Lee Soo-hyuk’s Instagram (@leesoohyuk)

Lee Soo-hyuk opened his personal instragam account under the username @leesoohyuk

His instagram account got quite a lot followers thanks to his artistic photography and his sense in fashion and art. But in an interview, Lee Soo-hyuk said that he actually is not really comfortable sharing his personal life in social media. Moreover when people start questioning his fashion or trying to get advice.

He said, “I feel the most baffled when people ask me about fashion. I just wear what I like and talk with my friends and that’s all there is to it, really. I’ve never tried dressing anyone either so whenever somebody asks for my advice…. I really feel lost.”

He also said that he is a bit shy. So his instragram account mostly consists of photos not of himself but things that he is interested in.

Why Did Lee So-Hyuk Undergo Plastic Surgery?


His appearance in an event back in 2017 shocked many people. It’s not about anything that he did in the event but because of his drastic change in 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 so much weight.

Lee Soo-hyuk, who is usually seen with a charismatic slicked back hair style, let down his bangs for a more softer look. However, that’s not all 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 seem to show what appears to be a slight change in the actor’s eye shape and nose, which has led to a more mild appearance than what fans are used to.

Lee Soo-hyuk was called “the chief of the cold handsome” and he was as popular as a cold look, reminiscent of a vampire. He was famous for his strong dark circles around his eye which are gone now. So many people speculated that he had undergone plastic surgery.

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.
