He appears to be trending (yet again) this year, with some likening his good looks to popular Crash Landing on You actor Hyun Bin

Here's a side-by-side comparison:

According to Allkpop, some people commented, "I clicked on the post thinking how good-looking can he be, and wow, he's really good-looking," "If you decide to defect from North Korea and come to South Korea, I'll buy you food," "We need to unify Korea," and "He needs to defect to South Korea ASAP."

Meanwhile, others apparently likened the athlete on the left to Henry Lau, a Candian singer-songwriter based in South Korea and China.
