2023-11-08

South Korea is known for its flourishing K-pop culture and innovative K-dramas. As a result, it should come as no surprise that many celebrities have undergone cosmetic surgery to achieve their stunning appearances.

Even in South Korea, the plastic surgery capital of the world, celebrities are reluctant to admit they've undergone surgery. Only a few people have outwardly revealed their cosmetic procedures, proudly detailing what they've done and encouraging others to have more self-confidence. The following is a list of ten Korean celebrities, including K-pop and K-drama stars who have admitted to having plastic surgery.


1. Park Min Young

Old school pictures of Park Min Young appeared online when she was receiving attention for her role in the Sungkyunkwan Scandal, which made internet users believe that she had undergone plastic surgery. The actress decided to disclose that she had truly had surgery as a result of this. The actress revealed to Sports Chosun that she had her nose fixed since it was crooked and that she had double eyelid surgery done in junior high school. “I don’t think it's a bad idea to truthfully state something as is. The past is important, but I hope people focus more on the current actress Park Min Young,” she stated.

It appeared for three months and then vanished. "I feel like I was duped." She admitted that she had the procedure done while she was in ninth school because her nose was "too flat."

 JooE didn't expect to pass an audition for an entertainment agency, so she didn't inform them she had plastic surgery when they asked—"I thought I would never see them again, why would I tell them I had plastic surgery?" JooE knew she had to come clean when she made it and was urged by the CEO to get nose fillers.
