South Korean's plastic surgery is the capital of the world
Celebrity influence is believed to be another factor behind the cosmetic surgery boom in Korea. ..In addition, some TV dramas and films glorify cosmetic surgery. The hugely successful 2006 Korean film “200 Pound Beauty” is one example.
Another explanation for the high rates of cosmetic surgery in Korea is the desire to achieve a more “Westernized” look. This is reflected in the popularity of certain procedures.
