Today’s highlight covers a South Korean girl who spent Rs 48 lakh to look exactly like Kim Kardashian. She underwent a couple of surgeries to get the desired look. Before getting into the result of her long-wished celebrity look, let’s get into some details of the case.
On Friday, a South Korean woman revealed that she spent a whooping amount of Rs 48 lakh, which accounts for approx. 60K USD on a series of cosmetic surgeries to look like the television star Kim Kardashian.
The South Korean girl named Cherrie Lee is on the top of the headlines today after revealing the details of her cosmetic surgeries and the amount she paid for them. A total of fifteen surgeries took place during the transition, that included some body surgeries along with face surgeries. Cherrie is a part-time English teacher whose birth name is Hanbyeol. At the age of 28, she idolizes the American reality show star and believes that she is ‘the most beautiful woman in the world’.
The 15 surgeries that Cherrie underwent include three Brazilian butt lifts, two breast augmentations, a cheekbone surgery, uncountable facial surgeries, and treatments. All this has been happening ever since she was 20 years old. After conversations and interviews, she revealed that people are not able to recognize her South Korean features. In an interview, she said, “Kim has always been an inspiration to me and she’s the most beautiful woman in the world, in my eyes. I actually look like a completely different person now to before – I look Western, and some of my Korean family don’t even recognise me anymore.”
Now, she has stopped the transition process and is planning not to undergo any further surgeries. According to her, she has achieved the look that she always desired – the Kim Kardashian look. Cherrie does not regret her decision to take up surgeries for transformation. All she does is regret why didn’t she choose it sooner. She also stated that she got addicted to surgeries. The positive charge in her body kept her going despite all the pain that she felt.
The first surgery that she went through was at the age of 20, which was done with the purpose of doubling her eyelids. She targeted not only the look of Kim Kardashian but also her physique and went for surgeries for breasts and butts. Her new look is almost unrecognizable to her close friends and relatives. Reportedly, she received monetary help for this transformational journey from her parents, who have been supportive throughout the process and helped her. In the last three years, Lee received cheekbone surgery, a nose job, two rounds of buccal fat removal, and a double chin reduction.
Besides all this, she admits that she does not look exactly like Kim Kardashian yet, but her overall vibe has begun to resemble her.
In July, we heard about Jennifer Pamplona, the Brazilian model who spent more than crores on such cosmetic surgeries to look like the American star Kim Kardashian. Roughly, it amounted to 120,000 USD to transition back to her former appearance. Jennifer has worked with big brands like Versace in her modeling career. She underwent more than 40 cosmetic surgeries over the period of 12 years to replicate Kim Kardashian.
