The original video from Cassie, the girl featured in the video, has been liked for more than 40,000 as of writing, while the fan who captioned the video (“Nadine Bernardo is shaking”) had similarly tens of thousands of likes from Twitter users.
Comparisons between contemporaries Kathryn and Nadine are in fact nothing new.
Their supposed physical similarities were first noticed by fans when the latter had her showbiz breakthrough in 2014 via “Diary ng Panget”. At the time, the two would be asked in respective interviews about being compared to each other, with both agreeing that they have no problem with it and rather found the comparisons flattering.
