Has Kim Kun Hee Done Plastic Surgery?

A Singer Allegedly Made Fun Of Kim Kun Hee Looks

On February 11, 2022, South Korean musician An Chi-hwan released a rock track called Lady Who Looks like Michael Jackson, allegedly satirizing Kim Keon-hee for her plastic surgeries.

The song caused the then-presidential hopeful and the main opposition People Power Party (PPP) candidate, Yoon Suk-yeol, to fume with anger as it mocked his wife.

Yoon told reporters on February 14 that he felt sorry for his wife and that his political Campaign was making her suffer a lot in unworthy attacks. 

He later criticized the musician for “crossing certain lines that even freedom of expression should take as common sense” and making an uncalled-for attack, arousing misogyny. 

The current president added that it was also offensive to Jackson, whom he called “a great musician who wholeheartedly took care of people across the world.”

The musician responded on February 15 by stating that song was supposed to satire Choi Soon-sil, the woman known as the behind-the-curtains mastermind leading to the 2016 South Korean political scandal.

A Chi-hwan added that it was up to listeners to evaluate and interpret it, saying he accepted all interpretations and criticisms.

Does The First Lady of South Korea Have A Child With Her Husband?

Kim and Yoon, who have been married for ten years, are yet to be blessed with a kid. Nevertheless, they live happy lives, focusing on their respective careers and family.

Kim married the current South Korean president Yoon Suk-yeol in 2012. She became the First Lady upon Yoon’s election as president on March 10, 2022.

Kim has stated that she prefers the term “president’s spouse” to the first lady. According to The Korea Herald, Kim has reportedly had at least one miscarriage.

Democratic Party’s rep. once came under scrutiny after he said that Kim Hye-gyeong, wife of another presidential candidate Lee Jae-Myung, was more suitable for the first lady because she had “human children.”

The Executive director of Lee’s Campaign compared Kim Hye-gyeong, “the mother of two children,” with Kim Kun-hee, “the mother of Tori,” who is Kim and Yoon’s dog. Han deleted the post after the controversy arose.
