Let Me In (“Me In” is a homonym for “beauty” in Korean) is a Korean reality TV series which features women and men with physical defects going under the knife to be transformed into someone presentable. This is done with the help of plastic surgeons, who each week operate one patient who is then revealed to great fanfare at the end of each episode. 

In episode 9 of “Let Me In”, the audience erupted in excitement when the newly transformed Kim Hee Eun was revealed.

In her late 30s, Kim Hee Eun was born with a birth mark on her right cheek caused by swollen blood vessels which causes discolouration. Growing up, the birthmark grew in size and deformed her upper lip and gums as well. Small purplish spots were also present across her right cheek and it made her face disfigured and unpleasant to look at.

Before she underwent plastic surgery, it was clear Kim was very conscious of her disfigurement. She had trouble socializing and difficulty finding a job. She was also crying when talking about her condition. As evidence of her self-consciousness about her disfigurement, during the interview, she was frequently seen covering the birthmark with her right hand.

She was thus selected by the doctors of the program to undergo a bimaxillary operation and other corrective jaw surgeries.

At the unveiling of her new face, everyone in the studio was shocked at the transformation. The host of the show, Hwang Shin-hye commented, “You look just like Yoo In-na [Korean female actor]!” and “You are like a new actress who has just debuted!”
