Sejeong’s Plastic Surgery Rumor
As reported from Koreaboo, there was a piece of news back in 2012 claiming that Kim Se-jeong has done a double-eyelid surgery. However, to this, she responded by pretending to be one of her friends and defended herself regarding her double-eyelid surgery.
When she was a participant of K-Pop Star 2, she admitted that she has browsed online for information and has read some hurtful comments about her appearance in the previous competition show, Produce 101.
There was also a photo of Kim Se-jeong from her pre-debut, back when she was still a junior high school student. In the caption, it was written, “A pair of double eye-lid ㅋㅋㅋ ㅋㅋㅋ.”
Seeing the photos online, in fact, raised people’s curiosity about Kim Se-jeong looking quite different when compared. K-netizens also made a point about her swollen face in one of the photos and they left a lot of comments in the online community forum.
Kim Se-jeong, who also read the comments and saw how people reacted to her pre-debut photo also give her own clarification. But she was probably too afraid to go online so she pretended to be an alumnus of her school and defended herself by saying that the person who wrote the comment is actually an acquaintance of hers. She wrote that they’re friends since they were kids but aren’t close anymore and don’t really talk much nowadays. She clarified that the plastic surgery rumor is not true at all.
Although the reply was sent as another person, Kim Se-jeong felt guilty and admitted it was her who sent the comment.
On March 31st, 2017, Kim Se-jeong appeared on Happy Together 3 with Girl’s Day’s Hye-ri and confessed about the negative comments they had seen in the online community. Kim Se-jeong explained that there were comments back when she participated in the K-Pop Star 2 and people who had already seen her pre-debut photos argued that she has already undergone a double-eyelid surgery which is what actually made her very upset. The member of Gugudan, Kim Se-jeong, then added that these are her actual eyes, the ones she inherited from her parents.
Gugudan’s Kim Se-jeong admitted that she fought back the negative comment by replying that she used to be in the same class with Kim Se-jeong (in this case she was pretending that the sender is Kim Se-jeong’s ‘friend’) and the rumor about her double-eyelid surgery is not true.
The ex-member of I.O.I, Kim Se-jeong then got a reply to her defense and the person responding wrote, “Are you Se-jeong?” She was even taken aback and surprised that her identity was revealed.
