Yuri Plastic Surgery
As with all members of SNSD (and let’s face it, most idols in SM), Yuri did not escape the plastic surgeon’s knife. To be fair, her work seems to be a bit more subtle than some of the others in the group.
To start with, it is quite certain that Yuri had double eyelid surgery. Her eyes are a lot wider now than they were in the past. The scars from the surgery have healed up very well though, to the point where they are barely noticeable, especially when she wears make up. In this video, you can barely see the scarring at all until the very end where she smiles and the lines appear (these look like stitch lines rather than regular eyelid folds).
I suspect she may also have had a slight nose job, although if this is true, the surgeon did a really good job because it’s not obvious at all. I’m on the fence about this one, it might be that her nose is actually natural. This would be extremely rare in a group like SNSD!
