Koreans accuse IU of trying to copy Sulli’s signature smile

Netizens often accuse idols of copying others when it comes to style and fashion. However, netizens recently accused solo singer IU of copying something a little harder to imitate. 

According to a netizen on Instiz, IU’s smile is so similar to former f(x) member Sulli‘s smile that a post was created to show how similar the two look. The post compared several gifs and images of IU and Sulli, concluding that the two singers both share a unique open-mouth, teeth-baring smile. However, because the two are very close friends, having a similar smile doesn’t necessarily mean IU is conscious copying Sulli.
