As a teenager in South Korea, Elly Oh decided she needed to find out whether she could make it as a singer.
Then 18-years-old, she auditioned to be a K-pop star but was told she didn’t have the right look.
"They were telling me that I’m not good enough, in the face, to go on a TV show," she says.
"I told them, 'I'm very scared of plastic surgery and I think I'm pretty enough'. So in the end it didn’t work out."
Now in her 30s, Ms Oh says the K-pop industry has changed a lot since then but she has never looked back.
"Everyone must be unique and I’m proud of myself and what I look like," she says.
After the ill-fated audition, Elly's parents suggested she try classical music and it turned out to be a perfect fit.
"I fell in love with opera," she says. "Classical music is very good to know at the beginning when you're starting music."
