Did Gugudan Do Plastic Surgery?
Being an appearance-oriented country made South Korea seem somehow shallow compared to other countries. Be that as it may, most of its citizens already have the mindset that you have to look attractive in order to be accepted. In addition, the unspoken principle is even more severe when it comes to celebrities like Gugudan, who is argued to have many pretty members on the team.
The first member whom we observe is none other than Gugudan’s leader, Hana. Originally born as Shin Bo-ra, Hana is known for having the cold-beauty aura in the group. Contrary to her current appearance, Hana’s pre-debut pictures showed her having a more innocent and prudish vibe. Her eyes were already large and her nose was already slim. However, we noticed that Hana may have had a nose job, because the bridge of her nose looks straighter and both sides of her nose are larger than her old nose.
We move to Mimi, the oldest member of the group. Contrary to what the general public may think, Mimi is actually her birth name. In some of her pre-debut photos, Mimi already looks like the typical Korean beauty with her large, double-eyelid eyes, ideal-sized nose, and small lips. We believe that Mimi may have not done any procedures to her face. However, considering that teenagers are allowed to do cosmetical surgeries, Mimi may have changed her facial features prior to the time when her pre-debut photos were taken.
The third member, Haebin, is arguably the underrated main vocalist of Gugudan. In her past photos, Haebin was more often seen with her light-brown hair and with her big, monolid eyes, tall nose, and alluring lips. Though looking not different from her appearance as a Gugudan member, we think that Haebin had a nose job in the past, because the shape of her nose looks unnatural. As you can see, Haebin’s nose bridge and tip are sharp and pointy in an artificial-seeming way. Similarly, we notice that Haebin’s nose bridge in her current photo stands out strangely.
Prior to her debut as a Gugudan member, Nayoung already received exposure when she participated on Produce 101 Season 1. Her calm demeanor and versatile abilities helped her gain solid fanbase. Nayoung may consider getting the glow-up, as she looked different in her middle school and high school days. Nayoung used to wear eyeglasses, which she took off in her high school days. Nayoung’s nose shape was already pronounced, as the nose bridge is pointed and both sides of her nose are flared up. Similar to the other members, we notice that Nayoung may have had a nose job in order to make her nose more narrow and to make her nose bridge stand out more. On the other hand, Nayoung’s eyes remain natural as they look not so much different.
Having the most outstanding popularity does not make Sejeong forget about Gugudan. She continuously promotes individual schedules in order to make her group more recognized by the general public. During her Produce 101 days, many netizens dug up her past photos. Some of them believe that Sejeong had procedures done on her eyes and nose.
As you can see, Sejeong already has double-eyelid eyes and a tall nose bridge, even in her childhood pictures. However, we noticed that her eyes looked swollen in the first picture set, where she stuck out her tongue, which we believe was the aftermath of her eye surgeries. Her nose tip, in her current appearance, also looks unnatural and could be the result of plastic surgery. Back in 2017, during her appearance on a variety show, Sejeong admitted that she had pretended to be a netizen in order to defend herself. She browsed online and came across some hurtful comments on an article claiming she’d had double-eyelid surgery, which was posted on K-Pop Star’s bulletin board.
The allegation led Sejeong to write the comment as an alumnus of her own elementary school, ‘I am an acquaintance of hers, but we are not close since we do not talk nowadays. I have known her since we were kids. She did not have the surgery”. Alas, the netizens saw through Sejeong’s disguise and started asking her whether she is the real Sejeong, which was later admitted by the idol.
The sixth member, Sally, is the only foreign member of the group. Similar to other Chinese girls who debut as K-Pop idols, Sally has had lots of the surface of her pictures on the internet. In her past photos, Sally already looked glowing with her milky white skin, distinctive, large eyes, and tall nose. However, a change can be seen in Sally’s current appearance, as the top of her nose is sharper and both sides of her nose are larger, confirming the allegation that she has done a nose job just like other Gugudan members.
Soyee, otherwise known as Jang So-jin, may be considered as one of the underrated members within the group. However, she has loyal fans who always cheer her on. In her past photos, Soyee already had a unique charisma with her beautiful eyes, her short, yet decent-shaped nose, and thin lips. Compared to her usual appearance as an idol, we do not notice any difference in Soyee’s appearance, except that she looks more fancy and trendy, with makeup on her face and contact lenses which made her eyes even prettier.
The latest acclaimed maknae, Mina, is known for her adorable charm. The idol was born with monolid eyes and a sharp and well-defined nose, along with her V-shaped jaw, which in her school days was filled with baby fat. Similar to Soyee, we believe that Mina is the rare natural beauty within the group, although her eyes look larger due to the use of contact lenses, as well as her slimmer face shape, caused by her diet.
Lastly, the former Gugudan member who was also the youngest member, Hyeyeon, also has child-like beauty. In her school days, Hyeyeon looked chubbier because of her baby fat, but her eyes and nose haven’t changed during her days as an idol. Despite having a plump face, Hyeyeon’s V-shaped jaw still stands out, as well.
Gugudan Sharing Diet Tips
Many people admire celebrities because of their attractive appearances and ideal proportions. The ideal looks assigned to public figures often leaves them feeling pressured about how they look, including Gugudan. One of the most popular members, Kang Mina, once revealed that she once had been on an extreme diet which caused her immune system to weaken.
As a result, Mina caught a bad cold and was slow to recover. Fortunately, now Mina has a healthier diet, which consists of working out at the gym, light walking, and watching what she eats. Mina’s healthy diet helped her lose 3 to 4 kilograms. Currently, Mina is still maintaining her weight by doing her diet.

Early in February, 2019, Gugudan was interviewed by Sports Chosun. The girls shared about their victories at the 2019 Idol Star Athletic Championships – New Year Special in bowling and archery, “We are happy to receive two gold medals from the show. We were able to work harder because we gained strength from the support of our fans”. It turned out that, prior to the competition, Gugudan practiced bowling for a month and archery for half a month.
