Pointing out the fact that @paerploytae not only looks like Rosé but also “acts like” Rosé, Koreans have affectionately nicknamed @paerploytae “Rosé-gongie,” as a twist on the name of the popular YouTuber Minseogongie who, in the past, went viral for his resemblance to actor Park Bo Gum.

Not a lot is known about the idol doppelgänger @paerploytae other than what is public on the TikTok account. As evident from the videos, however, this 18-year-old TikToker is fashionable and talented—and beautiful in their own way, regardless of their resemblance to Rosé!
