The recent episode of ‘Let Me In 3‘ featured a guest who had been bullied “internationally” for her unfortunate looks and, who thanks to plastic surgery, underwent a miraculous transformation into a celebrity.
The guest, Shim Yura, was introduced as a very intelligent woman who was accepted into prestigious Ivy League universities including Harvard, Princeton, and Columbia. She majored in marketing from the college of her choice. However, she was unhappy because she suffered due to her ugly features.
While living in the USA she was often called “the Ugly Korean.” People asked her whether all Koreans were “as ugly as she was.” Due to her protruding chin and hunched posture she was called an “old hag.” Even during the post-grad job search, her image was mentioned as a factor in rejecting her in companies.
The doctors of the show were sympathetic to her story and chose her as their next project. When she stepped into the studio after her makeover, the audience was speechless from the transformation. She was compared to Girls Generation’s Jessica, with long flowy hair to match. Even her demeanor had changed from cloudy and depressing to a more cheerful character.
Netizens commented, “It must be a new life for her,” “I bet it wasn’t easy to live abroad and be bullied so,” “It must be great,” “I really can’t tell it’s her!”
