Korean pop groups debut and disband faster than you can say annyeonghaseyo. However, one group that took a break but is making a comeback is K-pop girl group Exceed in Dreaming (EXID).
The five member girl group consists of Solji, LE, Hani, Hyerin and Junghwa. With two new members added to the group, EXID is more than ready to recapture the hearts of their fans.
Question is, will the fans still recognize them after their EXID plastic surgery?
Heo Sol Ji aka Solji Plastic Surgery Transformation
Let’s begin with lead singer of the group Solji, born Heo Sol Ji.
Aside from becoming a fiery red head, what else is new about her? Is she free from EXID plastic surgery?
If you saw the picture above and somehow decided she looks better in the after picture, it’s not your fault.
Humans have been known to have a subconscious preference for slimmer faces, especially in females.
Well the one obviously much slimmer feature in the collage above would be Solji’s jawline. Her jaw was previously big and short, yet in the after picture we see her with an improved jawline that is slimmer and narrower.
The EXID plastic surgery done here was V line surgery, which shaves down the mandible bones to create a slimmer jawline.
Getting her jaw done isn’t the only EXID plastic surgery Solji got. It is said high cheekbones make a woman more attractive and judging by the before and after, Solji certainly looks winsome in the second photo.
All this was achieved with cheek augmentation which is performed on patients with flat, hypoplastic cheeks.
Malar and sub malar implants are inserted into the cheek area to create volume and depth at the right angle, resulting in the high cheekbone look that happens when someone smiles.
Ahn Nyo Jin aka LE Plastic Surgery Transformation
Ahn Hyo-jin who goes by the stage name LE is the main rapper of the group.
LE was the one who collaborated with Huh Gak for “Whenever You Play That Song”. She was part of underground group “Jiggy Fellaz” under name “Elly”.
Fan forums have yet to jump on LE and accuse her of EXID plastic surgery, probably because of a lack of childhood pictures floating around.
Or who knows, perhaps LE was always this attractive all along? Her “before and after” pictures show us someone who looks similar.
Well we will never know till we find proper visual evidence.
Ahn Hee Yeon aka Hani Plastic Surgery Transformation
Fellow group mate Ahn Hee Yeon aka Hani is too busy fielding sex scandal rumours to worry about being accused of EXID plastic surgery (for now). Though she came out to dispel her plastic surgery rumors.
The 22 year old lead vocalist is being accused of having an affair with a much older actor.
Yet in a show of solidarity, fans and her agency Yedang Entertainment have rallied to her support, calling such claims “ludicrous”.
Will they call our EXID plastic surgery assertions ludicrous if we have the photos to prove it?
Exhibit A proves Hani guilty of double eyelid surgery. Denials won’t make it in the face of irrefutable proof!
And proof we’ve got in the form of Hani’s pre debut picture, where she’s been photographed with less than wide eyes.
Now her eyes have become bigger, wider, longer, and we have no qualms about attributing this physical change to EXID plastic surgery in the form of blepharoplasty and lateral canthoplasty.
Then we have her nose.
Hani’s nose is flat throughout childhood, but boom! Puberty did her good. Or was that EXID plastic surgery?
We think Hani had a little help increasing the length and height of her nose with rhinoplasty. We only wish she’d tapered down the size of her tip as well!
If Lego ever needed a human face as their spokesperson, Hani circa 2000 would’ve been the perfect candidate.
She’s got the ultimate square face not dissimilar to a Lego block. Hani must have gotten the memo because her square jaw has morphed from a very stern U shape into the much desired V shape.
This she achieved with double jaw surgery, heavily marketed as V line surgery in Korea to play down the seriousness and sombreness of having your jaw bones shaved off and not being able to eat solid food for 2 weeks!
The sacrifice one makes in the name of beauty! Well, in Hani’s case, this dangerous EXID plastic surgery was definitely worth it!
Seo Hye Rin aka Hyerin Plastic Surgery Transformation
Hyerin, real name Seo Hye Rin is the vocalist and lead dancer of the group, and no wonder too. The star possesses a lithe frame that is the envy of many and has an equally attractive face to go with it.
We can’t help but wonder, how did one get so talented and aesthetically lucky? Is it au natural or EXID plastic surgery?
Unfortunately for Hyerin, she is more EXID plastic surgery than natural beauty. Her before eyes don’t tally with the after picture.
There she is with prominent aegyo sal but not so prominent double eyelids. In the after picture, she’s less prominent aegyo sal but much bigger eyes and prominent double eyelids achieved with blepharoplasty.
Well who cares if it’s fake, we’re just glad she just look like one of the cast from Chucky anymore.
Much like how Turnitin detects plagiarism, we detect EXID plastic surgery here!
It’s clear from the before and after photo above that Hyerin is guilty on all counts of EXID plastic surgery.
She’s obviously had a nose job done to fix the rather bulbous tip she used to have by having had her alars shaved down.
Also, the top of her nose used to be big as well. Hyerin had that fixed by shaving the bone and having a straight Silicone implant inserted to make it the slim nose you see it to be.
Park Jung Hwa Plastic Surgery Transformation
Former child star Junghwa, born Park Jung Hwa is now a member of EXID girl group. She previously acted in “Uprising of Wife” at a very young age.
It appears stardom has indeed sprinkled its sparkle on Junghwa as she has evolved from mere mortal to shooting meteorite within years.
We wouldn’t put EXID plastic surgery past her as survival is the name of the game and beauty is your main weapon.
Naturally, a Korean’s first stop on the beauty belt would be to fix her eyes. It’s just not the done thing to be seen with small single eyelids.
That demotes one to social pariah status in Korea. So blepharoplasty it is for Junghwa! And oh my what a transformation indeed.
She’s no longer confined to the realms of those who wear double eyelid tape to maintain that extra crease!
One other noticeable EXID plastic surgery here is Junghwa’s prominent Korean love bands, that is the eye pouches beneath her eyes.
This is a much desired feature in Korea and it’s not surprise that top Korean celebrities are flocking to get it.
The procedure is called aegyo sal but the real term for it is fat grafting where fat is taken from the abdomen or thighs and injected into that area.
Junghwa’s love bands are so prominent we think she might have overdone them a bit!
Of course, no K-pop plastic surgery is complete without getting your nose done.
Most celebrities like to claim their nose jobs are because of breathing complications and the likes, but honestly, do medical nose jobs also involve the drastic change of your nose for aesthetic reasons?
We think not! But we digress. Back to the topic, it seems like Junghwa has certainly had EXID plastic surgery to her nose.
That pretty schnoz of hers was achieved through Silicone implants and tiplasty. Her bridge is so well defined when compared to before.
What a change, but it’s a change we can get behind!
This EXID plastic surgery discussion is not over yet! We’re now going to review all the changes the group has undergone.
Having made a glorious comeback, we hope EXID remain as a girl group for a long time to come because we know their fans they’ve got a lot more musical tricks up their sleeves!
