South Korean actress and model Park Min Young earned her breakthrough role as the girl who pretended to be a boy in the television series, “Sungkyunkwan Scandal.” Her beauty and acting talent captivated the audience which led her to more roles in K dramas.
The beautiful Korean star further sealed her success after grabbing a part in the Netflix series, “Busted.” But as Min Young’s popularity continues to rise, the plastic surgery rumors would not die down.
Some fans believe Min Young had eyelid surgery to make her face look more attractive. In fact, her eyes are one of her most gorgeous features and envied by many young girls. They wanted to learn Park’s beauty secrets and how she enhances her features with makeup and cosmetics.
Min Young’s followers also suspect that she had a nose job early on to improve her appearance. Some people think that she might have also gotten procedures on her boobs and butt to boost her career. After all, Min Young had no qualms about doing a revealing bathing scene in “Ja Myung Go” because she had the body for it.
No doubt, Park has a pretty face and a hot body, but has she had help from plastic surgeons, or is she all natural?
Let’s find out!
Before and After Photos
The fact that she has changed so much physically, fans say Min Young has undergone a lot of cosmetic surgery. But what type of procedures did she really get?
Let’s review some photos before and after she became famous.
Park during childhood
As a little girl, Min Young had long hair and small eyes. Does it look like she has a typical Korean face? Then this is perhaps why she got plastic surgery, later on, to stand out and not be “typical.” What do you think?
Here’s Min Young in her school uniform and she definitely looks miles different then. She had a chubby face shape that took away the definition on her jawbones. She also had single eyelids that didn’t seem to convey any expressions.
This appearance, however, would change in a couple of years…
Park as a teenager
As a teen, Min Young lost weight and became remarkably pretty. She also had bigger eyes, which fans say was the result of double eyelid surgery. This photo was taken pre-debut.
Min Young also demonstrated her refreshing sense of style with her head wrapped in a bandana.
Park in 2005
Park landed her first TV role in the drama series “High Kick!” She exuded a student look with her super straight hairstyle, even though she was already in her 20s.
At this point, there are no other noticeable changes in her face. Her nose shape is similar to her younger self — flat and round. For us, this means no rhinoplasty…yet.
Park in 2007
With the release of “I Am Sam” a few years later, Park Min Young appeared with a pointier nose tip and a thinner nasal bridge. The young star might have finally gotten a nose job and the improvement complemented her beady eyes really well.
You can also see some subtle changes to her face shape. Her jawline and chin appear sharper so you’d have to wonder whether she’s had a little chiseling done here. Not only that, but her lips also appear plumper. We don’t think it’s lip injections, but perhaps some type of lip surgery.
Park in 2010
With the release of “Sungkyunkwan Scandal,” Min Young’s star power has been sealed. She looks so naturally fresh in this photo with her barely-there makeup, scruffy eyebrows, faint lipstick and subtle stud earrings.
Apart from her cosmetically-enhanced and beautiful nose, we think Min Young might’ve had botox to define her cheeks too. Some fans argue, however, that it’s just baby fat.
What are your thoughts?
Park in 2011
A 25-year-old Min Young reunited with Lee Min Ho in the hit series “City Hunter.” Because she appeared to have a slimmer jawline and sharper chin, people suspected she definitely had jaw reduction surgery. It seems to us that she had no chin implant though.

With her famous face, Min Young also continued to model and be a brand ambassador for fashion brands. This photoshoot showed off not just her fake tattoo but also her shapely long legs. With her svelte body shape, fans think Min Young had liposuction and her bum shape suggested she might’ve had butt implants.
Do you think she naturally achieved this sexy body with a good diet and workout? It’s been reported that the star likes to do Pilates, so perhaps that’s how she keeps her figure fit and trim.
Park in 2015
Park looked so cute in this short hairstyle.
Her beautiful smile hints that she might have gotten veneers but then again, we have not seen photos of the star wearing braces. Did she ever have problems with how her teeth looked?
Park in 2017
Min Young wowed everyone at the Asia Artist Awards with her cleavage-revealing dress. She exuded a sexy elegant appeal in this lacy white gown.
With her ample chest, it’s not hard to see why people think the actress had a boob job, but her fuller breasts definitely suited her body type.
If we’re to guess, she has a 34C bra size.
Park in 2018
Min-young transformed her look yet again when she dyed her long hair brown. She looks gorgeous in this photo announcing her latest project with Park Seo Joon in “What’s Wrong with Secretary Kim.”
We’re sure Min Young maintains a bright, porcelain-looking skin with a solid skincare routine but it could be in her genes too.
Park in 2020
In case you didn’t know, the actress currently has her own Youtube Channel. Here is a screenshot from one of her latest videos.
Can you believe she is 34 years old?
She looks 20.
What did Park Min Young say about plastic surgery?
During an interview with Sports Chosun, Min Young confirmed that she had plastic surgery in junior high school, with her mother’s blessing.
I got double eyelid surgery in junior high school. My mom let me get it so I could become prettier. I also got my nose done, but that’s only because my nose was crooked during junior high.
And this was what the star had to say about her beauty imperfections:
I have a lot of things I don’t like about my face, such as my large forehead and chubby cheeks, but acting got a lot easier once I let all of that go.

While it is not unusual for famous Korean stars to be the subject of plastic surgeries, Min Young sets herself apart by actually admitting it. She is not shy to admit that it was a career move.
She confirmed her nose job and eye surgery to the public but has yet to discuss if she had breast implants. We speculate that her perfectly shaped boob size had some help and if this true, we don’t blame her.
South Korea’s movie industry is just as competitive as Hollywood. Whether her beauty is real or fake, she is definitely a success story.
