It is said that there are at least 7 lookalikes of a human being in the whole world. Let’s accept that all of us have wished to find our doppelganger at least once in our lifetime, and somewhere deep down, we still want to know where they are.
Good for Russian President that one of his 7 lookalikes has been located in China. Lo Yuanpin, 54, an ordinary farmer from China has become a local celebrity overnight due to his uncanny resemblance to Vladimir Putin.
Lo Yuanpin is from Anhui province where he is fondly called “Brother Putin”. He has been enjoying the attention quite a lot and hopes that it will bring some pleasant changes in his life, one of which is finding a wife as he is still a bachelor. He defines himself as a simple man in search of a bride.
The Chinese President Xi Jinping recently landed in Moscow to meet the Russian President Putin. This political event fueled Lo’s popularity in China. Though, a number of news portals have been covering Putin’s newly found doppelganger, he told Chinese news agencies,
Of course I am still a peasant working in a field. Nothing has changed much so far.
Lo has made plans to use his resemblance in a lucrative way. Though he has a simple wish to have a wife and a family, he is thinking of cashing in on his looks through a TV show. Elaborating upon his plans, he further informed,
I wish to have a wife and a family, and I am also thinking about giving up my job and launching my own show.
Lo’s broad forehead, high hairline and striking blue eyes have made people gasp out of surprise. What shocks them the most is his height i.e., 5’ 8” which is the same as Putin.
China enjoys a friendly relationship with Vladimir Putin, however, whether he knows about his Chinese lookalike or not is questionable.
