This Filipino ‘Jimin’ will make you look twice

BTS member Jimin has a doppelganger here in the Philippines, and fans of the k-pop boy band are all for it.

Cliff Ford Alvarez gained popularity among BTS fans over social media because of his uncanny likeness with Jimin. He even has the same colored hair as the BTS hottie and posts photos on his Instagram account with the same facial expression and style.


Here are more photos from his Instagram feed that will really make you do a double take:

His resemblance to Jimin was recognized in the K-pop Idol Look-a-like contest of the 10th Philippine KPop Convention last year.

Of course, nothing beats the original Jimin and his signature style, but Cliff makes for a really good stunt double, if ever Jimin will actually need one!
