeon joong..4eva..huhu


  27. 27 dew

    former Philippine’s matinee idol turned
