Yoon Joo-hee’s Rumored Plastic Surgery
With a slim figure and a height of almost 170 cm, she dreamed of modeling since her childhood. In 2005, she began to advertise herself through the music channel Mnet Entertainment Wide for 8 months. Since then, she appeared in many dramas and landed several significant supporting roles. Though the actress herself admitted that her look seems too common, we can’t help but wonder whether Yoon Joo-Hee has gone through any beauty enhancements or was naturally born that way.
As you may see from the pictures above (early debut) and below (present), she doesn’t look like she has aged. Even though the images were taken more than 10 years apart, the actress seems to maintain her youthful look.
Because of this, some people speculate that she has done something to her face such as fillers because her current face shape looks unnatural. But, there’s no official confirmation regarding the speculations. What do you think about it?
