In the 9th episode of SBS weekend drama 'A Gentleman's Dignity' that aired on the 23rd of Jun revealed the uncanny resemblence in the way Colin (CNBLUE Lee Jong Hyun) and Kim Do Jin (Jang Dong Gun) speaks and raised a few eyebrows.
During the episode, there was a scene where Collin speaks to his mother Kim Eun Hee (Park Joo Mi), who he hasn't spoken to in a long while. Colin was speaking with a mix of Korean and Japanese while speaking to his mother on the phone.
Colin tells his mother, 'Of course I left home. I was thinking about rebelling if it's not that late. You already know where I am, I'm in Korea. I like Korea. Mom, why did you leave a place like this? I'm obviously alive and well if I'm calling you like this. Is that why you put a hold on my credit card?' in Japanese.

Also, Colin says in Korean, 'If you don't cancel the hold on my credit card, there are some people I need to go see. Four people. I think you know them better than I do. I guess we have an agreement then.'
The tone and the words he chose is exactly the way Kim Do Jin speaks when making an agreement. Soon after, Colin sees Kim Do Jin and Lim Tae San (Kim Soo Ro) and stares into the photo of his mother sitting next to Kim Do Jin, Choi Yoon (Kim Min Jong), Lim Tae San, and Lee Jung Rok (Lee Jong Hyuk).
Colin has already figured out that one of the four men is is father. In this episode however, the similarity in the way Colin and Kim Do Jin speak raised some serious questions regarding their relationship.
Internet users responded with comments like, "Is Lee Jong Hyun Jang Dong Gun's son? Does that mean that Park Joo Mi and Kim Ha Neul are going to be rivals?", "I hope Lee Jong Hyun is not Jang Dong Gun's son, I hope he's not anybody's son", "I hope the story doesn't get too complicated. I want the story to end happily."
