I’m Married to a Korean Celebrity

It is no secret that I was not attracted to J when we first met. Even when we were friends, I would often wonder why other girls found him attractive.

(And in case you’re feeling sorry for him, don’t be. He is well aware of this story and likes to remind people that despite all this, he still managed to snag me. 🙄  Besides, his ego is big enough as it is.)

In fact, his pretty boy features are not my type at all. However, I know that this is — and has been for the past decade or so — what’s all the rage in Asia.

We’ve even been informed a few times that he looks like an Asian celebrity. On one occasion, a waitress at a Korean restaurant actually asked me if he were someone famous!

I remember a friend telling us that J reminded her of the Korean actor Youn Sang Hyun. I didn’t think much of this until last night, when I was going through the pictures from Aerin’s dol…

When J had styled his hair down instead of high and spiked as he usually does…

And then I saw it.

They would never be mistaken for twins, but you can’t deny that there isn’t a resemblance.

The best part? When J switched his Facebook profile picture to the one of Youn Sang Hyun above, no one batted an eye. And when he finally pointed it out, one person confessed that he thought it really was J…and that this picture was a glamour shot or something similar.

I wish I too, looked like a celebrity, but the only one that I’ve been told I look like (and on two occasions, by different people) is an Asian porn star. 😥  And no, I won’t give away her name — you can figure it out yourself if you’re that curious.

    HA! Yep I definitely see it. And your husband is adorbs. Jeff is always getting told he looks like James Spader… and had the same experience when he changed his FB picture during that “doppleganger week” or whatever that went around the other year. Too funny!

    You know what? I wasn’t attracted to my fiance initially, either. Our relationship has always been based on more of a friendship/cerebral bond.
