Korean Plastic Surgery Tumblr Gone Viral Online

23 Feb

Hello everyone!

Just came across this clip by the The Young Turks addressing plastic surgeries in South Korea.

I think one of the point she made in the clip hit the bulls eye!

She mentioned something like this: “In the west, people expect you to wear make up and and plastic surgery is often frown upon. But in Korea, if you got the means and ability to improve yourself, whether intellectually or physically, why not? It’s often encouraged if anything when it comes to self improvement”

Therefore, in South Korea where cosmetic advancement is abundant and affordable, it becomes commonplace like going shopping, without too “much” stigma attached. Stigma is still prevalent but it is relative.

Take a look:

Some crazy transformation below:

I asked for……A poem

alexshoe

I asked for Strength

And was given Difficulties to make me strong.

I asked for Wisdom

And was given Problems to solve.

I asked for Prosperity

And was given a Brain and Brawn to work.

I asked for Courage

And was given Danger to overcome.

I asked for Love

And was given Troubled people to help.

I asked for Favors

And was given Opportunities.

I received nothing I wanted.

I received everything I needed.
