With so many K-pop girl groups in South Korea, it’s hard to stand out amongst the crowd. But one group that does stick out amongst the rest, not least because of their catchy music and 7 member group is After School.
This South Korean girl group formed by Pledis Entertainment in 2009 follows an admissions and graduation concept.
Right now, the current class of 2015 consists of Jungan, Uee, Raina, Nana, Lizzy, E-Young and Kaeun. But what everyone reading this would really like to know is what After School plastic surgery each member got.
Kim Jungah Plastic Surgery Transformation
Let’s begin our After School plastic surgery analysis with the main vocalist and dancer of the group Kim Jungah aka Jungah.
Following the graduation of Kahi in 2012, Jungah was chosen to be the new leader of the group, no doubt for her amazing vocals, slick dance moves and killer looks.
But did Jungah always look this good or did a little After School plastic surgery have something to do with it?
Based on the before and after picture above, we have reason to suspect Jungah has had a little After School plastic surgery help in the nose department.
See how her nose goes from big and bulky to sharp and shapely? How do you think she got it?
With After School plastic surgery of course. Jungah had her surgeon reshape the tip in a nose tip surgery, shave down the alars with an alarplasty procedure and have a Silicone implant inserted to increase its height.
Our next After School plastic surgery will be obvious to long time readers. Well observant ones at least.
There are two possible surgeries in this picture. From what we can tell, it looks like Jungah has had V line surgery and a chin augmentation.
Her jaw was large, square and asymmetrical in the first picture but the second picture shows her with a tapered down jawline that culminates in a nice V shape at the end.
The reason we think she had a chin implant is because the surface area of her chin was small in the first picture, but the second picture shows her with more real estate in that area, proving she might have had genioplasty, where a Gore-Tex implant is inserted to elongate the chin and add length to an otherwise short face.
Kim Yu Jin aka Uee Plastic Surgery Transformation
Up next in the After School plastic surgery discussion is Kim Yu-jin, better known by her stage name Uee.
The singer’s first appearance with the group was in 2009 and she has since acted in various television dramas which is only natural given her degree in theatre and drama from Sungkyunkwan University.
Back in 2012, the star was entangled in a web of controversy when she sued her former plastic surgeon for using her photos to promote his services.
As such, there is no doubt that Uee has had After School plastic surgery.
Both photos above show a belly baring Uee, the only difference being (aside from her outfits) that one shows off a toned mid riff whereas the other one shows someone with a flabby muffin top belly.
To be honest, the before picture isn’t exactly an obesity 911 but in celebrity circles having that amount of tummy fat is akin to career suicide.
Of course her current slim physique could be attributed to diet or exercise, but being a celebrity with access to the best beauty treatments and surgeons, we think Uee might have taken the easier route via liposuction.
This procedure works by removing fat from the designated area using a suction. Tiny cannulas are inserted into the skin to target the fat deposits.
This After School plastic surgery must have worked because Uee has gone from flab to fab and she knows it!
Having dealt with her flab successfully, Uee probably felt brave to undergo After School plastic surgery for her nose as well.
The before picture shows her with an ugly short nose and a big tip. In the after picture, she’s spotting a much higher nasal bridge via rhinoplasty, and while her tip remains bulky, it is slightly raised as well.
It appears that Uee did not just stop at her nose as she’s had her eyes reshaped too. As per usual, it’s not surprising Uee has had blepharoplasty to remedy the problem of having single eyelids.
Her uneven eyelids made her eyes appear asymmetrical but post-surgery, she appears to have more symmetrical eyes.
We also think she’s cut the inner corners of her eyes through epicanthoplasty as we can see more of the eye whites than before. This After School plastic surgery has sent Uee’s looks from a 4 to a solid 9.
Noh Yiyoung aka E-young Plastic Surgery Transformation
Multi talented Noh Yiyoung, better known as E-young makes up the fourth member of the group. E-young plays the guitar, electric guitar, bass, drums, piano, flute & cello and has won countless awards for singing, dancing, and cello playing.
But talent is not enough to go far in the entertainment industry. You need to be gorgeous too and E-young has achieved that through After School plastic surgery.
This before and after picture collage shows E-young pre debut and post debut.
E-young had a lovely nose to begin with and to be honest, we didn’t see a need to alter it as it was narrow, didn’t have such a bulky tip and had enough height for her face.
E-young’s current altered nose is reminiscent of a Michael Jackson nose job. The bridge and the dorsum look unnaturally pinched and too narrow and high while the tip is so pinched it looks more like a bird’s beak than a nose.
We know convex is better than concave when it comes to noses but maybe this nose job got a little too convex for our liking.
Lee Kaeun Plastic Surgery Transformation
Lee Kaeun better known as Kaeun is the maknae of the group but this does not let her off the hook from suspicion of After School plastic surgery.
