    Smile Oh, sorry, I couldn’t recognize you.

    Hello~ Can you help me say this naturally please?


    A: Hey, I know you saw me, why don’t you pretend to know me at least?


    B: Huh! Is it you?
    ⓐOh, sorry, I couldn’t recognize you.
    ⓑOh, sorry, I couldn’t figure out you.
    Man, you changed a lot.
    Is it because of your dress or did you have plastic surgery or something?

    A: You got it. I made my noise higher. looks better?

    B: Errr,,,, yeah....

    Re: Oh, sorry, I couldn’t recognize you.

    Are these the only two options you have?

    "Oh, sorry, I DIDN'T recognise you" would be better.

    I think it means the nose, not noise. But, it should be "I had my nose fixed or I had a nose job done. Does it look better?

    B: Errr,,,, yeah....
