13 Korean celebrities who have admitted to plastic surgery
Plastic surgery is so common in Korea that people don't feel socially ashamed to admit to it anymore. Even celebrities, whose beautiful looks are adored, aren't afraid to say in public that their looks have been enhanced through plastic surgery. Some celebrities loved their new look, while others regret having done it. We have 13 actors and K-pop idols who've openly talked about their surgeries on air. Take a look!
My Beautiful Bride actress Lee Si Young had multiple surgeries done 10 years ago and says she naturally thinks of her current face as hers. "When I first talked about it, lots of news articles were published (about my plastic surgeries)," she said. When asked her reason for talking about it, she said, "Because I totally look like I've had surgeries done," adding there's no reason to hide it because everyone who sees her old pictures knows.

Last month, when a colleague commented her eyes look tired and jokingly added if she's had her eyes done, she said, "You're right, I nipped my eyes."

The hosts refuted "Isn't that what all celebrities say all the time?" and she said, "(My face) looked better before I touched it," adding she's had a surgery done.
She elaborated that she's had the tip of her nose done twice, stressing she's always had a tall nose bridge, "The nose tip became too sharp, unlike what I expected, so I had another operation lowering it," She said, "I don't recommend plastic surgery.

Talented actress Shin Eun Kyung had her jaw done. The jaw surgery could be life threatening and therefore isn't really affordable.
