The Voice's Elly Oh has revealed she was told to "fix her face" if she ever wanted to become a K-pop sensation.
Speaking to SBS Pop Asia, the reality show contestant said she'd tried to break onto the K-pop scene as a teenager, but was told she wasn't pretty enough.
"I wanted to become a K-pop singer when I was 18," she said. "(But) some management company said I have to fix my face first.
"In Korea ... I'm not the pretty face, honestly."
Now, the 29-year-old says she feels lucky that people tell her she is "very cute".
Oh said she'd love to work with Psy, the South Korean popstar whose video Gangnam Style has been viewed more than two billion times on YouTube. The video became a global sensation and brought the K-Pop trend to the world after it was uploaded in July 2012.
She also revealed her mentor, Ricky Martin, is so good looking in real life it's like gazing upon "a Michelangelo".
Oh was tipped as a possible Voice victor this season after her powerhouse performance of Jessie J's Mamma Knows Best.
