They weren’t sure if it was Joy or Irene from looking at the side profile.

What made the post go particularly viral is the fact that Irene and Joy aren’t known to look that much alike.

And to some fans’ surprise, the member in the photos is none other than Irene.

If Irene hadn’t posted multiple Prada shots on her Instagram page, perhaps fans would’ve been confused for a little bit longer.

Some of the fans’ comments include “They look really similar in that photo“, “If you glance at it, it looks like Joy, but if you zoom in, it looks like Irene“, and “I thought that was Joy“.
