What do you think after seeing his before- and after-debut pictures? Do you think he had plastic surgery?

While he hasn’t ever made an official statement about whether or not he’s had work done, Ji Chang-wook has mentioned plastic surgery in several instances. Back in 2012, during a TV interview, Ji Chang-wook discussed why doctors advised against it.

He said, “I went to see a plastic surgeon because I wanted to get my nose done. I went for a consultation. The doctor kept telling me that if I got my nose done, I would look awkward. So I got scared and left.” 

Later in 2017, Ji Chang-wook proudly shared his favorite features about himself: his signature eyelids and wide-set shoulders. He later told the host that his body and facial features have never been touched by a surgeon.

“For my shoulders, I was born with a wide frame. I thank my parents for that. You’ll have to see a plastic surgeon to get eyelids like mine… but I don’t think even a doctor could give you these.”

Koreans and fans worldwide still adore his handsome face, whether he had surgery or not. Well, it seems that Ji Chang-wook wins people’s hearts not just with his face or body, but with his charm and talent!
