There hasn’t been much news lately about Yoon Eun Hye. It seems she may be on vacation, since she was last spotted in New York City about 3 weeks ago. But in the meantime there’s been some news about actresses that look like Yoon Eun Hye and some even being called the 2nd coming of YEH. Let’s take a look shall we?
Eun Jung: Similarities to Yoon Eun Hye’s Go Eun Chan
Eun Jung, leader of T-ara, who is taking on her first acting role in SBS drama Coffee House, stated that being compared to Yoon Eun Hye due to the drama’s title and character is something to feel good about.
Eun Jung plays an innocent character, Kang Seung Yeon, in Coffee House, which premiered on May 17. More importantly, with her short hair and carefree personality, Kang Seung Yeon bears similarity to the character Go Eun Chan from MBC’s hit 2007 drama, Coffee Prince.
Yoon Eun Hye received massive popularity when she acted in a cross-dressing role for Coffee Prince. Yoon Eun Hye was lauded for not only her acting skills, but also for her ability to entertain.
Eun Jung, who recently interviewed with MoneyToday’s Star News, stated:
“It’s natural for people to compare Seung Yeon with Coffee Prince’s Go Eun Chan because it has the word Coffee in the drama title and the characters are similar. Because the story is different, the comparison will slow down as more episodes air, but it makes me feel good just to be compared to her.”
She even asked the reporter an out of the ordinary question, “Do you think Yoon Eun Hye sunbae-nim watches Coffee House?” (Sunbae-nim is a respectful term used to address people who debuted before you or have more professional accomplishments/experience). She ended by saying that the entire staff is working very hard, and that she hopes many will enjoy the show with her.
I haven’t watched Coffee House so I can’t really comment on how similar it is to Coffee Prince. But it’s hard for me to believe that anything that tries to emulate Coffee Prince or Go Eun Chan can actually surpass the original. Coffee Prince is one of a kind!
Jung So Min: The Second Coming of Yoon Eun Hye?
Jung So Min, who plays the role of Hong Mo Ne in SBS drama Bad Guy, is receiving attention from the viewers with her acting skills. Her voice and her looks are also similar to Yoon Eun Hye, and she has earned the nickname of the “2nd Coming of Yoon Eun Hye.”
Regarding her natural acting, the viewers commented, “Is she really a new actress?”, “She doesn’t seem like she’s had any plastic surgery done.”, “Perhaps it’s because she is from the Korea School of Arts. but her vocalization and face expression acting skills are superb.” and etc.
The viewers continued that Jung So Min’s natural, non plastic surgery face reminded them of Yoon Eun Hye and showed their interest in her by calling her the “2nd Coming of Yoon Eun Hye.”
Jung So Min does have a striking resemblance to Yoon Eun Hye. In particular her lips are practically identical to YEH and she even has those 2 rabbit teeth in front. YEH has more prominent cheek bones and a meatier nose. So yes, she does look a lot like YEH but whether she can match YEH’s professional success has yet to be seen.
