So … did Shin Se Kyung have plastic surgery or not?


A recent topic of discussion is whether actress Shin Se Kyung cut her face up, especially after her appearance on KBS 2TV‘s “Entertainment Relay“.

Netizens compared her recent appearance with past images, pointing out she now seems to possess thicker double eyelids, a perfect V-line jaw, as well as plumper cheeks. Some commented, “Did she get plastic surgery?”, “Something’s changed”, “Her pictures surprised me because I couldn’t recognize her”, and “She’s lost her original charms.”


Her representatives, of course, denied it.

Representatives of the actress followed up shortly after with a statement explaining, “She did not get any plastic surgery. She got surgery to erase the scars on her face. She originally had scars on both sides of her cheeks that looked like nail scratch marks. She merely had them removed during her hiatus.”

The representative continued, “The scars could be too easily seen on HD TV, and this surgery was more difficult than the average surgery involving just the use of laser. Her surgery required that part of the skin be torn and lifted. In the process of recovery, her skin swelled, which accounts for her cheeks looking more plump.”

When asked how severe the scars on her face were, he replied, “The scars were deep, and they were caught on the HD cameras no matter what we tried. She mentioned that she had a hard time auditioning when she was younger because of them. She put it off because it wasn’t an easy surgery and finally just used the time during her hiatus to get them removed.”

Concluding the explanation, he stated, “It hasn’t been that long since she had the surgery. If she had really gotten plastic surgery done, she wouldn’t have shot a CF, much less appear on ‘Entertainment Relay’.”

It shouldn’t shock you that netizens thought she had undergone a procedure, as they will speculate on just about anything.

1. [+469, -54] Double eye lid surgery + jaw ㅋㅋㅋ as well as some fat under her eyes. I could tell right away after seeing Entertainment Relay.

2. [+426, -57] She can’t even use weight loss as an excuse for this ㅋㅋㅋ Since she’s been on hiatus for so long, looks like she went and got everything fixed…

3. [+280, -38] I see a bit of Kim Nayoung in her ㅠㅠㅠ Oh no ㅠㅠ

1. [+782, -115] I was wondering why she wasn’t getting rid of those scars, looks like she finally did. For an actress, they were really apparent on screen.

2. [+787, -365] So she only got rid of her scars but all of a sudden there are aegyo fat under her eyes, thicker double eyelids, and a thinner jaw line. I don’t even think she can close her eyes properly at this rate.

3. [+663, -322] ㅋㅋㅋ Let’s not forget the thicker double eyelids and the fat transplant under her eyes ㅋㅋㅋ

So they’re known to overreact to slight differences in angles, photoshop, and lighting, but I generally don’t … and I gotta say she looks different.

Sort of like the Lee Da Hee thing where you just look at it and say, “Gee, something is … uh … off.

What say you?
