The public’s rapidly growing craze with plastic surgery is quite evident with the recent pictures of Miss Korean contestants. People are calling them ‘clones’ because of the obvious similarity in their looks.
How Plastic Surgery Is Making Everyone Look Similar
A lot of people including Hollywood celebrities have been complaining about how plastic surgery is making everyone look the same.
This ‘fever’ with a particular kind of noses, lips, and eyes have taken everyone in its possession.More and more celebrities are now talking about it in a derogatory way. Miss South Korea 2020 is also an example of it.
In fact, some of the female comedians like Tina Fey have made fun of what it means to be a woman in Hollywood too.
It had the same sort of message as to how the industry requires a woman with a particular kind of looks.Now, obviously not everyone is born with big lips, beautiful eyes, and big lashes so they get them with surgery. People are even going to dentists to get a ‘perfect’ set of teeth and it is quite weird how almost everyone has the same kind of teeth in the industry.
Hence, Miss South Korea looks the way she does.
Do South Korea’s Miss Korean Pageants Get Plastic Surgery?
South Korea’s obsession with plastic surgery became evident after the pictures of Miss Korean pageants vent viral.
We all could witness how all of these contestants had almost the same features and same skin tone.The looks of Miss South Korea 2020 elaborate enough about this craze.
With the same big eyes, black hair, small noses, and pink and white skin tone, these pageants looked like clones that one machine made. Reddit shared these pictures online with all the users making them criticize the trend. Users also criticized how these contestants are contributing to the growing fashion of opting for plastic surgery.
In no way this fashion is appreciated and recognized by the public because of its obvious negative impact. In fact, South Korea is amongst the countries where women from ages 19-49 go under the knife quite frequently. Now we all realize why Miss South Korea is under such criticism.
Is ‘Celebrity Culture’ Contributing to Identity Crisis?
This zeal and zest among young women in South Korea are because of the celebrity culture.Since all the celebrities try to look more ‘Western’, they go for the surgery to even change their looks.
Just the way Miss South Korea 2020 did and now the naive public follows their footsteps blindly changing who they are forever.
This not only results in physical changes but adds to the increasing identity crisis. Women especially are no longer embracing their true selves and who they are.
This is not the opinion of a few people only but Reddit sparked a big debate after these pictures were viral. More than 3000 people participated in the debate speaking against the fact the finalists of Miss Korean looked the same.
They believe it is not only them but the whole country believes so because even the eyebrows of these participants looked the same.
Users Commenting On The Trend As ‘Sad’
A lot of users have explicitly expressed their views regarding the issue and for most of them, it is sad.
One user says the plastic surgery takes individuality away and they are no longer the same.According to the user, most of the Korean women are beautiful and their ethnic features are lovely. But they think they don’t look beautiful and so does Miss South Korea.
Another user said that no matter how much you try to convince them, they will not listen to you. Since the western media and culture has brainwashed them, they believe ‘those’ people are superior. They don’t want to look ‘white’ but a blend of Asian and white but not Korean.
People are complaining about how young girls don’t look Korean anymore because they have changed their faces. It is so common that if you meet a girl, you just assume that she has done it. Because everyone is into it and you won’t find anyone who has not.
