“Unpretty Rapstar” Jessi revealed that she regrets having had plastic surgery since arriving in Korea on KBS2’s “Happy Together 3.”
On the April 2 broadcast of the variety show’s “MC special,” guests were invited based on MC recommendation. Suzy, Seo Woo, and Jessi were recommended by Kim Shin Young, Yoo Jae Suk, and Park Myung Soo, while guests Yoo Seung Ok and Choi Hyun Suk were recommended by Park Mi Sun and Jo Sae Ho, respectively.
After fellow guest Yoo Seung Ok disclosed that she has had liposuction and eyelid surgery, Jessi made the revelation that she too had cosmetic surgery after her arrival in Korea. “I’ve also done it,” she said. “But I regret it.”
She also discussed some difficulties adjusting to Korean culture, saying, “I made a mixtape when I was 19 years old and sent it to an agency, which is how I got an audition and ultimately debuted as a singer. But when I first came, I had a hard time adjusting to the extremely polite culture. I thought I should bow at a 90 degree angle when I met someone,” she explained. “So, I would say, ‘nice to meet you, I’m Jessica Ho,’ and do a 90 degree bow.”
Then, after explaining that her Korean name is actually Ho Hyun Joo, Seo Woo suddenly chimed in, saying, “Mine is Kim Moon Joo,” which drew laughter from everyone.
