Plastic surgery is not gender biased, yet when one speaks of going under the knife, we usually imagine females as the “patient” and seeker of beautifying procedures.
After all, seeking to enhance ones looks is seen as a purely feminine domain and as a male, to admit you are conscious of your physical appearance to the extent of seeking plastic surgery is to invite verbal taunts and risk being labelled vain.
Thankfully, society isn’t as closeted as it used to be and the rise of meterosexuals have made it ok for men to “beautify” themselves. Yet, is plastic surgery still a domain that is off limits to men?
Kim Minjun aka Jun. K Plastic Surgery Transformation
The K-pop boy band 2PM have proved otherwise, with most of their members having undergone 2PM plastic surgery.
Lead vocalist Kim Minjun, generally known by his stage name Jun. K, is one of the participants of 2PM plastic surgery.
For instance, there’s proof of his nose job in the before and after collage above.
While men might not be so vilified for having big fleshy noses like their female counterparts, big noses are nonetheless frowned upon if they’re ugly and too big for your face.
Jun-K has clearly got his broad nose bridge shaved down and the alars reshaped to be much narrower.
His new nose is reminiscent of a Roman statues’ and we have to say it makes him look much more appealing than before.
Nickchun Buck Horvejkul aka Nichkhun Plastic Surgery Transformation
Moving on to the next 2PM plastic surgery, we’ve got fellow group mate, Nichkhun.
Born Nickchun Buck Horvejkul, the Thai American singer, model and actor was scouted by a talent agent at the LA Korean Music Festival.
So did someone who was talent spotted have to undergo 2PM plastic surgery?
Well this picture doesn’t show any sign of 2PM plastic surgery. If anything, his eyes actually seem bigger pre debut.
Or perhaps he’s squinting from the sun in the after picture. Regardless, we know for sure Nichkhun is free from 2PM plastic surgery to his eyes.
While the previous 2PM plastic surgery could be classified under medical purposes, this one is purely for aesthetic reasons.
We’re talking about Asian rhinoplasty of course. While Western rhinoplasty involves shaving down the bones because they are too prominent, Asian rhinoplasty involves inserting an implant because there is not much height in the nose bridge.
As evidenced in the pictures above, Nichkhun has had this 2PM plastic surgery done to increase the height in his nose.
Does he look amazing? Definitely! Just ask this fan who got plastic surgery to look like Nichkhun.
Taecyeon Plastic Surgery Transformation
We continue this 2PM plastic surgery with 2PM’s main rapper Taecyeon.
The singer debuted as an actor in the Korean drama, Cinderella’s Sister and went on to become a main character in the KBS drama Dream High.
This heartthrob has been winning hearts ever since then. But there’s a catch.
This prince charming was once a frog if his pre debut pictures are to be believed.
Now we know aegyo sal is the domain of female pop stars but it seems like Taecyeon has jumped on the bandwagon and gotten himself some eye smiles.
These eye smiles are most prominent in young children, yet childhood photos show the singer lacking in this feature.
Now we see him with prominent love bands beneath his eyes, even though he is barely smiling in the photo above.
Well, looks like aegyo sal surgery is proving to be a feature that suits men to judging by the after photo!
Aegyo sal aside, Taecyeon’s other vanity point was his nose.
The guy obviously didn’t have the best looking nose as a kid, just take a look at the before photo above. Taecyeon had the typical flat Asian nose with a rather “piggy” looking tip.
Did puberty do him good or was it down to 2PM plastic surgery? We’re of the opinion it’s the latter as his nose bridge is ridiculously high for Asian standards.
Also, the tip of his nose has been made shapely. Instead of the nostrils only view he previously had, it is now hidden and better defined.
This 2PM plastic surgery has definitely turned Taecyeon from ugly frog to Prince Charming!
Jang Woo Young aka Wooyoung Plastic Surgery Transformation
The next K-pop heartthrob in line is Jang Woo Young, better known to fans as Wooyoung.
The lead vocalist and dancer was selected as a JYP trainee through MGoon’s JYP audtitions where he won first place against 5000 other candidates.
It’s clear Wooyoung was destined for stardom but did he always look like the hunk he is now?
Before and after pictures show Wooyoung to be pretty much the same person he was before.
But wait, what’s that? Do you notice how his eyes look slightly bigger in the after picture?
Although we acknowledge that Wooyuong still has single eyelids, his eyes have slightly improved in length.
We think the singer must have undergone epicanthoplasty to increase the horizontal length of his eyes.
With this 2PM plastic surgery, we can now see much more of his eye whites than before.
Lee Jun Ho aka Junho 2PM Plastic Surgery Transformation
The next 2PM plastic surgery member almost got kicked out of JYP Entertainment because of his attitude, and it was only because his mother begged JYP to give her son another chance that he was allowed to stay in the group.
If you didn’t know who we were talking about, it’s Junho, real name Lee Jun Ho.
Apparently Junho was constantly smug about winning “Superstar Survival”. It’s obvious Junho has since changed his ways.
Attitude change aside, did Junho undergo a physical change as well?
Bad attitude or not, one can’t deny Junho had a damn fine nose as a child and it has only improved with age, growing into a beautiful well defined nose.
We’d be the first to pinpoint any 2PM plastic surgery done, but as such Junho gets the pass from us.
Hwang Chansung aka Chansung Plastic Surgery Transformation
Our final hottie in the 2PM plastic surgery is Hwang Chansung, better known to fans as Chansung.
Before 2PM‘s debut, he acted in the sitcom “Unstoppable High Kick” so this superstar has been in the limelight for quite some time.
Naturally, we dug up old photos of him to decide if he’s gone under the knife or not! We’ll let the pictures do the talking.
Same eyes, same nose. Yep, Chansung is free from 2PM plastic surgery.
Let’s now take a look at 2PM’s incredible evolution as a group.
Has 2PM plastic surgery paved the way for other males to get plastic surgery and be open about it?
We’re not sure if the answer is clear yet, but we do think plastic surgery is a personal matter not up for discrimination by anyone.
