Lee Dong Wook is a South Korean actor. He made his acting debut in 1999 but had his breakthrough with the 2005 romantic comedy My Girl. You may have also seen him in other roles in other shows such as La Dolce Vita, Partner, Scent of A Woman, Wild Romance, The Fugitive of Joseon, and Hotel King.
However, you may know him best for his role in Goblin: The Lonely and Great God. At his current age of 35 years old, he has accomplished many things, and his image plays a great role in that.
But is plastic surgery to thank for all the craze over his handsome looks? In this article, we’ll be finding out just what he did in order to achieve such an iconic image.
Lee Dong Wook’s Nose Job
A nose job is one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures, and not just in South Korea. People go through this procedure in order to redefine the shape of their nose, most often with the goal of making their nose into the ideal shape.
Lee Dong Wook’s old images show a slightly different nose than what he has today. If you compare his before and after pictures yourself, then you’ll see what we’re talking about here. However, it takes a keen eye to notice the difference.
Before, Lee Dong Wook had a good-looking nose. Seems a bit weird that he still wanted to change it, right? Well, we do suspect that he did get a nose job at some point in his career. If you look closely, his nose became a little bit thinner and sharper than before. This change greatly improved his looks, even if it’s just a small difference.
Lee Dong Wook’s Double Eyelid Surgery
Lee Dong Wook’s old pictures show him with single eyelids only as expected, since many South Koreans only have single eyelids. However, at some point, he got the double eyelid surgery which turned out to be the best choice he made for both his image and his career.
Lee Dong Wook has double eyelids today and they make him look more expressive and a better actor. Moreover, the double eyelids make him look less Korean and more of a Filipino or Spanish looking man.
Lee Dong Wook plastic surgery is quite minimal considering South Korean standards, but it did cause a great change to his face. However, we are not complaining at all. This change made him a hundred times more handsome than before, which is surely good for his future endeavors and roles.
Family and Personal Life
On an interview before for the Goblin cast, Lee Dong Wook said that his personal life is pretty average. When he’s not on tapings, he would wake up at 10:00 and then have breakfast. He’d go work out with his manager afterwards then will either have a late lunch or an early dinner.
Lee Dong Wook’s younger sister appeared in “Roomate” where she talked about her brother’s troubles growing up in their family.
She said that her brother supported their family financially after his first debut as an actor in high school. Her younger sister admitted that she was jealous of Dong Wook growing up. Lee Dong Wook’s family seems the actor as a hardworking and dependable oldest son.
