Who Else Wants to See This Korean Plastic Surgery Documentary Completed?
Take a look at some of the latest plastic surgery statistics, and you’ll find South Korea to be at the top of the list. Korean plastic surgery is huge in Asia, but if you’ve ever wondered why that is, you might want to check out this very insightful documentary. It's not a Korean Plastic Surgery Documentary per se, but it has everything to do with the South Korean youth’s way of life, their culture and beauty standards.
On television, Korean celebrities and idols sport a similar look: large, lidded eyes, fair skin, a defined nose and a slim figure. It’s just become the norm now, so much so that locals as young as elementary-school aged children choose to get DIY cosmetic surgery in Korea – an inexpensive but dubious alternative.
But it can’t be helped really. We’re naturally attracted to what is familiar, because familiarity increases liking. As you know, how we look in the mirror is not actually how others see us! It is a reversed image of how we actually are. When you take a picture and the end result is automatically flipped by your phone or camera, you might have been horrified, “Who is this weirdo?” you might have thought.
Sometimes we look weird in pictures, because we’re not used to seeing ourselves this way. We’re used to seeing the one in the mirror. The same thing happens when you listen to a recording of your own voice!
