Thai woman can’t recognize her son after he went on Korean surgery show. A 22-year-old Thai factory worker shocked his mother with a total transformation after he had a series of plastic surgeries on Let Me In Thailand, the Thai edition of a Korean popular TV show.
Noppajit Monlin, 22, had always desired to change how he looked, as his twisted jaw made him unable to chew properly. Ashamed by his abnormality, Noppajit often alienated himself from his co-workers and ate alone during his lunch breaks.
In an interview on the show, Noppajit said that his life has tremendously changed, especially in social settings. “People say I’m a different person. I feel much better. Before, people said my face was not normal and society didn’t accept me, now I have more friends,” he said, in a slightly heart-breaking commentary on society at large.
However, despite looking like a trendy Korean model now, Noppajit said he’s still the same person, and his heart still belongs to “Tob,” a transgender woman he met on Facebook and has been dating for three years. “Although I have a new life now, my heart is the same.” Noppajit said.
