I saw this too.  It reminded me of this novel series I read as a teen- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uglies


To answer your question, I think they’re gorgeous; I think it’s still beauty despite being artifical (makeup creates artificial beauty too- we just have to look at pics of celebrities without makeup to see that), but I personally wouldn’t do it.  If I lived in Korea, maybe I would- who knows.  But definitely not in America.

It’s incredible how beautiful they look, wow. Why is it that when Americans get plastic surgery, we tend to look like the Real Housewives of Orange County?

Wow they do all look similar, but you can’t tell it’s fake. Korean plastic surgeons must be better than the ones who do work on people like Joan Rivers!

I think they look so good it doesn’t matter. I also don’t really feel like everyone in those pictures looks the same. Similar stylistically, but not the same.

Also, as with typical before and afters, the before is un-make uped and frumpy purposefully, while the after always has things like nicer eyebrows and lots of make up and nice hair.

Their surgeons did a great job because it looks natural! But it’s kind of creepy how they all look like they’re related…closely.

@peonyinparis:  that original photo seems like it’s been photoshopped a great deal. No doubt the girl has had work done but the original photo is so “off”. 

To respond to your topic, eyelid surgery in Korea is as prevalent as Botox in America. its a quick procedure (so I’ve been told). Maybe because I live in LA, but a ton of people here have nose jobs, breast implants, face lifts, lips, eyes and quick procedures here and there, and this is across all ethnicities – hispanics, caucasian, African American, Asian. I can’t tell you how many girls I’ve come across that have had work done – breast implants for 1 cup size, one breast implant to even out irregular breast sizes, nose jobs to shave off a bridge or create a pointed nose, lips, lipo, or body contouring. And it’s not just surgery, how many of us wear makeup, dye our hair, or even wear colored contacts (if that’s still in). I do find the fixation on beauty out of control but by no means is it any different here in America. I would never do it but I would never condemn another for it as long as they get proper help before making a change.

I knew a couple of Korean girls growing up and it was considered a right of passage to them to have their eyes done at 15 or 16. They wanted “American Eyes” or the lack of the asian double lid and their parents were more than willing to pay for it :(. Many had nose jobs too to make their noses thinner. I just dont get it personally they were beautiful asian looking women before, why be something you arent?

As stated sad part is so many of these photos they were beautiful before, why do they do this to themselves? They all look like cartoon characters afterwards and that isnt always awesome. I should know I’ve been called my my friends the walking anime character since I was a teenager :/ and I’m a white girl :/. Even one of my male Korean friends told me I’m the ideal asian a white girl with asian build :/ totally strange.

The thought of shaving down jaw bones make me queasy.  I honestly didn’t know you could alter eye shapes that drastically, either.

There is some truth to this. 

I watch korean dramas frequently, and so many times the lead females begin to all look the same.
