Singer-actress Lee Jihye has long stopped being active as part of an idol group, Sharp. Although she is already 40 years old this year, the singer still looks as youthful as ever! Her recent haircut drew attention for how young it made her look, and for turning her into Girls’ Generation Taeyeon‘s doppelgänger!
