Did Lee Soo-hyuk Undergo Plastic Surgery?
His appearance at an event back in 2017 shocked many people. Not because of anything that he did in the event, but because of the drastic change in his appearance. The media almost couldn’t recognize him. One news outlet in Korea reported that this drastic change is because Lee Soo-hyuk changed his hairstyle and he lost a lot of weight.
Lee Soo-hyuk, who is usually seen with a charismatic, slicked-back hairstyle, let down his bangs for a softer look. However, that’ wasn’t the only that was different about him. Fans noticed that the actor, who is known for his sharp, masculine appearance, looked much more gentle in photos from the event. A comparison between earlier photos of Lee Soo-hyuk and photos of him from the event seems to show a slight change in the actor’s eye shape and nose, which has led to a more softer appearance than fans are used to.
Many of his fans and followers speculate that Lee Soo-hyuk has undergone surgery to alter his body and muscles. His arms looked so brawny, with a perfectly cut muscle, and his six-pack abs are also amazing and are sure to attract attention. The change was a clear hint towards a surgical transformation, but he’s never admitted having any surgery and said that “I am totally original, and this is a result of heavy workout and exercises”.
Compared to his earlier photos, Lee Soo-hyuk appears to have a slight change in the shape of his eyes and nose, reports Soompi, giving him a milder look than fans are used to seeing. Some news channels are reporting that the change in his appearance is only due to a diet that resulted in weight loss.
According to Latest Plastic Surgery, some netizens are suggesting that the actor used botox to increase his facial mass. Botox is a common treatment for wrinkles, due to its instant effect and almost immediate recovery. However, in his case, the injection rumor apparently came about because he looked more chubby than normal in his latest photos.
Lee Soo-hyuk has a naturally angular face, some netizens couldn’t believe that the fuller look was just a result of weight gain. They speculate that the actor underwent a round of botox injections to fill his face. Other outrageous rumors also include surgery to alter the shape of his mouth.
Lee Soo-hyuk was called “the chief of the cold handsome”, and he was popular for his cold look, reminiscent of a vampire. He was famous for the strong, dark circles around his eyes which seem to be gone, now, leading many to believe this is a result of having work done.
Although there are so many speculations about his sudden change, his agency didn’t give an official comment regarding this matter. Many people expressed disappointment, while others supported the change.
Lee Soo-hyuk went through similar rumors, years ago. He was very young when he started modeling career, and his body was very slender, and lacked muscle. His slim physique didn’t look perfect in some of the heavy suits, which could be a drawback in his modeling career. Later, in 2010, when he appeared in “The Boy from Ipanema”, he was transformed. Many of his fans were stunned to see how he had filled out.
