If anyone offered to make a life-like replica of me, whether life-sized, doll-sized, or robot-sized, I would scream and run the other direction. Never been a fan of human fascimiles in any form or shape and that includes the popular wax figure attractions that make up the Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum tourist attraction. When news broke this week that popular K-actor Kim Soo Hyun was getting measured for his own wax replica, it made me go take a look at some of his Korean predecessors who have already been “gifted” with their own wax mini-me.
The result is not pretty, people. Before Kim Soo Hyun there have been Lee Min Ho, Song Seung Heon, and Kim Hyun Joong, all of whom have freaky looking wax look alikes out there in this world weirding people out. Sure Kim Soo Hyun’s wax figure for Madame Tussauds could turn out nearly identical and possessing a sheen of animation, but more likely it’ll end look looking pasty and awkward. Don’t believe me, check out with your own eyes the hilariously bad completed wax figures below and start worrying for Kim Soo Hyun.
