Chinese Man Goes Viral For Looking Like Song Joong Ki, Company Reduces His Salary

Is he being penalized for his looks?

A Chinese man who looks like Song Joong Ki has had his salary reduced after his images went viral.


The airport worker was filmed walking down a Xiamen runway with his hand in his pocket and suavely wearing black sunglasses by a woman who noticed the similarity.


The video went viral on Weibo and other social media sites with more than 100 million views.

All the comments exclaim how much he looks like Song Joong Ki in Descendants of the Sun, which was a very popular drama in China.


But now the airport company has allegedly issued a 10% paycut in the worker’s salary as disciplinary action due to “poor attitude and poor clothing.”

The airport worker responded to the controversy by saying it was his fault for not following the rules.

This isn’t the first Song Joong Ki doppelganger to surface, after a China Southern flight attendant gained popularity in 2016 for being repeatedly mistaken for the Korean top actor.
