BANGKOK - A male beautician has been discovered in Kanchanaburi province who has a striking resemblance to the Korean pop sensation known as Psy.
How similar are they?
Pisanuwat Puang-ngern, the owner of a salon in tambon Pak Phraek, Muang district, has an uncanny likeness to the K-pop singer best known for the international smash video hit, Gangnam Style.
Mr Pisanuwat quit his bank job about a year ago to open the salon, which offers facial make-up services.
He said that he at first had no idea who Psy, or Park Jae-sang, was or even any interest in finding out. However, he started to hear more and more of the song and learned about its signature dance.
Local people, especially children, began calling him by the artist's name. Then people began asking him to perform the song with the accompanying moves.
He eventually decided to look it up on the internet, and when he saw the picture he had to admit that there are some physical similarities.
Mr Pisanuwat said he felt somewhat embarrassed at first, but now feels a little honoured that people think he looks like a world famous singer.
