The Two K-Pop Idols Who Are The Most Requested Celebrity Faces For Plastic Surgery Among Men In South Korea, According To A Doctor
Often dubbed the “Plastic Surgery Capital of the World”, South Korea is known for the high number of people, both natives as well as foreigners, who have some kind of cosmetic procedure done in the country. From simple Botox and lip injections to more complex procedures that are much riskier and more invasive, if you want to have some sort of work done, South Korea is arguably one of the best places to do it.
Despite how common it is for Koreans to have work done, there is still some controversy over K-Pop idols and whether or not they’re “natural” beauties or have had work done. That doesn’t stop people from using certain celebrities as their inspiration for getting plastic surgery, though, and recently, a survey was conducted to see which idols are most commonly used as blueprints for men’s cosmetic procedures.
Unsurprisingly, the two idols that were most commonly requested are known as some of the most objectively handsome male celebrities in the Korean entertainment business.
One of the top choices is BTS‘s Jin, while the other is ASTRO‘s Cha Eunwoo.
According to the survey, other popular celebrities that are brought up among male plastic surgery clients are BTS’s V, BTOB‘s Sungjae, and EXO‘s Sehun.
Dr. Choi Hyun, a plastic surgeon in South Korea, had this to say about the two idols.
Jin and Cha Eunwoo have very symmetrical and well-proportioned features. They also have a certain ‘je ne sais quoi’ that makes them stand out from the crowd.

He went on to add, however, that one should still have realistic goals when planning on getting plastic surgery done, and that it can only do so much with one’s natural features.
K-Pop idols are often seen as the epitome of beauty and perfection. This can lead some people to want to emulate their looks through plastic surgery. It’s important to remember that plastic surgery is not a magic bullet. It can help you to achieve a more symmetrical or proportioned look, but it won’t change your entire appearance.

So while plastic surgery might not be able to make you look exactly like Jin or Eunwoo, it hasn’t kept people from using them as inspiration for what they aspire to look more like!
