Xhyniie has been a K-Pop fan since 2010 and a K-drama fan since 2000. She enjoys writing about the Korean entertainment industry.
South Korea is known for being image-conscious and beauty-focused. Attention to physical appearance is so great that the country has been named the plastic surgery capital of the world.
Of course Korea is also known for its thriving K-Pop scene and additive K-dramas. It should be no surprise, then, to learn that many celebrities have gone under the knife in order to achieve their good looks.
Here are 10 South Korean celebrities who may have undergone plastic surgery.
10. Park Min Young
Park Min Young is an actress who rose to fame in the historical drama Sungkyunkwan Scandal. The star has confirmed that she had plastic surgery; she revealed that her mom allowed her to have eyelid surgery when she was in high school. She's also had cosmetic surgery on her nose; however, she has clarified that the reason she had the surgery was because of a broken nose sustained in an accident.
9. Park Bom
Park Bom is a member of the girl group 2NE1. She began her career in 2006 but debuted in 2009 as the main vocalist for 2NE1. It is said that she had a whole heap of procedures including at least two nose jobs, double eyelid surgery, facial reshaping, and very likely breast implants. It also looks like she has had lip fillers.
8. Yoo In Na
An established Korean actress and DJ, Yoo In Na rose to fame when she played the lead role in 2012 in the drama Queen and I. She joined the entertainment industry as an apprentice singer but later joined YG Entertainment as an aspiring actress.
Comparing photos from earlier in her career and now, it appears that the actress had had surgery on her eyes and jawline. Her eyes now appear larger, and her jaw is now sharper (it used to be round and flat).
Also known as Lee Joo Won, JooE is best known as the lead rapper and dancer of the girl group Momoland. She got her start as a contestant on the reality show Finding Momoland; she finished in fifth place which qualified her to become one of the band's members. As an idol, she has also served as brand ambassador for the Baker makeup line. In terms of physical enhancements, JooE is open with the fact that she had nose surgery during her first year of high school.
6. Kim Ye-Won
Best known as a member of the girl group Jewelry, Kim Ye-Won has confirmed that she had plastic surgery on her face. If we compare photos from earlier in her career and now, we can clearly see that her face looks thinner. According to her, her only cosmetic procedure was on her nose. She has confirmed that she also had ear surgery—but she says it was because of an infection and was meant to improve her hearing.
5. Hong Soo Ah
Hong Soo Ah is best known as an actress on the sitcom Nonstop. This doll-like actress admitted that she had double eyelid surgery and that the procedure had a big impact on the progress of her acting career. There are rumors that she's had other surgeries as well, but she has denied those rumors.
4. Jung Chae-yeon
Jung Chae-yeon is best known as a member of the girl group DIA. She also finished in seventh place on the show Produce 101, which made her a member of the group I.O.I. It has been revealed that this idol had nose surgery. If we look at the photos above, we can see that she used to have a flatter nose, whereas now her nose looks sharper and has a narrower bridge. There are rumors that she also had double eyelid surgery to make her eyes appear bigger; however, she has denied the charge.
Kim Yu-jin, better known by her stage name Uee, is a famous Korean actress and member of the girl group After School. Like many other celebrities, she is open about her cosmetic procedures, including double eyelid surgery. She once had narrower eyes, but the surgery made them larger.
Shin Dong-hee, better known by his stage name Shindong, is a rapper and performer. His most famous association is with the band Super Junior. Few members of Super Junior have admitted to having had plastic surgery, but Shindong has shared with his fans that he had double eyelid surgery. It is said that he did it because the president of his band's agency suggested that he have the procedure.
1. Jessica Jung
A former member of the girl group Girl's Generation, Jessica Jung was widely considered to be one of the group's most beautiful members. In addition, she is also known to the public as the sister of Krystal Jung, member of the girl group f(x).
If we look at the above photos, it seems likely that she had surgery to make her jaw smaller. It also appears that she had a nose job and double eyelid surgery.
