Markie Baldemor becomes viral star as Calum Hood of the Philippines

Markie Baldemor De Lara becomes the latest internet star (lemme say that once again: latest cutie internet star) when photos of him went viral online, as netizens dubbed him as the Calum Hood of the Philippines.

As I blog this, the hashtag #CALUMNGPINAS is still trending on Twitter at #1 spot.

Calum Hood is one of the members of the Aussie boy band 5 Seconds of Summer (5SOS), who in late August last year had this Snapchat video scandal showing off his "you know". But Markie Baldemor isn't trending now because of that. It's because he kinda looks like the Aussie guy.

Looking at his pictures, Markie certainly is Calum's "kalokalike", especially on side view.

In his Facebook account (we're already friends haha!), it's stated there that he's from San Jose del Monte, Bulacan, a BS Tourism Management student at the Polytechnic University of the Philippines (PUP) and that he is a "Tenor at PUP Bagong Himig Serenata".

Markie is already well aware that he's setting Twitter on fire right now as Calum's Pinoy version. In his FB as well as in his Twitter account, he said he can't believe he's trending at #1 on Twitter and is still trying to convince himself if he really looks like Calum of 5SoS.
