It was during when he had successfully completed his military service and thought that he looked "weird for some reason."

At the time, he was firm that he wanted to get his nose done, but what suddenly changed his mind after some realizations.
"I put a lot of thought into it and decided not to get it because I realized that I have never made my living off of how I look. I thought that I might as well just work out more."
