The Korean plastic surgery show “Let Me In Thailand” had its fourth season premiere yesterday night by transforming a Thai healthcare worker. The popular show in Thailand flies Thai people to South Korea to have plastic surgery to improve their lives. 25-year-old Apichen Rueksadee went under the knife to change his facial features. The surgeons changed his jaw, cheekbone, chin, and nose to make him look like a Korean rock star, reports Coconuts Bangkok.
The show follows Rueksadee before the surgery as he tells his wife, son, and his mother in law on his plans to get plastic surgery. He views his chin as the most problematic on his face. In a plastic surgery consultation in S. Korea, the doctor describes his chin as a “witch chin.”
Rueksadee goes under the knife and emerges with a new face and a new confidence.
He goes to his son’s school announced to see if his son would recognize him. His son doesn’t recognize him so Rueksadee reveals who he is and his son seems sad. It must be scary to see a new face saying he’s your father while you miss the old face that you have gotten used to your whole life.
Next up he goes to see his wife. She’s having dinner with some friends when Rueksadee takes a seat at a table opposite hers.
She glimpses over a couple times but she doesn’t recognize him.
He finally walks over to greet her.
She’s happy to see him and happy that he’s happy.
Finally, he goes to see his mother in law. He stands only a couple feet from her but she doesn’t recognize him.
She gets up to leave the office and that’s when Rueksadee reveals who he is to the surprised mother in law.
She can’t hold back her joy of seeing her son in law.
Rueksadee didn’t just get the surgery because he didn’t like certain parts of his face. He hopes to break into the entertainment industry as an actor or model with his new look so that he could make some extra money to take care of his family.
