I only object to surgery when it artificially inflates body parts into cartoon-like proportions. (See Anna Nicole Smith, Pamela Anderson...in their before and after shots!)Hopefully, this problem will stay contained to the United States and Europe and not infect the people in the east and Far East.

Not everything we do here in America is worth copying, kids. I cringe every time that hear hip hop, rap, punk and metal music infecting another part of the planet. :crazy:


i basically agree with you! though i'm not an american, proud to be filipino BTW. NOT everything from the west are good. some are really natural beauties. so no need for surgeries or anything...

Well, age and make-up ( as well as hair, teeth, etc.) can do wonders. Most of these look like school-age pictures, and not great ones at that. I wouldn't out-rule the idea of plastic surgery, but come on. Did any of us look even remotely good during adolescence? Chances are, unless you were a part of a microscopic minority, you didn't.But hey. It doesn't really matter :-)

I agree that plastic surgery isn't all bad. Yeah, it's just when it becomes over exaggerated that it really seems pointless. Or when people get every little annoyance fixed.

Some of them look like they just lost weight and like their features blended with age. However, some of them seem to have had surgery, especially on their eyes. Eye surgeries are cheap and fairly routine here in Korea.

Well at least it looks like Song Hye Kyo never went under the knife - Her facial features when she was young looks identical to that of when she had grown up.

And look at her passport photo. Who on earth can look that good in a passport picture?!

I guess we always have SHK to show the world you can be beautiful without undergoing surgery. :)

This before/after stuff is kind of a passtime with both Chinese and Korean audiences. Rule of thumb is that IF you go under the knife, do it before your debut.

It isn't so much that Koreans in particular or Asians in general are casual about plastic surgery -- it's just in Korean, there is a very strong emphasis on the face over other physical attributes. Custom used to go that a woman never leaves her house, even grandmums going to to the market, without putting on a pound of makeup, and in general Korean girls start applying the lipstick WAY before their other Asian peers. They're also extremely fashion conscious -- not in a wild, "alterna-than-thou clique" J-pop sort of way -- but in a "I also want my man to look like a GQ model" sort of way.

At least that was the environment at my high school. Koreans are "trained" to see flaws in the face in the way that Americans are, erm. trained to pick apart the overall physique of a man/woman.

If you're curious, here are some Before/After pics that I found.

Nose Jobs (according to the media aka PopSeoul):

Jeon Hye Bin
Image
Apparently she went under the knife after an "accident".

Park Shi Yeon
Image
Wow...

Kim Ah Joong
Image
Image
Some people say that those are photoshopped pictures and she is actually natural...but majority says "I always knew there was something wrong with her nose".

This is why I hate plastic surgery debates. I don't know what to believe anymore. And this has led to: I don't care anymore. Even if Song Hye Kyo wasn't a so-called "natural beauty" I'd still love and respect her.

Anyone else feel Kim Ah Joong looks the same even after surgery? I dunno, maybe I'm just being mean, but when I watched 200 pounds beauty I thought she looked weird before I even knew she had anything done.

i know why some of the actors had a LOT of changes.. BECAUSE IN KOREA,FASHION AND PHYSICAL FEATURES IS LIKE "ALMOST" EVERYTHING TO THEM. WHAT THEY CALL BEAUTIFUL HAS THESE FEATURES:
=WHITE COMPLEXION
=POINTED NOSE
=SLENDER/SLIM
=LONG LEGS
="BIG ROUND EYES"
=BEAUTIFUL HAIR

i just read this along time ago in some site but i actually don't remember what site it is..
so if you notice some of the "before" pictures has smaller eyes bcoz "eyelid surgery" is really popular in korea. but im not saying that the actresses that had smaller eyes before and now has bigger,had gone surgery. im not really sure..

Same thoughts here. Her own face looked very unnatural - maybe the teeth, nose or something is not right.
I can't believe LDH has plastic surgery - kinda disappointing to know if it's true even though I know it shouldn't mean anything as long as she's a good actress.

Btw, here are pictures of Sohn Taeyoung before/after...
She's really pretty now =_=

Yep I heard Jeon Hye Bin was involved in a car accident that left her needing facial reconstruction and that she doesn't like/recognise herself in the mirror. But this could be a rumor spread on the forums.

Out of interest is there any Korean actress that as had no plastic surgery?

I think most of them got rid of the fat on their faces... some of them had their nose job done

I never understood why famous people tried so hard to hide the fact that they had plastic surgery... whats the big deal anyway ? they are just normal people... and just like us, there can be some things that bother them ... so if plastic surgery helps them to feel good about themselves I dont see anything wrong in that....

Song Hye Kyo really looks so beautiful and cute even as a child - she's really lucky to be born a natural beauty. I wonder how the parents look like.

SHK spends quite a bit of time with her mom and I've seen serveral pix of her and her mom together. I can't seem to find any at the moment, but I'm sure if you look at SHK's soompi thread you'll find some. You'll probably need to sift through about 1000+ pages though :)

For the record, I don't think her mom looks too good and I have never seen her dad.

This goes to prove that parents who does not look beautiful/handsome CAN still have beautiful/handsome children and vice-versa..... Life is fair.

cutekid wrote:i think i have to agree with kobe23. people's faces changes on pictures or on camera depending on the lighting, angle, make-up and the clothing. also lets factor in the age.

they were young back then so they had baby fats as you age/mature you lose them and your face and body's contour changes too. just look at song hye kyo and jeon ji hyun's pictures when they were younger. its a little different on how they look now but its very minimal. because they lost some fats and they are matured.

we can't say that a person had surgery by comparing them with their younger picture, except when they look really, really, really different from them. it would be too obvious then.


yup! i agree with u. but one of them make plastic surgery.

Are you sure it's LEE DA HAE? her eyes are not the same.. I know for a fact that you can't have surgery with the form of your eyes.

I think the main thing I see consistently in the pictures is that the ones who were'nt naturally pretty weren't pretty after surgery.
Some were awfully scary (in the first post).

Others were really surprising, but I agree with what most people are saying ... people change naturally over time, it's not necessarily surgery, for example the face thinning with weight loss (usually naturally) brings out other features like you wouldn't believe. I look so different even in my eyes and nose now to how I looked when I was chubby.
Surgery free, I promise! :P
