On the recent airing of ‘Heard It Through the Grapevine’, singer Lee Ji Hye talked about her past controversy on breast augmentation.
In the past, Lee Ji Hye suffered from rumors that said she had undergone breast augmentation surgery. In order to prove it wrong, she revealed that her label forced her to hold a press conference only wearing a bikini.
Lee Ji Hye said, “My label CEO told me to provide justification to stop the controversy, but he didn’t even show up that day. Now that I think about it, I think it was aiming for noise marketing because it was when an album was released.”
She continued, “I don’t think I can ever do it now if anyone tells me to, but back then I was so young, I just thought I had to do it no matter what.” She also revealed the reason she has her arms up high in most photos, and explained, “Do they know if you have undergone surgery or not if you wear a bikini? (Probably not) That’s why I lifted my arms up, because back then a lot of the breast augmentation was done through the armpits.”
