During my entire freshman year in college, I kept getting comments everywhere that I look like Bea Saw
from Pinoy Big Brother
. I was not familiar with her nor any local celebrities since I don't watch local television, so I googled her up out of curiosity. I got a bit offended because I actually think I'm the better-looking between the two of us, and the only similarity is that we share the same chinky eyes since we're both Chinese (except that mine's bigger due to my double eyelids, and hers look like slits because she's monolid).
However, when I got into sophomore year, I was being told by my new block mates that I look like Kim Chiu
. Again, I wasn't familiar with the celebrity, so I looked her up, and was left being disappointed again. When she still a newbie in the entertainment industry, she looked like an above-average Chinese, but I can still say that I'm more gorgeous than her.
I noticed that my school mates are just comparing me to whoever is the latest local Chinese celebrity who recently rose to fame. But I'm glad that I don't really look like those two (and I know in my heart I don't).
Then during my junior year (and up to the present), my close friend, who is also into K-Pop, has been telling me that I look
really similar to Jessica Jung
of SoNyeoShiDae/SNSD or Girls' Generation/GG
especially when I smile without showing my teeth, which I don't normally do. At first, I was aghast and offended (and to think she was my least favorite idol) - I used to hate Jessica with every fiber of my being because she was once affiliated with Lee Donghae of Super Junior, who is (and still is) my biggest crush in K-Pop.
But after 4 years, I came to like her because I realized that she looks like a high-maintenance and stuck up ice princess, and I like that image since most people usually think of me that way anyway.
