Idol Plasticity: Yumiko Shaku


Idol and actress 釈由美子 / Yumiko Shaku is shown throughout her long career in the above comparison image, though we might be forgiven for thinking that two or perhaps three people feature.

Since her debut in the early nineties, her face is thought to have been subjected to some significant “enhancements”, with observers pointing out changes to her nose, and especially her eyes.

Truly, an idol such as this, being subjected to image manipulation via everything from Photoshop to cosmetic surgery, is no more real than a virtual idol such as Hatsune Miku, although it is of course folly to think of idols of whatever sort as possessing “realness”…
