I do, but I am afraid to admit that because people would accuse me of racism, but some people just seriously look alike.

When first getting into a group, I sometimes have to work out who is who.

But after a short while I don't really mistake members.

Oof yeah, I don't want people to think it's racism either since for me it applies to people of all races so I feel like I need to lead it up with a disclaimer :jisoosmh:

I also have problems with eyes and when people have similar hairstyles and are similarly built, it just doesn´t matter whether they are white, black, yellow, pink or green, I just really can´t tell them apart. but we all know how it goes in the kpop community. I´m glad I´m understood :D.

I'm east asian n i hv trouble telling apart members of groups tat i dont stan sometimes. Even tho ITZY's ryujin n yuna dont look alike, i cant tell sometimes who is who cos of not paying attention to their differences. I might be getting better at it with having to pay attention now cos of reasons, tho...

Otoh, many SONEs hv historically difficulty telling apart the so-called triplets cos of their similarity n the sheer number (9) of members, angles n hairstyles(?), face shapes from way back in history(2007 onwards); i too found it hard to tell apart when i started stanning SNSD in 2018, watching/looking at videos/pix from 2007-2018. It got easier the l8r the era cos they grew differently, hair styles, face shapes n fashion styling. The triplets? Yuri, YoonA n Seohyun. Even now if i come across them from olden times, sometime i only recognise them cos i memorised their appearance n not becos its obvious. If tat makes any sense. So yeah, its hard to tell certain idols apart. Its partly familiarity n experience. Idk how to explain it any better than tat.

I actually confused Tae and Jessica for a time also early on. Especially since both were always singing key parts.

To vikki's point many many groups have girls i have to look twice at because from certain angles the girls look similar.

I nvr had trouble telling apart tae n sica, cos it was obvious to me who was who. But wat tripped me was when the triplets were side by side performing or the camera was on one of them but the angle or a portion of them was obscured smh or sth, they wore similar outfits or the angle showed them in a way that dint make it clear, again it was only by memorisation i could tell them apart in those situations, however it might be unclear now if i went n found those same ambiguous scenes now whether i recognise-recongnise them or if its tat memorisation tat occurred earlier at play.familiarity n experience still playing its part, LOL.

Not now unless I'm new to the group, but there was one teaser of EXO's back in pre-debut era where it took me a while to figure out Sehun and Luhan.

I had much trouble to tell apart Dreamcatcher members for quite a long time. I never had problems with PassCode members and I learned NEO JAPONISM ones quickly. I'm still in the process of learning Kolokol members.

Not really, if they're far away then sometimes yes or if their styling takes a drastic turn. But most of the time I can recognize them, sometimes I think I can recognize some idols (male idols) too good because if they're in a crowd I can sometimes recognize them by just looking at the back of their heads. :lisalaugh:
