How many times have you heard this or said this to yourself – “I want to look attractive/good“. There seems to be always something lacking when we look at the mirror. In Korean culture, many view plastic surgery as an “enhancement” or extension of makeup to upgrade their features.
Thus, it’s a norm for youngsters to look to K-pop idols and Korean actors on their ideal of “perfection”. Contrary to popular belief, even men have not been opposed to going under the knife. Here are some of the most requested Korean male celebrities, according to some of the best plastic surgeons in South Korea:
1. Cha Eun-Woo (Astro)
Astro’s (아스트로) Cha Eun-Woo (차은우) is not only good-looking, but he’s also super talented and smart. His appearance is often mentioned on every programme he goes on because of how beautiful he looks. It’s no wonder the 24-year-old has earned the nickname, “face genius”.
2. Seo Kang-Joon
Seo Kang-Joon (서강준) comes in second due to his light brown-eyed features. Because his eyes are so attractive, many male plastic surgery patients usually bring along a picture of Kang-Joon during a plastic surgery consultation.
3. V (BTS)
Not entirely surprising, BTS’ (방탄소년단) V (뷔) finds himself in the top 3. His good looks are always brought up anytime the topic of visuals is mentioned. Plastic surgeons also expressed how V’s eyes are so pretty, that “they can’t be replicated by surgery.” Funnily enough, Korean comedian and host Jang Do-Yeon (장도연) exclaimed that V should’ve been first and not third, during Mnet‘s TMI News segment.
4. Song Kang
“Sweet Home” (스위트홈) and “Love Alarm” (좋아하면 울리는) heartthrob Song Kang (송강) is placed fourth, as plastic surgeons have mentioned that his face resembles both BTOB’s (비투비) Sung-Jae (성재) and Astro’s Cha Eun-Woo.
5. Sung-Jae (BTOB)
Sliding into the top 5 is of course, BTOB’s Sungjae himself. The idol has been complimented for having an amazing beauty ratio heightened by his double eyelids. Because of how attractive his eyelids are, plastic surgeons remarked how it was difficult to copy his eyelids during plastic surgery, making him almost unrivaled.
6. Jin (BTS)
Looks like V isn’t the only BTS member on the list, as Jin is in sixth place. Jin has always been able to exude confidence in public, which makes him all the more admirable. In addition, Jin’s outstanding proportion of his facial features is called “Zeus’ face”. The plastic surgeons who appeared on TMI News zone in on how his face shape and eyes are simply stunning.
7. Sehun (EXO)
Last on the list is EXO’s (엑소) Sehun (세훈). He doesn’t just stand out among all the other handsome EXO members, but he was also chosen as “SM Entertainment’s Visual Representative.” During the broadcast, the idol received a lot of praise. Furthermore, his jawline and long nose bridge are just impeccable, which makes him even more handsome.
