Before and After Comparison of HIGHLIGHT’s Lee Gi-kwang’s Plastic Surgery

Asia’s Most Handsome Man, Lee Gi-kwang

Plastic surgery is defined as the action of surgical intervention involving the restoration, reconstruction, or alteration of the human body. It can be divided into two categories. The first is reconstructive surgery which includes craniofacial surgery, hand surgery, microsurgery, and the treatment of burns. The other is cosmetic or aesthetic surgery. For some people in South Korea, having plastic surgery is simply a normal act. Even ordinary people have done this as well, mostly due to the fact that South Korea is a well-known plastic surgery destination.

Unlike in other countries outside of South Korea, where the idea of plastic surgery can be somewhat controversial, in South Korea, it is totally regarded as a normal act. Every so often, a teenager in South Korea is likely to receive a birthday present in the form of plastic surgery being done to him. It is such an ordinary thing to do in South Korea, that it is not something worth gossiping about, especially when celebrities do it.

Let’s check out the man who got labeled as the most handsome face in Asia, Lee Gi-kwang. A South Korean singer, songwriter, and actor who is known as Gikwang or Kikwang. In October 2009, he debuted as the main dancer and lead vocalist of the boy band BEAST, which in February 2017 was renamed HIGHLIGHT.

On March 1st, in a broadcast of tvN’s “Wednesday Food Talk,” he talked about ranking first on I-Magazine’s Top Male Fashion Face List in Asia. He said, “I didn’t know exactly where I was picked as the most handsome Asian male face, but I found out through social media. The ones who created the list were Fashion directors and designers from Hong Kong and Taiwan. Surprisingly, I made it on the list.”

This man, who was born on March 30, 1990, and comes from Naju, South Korea, has a well-defined nose and full lips. The perfect shape of his face is actually quite difficult to come across in South Korea. It’s kinda suspicious for some people, even fans because his nostrils are completely well formed and his sharp nose is shaped perfectly. His tapered face also makes him more attractive and leaves no doubt of why he really won the first prize in the “2017 Fashion Awards Asian Men” category. The second year at Hong Kong E-Magazine’s award for selecting the most suitable face image for male artists in Asia.

Anyway, instead of searching for some rumor or gossip about his doing plastic surgery, just take a look and compare his face throughout the years.

Our Little Gikwang

This is Lee Gi-kwang back when he was still in high school. When we take note of his facial features from his high school photos, we can easily see that Gi-kwang already had a well-shaped nose. His pale oily skin only makes him look more gorgeous as he poses with a serious face.

Let’s move to Gi-kwang’s photo of the following year.

This is Gi-kwang’s photo of back when he was still in high school. When we take a closer look at his facial features, we can clearly see that he is the same as in the first photo; nothing has changed. He still has a well-defined sharp nose and pale white skin with nicely shaped red lips. He looks really handsome in that suit, right? Let’s assume that he still hasn’t done any plastic surgery by this age. Most of the artists or performers involved in the entertainment industry have been rumored to have gone through plastic surgery from the time of their debut or trainee period.
