While her beauty was no question, netizens began to compare her to a veteran actress and her most famous role to date. She looked just like Kim So Yeon as Cheon Seo Jin in Penthouse!


Kim So Yeon had to wear many ball gowns for her role as the opera singer, Cheon Seo Jin. Her hair was also frequently bunned up, just like Karina’s.


Do you see the resemblance? Kim So Yeon’s sharp jawline and the bountiful jewels probably help.
