To quite a number of South Koreans, plastic surgery is fast becoming a way of enhancing their visual appeal. It is therefore not hard to believe the IU plastic surgery rumors.
A while back, the allegations started doing rounds on the internet and the before and after photos that have been featured clearly bring out the truth. Initially, IU repeatedly denied having undergone any plastic surgery procedures.
It is however reported that at one time in an interview, she admitted to having undergone the knife. The admission aside, there are some rather evident transformations in IU’s looks that can only be explained by having gone under the plastic surgeon’s knife to work on her looks.
IU’s Skin Whitening
Some of the rumors on IU plastic surgery have indicated that she has had a skin whitening procedure. The procedure is basically aimed at making the skin color lighter and more vibrant.
Taking a keen look at the before and after photos however reveal that these rumors may not be accurate. At the beginning of her career, IU had fair and light skin and it is pretty much the same as the skin she has got now.
Her fans have indicated that the color difference that may have been seen occasionally is as a result of either lighting or makeup.
IU’s Eyelid Surgery
The eyelid surgery is a pretty common procedure especially in South Korea. A typical Korean has narrow eyes and the procedure is aimed at making the eye more open and wider to enhance the facial looks.
This has been said to be among the IU plastic surgery procedures and the results are dashing. The before photos show IU with the typical narrow eyes while the after photos show her eyes wide open. Although some sources have stated that this is as a result of makeup, there is just no way makeup can make eyes look wide when they are not.
IU’s Nose Job
At the beginning of her career, IU’s nose was somewhat rounded at the tip. Her current photos however show something totally different.
She has a pointed nose that is well shaped and unites with her other facial features perfectly. Achieving this transformation overnight can only be done through cosmetic surgery. While it is still unclear the procedure that IU admitted to having undergone, chances are high she meant something she did with her face.
Born Lee Ji-eun, IU is a South Korean actress, singer and songwriter. Her ambition of joining the music industry started way back in middle school when she auditioned for a number of talent agencies. Signing up with LOEN Entertainment as a trainee in 2007, IU commenced her career in music at the age of 15.
Her debut album was Lost and Found which she then followed up with Growing Up. She has also been on TV, being featured on a variety show known as Heroes. The show ran between 18th July 2010 and 1st May 2011. The show was a great way for IU to remain in the public spectacle.
