It all started when NCT 127 made their first comeback in February 2017, with the song called ‘Limitless.’ During this era, fans were shocked because of how Yuta’s chin had changed. As we know, he never used to have a pointy chin. But during this comeback, out of the blue, Yuta’s chin became sharper than before. Some fans started to speculate that he had had some plastic surgery, or used a filler.
Take a look at this pictures, for example:
Whenever there is a picture of him taken in profile, just like the pictures above us, you can see that Yuta’s chin is sharp, especially at the tip. Here is a comparison picture before and during the ‘Limitless’ era:
You can see it clearly that in the ‘before’ picture his chin looks more rectangular, but in the picture n the right, his chin looks longer and pointier. The majority of the fans don’t take this matter seriously, and have even said the reason Yuta’s chin looks like it was changed is due to the angle of the camera.
Here are some of the comments from the fans that are on the pro-side:
- Ok, I’ve seen him in person before and he looks totally fine. His chin doesn’t look strange at all, it doesn’t even look protruded if you see him in person.
- I don’t think so. And I don’t think it’s none of your business whether if he had done plastic surgery or not.
- Don’t you think it’s just because he lost a lot.. like a lot.. of weight..?
- I don’t know about that, but he sure looks different now.. He looked really young in Abnormal Summit and he looks more mature now..
- I think the OP is trying to drag Yuta down by spreading this rumor.. Just saying..
So what do you think about the matter? Which side are you on, do you believe the rumor or think it’s nothing?
In June, NCT 127 came back with ‘Cherry Bomb.’ Yuta was showing his sexy charisma in this era, but some people were still talking about his ‘weird’ chin. Let’s take a look at his photo during this era, shall we?
In 2018, Yuta did a lot of projects with the group. The first project was called NCT 2018, which was a project where all the NCT members from different units gathering and did a dance performance together with a song called ‘Black on Black.’
Here are Yuta’s pictures during that era:
The biggest project was a comeback with his group, NCT 127, who did a total of three comebacks that year. The first one was ‘Touch.’ The comeback was right after the NCT 2018 project. Here is one of his pictures:
The second one was a comeback with the album ‘Regular – Irregular,’ and the title song ‘Regular’. Here is Yuta’s teaser picture:
The last comeback was with NCT’s repackaged album from their ‘Regular – Irregular’ comeback, with the title track ‘Simon Says.’
During that year, Yuta’s chin scandal was actually still a topic among people, especially during the first months of 2018. But slowly, the issue started to fade.
