Jo Kwon looks like a comic character?
A manhwa (or Korean comic) character that resembles 2AM member, and currently soloist, Jo Kwon has been evoking laughters.
On the July 12th broadcast of KBS‘s ‘Happy Together 3′, Jo Kwon, 2PM‘s Wooyoung, SISTAR‘s Dasom and Bora, Eun Ji Won, and M.I.B‘s Kangnam featured as guests on the show. During the episode, comedian Huh Kyung Hwan revealed to the cast members and guests alike, “Jo Kwon actually appears inside a manhwa,” before pulling out a picture to prove his point.
In the picture, a manhwa character portrays an attitude that resembles Jo Kwon’s whenever the idol transforms into his ‘Kkab Kwon’ self. Although the drawing is a bit of an exaggeration, the character’s sassy glare and disgusted expression are similar to Jo Kwon’s diva looks.
Netizens who have seen the episode have expressed their awe and amusement, commenting, “This is seriously daebak (awesome),” “But where did they find that manhwa character?,” “The resemblance between Jo Kwon and the manhwa character is seriously 200%,” and, “Whether Jo Kwon resembles the manhwa character, or the manhwa character resembles Jo Kwon, it’s funny.”
