There are some K-Pop idols at SM Entertainment that fans jokingly call clones due to how similar they look to their seniors at the same label. For example, NCT‘s Taeyong has a striking resemblance to former SM idol Jaejoong of JYJ, NCT’s Jeno looked a lot like Super Junior‘s Donghae when he was younger, and even Renjun of NCT and Red Velvet‘s Wendy share a lot of similar characteristics!
There’s an SM Entertainment trio now that some fans think look surprisingly similar to each other, despite the fact that they all debuted in different generations! The line includes second-generation’s Taemin of SHINee…
Third-generation idol Jungwoo of NCT…
And the most recent addition, Anton of RIIZE, who debuted in the fourth/fifth generation!
Not everyone sees the similarities, but a recent clip from a music show where all three idols are seen smiling in the same frame has some people calling the trio triplets!
Jungwoo is hosting the episode of Show! Music Core where both Taemin and Anton appear after performing their respective songs. Taemin leans into frame beside Jungwoo, while Anton is seen smiling broadly behind them.

A forum post was made about the subject too, with several people in the comments also agreeing about their strikingly similar vibes.
Do you see the resemblance too?
