Kim Hyun Joong and Nose Job Rumors
Nose jobs are common among celebrities. There are also cases of botched nose jobs that require numerous corrective rhinoplasties to fix. Just think of what happened to the late Michael Jackson. However, with today’s advancement in plastic surgery techniques, such mishaps are minimised. So long as the plastic surgeon is experienced and the patient is not overly ambitious, nose jobs can result in a wonderful transformation.
Nose jobs are primarily used to reshape and resize the nose. Most Asians have a rounder nose and would want to have a sharper nose tip. As the nose is the central feature of the face, a well executed nose job can enhance a person’s looks greatly.
For Kim Hyun Joong, his before and after photos show little difference in his nose shape. His earlier photos show a slightly more bulbous nose than now. Kim Hyun Joong admitted to having a nose job done too. But he mentioned that its not for vanity purposes but for recovery purposes. He shared that his nose was the victim of a stone throw from some boys. The impact left him with no choice but to undergo surgery to fix his nose. Perhaps that explains why the outcome of his “nose job” is so subtle. He did not mean it to be a transformative surgery anyway.
Overall, Kim Hyun Joong does not look very much different from his younger days. To say that he underwent plastic surgery to look better is unfair. This is because his “nose job” was required to restore his nose after an accident. He never intentionally opt for the nose job. Nevertheless, his talent is what matters. Its not only being good looking and handsome, but Kim Hyun Joong has won the hearts of many fans with his great acting and singing skills.
To be able to outshine the numerous singers and actors in South Korea is an amazing feat. We look forward to more outstanding performances by Kim Hyun Joong after he finishes his army national service in February 2017. What do you think of Kim Hyun Joong plastic surgery rumors?
