I’m usually not one for comparisons or “castings” between 2D characters and actors, but this Korean singer Jung Joon Young (정준영) and Mabuchi Kou are the same person. I was flipping channels and started watching a show called 1 night 2 days on tv the other day, which features Jung Joon Yung as a cast member, and was so taken aback by him because he looks like he just walked out of Ao Haru Ride!
I think it’s the upturned eyes and really distinct double-eyelids? The pictures I found through a quick search on my phone really don’t do the resemblance justice. But actually though, I just can’t get the image out of my head!
