On the April 5 airing of tvN's 'Life Bar', Lee Elle talked about her facial features and said, "I'm not the typical beauty. I'm a bit unique." She then added, "Nowadays, I receive compliments and am able to try various roles, but in the past, I had a difficult time due to my looks. It was hard for me to find a production because they didn't know what I would be good for."
Lee Elle revealed she considered cosmetic surgery as an option. She explained, "I went to a cosmetic surgeon in Gangnam and consulted them about my chin. But the doctor refused surgery on me. S/he told me that the time will come, where my chin will become the charming type."
