Is it Common to do Plastic Surgery in Korea?
Plastic surgery is not an unusual thing in South Korea. One of the reasons that people choose to undergo plastic surgery is to make them feel good about themselves. They want to be ‘good looking’. Of course ‘good looking’ is a subjective adjective. It differs from each person, in each country, and that is because beauty standards are different across the world. The culture, history, race, geographical region, and people shape those beauty standards. Korea, unfortunately, has a very specific and high standard, which is why a lot of people in Korea go all out to ‘fix’ their appearance in accordance to that standard. These cases are especially popular among celebrities as they are the people who are under the spotlight. People will always find flaws and try to find a way to criticize them. Thus, plastic surgery is the answer for those who desperately desire their appearance to be accepted by the public.
Seo Kang-joon’s Plastic Surgery Rumor
Who doesn’t know Seo Kang-joon, the 25-year-old actor who starred in a lot of popular dramas, such as Cheese in the Trap (2016) and I’m Not A Robot (2018). Aside from being known as a good actor, he is also acknowledged by the public because of his handsome face. What distinguishes him the most from other handsome actors is his eyes. His brown eyes are the kind of eyes that suck you in, that if you stare at them long enough, you’ll find yourself feeling like swimming in a pool of hot chocolate. A bit exaggerated, but you can see it for yourself here:
But other than his eyes, do you think his handsome face is natural or is it a result of the work of knives? Let’s take a look at his pre-debut photos!
Now here are photos of his current look:
Although now he definitely looks more handsome than ever, we think that it’s not because of plastic surgery but more because of the magic hands of his make up artists and hair stylists. There are no significant differences in his facial structure and even if there is, it comes with the process of maturing. What do you think about it? Leave your opinion in the comment section!
