With her recent changes in appearances, actress Shin Se Kyung was making headlines with plastic surgery rumors. However her agency, Namoo Actors has officially addressed the rumors.
A representative of the company stated to local media Newsen, “She did not get plastic surgery. She underwent procedures to remove scars on her face. There are scars on both of her cheeks. She underwent surgical scar removal procedures during her time off.”
He continued, “The scars on both her cheeks showed up on HD TV. It was a very complicated procedure to get rid of the scars, much more complicated than getting a laser procedure. They had to cut through her skin. Her face swelled, which is why it appeared very full.” He added, “The scars were very deep. No matter what she did, they would always appear on screen. Even when she auditioned as a kid, she was turned down because of her scar. It wasn’t something that could have been easily removed through a laser procedure. She’s been pushing it off and off, and just recently, got it done.”
The representative concluded, “It hasn’t been long since she got the procedure. Had she gotten plastic surgery during her break, we wouldn’t have shot a CF or agreed to the interview with ‘Entertainment Relay.’”
