Fans claim this female idol would be perfect to play Mulan

A live-action action version of Mulan is set to be released in 2018 and fans believe that this idol bears a striking resemblance to the main character.

The whitewashing of stories by Hollywood and Disney is a story almost as old as film itself, but fans and movie-goers worldwide have recently begun to be aware of the issue and have been railing against it. From the controversy surrounding films like Ghost In The Shell to the digital lightening of Korean celebrities’ skin, whitewashing is coming out as one of our time’s important issues.

With the production of a live-action version of Disney’s 1998 hit Mulan just around the corner, movie-goers have become concerned about its casting. Thankfully, it appears that the production studio is moving in a progressive direction and is determined not to whitewash the film by casting an Asian woman as the lead.

Naturally, K-Pop fans have weighed in on the matter and believe that they have found the perfect candidate to play Mulan. With her round face and perfect cupid’s bow, fans claim that 2NE1‘s Minzy is the obvious choice for any Mulan live-action show or movie.

Even Minzy couldn’t help but agree with her fans and shared this picture of herself next to an image of Mulan on her Instagram.

Fans have created other side-by-side photos, noting the resemblance.

Her eyebrows and upwards slanted eyes give her the same fierceness that Mulan has, and her round face and lips give her the same adorableness.

Minzy even seems to like Disney Princesses in general, posting them often on her Instagram, so her as Mulan seems like it would be a match made in heaven.
