Nancy (낸시) is the maknae, or the youngest member, of the K-Pop group Momoland. She is also considered the official ‘visual’ of the group. This shouldn’t come as much of a surprise when you see Nancy because she is the cutest of the bunch.
Here are the basic facts about her, care of the KProfiles page on Momoland:
Nancy’s birth name is Nancy Jewel Mcdonie (낸시맥도니); her father is American and her mother is Korean. Her Korean name is Lee Sueng Ri (이승리). She was born in 2000, making her only 18 years old. She recently graduated from HanLim Art School with fellow Momoland member, JooE.
She was born in South Korea but spent her childhood in Ohio, United States. Because of this, she’s fluent in both English and Korean. Before winning the reality survival show Finding Momoland, she was already in touch with the entertainment industry. In 2011, she was part of a hip-hop group called Cutie Pies that audition for Korea’s Got Talent and made it to the semi-finals. According to this Kpop Wiki, she also appeared in some TV programs when she was a younger teen.
Here she is when she was with Cutie Pies:
And here she is now:
Momoland recently visited the Philippines as part of a private event at one of the casinos in Manila, the capital city. A few months before the visit, fans in the Philippines were starting to call attention to what they thought to be a striking resemblance between Nancy and Filipina actress, Liza Soberano. In a video that Nancy posted on Facebook with Daisy and Ahin, even Nancy herself somewhat acknowledges that there is a similarity.
Take a look at some of the side-by-side comparisons below, and the video she posted reacting to it:
Are you guys familiar with filipina actress Liza Soberano? Many say that Liza & Nancy do look a like. Since many fil. mentioned that when they do facebook live, they searched photos. Even Daisy agreed Nancy really looks similar to Liza. #Momoland #Nancy #모모랜드 #낸시

While we can agree that they do look a bit similar in some photos (Liza Soberano is just obviously tanner), there’s just something uniquely…Nancy. Take a look at some more of her pictures below:
