I spent $60,000 on surgery to look like Kim Kardashian — and I have no regrets

Get moving, Kim Kardashian — you might get competition.

A South Korean woman has spent more than $60,000 and had 15 surgeries to look like the reality star and SKIMS mogul.

Cherri Lee, who was born with the name Hanbyeol, grew up with Kardashian, 41, and longs to be like her.

“Kim has always been an inspiration to me and she’s the most beautiful woman in the world to me,” Lee recently gushed to the South West News Service.

Lee had her first surgery when she was 20 and performed a procedure to get double eyelids.

The 28-year-old has also gone under the knife to have surgeries including three Brazilian butt lifts, two breast augmentations and multiple facial reconstructions.

Her looks have evolved so much that many people don’t realize she’s Asian, she told SWNS — even some who are close to her.

“I actually look like a completely different person now than I did before,” she said. “I’m western-looking and some of my Korean family members don’t even recognize me anymore.”

The part-time English teacher – who said she received financial help and support from her parents – got her first breast job in Seoul, South Korea, in 2016 and now has 34GGG boobs.

“Kim has always been an inspiration to me and I think she’s the most beautiful woman in the world,” said Cherri Lee of her idol (pictured here.

While Lee is done with her surgeries for now, she has “no regrets about a single procedure and I would do it all over again the same way” — adding that she “only regrets why I didn’t do it sooner.”

After a difficult breakup in the early 2010s, she decided to change up her look. She became “addicted to surgery” but saw “positive changes” every time she got out of the hospital.

“I would get a high if I woke up in excruciating pain and saw myself afterwards, and it would be my reward,” she said.

Her ex-boyfriend didn’t want her back after her first surgery in 2014 and she subsequently had her BBLs between 2019 and 2021.

Between those years, Lee underwent nose surgery, cheekbone surgery, double chin reduction, and two rounds of buccal fat removal.

Currently single and living in South Korea, Lee believes her Kardashian look “requires a lot more effort” to perfect due to her Asian background.

“I don’t think my facial features look like Kim K, but the general vibe is her,” she said, adding that people tell her she “should be her body double.”

Lee went on to say that she “was never really a fan of oriental looks” and didn’t love her pre-surgery looks.

“I didn’t like the way I looked before, but now I’m really happy,” she explained.

“I know when to stop and I’m not planning any more surgeries now,” Lee explained. “I’ve achieved the look I’ve always wanted.”

And while people stop and stare at her and compliment her in public, she hates it when guys ask for her number.

In a twist, her ex has reportedly been back in touch with her since her transformation and reportedly wants to rekindle their relationship. However, Lee has other plans.

“I’m too good for him now and I’m getting more and more men coming at me,” she said.

“It was just rude,” Lee said.

As for the few negative reactions she reportedly gets, Lee is “not swayed by it.” A middle-aged lady even asked her if she was a sex worker.

“If you don’t have anything nice to say, keep jogging. Everyone should have the right to change their body. Do what you want as long as you don’t harm anyone,” she explained.
