16-year-old Singapore girl asked to have fillers on K-pop show


She is only 16 but Singaporean aspiring K-pop star Anthea Wang was offered a free cosmetic procedure at a Seoul plastic surgeon's clinic recently.

During the clinic visit, Anthea, a contestant on television talent show K-pop Star Hunt's second season, was told: "Your jaw is square, nose is humped and you have bad skin."

She turned down the offer of fillers, a scene in episode eight of the TV talent show, which airs in Singapore on Saturday on Channel M (StarHub Channel 824).

"We're still young, why would I want to do this?" she says adamantly, now back in Singapore after filming the show in Seoul for three weeks in October last year.
