A young fried chicken seller at a market in Samut Prakan is gaining attention after people commented on her resemblance to Lalisa "Lisa" Manobal of the K-pop group Blackpink.

The Bangkok Post went to Wat Asokaram market and talked with the mother of 17-year-old Kulthida, known as Yeehwa, who is said to look like Lisa.

She said Yeehwa had just gone back to Phichit, where she was a Matthayom 5 student at Taphanhin School. She visits Samut Prakan during school breaks.

The mother said while Yeehwa was helping out, selling fried chicken at the market, many people commented on what they saw as her resemblance to Lisa. This quickly spread on social media.

Yeehwa was shy, a little embarrassed by the attention, but told the Bangkok Post she was interested in the entertainment field and took part in some activities at school.

"I'm happy and excited to resemble an admired singer like Lisa," Yeehwa said in a video call.
