Someone asked this question:
This was the reply they got:
I'd translate the whole thing as:
Recently, a man told me: "I watched a commercial and the genetics of your face are the same as Horikita Maki's!! If you work hard on your make-up you can make it where she is". That's a compliment, right?
I told him: "I am thankful for what you said, but I don't look like her at all", but he replied that our genetics are the same...
I don't think it's very important, but please answer.
That's definitely a great compliment. That's because she's a byword for "cute". How many men cried after marrying? It's the object of admiration of women.
I'm confused whether I'm right because the person who answered doesn't seem to separate their sentences and I can't find anything about "どれほどいたか". I found a text in which it seemed to mean "how many people were there?", but in this case it's written as an embedded question.
With the way I translated, I imagine 'the man who cried" that the person who answered refered to is Horikita Maki's husband. The question was posted in 2015 and Horikita Maki married that year.
I have no idea if he cried at the wedding, but that is the only way to translate that I could think of.
Obviously, my difficulties lie mainly in the reply, but I decided to include the question to provide context.
