Shirota Yu was mistaken for Ikuta Toma?

On March 15th, Shirota Yu revealed via his Twitter that he was mistaken for Ikuta Toma.

Shirota tweeted, “Me, walking with sunglasses on→ Mother and the daughter walking toward me from the front→ We pass each other→ The daughter : ‘Mom! We just passed Ikuta Toma!!’→ Me : ‘…@ ‘ェ’ @ ‘” He ended the tweet with, “Nice to meet you! My name is Shirota Yu!!”

This was retweeted over 5,000 times, and many voiced their thoughts, writing comments like, “they kind of look alike”, and “how would people mistake Shirota Yu with Ikuta Toma?”.

Do you think they look alike?

probably the hairstyle and Toma kinda look like mix lol but Shirota is too big to be mistaken as Toma xD

I agree it was the nose!

bec few years ago my sister and I got confused between the two actors too. We thought it was Shirota Yu who was in HanaDan. We just later on found out that it was Ikuta Toma XD

lmao i kind of get it? shirota's way taller though, plus he's got more of a potato nose, while ikuta has a hook nose.

Probably the nose

I'm a fan of both and even I sometimes mistake in the first half a second when I see a pic of them. XD

It makes me wonder how old the daughter was lol if she was kinda young like under 13 I could totally understand especially with the sunglasses on. It's gotta be the nose.

lol, no i don't think they look alike at all! not enough to get them confused anyway. not even the nose! but i'm a huge toma fan, so i don't *think* i'd ever confuse them, lol.

It's def the nose , I can understand why people would think that if he had on glasses

but imo Shirota Yu looks like a pure white boy

Ew, no. Ikuta Toma's way more attractive than Shirota Yu.

Oddly enough, Kiriyama Ren was mistakened for being Ikuta Toma twice lol. And eventually, he felt bad breaking the girls dreams and pretended to be Ikuta Toma and shook her hand haha. So adorable.

But Shirota Yu's too big in comparison though. But he's still hot regardless so I would have still been happy if I were one of the girls lol.

Shirota yu with sunglasses WILL look like Toma xDD

But if he didn't have his glasses on, he doesn't look like him. :/

Its weird~~. I mean they do have some distinct features, like their noses, which looks similar.

Must be the nose, I'm sure lol Poor boy *pats*
kate_firefly 17th-Mar-2013 06:52 pm (UTC)
they do look similar sometimes. because of the nose and lips, i think. xD
stole_away 18th-Mar-2013 04:15 am (UTC)
