Fans Discuss The Almost Eerie Similarities Between IVE’s Jang Wonyoung And Ahn Yujin

They were meant to debut together!

IVE‘s Jang Wonyoung and Ahn Yujin have a long history together, going back to their pre-IZ*ONE days when they were both trainees at Starship Entertainment. They even have the adorable friendship name “Annyeongz”, which is a combination of their full names.

Of course, they went on to both debut in IZ*ONE in October 2018, and after that, they both ended up in the highly successful rookie girl group that is IVE!

But their similarities go far beyond just training and debuting alongside each other twice. Recently, fans have discussed all of the almost eerie similarities that the two female idols have in common!

One ongoing trait that the girls had was that Yujin was always one centimeter shorter than Wonyoung after they both debuted for the first time. At that time, Wonyoung was listed at 169cm while Yujin was 168cm, and they maintained that difference all the way up until very recently!

Over the years, they went from 170cm and 171cm respectively to 172cm and 173cm, with Wonyoung always keeping that little bit of extra height. However, Yujin shared just a couple of days ago that she measured herself at 173cm most recently, making them both the same height for the first time since before debut!

And not only are their heights the same, but fans believe that their proportions — such as their knee height, hip height, and even their head size — are all extremely similar, which isn’t always the case even for people who are the same height.

The next similarity is their birthdays. Yujin was born on September 1, 2003 while Wonyoung was born on August 31, 2004, making them exactly one year and one day apart in age. They also had a leap year between their birthdays, so they’re 365 days total apart in age.

Even their names have a strange coincidence! Wonyoung’s name in Hangul is 장원영 while Yujin’s is 안유진, making their initials ㅈㅇㅇ and ㅇㅇㅈ respectively.

And the similarities continue. Both girls are the youngest of two daughters in their families, and they both have O-type blood. They’re both, of course, Virgos, due to their similar birthdays, and each of them consider white as one of their favorite colors. Finally, they both attended the prestigious School of Performing Arts Seoul (SOPA).

Here’s how Korean netizens are reacting to a post commenting on their similar heights and other coincidences!

  • It’s scary how their birthdays are only a day apart and their initials are ㅈㅇㅇ and ㅇㅇㅈ
  • ..? If Ahn Yujin is 173cm tall, just how tall is Jang Wonyoung?
  • Jang Wonyoung and Ahn Yujin are tall, have long legs, good physique, pretty faces, they were trainees together since middle school and debuted together as IZ*ONE and debuted again as IVE after [IZ*ONE] disbanded, and they won the grand award. They really succeeded in life
  • It’s scary to me how their knees and hips are the same height and how their faces are similar sizes. People that have the same height have different physiques but even that is similar
  • Isn’t it so amazing? They were together since they debuted in their teens and now spending their 20s together. They’re only one year apart, and even their birthdays are a day apart, yet their heights are similar tooㅋㅋㅋㅋ

International fans have chimed in with their comments as well.

It seems like Wonyoung and Yujin really were meant to debut together with so many similarities shared between them!
