  1. Yau Chingmy 邱淑貞 was one of the rare beauties. It would be hard for her daughter to match up. Nevertheless, the daughter is beautiful, and hope she has her moms acting skills!

    1. Agree that Chingmy Yau looks prettier than her daughter but I recall there were rumours of her having plastic surgery on her chin to make it sharper. If that is true then her daughter would be considered a more attractive natural beauty.

  2. I mean, she’s better looking than me for sure, but better looking than her mom? Mm, nope. Good enough for celebrity halo? Mm subjective. We’re going to need to see more potential.

  3. Lol how we all think her mom is prettier. Doubt that most moms would want to hear that. She’s probably the prettiest 2nd gen celeb but in showbiz she’s just average looking.

    1. Lol….outwardly no mums wants to hear that…but inwardly, some will guiltily feel happy they are still the prettier at their age… But that is just a personal opinion, no intention to offend yours.
      I too find Ayla not great looking by Showbiz standards but I hope she has good entertainment skills to stay in the industry.

  4. Beauty doesn’t equal acting career; Idol dramas focus more on aesthetic than skill. Also she won’t be having much jobs cause priorities still given to local artist unless her contributions will create more news than project storyline. Korean netizens are harsher on foreigners especially with the mother’s credentials exceeding her own. Anyways it will just take a few years of her youth, if doesn’t work out she can always go home. Nothing venture nothing gain.
