“Ulzzang” turned actress, Goo Hyesun (25) and SNSD’s Yoona’s (19) faces have been analyzed as to having a “Grandmother Image” and netizens have begun with their criticism.
On the 13th, the media said, “Goo Hyesun and Yoona have similar faces” and “They both have somewhat pursed lips and when they talk, at the first glance, you are aware of a grandmother impression.” They also said, “With their fateful wrinkles, skin, and thin jawbones, they really resemble the image of an old woman.”
After the release of this news, the netizens’ reactions were divided over. Some of the contents were agreeable, but to compare two young stars with grandmothers was uncalled for.
Some netizens say, “It wasn’t only me who thought they resembled grandmothers. When Goo Hyesun talks while she eats, you can really associate her with an old lady.” Others say, “They feel like grandmothers” and have agreed with the news report. Some others say, “Yoona is only 20 years old. If you call her a grandma, don’t you think she’ll be hurt?”
The fans of both stars have also started forming their own opinions. “How dare you compare Koo Goddess (Goo Hyesun) with Yoona? It makes no sense” and “How do you see Yoona as a grandma? There’s nothing similar about these two people” and many people are posting on the Internet to defend the two stars.
Also, netizens have been posting witty comments such as “If my grandma looked like that, I would be spending the rest of my life filming ‘The Way to Home'” and “Are grandmothers ulzzangs?” Another comment that gave laughter was “Even if people say they look like grandmas, if they look the way they do, they won’t have any wishes.”

Yoona and Goo Hyesun resemble grandmothers?! Are you kidding meh?
-_- Netizens can be sooo funny at times.
Netizens are so crazy.
But I do agree that these 2 look alike.
lol grandmas. oh netizens make me laugh.
i love goo hyesun..or maybe i just loved her BOF character, anyway i dont really see the similarities but hey, i never see the things that everyone else sees so..
loool i actually do see the grandma quality in these girls but thats ok, they’re still very pretty!
Yoona fans said:
I disagree Netizens criticism about yoona like grandmother, this make me feel anger! >.<
.haii! weiii hahaha..lOve YoOnA in Girls’ Generation!..Oh?,
Ku Hye Sun in Boys Over Flowers!?…hehehe…funny…any.. anyong!..
@Meijin – Your comments makes no sense. Lol.
Anyway, I do get what these netizens are implying on the above 2 girls.
The grandma-like characteristics of them which mostly shows when they smile — because their wrinkles at their cheeks expands (more than others and i don’t know why) which results in the ‘crumpling of skin’ which makes them looks like aging grandma.
I’ve watched both Cinderella Man (Yoona) and of course, the one everybody knows, Boys Over Flowers (Goo Hye Sun) and in several scenes when they smile overly wide — there comes their wrinkle-like-smile which makes them ‘grandma-looking’ like what netizens are claiming.
But oh well, aside from their ‘more-wrinkled-skin-when-they-smile’, their skins are almost flawless — especially Goo Hye Sun’s.
Those who’ve noticed her skin clearly should get what I mean, fair, smooth and almost clear — almost every girls’ dream skin.
Both of them have their attractive sides resulting in their rising popularity.
They’re more to the cute side, a different kinda’ attractiveness from BoA and HyoRi, the sexy queens of Korea.
i love both yoona and goo hye sun! so much!! I CAN SAY THEY RELLY LOOK ALIKE . BUT! THEY DO NOT LOOK LIKE GRANDMOTHERS. THERE SO GORGEOUS I THINK IM STARTNG TO BE A LESBIAN COZ OF THEM!! BHAHAHAHA LOOOOOLL
