Fresh faced dentist Lee Su Jin looks like she’s only just finished her training.
In actual fact, the youthful mum from Korea graduated from Seoul National University 25 years ago, and is now the director of a dental clinic.
But despite Lee’s lengthy career and prestigious position, you could be forgiven for mistaking her for being a friend of her teenage daughter.
Seriously, checkout workers would definitely ID this woman if she was grabbing a Friday night bottle of wine:

이전 게시물 마지막에서 제가 #임플란트 수술을 가장 많이 한 치과의사 중 한명이라 밝혔습니다. 하지만 수없이 발치를 하고 임플한트 수술을 할수록 제겐 채워지지 않는 갈증이 있습니다. 치료보단 예방을 하는 의사가 되고싶은 갈증이죠! 우리나라 사람들은 유난히 임플란트 환자가 많습니다. 평생 딱딱한 총각무우, 질기고 거친 나물을 씹는 습관! 옆으로 갈아먹는 힘 (측방압)이 치아를 망가뜨립니다. 이것이 주로 빵을 먹고 스테이크를 작게 썰어먹는 서양인에 비해 한국인의 치아가 빨리 망가지는 원인이죠! . 잇몸이 약해지는 원인은 나이탓도 있지만 여기에 심한 힘 (과도한 저작력) 과 세균 (우리 입안엔 1억~10억 마리의 세균이 삽니다.) 이 우리 치아를 망가뜨립니다. 제가 SNS를 하는 이유! 예방! 자 이제 음식을 잘게 썰어 드시는게 어떨까요?
Lee’s extraordinarily young appearance left viewers open mouthed when she appeared on Same Bed, Different Dreams, a Korean TV show which aims to resolve tense issues between parents and their kids.
Lee featured on the show alongside her daughter, who was a bit miffed about her mum’s social media addiction. Apparently, Lee had become a little too enthusiastic when uploading photographs of herself to Instagram.
Somewhat sadly, Lee admitted she got obsessed with social media after her daughter stopped talking to her as much once she started middle school. The social interaction she received through Instagram helped to fill the space left by her daughter’s conversation.
Thankfully, the feuding mother and daughter managed to patch things up on the show, as reported by 9Gag.
However, family disputes aside, all viewers could take about was what sort of fountain of eternal youth Lee was drinking from.
Lee explained how her twenty-something vibe is all down to her healthy diet, exercise regime, and some very, very fortunate genes.
But just how old actually is she? 50. Yes, that’s right. Hard to believe isn’t it.
Lee became something of a social media celeb after the show aired, with hundreds of new fans flocking to Instagram to wonder over her miraculous appearance.
One person described her as being ‘so cute and amazing’ while another remarked how she looked, ‘fantastic’.
Of course, being beautiful and getting likes on Instagram is all well and good, but most importantly Lee has made up with her daughter, which is great news indeed!
