K-Pop is becoming one of the fastest-growing and influential music scenes today. And their demand is growing with each passing day. As such, K-Pop artists have to meet the needs of the fans with their rise in popularity.
They have to appear in public, sit for interviews, meet and greet fans, etc. And when you’re part of a group that is setting the music scene on fire, you have to live up to that. You have to take care of your image and looks.
And without a doubt, these K-Pop artists look stunning every time they appear for live shows or interviews. What is the secret behind their incredibly vibrant looks?
The most common answer everyone gives here is cosmetic surgery. Today we’re going to talk about a K-Pop band that has constantly been under the radar for their outrageous stage persona and looks. Yes, we are talking about the girl band, So Nyuh Shi Dae (Girl’s Generation).
Who are So Nyuh Shi Dae?
Girl’s Generation is known as So Nyuh Shi Dae in their home nation. They are an 8-piece ensemble, Taeyeon, Hyoyeon, Seohyun, Sooyoung, Yuri, Yoona, Tiffany and Sunny.
The all-girls 8-piece outfit was formed in 2007 and originally consisted of nine members. The ninth member, Jessica, left the group in 2014 due to conflicts between the group and her business ventures.
Although formed in 2007, it was not until 2009 that the band started to gain recognition. Their single “Gee” shot the band into stardom in Korea. The popularity of the band grew with each passing year. And a few years later, they had already achieved superstar status. They have also released a Japanese album, which is the first-ever by a non-Japanese artist.
The group’s music is a crossover of K-Pop, bubblegum pop and Electronic music. To date, they have released nine studio albums, including three in the Japanese language. The band has been so influential that they have been honored as “The Nation’s Girl Group” in Korea.
Before and After Pictures
Korean artists and surgery are two things that go hand-in-hand, at least according to the media. They have always been accused of surgery because most of them don’t look their age. And the girls from So Nyuh Shi Dae did not escape this drama.
These nine women have taken the music scene by storm, not just in their homeland but the entire world. But it is not just their music the world is interested in. The girls have also been under the noses of the media for alleged surgery. If you want to find out, keep reading below.
Over the years, they are rumored to have undergone several cosmetic procedures on their face and eyes. Let us look at what the reports say about each member.
- Jessica – Even though she is no longer a member, let us include her too. Jessica was rumored to have undergone jawline surgery. You can see the difference in her before and after pictures online.
- Taeyeon – She might have had minor tweaks done on her nose. The 32-year-old was also spotted with a much sharper jawline.
- Hyoyeon – fans suspect that Hyoyeon underwent a nose job and jawline surgery.
- Sunny – There’s not much information about Sunny undergoing any reconstructive procedures. However, we can point out her eyes which look enlarged if we compare before and after images.
- Yuri – The same goes for Yuri. There is not much difference in her looks.
- Tiffany – Other than a skin bleach, Tiffany looks clean. We don’t suspect her of going under the knife.
- Seohyun – Out of all the girls, Seohyun looks the most natural. It seems like she is not a fan of the surgeon’s scalpel.
- Yoona – People suspect that Yoona might have undergone Rhinoplasty to fix her nose.
- Sooyoung – Similar to Yoona, Sooyoung also appears to have had a nose job.
Now you know what the internet thinks of our beloved idols. Some of them look clean. But we are not entirely convinced. Let us examine further in detail.
Did they get face fillers?
So Nyuh Shi Dae members are rumored to use face fillers to enhance their appearance. No wonder they look striking every time. For instance, Taeyeon had chubbier cheeks and a round jawline. Sunny also looks to have had implants on her chin and forehead. Her forehead seems stretched in recent pictures.
Yoona’s jawline, in particular, looks broader in her pictures before. Now she sports a V-shaped chin which makes her even more attractive. Jessica also got her jawline fixed at some point. The line from the chin to her ears looks less bulky and does not have the “L” shape.
Maybe not Botox, but in Korea, many people use skin bleaching. This is why Korean celebrities look so fair and vivid in pictures or videos on YouTube. And the girls are also accused of using bleaching procedures to brighten their skin tone. Sometimes they look like they have applied a photo filter to look younger.
Did they undergo eyelift?
Taeyeon’s eyes look more prominent in recent pictures. Her eyelids appear much thicker, and it seems like she underwent a double eyelid procedure. Similarly, Tiffany also followed the same path.
She has also removed excess fat from her eye bags. Now her eyes look more defined. Jessica might also have undergone eyelid surgery at some point in her career.
Sunny’s eyes also look rounder which suggests an eye lift. Her eyes looked thin before. Years later, they look round, and her eye bags are nowhere to be seen.
Eyelid surgeries or Blepharoplasty can cost around $3,500 in Korea.
Did they get a nose jobs?
Some of the girls from So Nyuh Shi Dae are rumored to have had nose jobs in the past. It is very apparent in their before and after images. For example, let us look at Taeyeon and Hyoyeon. Their noses look different in their pictures before. But the after images show Taeyeon with a sharper nose bridge. The tip also looks enhanced.
Similarly, Hyoyeon has a narrower-looking nose. Before, she had wider nostrils, but now it looks more defined. Yoona’s nose tip also looks pointier. It looks like she also enhanced her tip to go from round to sharp. Her nostrils also appear raised.
Rhinoplasty procedures cost around $4500 in Korea.
The girls are still young, and all of them are in their early thirties, which is a tender age. At this stage, not many people opt for surgery because they still have a youthful glow. In fact, this is a prime age. But with media attention and popularity, the girls would try their best to stand out at any cost.
