We all know the fun of identical twins right? We’ve all seen The Parent Trap and thought it might be a fun, quirky thing to have a twin. But what happens when identical twin brothers marry identical twins sisters? Turns out it’s not just a fun romantic comedy with hilarious antics, but a legitimate problem of identifying who is married to whom.
Such is the crisis faced by brothers Zhao Xin and Zhao Xun (geez even their names sound similar) from Yungcheng city, Shaanxi province and sisters Yun Fei and Yun Yang, who live 10 km away in another village, Shaanxi Daily reports.
It’s not just family and friends who struggle to tell them all apart, even on their wedding days the couples had to double check who was who, to avoid marrying the wrong partner. In case you’re wondering, it’s Zhao Xun and Yun Fei, then Zhao Xin and Yun Yang. Got that? No? Neither does anybody else, apparently.
The turning point for their drastic decision to have plastic surgery stemmed from one of the brother’s accidentally holding the wrong wife’s hand while taking a stroll after dinner. So what to do? Plastic surgery with slight adjustments made to the face, obviously. Apparently, a hair cut, wearing different clothes or accessories couldn’t accomplish the same goal?
The whole irony of the situation is that the couples are having plastic surgery to just look different, unlike this lady who spent eight years trying to look exactly like Fan Bingbing.
