Cai Xukun’s Old Company Reveals His Plastic Surgery

It has been a bitter battle in court between Chinese star Cai Xukun (蔡徐坤) and his former agency, who is intent on winning at all costs. Shanghai Yihai Film Culture Communication posted photos that showed the radical changes in Xukun’s facial features throughout the years, hinting the 24-year had received plastic surgery.

The agency also uploaded his contract onto Weibo, showing the fees for his training and plastic surgery fees incurred at a Korean hospital which amounted to 3.29 Chinese yuan.

The road to stardom has been a struggle for Xukun. In 2015, Xukun participated in reality competition show Super Idol <星動亞洲> and received training in South Korea. He made his debut in 2016 as a member of boy band SWIN. The group did not achieve much success due to mismanagement and lack of resources from Shanghai Yihai. In 2017, he finally achieved stardom as the leader of temporary boyband NINE PERCENT after winning reality competition show Idol Producer <偶像練習生>. The group disbanded in 2019 and Cai Xukun successfully launched his solo career and was a regular on variety show Hurry Up, Brother <奔跑吧兄弟>.

In 2017, he filed a lawsuit against Shanghai Yihai, requesting to dissolve his contract. As he was not yet 18 years old when he signed the contract, he sued the company on the basis of unfair terms. The case has been ongoing, and Xukun’s assets were frozen in April due to copyright disputes over his music albums.

  1. I think his nasal bridge is narrower and his chin is pointier. But that may be angle of picture and make up. Either way, who really cares if he had plastic surgery? Seems so juvenile for the come to put him down that way. Plus, he was a child when he was with them. How toxic.

    1. true very vindictive of them, not good place to be/work with. Good he got rid of them.

    2. I can kind of see that now that you mention it. But the picture on the right also looks like a more professional photo that could’ve been edited. They edit photos all the time to make their faces less round. I’ve seen some where I could barely even recognize the celebrity anymore lol. You’re also right in that this shouldn’t matter anymore considering how many people get it. The only thing I can think of where this might matter is that list of rumored restrictions that China wanted to implement on entertainers. I feel like plastic surgery was one of them. Regardless, I support artists defying these low handed greedy entertainment companies.

  2. I still have to meet celebrity in c-ent and k-ent that did not do something to its outer appearance. Sometimes it is minor, sometimes major change but always gradual and commonly starting super early.
