[Plastic Surgery] Which Korean Celebrities Possess Golden Ratio For Facial Beauty?

The Korean specialist plastic surgery has revealed to list of celebrities who possess the golden ratio for facial beauty on Mnet‘s "Moon Hee Jun’s Innocent 15+."

To determine which idols have the perfect facial ratios, the surgeons began by dividing the survey between male and female stars. The male candidates included popular idols such as 2PM’s Nichkhun, BIGBANG’s T.O.P, SHINee’s Minho, Super Junior’s Donghae, and EXO’s Suho. Some of the female candidates mentioned were Girls’ Generation’s Yoona, Red Velvet‘s Irene, missA’s Suzy, Girl’s Day’s Yura, Davichi’s Kang Minkyung, f(x)’s Krystal, and AOA’s Seolhyun.

The plastic surgeons discussed previous and current facials ratio trends and stated that, “The perfect facial ratio was 1:1:1 in the past, but the recent trend of wanting to look sharper and younger made the 1:1:0.8 ratio most appealing.” The numbers represent the distance of forehead to eye brows, eye brows to nose tip, and nose tip to chin.

In the male category, WINNER’s Kim Jinwoo placed second and a plastic surgeon commented saying, “[Kim Jinwoo’s] overall ratio fits perfectly with the current trend. He has a very good facial features.” EXO’s Suho took the title of best facial ratio and was even said to have “the golden facial ratio” by one of the plastic surgeons.

In the female category, Irene from the rookie group Red Velvet beat out her senior competition and came in second place. A surgeon explained, “[Irene’s] upper, middle, and lower portions of the face have a good ratio and is maintained well.” Girls’ Generation’s Yoona took the title for the best facial ratio in the female category and received comments saying, “[Yoona’s] facial proportions are perfect and it could be considered the ideal face.”

Here are the candidates and an example of the facial mapping:

Chansung To Play An Idol In A Korean-Chinese Production

Chansung To Play An Idol In A Korean-Chinese Production

2PM"s Chansung has become the latest k-celeb to sign on for a Chinese production. He will appear in the musical film titled "I Wanna Hold Your Hand." It is a title inspired a Beatles song.

This coming of age film is actually a collaborative effort between Korea"s JYP Entertainment and the Chinese entertainment company East Entertainment Group.

According to a JYP representative, Hwang Chansung will appear as G.O., the youngest member of Stars, a once popular idol group.

That"s fitting because in real life, Chansung, 24, is also the youngest member of the band 2PM. Except that in real life, 2PM is still popular.

The JYP representative said that the singer and actor plays a supporting role to fellow JYPE actor Wei Da Xun, who has been cast as the film"s lead.

Chansung"s character in the film "I Wanna Hold Your Hand" is named D.O. He is described as a quirky spontaneous genius composer. D.O. is so spontaneous that his impulsive actions often land him in trouble. And if he is in trouble, the rest of the group also has a problem.

Chansung is currently shooting his first film "Red Carpet." The romantic comedy tells the story of a romance between a porn director and a former child actress. In that film Chansung plays Dae Yun, a member of the director"s filming crew. Hwang Chansung also has drama acting experience, having appeared in the Korean dramas "Unstoppable High Kick," "Level 7 Civil Servant" and the Japanese drama "Kaito Royale."

More JYP idols may also appear in the film, as the musical will feature singing and dancing.

So, it"s fitting that the director has music video credentials. Hwang Soo, who created music videos for Infinite"s "Chaser," IU"s "Good Day" and Ga In"s "Bloom" will direct the film.

Korean actors and idols have become increasingly popular in China. And there is a greater demand for them to appear in Chinese films and dramas. Song Seung Hoon, Song Hye Kyo, Kim Tae Hee, Kim Bum, miss A"s Gia and Kwon Sang Woo are all either considering roles or have recently taken roles in a Chinese film or drama.

In 2013 a Beijing newspaper Cheonbao said that Korean actors had taken as many as 10 leading roles since 2011, while they only filled 20 roles in the previous decade.

"I Wanna Hold Your Hand" is expected to premiere in 2015.

Another Korean Celebrity Defends Plastic Surgery

Another Korean Celebrity Defends Plastic Surgery

As plastic surgery becomes more generally accepted, more Korean celebrities are deciding to be honest about the work they had done.

One of those celebrities is Hong Jin Young. Hong is a singer and also acted in the 2006 historical drama Yeon Gae Somun. She is currently on "We Got Married," paired up in a virtual marriage with actor Namgoong Min.

When the singer recently appeared on the June 16 KBS show "Crisis Escape," the discussion topic was plastic surgery. Panelists were discussing a man who broke off his engagement when he saw a picture of his fiancée before plastic surgery. Was he right to break off the engagement? Was she wrong to hide it? Who was to blame in such a situation?

Hong Jin Young was upset by the idea that some of the panelists might think the woman had done something wrong.

"Can"t a woman get married if she had plastic surgery," she asked.

Then the singer was asked if she had ever had plastic surgery and she confessed to having it more than once. It was not the first time she confessed but the panelists had not heard her previous declaration.

"I got plastic surgery in two places but since I got my nose done twice," she said. "I went through a total of three operations."

She is also not the first celebrity to admit to altering her looks. A few celebrities confess each year. Her virtual husband confessed to getting shots of Botox to smooth out his wrinkles. On "Radio Star," Nam Goong Min, who currently stars in "Wild Chives and Soybean Soup" and "We Got Married," said, "It wasn"t plastic surgery but it did change my looks a bit."

Lee Si Young, who played Seo Yi Re in the drama "Golden Cross" and Bae Kkob in the film "The Divine Move," was one of the first actresses to admit having work done. It has been almost a decade since her surgery.

"After the surgery at age 23, I never had more work done," she said on MBC"s Golden Fishery Radio Show."

Lee Da Hae, who stars in "Hotel King," had fans wondering for years, but finally admitted last year that she did some "remodeling" to her face.

Kim Yoon Hye, who appeared in "Flower Boys Next Door," said she got surgery when people said she was no longer as pretty as she used to be. After making some changes to her face, she said she felt more confident.

What do you think about Hong Jin Young"s admission?
