Cha Eun Woo is in the serious business of stealing hearts—not that we’re complaining. It will not take much to fall in love with this rising star’s picture-perfect visual, charismatic voice, and impressive acting skills, as we’ve seen in Hit the Top and My ID is Gangnam Beauty. For sure his upcoming show True Beauty will have us glued to our screens as well.
As a matter of fact, his too-good-to-be-true visual, has led Eun Woo to be labeled as “Genius Face” by the media. But did you know that the actor has never gone under the knife? Not that plastic surgery should be frowned upon! Like we always say, “your body, your choice!” But it’s because of his unbelievably flawless looks that has made people wonder if he’s ever tweaked any of his facial features. However, this TikTok-famous plastic surgeon is here to prove doubters with a breakdown of the actor’s natural handsomeness.
Dr. Charles S. Lee, MD, FACS who is also known as @drlee90210 on TikTok with a whopping 221.3k followers, is an American Board of Plastic Surgery and American Board of Otolaryngology certified plastic surgeon based in Beverly Hills. If his videos haven’t already landed on your “For You” page yet, he is known for his “Celebrity Plastic Surgery Secret” series—a 15-second video wherein he speculates the possible surgical procedures that celebrities and artists have undergone throughout the years.
One of his latest uploads is on Cha Eun Woo, and the video has garnered 6.9 million views and counting because of Dr. Lee’s controversial comments. “I notice that this man’s face is perfect,” he states in the video and goes on to say exactly how unbelievably symmetrical it is from all angles.
“I searched through his childhood photos and he was just born perfect,” Dr. Lee continues and ends his video saying, “Any more people born like this and I’m out of business!”
To put this into context, symmetry has a lot to do with our perception of beauty. Though the standards for what we deem “attractive” are subjective, there is such a thing as “Evolutionary Advantage Theory”, according to molecular biologist Dr. Nathan Lents in an article in Psychology Today. This means that consciously or unconsciously, we look at individuals who are blemishless and with perfectly symmetrical features to be a bearer of good genes, someone in perfect health, and a cut above the rest. Guess Eun Woo’s “Genius Face” nickname really fits him to a T.
