Because fourcorners asked me a long time ago.

According to a face recognition/consequent celebrity matching tool I found online, I look like a mashed up version of the following people:

1. BoA
2. Kim Hee-Sun
3. Lee Hyori
4. Tomiko Van

I have no idea who any of these people are, except I know that one of my co-workers has a crush on BoA.  It'd be odd if he had a crush on me too.
Well, I would dismiss that idea as presumptuous and arrogant, but I don't know, it may be a dreadful possibility.

Anyway here are some pictures.  I matched a couple male pictures--but they were unattractive 'men'  with long hair.  They only came up once each so I haven't posted them.  The other women did not look like me very much, except in one or maybe two features.

You can't tell in this picture, but her nose is more prominent than mine.  I picked this one for the little resemblance it had to me otherwise--same general features, same preference for the long hair to frame the face.  My hair is not dyed, but it's not black either.  Dark brown with some faint natural blonde/red highlights.

I've a thicker nose, shorter legs, smaller bellybutton, my body doesn't look like that anymore--why did the computer throw up her face so many times as a match?  I have no idea.  But you readers may gawk at her all you like.

I picked a still and stoic portrait of her because she's got cheeks and cheekbone when she smiles.  I don't have quite so much happy flesh/muscle tone from smiling.  It has something to do with how her orthodontist is different from mine, and hers took face shape into consideration when designing her braces and retainers.  How do I know she's part of the orthodenture community?  I assumed.

Notice all the Korean faces.  I am not Korean.  This image matcher is odd.
BoA came up most often as the 'best match' for various pictures of my face.  Don't look at her when she smiles--she's got this weird crinkly thing going on.  I don't do that.  Mix her smile and Kim-Hee Sun's, and you've something roughly like mine.  I don't have the chin cleft going on either, but most of the face features are similar enough.

That's what I look like.  A mashed up version of all these women together, Westernized and agnostic.  I am not nearly as Asian as any of these women, at least in mannerism/speech/probably thought.  As any of you readers would know if you've read anything at all in my journal.

What is your exact heritage?

Half Vietnamese, half Chinese. Full Asian, if you're talking about genes.