The singer just turned 20 and her facial features still have an opportunity to change and develop if she doesn’t do anything to them. Let’s check out if she’s had any After School plastic surgery or not.
Judging from the pictures above, it seems as if Kaeun has maintained the same eyes, nose and facial structure from her pre debut days till now.
Perhaps we’ll be writing a feature on her in the future if she does decide to fix her face but for now, she’s clear of After School plastic surgery!
Oh Hye-rin aka Raina Plastic Surgery Transformation
Oh Hye-rin better known by her stage name Raina, is the main vocalist of South Korean girl group After School.
Raina debuted with the group in November 2009 following the release of the group’s second single, “Because of You”.
You’d think juggling a career as a lead singer in two pop acts would be too much to handle but Raina seems to be doing just find.
The singer has come a long way since her pre debut days and we’ve got the pictures to prove it!
The before and after collage above makes it very obvious Raina has done something to her eyes.
How does one go from small, squinty, tiny, barely open eyes to something that is big, wide and round without any effort?
The not surprising answer is After School plastic surgery of course. Raina had blepharoplasty and epicanthoplasty to get double eyelids and enlarge the surface area of her eye whites.
Out of all the After School members, we can honestly say Rania needed this the most!
Having achieved success with her eyes, Raina must have decided to get a nose job as well. Her nose is severely lacking in height and length while oversized in the tip area.
Raina had her nose bridge increased and narrowed down. She also had nasal wing reduction, as shown by the prominent crease on her alar where extensive alar shaving has been done.
This After School plastic surgery has certainly helped Raina elevate her looks to K-pop idol material.
Im Jin-Ah aka Nana Plastic Surgery Transformation
We move on to fellow group mate Im Jin-Ah, better known as Nana to fans. Before her debut as a member of After School, Nana was a participant in the 2009 Asia Pacific Super Model Contest.
Nana is a licensed makeup artist and also has a membership at the Makeup Artists Association. With such extensive beauty knowledge, we’re sure Nana is always red carpet ready.
But there was a time during her pre debut days when this was not always the case, and instead of makeup, Nana might have turned to After School plastic surgery instead.
She may have gone blonde in both pictures, but it’s clear Nana’s eyes have been altered with After School plastic surgery.
Nana has the typical Korean eyes, small, narrow, single eyelids. Fast forward to her post debut days and she’s suddenly got bigger, wider more shapely eyes.
We can attribute this transformation to blepharoplasty and epicanthoplasty, surgeries which have changed the way Nana’s eyes look.
Of course, just like Raina, Nana also followed suit in the nose job department.
Her nose is clearly short with a bulky tip in the before picture, but the after picture shows her with a slim, narrow nose instead.
That isn’t the only thing Nana has lengthened with After School plastic surgery as you’ll find out below.
Unlike Raina, Nana didn’t stop at the K-pop combo pack. Oh no. She went a step further in the After School plastic surgery and had her jaw done as well.
Nana had a what you would call a typical Korean square jaw, where her mandibular bones were very prominent and making the lower half of her face look big.
Nana has had 3D square jaw reduction to reduce the size of her jaw and get rid of the overly angular look.
As we can see, Nana’s angular jawline has been reduced and there appears to be a seamless line that connects her jaw to the rest of her face.
Park Soo-Yang aka Lizzy Plastic Surgery Transformation
Next up in the After School plastic surgery analysis is final member of the group Lizzy, born Park Soo-young.
She is a member of the girl group After School and its sub-unit Orange Caramel. She debuted with After School in 2010 with the release of their third single, “Bang!”, and debuted as a solo singer in 2015 with “Not An Easy Girl”.
She has acted in films and television shows. Lizzy has shown that she can accomplish whatever she sets her heart out to do and this a go getter attitude extends to After School plastic surgery as well.
We can see from the pictures above that Lizzy, just like her other group mates has had something done to her eyes.
No matter how wide you open your eyes when taking photos, your eyes will never be as big as how they are in the after photo.
At least not if you are born with ridiculously small eyes like Lizzy. She’s done blepharoplasty as well as corner cutting to achieve the shape and size she has today.
With a pre debut nose like that, we’re not surprised Lizzy’s before nose wasn’t doing her any favours on the beauty front so it’s only natural she had After School plastic surgery to get it fixed.
With rhinoplasty, she managed to tone down her bulbous tip and increase nasal height and length in her bridge. This has given her much better facial harmony compared to before.
Let’s take a look at the After School Plastic Surgery Transformation…
Now that we’ve dissected each After School plastic surgery, let’s take a look at their “graduation” from pre debut to debutantes of the K-pop industry.
Regardless of how they look, we know the real fans of After School appreciate them for their music and talent more than their outer appearance. (Or so we like to think)
