Anyway, previously, she denied having undergone plastic surgery, but it may have reached the point where her face is too obvious and fans started to speculate. Some fans wondered why such a beautiful girl would change her appearance and left comments such as “I really think she’s doing surgery way too often, and she was prettiest when she appeared in My Girl,” “Her face has really turned weird,” “Why does she keep touching it up? It’s so disappointing.”
So, what do you think about her surgeries? Regardless, she is pleased with the changes to her appearance, and she wants her fans to focus more on her performances.
