With AI being used for more and more things seemingly every day, there are so many features available to pretty much everyone that can be cool to some and creepy to others. It has become increasingly difficult to tell when something is AI-created, and there’s a whole controversy over the use of AI in general, with K-Pop not being exempt from the trend.
The Snow app, which is a camera app that features virtual stickers using augmented reality and photographic filters, has been getting into the AI world too. And recently, a couple photos of NCT‘s Taeyong that show what he might look like as a woman using the app’s AI feature has caught traction online due to his apparent resemblance to another SM Entertainment artist.
Given that Taeyong is already gorgeous just as he is, it shouldn’t be too surprising that he is also stunning as the opposite gender!
On an online forum post sharing the two AI-generated images, the author claims that they think he looks eerily similar to aespa‘s Karina.
The first image shows him with light-colored hair while the second has dark hair, which is arguably more similar to Karina since she’s almost always had dark hair herself.
Some commenters do see the resemblance between Taeyong and Karina, and think they both look AI-levels of stunning to begin with.
- “Ah, he does..kinda interesting.”
- “So pretty.”
- “Wow, forreal.”
- “Taeyong’s face is literally AI, so he looks the same.”
- “Wow, he really does.”
- “Both are AI..”
- “The first one looks so real.”
- “Just by watching challenges, you can tell they look similar.”
International fans don’t see Karina so much as other idols, though, such as LE SSERAFIM‘s Eunchae or former AOA member Jimin.
Regardless of who it does or doesn’t look like, though, there’s no denying that female Taeyong is stunning!
