(Photo : Millet) Korean celebrities often turn towards social media to address issues that have been plaguing them in real-life. However, actress Park Shin Hye used her Instagram account (@ssinz7) to dismiss harsh claims by users that she has had plastic surgery.
While previous reports speculated that the actress was upset over cyber bullies, My Daily explored the issue from the angle that the star has been plagued by detractors who have alleged that she has had numerous plastic surgery procedures.
On August 21, she posted a message which called for an end to hateful comments on her social media. Her message accompanied a photo where she is turned away from the camera and peering into a plunging shoreline.
"I"m living my life the way my mother gave birth to me," said Park, through her Instagram post. "Why with your pretty lips and hands are you saying those things, writing those things? Sigh, such a pity."

Netizens delivered their overwhelming support, through positive comments posted to the My Daily article. According to the forum, Netizen Buzz, one of the highest voted comments reflected on the natural beauty of the actress. "There are people who actually claim Park Shin Hye had plastic surgery?," asked the commenter. "You can just look at her past photos and see for yourself. It"s obvious she"s a natural [beauty]."
Having appeared in the public eye from a young age in works like the 2003 drama, "Stairway to Heaven," Park has come under scrutiny for her early struggles with weight and awkward teen years. However, she has evolved into a leading Korean endorsement model and exemplifies fashionable young women. She is a spokesmodel for brands like Mind Bridge, Millet and Lotte Duty-Free.
The 25-year-old Hallyu star has repeated refuted these claims and individuals who have previously worked with her, including "The Royal Tailor" director Lee Won Suk, have been outspoken in their support of her natural beauty.
