"After the surgery, my face broke my heart."

Jessi is one of those Korean celebrities who have always been vocal and confident, which is why she's loved by her fans. However, there was a time when she cried because of how she looked after going under the knife.

In an episode of MBC's Radio Star, the Korean solo artist opened up about getting plastic surgery and admitted that she had rhinoplasty and double eyelid surgery done. According to her, she looked like a "monster" after the procedures. "After the surgery, my face broke my heart. I instantly asked the surgeon to get rid of the stitches. After about a year, the swelling naturally settled down. Some asked me whether I had another surgery to tone down the swelling."

In a separate interview, Jessi explained more about the surgery. The K-pop star said that she did it when she arrived in South Korea (ICYDK, Jessi was born in New York and raised in New Jersey before making the big move).

Years after her revelation, Jessi shared in an episode of SBS' funE that she's now satisfied with her appearance sans the fillers. "I really like this. I've tried what I'm doing now, I've taken it out, and this is good. I can't be perfect."
