Many plastic surgeons have revealed that Seo Kang Joon is one of the most popular celebrities that their clients always bring a photo of.
They want his eyes! Yes, his beautiful eyes.
However, they revealed that not even the advanced technology of plastic surgery can recreate the beauty that his eyes display.
Seo Kang Joon was actually extremely famous in the neighborhood of Gunpo Sanbon even before he became an official actor and celebrity in the K-Pop industry.
