Plastic surgery is extremely popular in Korea and it seems as through many people have asked to look like their favorite celebrities.
Korean celebrities, both men and women, are known to be some of the most beautiful and handsome people in the world, making the standard of beauty in the country extremely high. While many individuals contemplate undergoing plastic surgery to improve their looks, becoming like their favorite celebrity is not always possible. In addition, many Korean celebrities are accused of undergoing plastic surgery themselves, such as EXID‘s Hani, G-Friend‘s Eunha, Red Velvet‘s Joy, I.O.I‘s Chaeyeon, and some even admit to it themselves.
A recent post on the Korean community board Instiz by the title, “Words I heard from plastic surgeons on the relationship between people and celebrity photos,” demonstrated that undergoing a procedure to look like your favorite celebrity may not be possible in the first place.
The original poster showed pictures of actress Han Yeseul, INFINITE’s leader Kim Sungkyu, JYJ’s Kim Jaejoong, and VIXX’s Ken to plastic surgeons to see their response. The resulting comments from the plastic surgeons are quite hilarious and many netizens expressed their wish to be reborn with Kim Sungkyu’s face type as well as commented that Ken’s nose is like artwork.
A translation of the original Korean post is below:
It would be faster to carve a new face in the back of your head.
To get such a jawline, you would have to extract all of your teeth.
If you make your eyes so large, your bones would show.
If you make your nose so high, it would melt off the second you stepped off of the surgery bed.
Celebrities are not celebrities for no reason.
Everyone is so pretty and handsomeㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ
