Former Lovelyz Member Mijoo Shocks Fans By Revealing An Insecurity She Wants To Change With Plastic Surgery

Fans are protesting against the idea.

Though former Lovelyz member Mijoo wasn’t one of the “official” visuals of the group, she certainly could have been with how gorgeous she is.

If I had a month to spare, I’d get my nose done. — Mijoo

Unsurprisingly, netizens were quick to respond to her confession, and here is what some of them had to say about it.

“If you got any prettier, I don’t think we could handle it”

“It’d be better if she didn’t get anything done”

“You’re pretty without it!!!”

“How much prettier do you want to be…”

“Mijoo-ya, you’ll regret it… you don’t need it, you’re already past the point of pretty!!”

“No… you are perfect as you are”

Visually analyzed imageThere’s no doubt that fans of Mijoo think she’s absolutely perfect without any work done! You can watch the trailer for the episode of Hangout With Yoo below, and Mijoo talks about the procedure around 0:30.
