The Korean model, Hong Yuh Reum, was featured on a Japanese TV special about plastic surgery recently, where she admitted Miranda Kerr was her inspiration for undergoing surgery in the first place.
On the show, she said of Kerr, “It really struck me when I first saw her in a magazine. She has a baby face but she’s very sexy. I knew I wanted to be like her!“
Even as the show focused primarily on the myriad dangers of plastic surgery up to and including death from surgical complications, Reum was damn near bubbling over with praise for the practice, attributing going under the knife to much of her current success as an international model. It probably helped that Reum seems to have undergone surgery sparingly and settled for a rough facsimile of her idol, while others have – less successfully – gone for more literal interpretations.
