f(x)’s Sulli recently attracted a lot of attention after a picture of Korean geisha Lee Nan Hyang (1900-1979), who was born a hundred years ago, was released.
The picture was uploaded on an online community board under the title of “Korean geisha Lee Nan Hyang who was born at the end of the Joseon Dynasty.” She was a very popular woman at the time for her pretty face and singing ability.
When she became one of the most popular geisha, she married to a newspaper reporter and became a housewife. However, she was so enthusiastic about singing that she received a song from Ha Gyu Il, a popular composer at the time. With the enthusiasm, she recorded the first album with the songs she received from Ha. What attracts the most attention from people is that she resembles Sulli.
Both have big eyes, drooped eyelids, small lips, sharp nose, and milky-white skin.
People who saw the picture responded: “Sulli and Lee Nan Hyan really look alike.”“Isn’t a picture of Sulli superimposed on the picture?” “Is Sulli reincarnated as Lee Nan Hyang?” “I was so surprised by the picture.”
