There were discussions and comparisons to Kim Twae Hee when she first started off in “Three Brothers”.
Korean surgeons used the Golden Ratio of 1:1:1 as the perfect ratio for a beautiful face. So what does that mean?
That means from the top of the forehead to the eyebrows, from the eyebrows to the tip of the nose and from the nose to the chin should all be in equal proportion.
So why did a lot of users doubt that Oh Ji-Eun had plastic surgery done? One because her looks did change since she debuted and secondly she has the perfect 1 : 1 : 1 face.
