K-Pop girl group Six Bomb (식스밤) made their comeback recently and their latest music video has gained immense attention for its “unique” concept.
“Becoming Prettier (After)”, is a follow up to their recently released track, titled “Becoming Prettier (Before)”. While the latter shows the girls’ pre-surgery features and going to the clinic, the former places focus on the results of their surgery.
According to All Kpop, Six Bomb spent around 100 million KRW (approximately USD88,000) for all 4 members (Soa, Da In, Ga Bin, and Seul Bi). “We can’t explain exactly where we got procedures but you can basically say that we got work done in parts above our waist,” said the group.
But in another interview, Da In revealed that she got her breast enlarged and her cheekbones shaved for her comeback. She added, “We all wanted to get some surgeries done to look prettier… and thought, ‘Why not perform a song about it instead of trying to conceal it?’ People will notice it anyway… so we wanted to be open about this reality where many women want to look pretty.”

Although plastic surgery is a common practice in South Korea, Six Bomb, who made their debut in 2012, is the first K-Pop girl group to use it as a marketing strategy.
