Netizens are shocked after noticing a strong similarity between NCT‘s Jaemin and actor Nam Goong Min—not just in looks, but in personality too.
And coincidentally, Nam Goong Min’s One Dollar Lawyer costar Kim Ji Eun also appears to resemble a K-Pop idol! According to netizens, she looks exactly like ITZY‘s Ryujin.
Jaemin is well-known for being not only one of the most prominent visuals in NCT but also for his extremely affable personality and unique sense of humor.

SBS dropped a teaser for the show on September 23 and since then, many fans have been unable to see Jaemin in Nam Goong Min’s acting.

yknow those goofy faces jaemin makes? watch namgoong min in good manager and you’ll find him doing the exact expressions. and then they often have the same way of speech, ranging from soft to hyper. and not to mention the copy paste face structure and smiles 😭 https://t.co/jxxCfAJgoX pic.twitter.com/G53YCTez3g

In fact, fans feel that Nam Goong Min could easily play Jaemin’s father.

It’s no surprise then that now the return of actor Jaemin is being called for, as a project between him and Nam Goong Min would be a must-watch!

But Nam Goong Min isn’t the only one with a K-Pop idol lookalike. His costar Kim Ji Eun has long been said to look like ITZY’s Ryujin.

Watching Nam Goong Min And Kim Ji Eun in One Dollar Lawyer, many fans felt like they were watching older Jaemin and Ryujin together in a K-Drama.
