Park Min Young, Before and After

By PSP Team


Updated on

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 are 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 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 get?

Let’s review some photos before and after she became famous.

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…

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 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.

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.

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?

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 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?

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.

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.

Yes, this woman doesn’t know how to age and I’m starting to wonder if facial fillers have anything to do with it.

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.

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 is true, then 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.
