Back to the K-pop realm, there’s no denying that some K-pop idols can just pull off as the fashion doll. HallyuSG takes you through five K-pop idols that look just like real-life Barbies.
1. Jeon Somi
One idol known to look like a Barbie doll is none other than Jeon Somi.
Now a soloist, Jeon previously participated in two survival shows, SIXTEEN and Produce 101. She ranked first in the latter. She later made her official debut in the now-defunct girl group I.O.I.
Her visuals are definitely doll-like. And she looks like just like a Barbie doll, especially when her hair is dyed blonde.
2. Blackpink’s Lisa
The all-rounded star is also Celine’s first official ambassador, a testament to her charm and appeal. Her doe eyes, along with bangs have also made her look like a real-life Barbie doll.
This is especially so after the release of her song, Weekend (2023), where she was seen sporting a pink preppy aesthetic. She also had blonde and pink hair in the music video.
4. Red Velvet’s Irene
Her soft feature, alongside her cool and chic vibe, has her looking like a Barbie princess. Even amongst other K-pop idols, she is well-known for her dazzling visuals.
Last but definitely not least, we have soloist IU looking just like a real-life Barbie.
Her innocent gaze and button nose have not only enhanced her girl-next-door image, but she also gained traction for looking like a doll.
Especially when IU played hotel owner Jang Man-wol, where her fancy outfits and intricate hairstyles really showed her striking resemblance to a Barbie doll.
