What sorcery is this?
Netizens were shocked by the stunning resemblance of Janus Del Prado to another popular actor when he posted a photo on Instagram.
The post, captioned ‘gagong gupit’ [silly haircut] has a page of comments; with many saying he looks a lot like ‘John Lloyd Cruz,’ and if not, ‘Popoy’ (from famed Popoy and Basha movie One More Chance.)
Indeed! At first glance he really look a lot like John Lloyd, but to help us get our trust back to our eyes, here’s a comparison. Can you spot who is who?
Still confused? Well, whoever is who, both of them, for sure, are good-looking, and both are good actors, too!
Janus became controversial May 2017 when he ranted about his irritation over a young actor (with initials ‘N.A.’) who allegedly disrespected him.
