Last week, we witnessed our favorite K-idols graduate from Philippine universities. This week, we’re seeing a resurgence of an old trend; our social media feeds have been riddled with edits done via the viral FaceApp. Last year, the app took the internet by storm as people tried to see what they would look like when they’re 80. Now, people are trying to see what they would look like if they’re the opposite gender, online privacy be damned. Of course, our favorite idols and celebrities have no escape from this! Just when we think they’re already oozing with visuals, check out what they would look like if they would be of the opposite gender:
Lil did i know that Sment already released teaser photos for their new girl group!!!!

New girl group, who this? What could be the concept of their first comeback? Looks like SM Entertainment’s Red Velvet and SNSD/Girls’ Generation aren’t the only female groups in the company! Fanboys will be screaming so hard for them.
GUYS BAKIT PARANG SI CARMINA VILLAROEL NA ITO. HAHAHAHA. pic.twitter.com/nR6knPyq3N

Bonus: this edit of EXO Sehun just looks like he’s Filipina actress Carmina Villaroel. I think he’ll pass as a member of the Legazpis in the next Selecta ice cream commercial.
Here’s a K-drama concept a la The King: Eternal Monarch: male leading men travel to a parallel universe to find their counterparts. The twist is, they’re the opposite gender but they look exactly the same. Pwede ba yun, please?
The way even bts’s girl version is still prettier than me 😭 pic.twitter.com/wGqtZdJXwk

Even ARMYs want to see how their boys would look like as female idols. One thing’s for sure: they’re STUNNING. I mean look at Seokjin. Ma’am, the visuals???
Seventeen as female/girl versions

“Say the name, SEVENTEEN!” But these girls would make you forget your name. Vernon looks like a girl group’s visual whom everyone thinks is sassy and mataray AF but she’s actually a big softie inside.

Getting into NCT as a new fan can be a bit challenging because they have a staggering 21 members. Don’t worry though, they’re separated into sub-units so getting to know them wouldn’t be that difficult. But imagine a girl group with 21 members — the power! Click on the tweet to see the thread of all 21 members as their female counterparts. Sana all ganyan kaganda!

A thread of Day6 as the next Korean rock band — how cool is that, though? Alexa play “You Were Beautiful/예뻤어” because these band members’ visuals are something you can’t easily move on from. It’s actually a breakup song but who cares, right?
I tried the face app with Mayor Vico’s picture and ang ganda ni Mayor HAHAHAHHAHA pic.twitter.com/NbRiLweZ7d

There have been edits on Pinoy politicians and of course, walang ligtas ang favorite mayor natin! Honestly, this girl version looks exactly like his mom, Coney Reyes.

This one is just too funny not to share! Looks like the Ben&Ben vocalist doesn’t need the app anymore because well, the long hair has become their brand. But some fans tried to make edits of the twins with short hair and in another universe, Miguel probably looks like this:
hala ito ba yung original? 😯 pic.twitter.com/I26c5OjrXQ

Have you tried making versions for yourself and did you look like your mom or dad?
