This isn’t the first time that an actress’s image was Photoshopped in different situations. A few months back, Dimples Romana’s character Daniela Mondragon from the show Kadenang Ginto was shown to walk the street wearing a red dress and pulling a matching red luggage in a trailer for their new season. Netizens took the image and the meme “Daniela Mondragon walks everywhere” was created.

There has been no reaction yet from Kim regarding the meme but we hope that she, along with who designed her gown, would be a good sport regarding the said images.
