Plastic Surgey in K-Pop: SNSD versus MM
I’m glad to say that I’ve been able to acquire a pretty big circle of friends that are into K-Pop(my J-Pop listener friends list has much filling to be done however). With those friends, the topic of Morning Musume versus SNSD was going to arise one day. When it eventually did, it was a clash of hate comments, member burning, and insulting of the opposite group. I of course defended Morning Musume and from a very honest point of view: Morning Musume is naturally more beautiful than Girls’ Generation.
We all know K-Pop is an orgy of autotune, electronic music, make up and plastic surgery. The same cannot be said about J-Pop(except in some cases like Ayu and Kumi), especially about Momusu.
I begin this comparison with SNSD before and after pics. Let’s face it, the girls right now are all pretty gorgeous(minus Hyoyeon, she will always be butt ugly) but back in the day, I’m talking pre-debut and early debut, the girls were quite fug.
Note: I’m not doing this to hate on K-Pop. You should all know that I’m a huge fan of it. I do it because I don’t want SNSD fans saying that they are prettier than Momusu. If Momusu went through surgery, than they’d out-beauty SNSD by 100%. Without it, they are already prettier.
Recognize her? That there is SNSD’s Tiffany before debut. Some change she’s gone through compared to what she is now am i rite? I don’t think anyone can honestly say that only make up+diet+hairstyle can make her look like this.
Again, not because of plastic surgery am I going to start hating on K-Pop. The infectious music is what I’m there for, not SNSD stans saying that Momusu is just as fake. Of course, a bigger SNSD fan can make a post totally opposite to this, targeting Momusu but I’m doing this out of total honesty and not favoritism.
If it isn’t other than that bitch Jessica(yea, bitch, just like Sayu is). I think her change has been the most drastic. She was clearly very fug back then and is now a total beauty. Anyone who claims she is natural is crazy.
Here they are in some interview for their very first release “Into The New World”. As you can see, they are a lot different than how they look now. It seems that even after they debuted, the plastic surgeries still happened. Seohyun(top right) looks nothing less than a typical azn kid. Yoona(bottom, second to the right) looks like she has down syndrome, Sooyoung(bottom, second to the left) looks completely different. It seems like her head gets smaller by the day. And Tiffany of course with her horse face.
Incomparable to the beauties they are now(except hyo, ofc)
Now let’s look at the Momusu side of things. Unlike K-Pop stars, J-Music groups tend to be more natural. This includes all of H!P. As for AKB48, I’m not so sure.
I’m going to be ignoring 8th generation since they’ve only a few years in the group. Although you can see that Mitsui Aika looks totally natural from before she joined until today(minus new hair and no braces).
Takahashi Ai. That looks like a 7 year difference and she looks exactly the same, minus new hair and transforming into a beautiful young lady. Same nose, same eyes, same face in general.
The self indulged bitch, Sayumi. Even though I hate her guts, I gotta admit that she is amazingly beautiful. Definitely a top 3 most beautiful Momusu member. That was her back in 2004 and her now in 2010. THAT’S 6 YEARS PEOPLE! Same face and even same hair!!! Can’t get more natural than Sayumi.
Now what if some people say that she got surgery before debuting? Well, we’ve seen them during their auditions, plus, what types of parents would let their 13/14/15 year old daughters get plastic surgery, really?
Now I know that plastic surgery is a common thing in South Korea. That doesn’t bother me at all. What bothers me is that SNSD/K-Pop stans start saying that Momusu is just as plastic as SNSD. They only do it as a defense mechanism since both sides know that Momusu is totally natural. If their that ashamed of loving a plastic group, than they shouldn’t be fans to begin with.
Lastly, a picture of Momusu around 3 years ago, when SNSD debuted(August 2, 2007) and comparing them to how they look now.
That’s them in a promo for Onna ni Sachi Are(released July 25, 2007, a month before SNSD’s debut). As you can see, the only differences from then and now are hairstyle differences.
And present day Momusu on the cover of their latest single single, 3 years later after ONSA.
I’m not targeting SNSD fans in general, I have no problems with them. I really like SNSD’s music and they have fun personalities and are all very pretty. My problem are SNSD fans that say that they are prettier/hotter/more beautiful than Morning Musume. Morning Musume, without plastic surgery as they are now, are already prettier than SNSD. Now if undid all the plastic surgery on SNSD, who would really be the ugly ones?
In the end, the only group that is allowed to be “plastic” is Perfume~
