It's no secret that Solbi went under the knife, but what fans and observers wanted to know was why why she did it in the first place. On the July 13th broadcast of MBC's 'Human Documentary', Solbi came out and admitted to the motivation behind her physical alteration: "I thought it would help me out in this industry, and I wanted to start anew. I thought the answer was plastic surgery", reported allkpop."I went under the knife. I wanted to change my face. I thought that if I change my face, my life would change too. And if my life changes, then my dreams would change as well. I think I was just disheartened by everything."Solbi revealed that the backlash from netizens for her change in appearance left her even more hurt, but she was eventually able to smile again and make a comeback.She also opened up on the hurt she felt in the wake of her fake sex tape scandal.Back in 2009, a sex video, which featured a girl who bore a striking resemblance to Solbi, was circulated around various online outlets, with the title 'Solbi's manager's leaked video'.The scandal even resulted in the break up between Solbi and her boyfriend at the time. Fortunately, it was later confirmed that the woman in the video wasn't Solbi and the individuals behind the video were taken into custody.Recalling the, traumatic ordeal then, Solbi said on air: "Why do difficult things like this happen only to me? I was unable to bear the pain. It felt like I kept getting punched in a wrestling ring? I don't even remember how hurt I was. To that extent, I felt like I wanted to get a knock-down."I wanted to let go of everything... I knew that I would have to deal with this in the future and carry this baggage so it was a heavy burden."
