Lookalikes 11: Hong Nam-ki and James McCormack look like Ban Ki-moon and John McCain

Korean finance minister Hong Nam-ki looks a bit like former UN head Ban Ki-moon, and head of Sovereign and Supranational Ratings at Fitch Ratings James McCormack looks a bit like former senator John McCain. At least when  you glance at the two of them together. I honestly thought that's who was in the photo when I saw the thumbnail.

I agree that when I put them side to side the difference is only superficial. But it could've fooled me at least at first glance. The whole reason I clicked through to this story was some half crazy idea of "wow I never knew they met" but of course they didn't. Or did they?
