Hwang Jung Eum Plastic Surgery Before and After Photos

Did Hwang Jung Eum Undergo Plastic Surgery?

Hwang Jung Eum, one of the most recognised singers and actresses in South Korea, is the subject of plastic surgery rumors due to her good looks. South Korea is known as one of the most popular countries as far as plastic surgeries are concerned. Their film industry boom has led to many superstars being known worldwide. Along with fame, Hwang Jung Eum also attracted plastic surgery gossip as she does not look her actual age. Now in her early 30s, some of her alleged plastic surgery procedures include a nose job, double eyelid surgery and chin implants surgery.


Hwang Jung Eum started her career with the K-Pop girl group Sugar in 2001. She appeared regularly in the television show Love Letter, often having banter with Kim Jong-min. Her popularity soared between 2004 and 2006 because of the pairing with Kim Jong-min. Her first acting stint was in the drama The Person I Love in 2007.



Over the years, she went on to star in many television dramas. Some of them include Giant, Can You Hear My Heart, Golden Time, Incarnation of Money and Endless Love. Her 2015 hit, Kill Me, Heal Me, gave her an increased exposure in China and boosted her popularity in China. In a short span of about 12 years, Hwang Jung Eum achieved many awards. tvN ranked her as one of the 5 earners in the Korean entertainment industry in 2015. Gallup Korea conducted a surgery to select Actors of 2015 and she came up First. With such soaring popularity and intense acting assignments, it is no wonder that Hwang Jung Eum might have undergone plastic surgery to look better.

Hwang Jung Eum did speak about her plastic surgery rumors. Recently, in Entertainment Weekly, Hwang Jung Eum was humble about her beauty, saying “When I was 26 years old, [my looks] were grade A. Back then I thought I was the prettiest person in the world. But now, it’s grade C.” But eventually she changed to grade herself a B+ and gave some beauty tips. She said “I think you become prettier if you drink a lot of water, get a lot of sleep, and keep having pretty thoughts.” She added further about her chin implants rumors, saying “I didn’t get my chin done, but people keep saying I did. I think it’s because I am too pretty.”

How’s that for a display of self-confidence.

Watch Hwang Jung Eum in an old music Video, she already looked amazing then:

Compare that to a recent interview. Other than a slightly “waxy” face, there is hardly any signs of plastic surgery:

Hwang Jung Eum and Double Eyelid Surgery Rumors

Having double eyelids is the dream of those having single eyelids. Many opt to have double eyelids because they make their eyes look bigger and brighter. Double eyelids also enable a person to be more expressive. However, double eyelid surgery is a painful process which has to be endured for a few days.


For Hwang Jung Eum, her before and after photos show a stark difference in her eyes. What appeared to be slit like eyes have suddenly become bigger eyes with double eyelids. However, since Hwang Jung Eum has never admitted to plastic surgery, it is possible that she achieved double eyelids through other means.

Some say that she might have gotten her double eyelids through regular contact lens use. Well, that is not unheard of. Or it could also be due to the clever use of makeup. Some of the makeup around the eyes could also give the illusion of double eyelids.

Hwang Jung Eum and Chin Implant Rumors

Chin Implant surgery is often used to sharpen the chin area and reduce some fats around the chin area. The overall effect is to produce a more defined chin. This gives the jawline an improved appearance. Done by both men and women, chin implant surgery is a painful process but gives a significant enhancement to a person’s face shape.

For Hwang Jung Eum, say what you will but her before and after photos show no distinct difference in her chin shape. Don’t really know what sparked those chin implants rumors as her chin looks basically the same as before. She might have lost some weight since those younger days resulting in a thinner looking face. But that does not mean that she has undergone such extensive chin implants plastic surgery.

Hwang Jung Eum and Nose Job Rumors

Nose jobs, made scary by botched jobs like Michael Jackson, remain as one of the top plastic surgeries performed. Because the nose is at the center of the face, many people target the nose as their first venture into plastic surgery. A successful nose job could lead to a major enhancement in looks. But a botched nose job could lead to some irreversible, horrendous outcomes.

For Hwang Jung Eum, she is one of the fortunate Asians who are born with quite a sharp nose. Definitely not as sharp as some of Europeans stars but her nose does not really look overly flat at all. Even in her earlier photos, she already has quite a nice nose bridge and nose tip.

Looking at Hwang Jung Eum before and after photos, her nose does not seem to have changed much. If she had undergone a nose job or rhinoplasty, the effects should be more obvious than this. The slight differences could be explained by the camera angle or lighting. Though she mentioned she was not happy with her nostrils appearing too high on her face, there is no reason to suspect that she went for a nose job.

Overall, Hwang Jung Eum has managed to preserve her looks well. She is getting prettier with age without much help from plastic surgery. Being a star in South Korea, it is inevitable that plastic surgery gossip will surface once you get more popular. With the recognition she has in the acting industry, we will definitely see more of Hwang Jung Eum in years to come. Let’s hope that she does not surprise us with any distinct plastic surgery signs.
