A sexy male idol who gets called the “Japanese twin” of BTS’s Jungkook
This Japanese idol was also born in 1997, the same year as Jungkook!
A special thing about BTS’s Jungkook is that there are many celebrities who have been commented on to look like him. 3-year-old boy Hong Eunwoo became famous overnight thanks to being labeled the “child version” of Jungkook. Golden Child’s Y, DAY6’s Sungjin or Kep1er’s Kang Yeseo also have viral moments which are said to resemble BTS’s maknae.
Jungkook even has “twins” in… Japan. His first lookalike is a former member of Rev. from DVL – Kanna Hashimoto. She is called the “female version of Jungkook” thanks to her big round eyes and innocent visual that make fans think of Jungkook in his debut days.
The second one is Japanese male idol Sho Hirano, who has both similar facial features and even career path to Jungkook. Recently, a video of Sho Hirano went viral because of his striking resemblance to Jungkook.
Sho Hirano is the center and most famous member of the boy group King & Prince under the leading Japanese management company – Johnny’s Entertainment. He was born in 1997 and debuted as an idol when he was only 13 years old.
Just like Jungkook, Sho has a youthful and masculine appearance with big eyes, a radiant smile and a sharp jawline. However, one important feature that makes Sho a “clone” of Jungkook is that he also has a hot body but a baby face.
Besides, Sho is also the center with the most outstanding dancing skills in the group. In a few moments when Sho appeared with long and messy curtained hair, the idol looked surprisingly similar to Jungkook’s legendary sexy image 2 years ago.
Popularity wise, King & Prince is also a successful group in Japan, but Sho Hirano has an even greater appeal. He constantly stars in TV commercials, appears on fashion magazines and acts in many hit TV dramas and movies.
Sho is currently one of the most sought-after male idols in the Japanese entertainment industry, which puts him at a position that is probably equivalent to Jungkook in Korea. Not only are they the center of a popular boy group, but their looks also have many similarities. This is a case of “fate” between two idols who are supposed to have nothing in common.
