Taiwanese singer Cyndi Wang, 39, has seen her popularity surge ever since she joined the hugely popular Chinese talent competition Sisters Who Make Waves 3. 

Her newfound fame has also rubbed off on her Smiling Pasta co-star, 40-year-old Malaysian singer Nicholas Teo, who became a trending topic on Weibo simply because of his association with Cyndi.

Now everyone wants a bit of the Cyndi-effect.

Last Friday (Jun 3), a Chinese netizen with the Weibo handle “Kayle Huang Tian” posted a pic of himself and a friend looking very much like Cyndi and Nicholas in the poster of their 2006 idol drama.

Dragon Boat Festival joke: I look like Nicholas Teo, and I have a friend who looks like Cyndi Wang,” he wrote.

The similarities, if we're being truly honest, are uncanny. 

See the similarities?

While some netizens questioned if the photo was a deepfake, most could not get over how similar they look.

There were comments like "Even the way the corners of their mouths curve upward is exactly the same", "If I didn't look closely, I would have thought it was an AI (artificial intelligence) face swap", and “The [person] in the above pic looks more like Cyndi than Cyndi herself in the pic below".

There were also netizens who joked that Kayle and his friend should star in the sequel of Smiling Pasta.

The viral post, which has since garnered more than 120,000 likes and 1,800 shares, made it to Weibo’s hot search. Even Nicholas and Cyndi liked the post.

Kayle was so excited that he announced on Weibo yesterday (Jun 5) that he has “reached the pinnacle of becoming a fanboy of Cyndi Wang”.
