BTOB’s Yook Sungjae Shares Beauty Tips He Got From His Mom
On the March 8 episode of the SBS reality show, Yook Sungjae joined the panel of celebrity moms in the studio as a special MC.
While watching footage of actor Kim Hyung Mook going about his very strict diet and exercise regimen at home, MC Shin Dong Yup turned to Yook Sungjae and asked, “I heard that you have your own beautician who helped make you look this good.”
The BTOB member replied, “I do have a beautician. It’s my mom. Ever since I was young, my mom told me that I need to take good care of my skin. She’d prepare rice water for me and tell me to wash my face with it. She said it has a brightening effect.”
“I don’t do much in terms of skin care,” Yook Sungjae went on to explain. “I typically just wash my face with water, and I’m not very diligent about applying lotion. But my mom will bring me facial masks and insist on applying them to my face, saying I need to use them.”
The idol-turned-actor continued, “My complex is the way my cheekbones protrude on the sides of my face. So in order to help me, my mom even told me to lie down with the side of my face flat on a hardcover book. She would always bring me books so I could lie down on them.”
Super Junior’s Kim Heechul‘s mom commented with a laugh, “What a good son. He’s actually listening to her and doing everything she says. My son would never do that [even if I asked].”
The full episode of “My Ugly Duckling” will soon be available with English subtitles on Viki. In the meantime, catch up on last week’s episode of the show below!
