This is a very familiar story. It seems that once in a while, an idol is on a show and the host says, “You look a lot like so-and-so”, the idol responds in a way fans and don’t like and suddenly they’re disrespectful. That’s the usual script and it’s no different in this case.
Model Kim Jin Kyung appeared on My Little Television recently. During her appearance, she was told that she resembles CL. The MC said, “Some people say you look like CL”. She immediately laughs and says, “What are you doing?” Quickly after she says that she says, “I really like her but…”
Fans watching the show immediately were divided. Some saying her response was reasonable while others joined on the bandwagon with the outraged Blackjacks. Comments on the Youtube video and Instagram ranged from, “She wished she looked like CL” “Who is she?”, “So rude!” “She needs to apologize”.

Personally, it just looks like to me, she’s kinda tired of hearing that. Check out the video below and see for yourself. Did she do anything wrong or are fans overreacting?
