Miss Korea 2013 meme: Have Koreans flipped on plastic surgery?

Like the way computer-aided design and engineering has resulted in the convergence of automobile design to a general look that, technologies and procedures that enhance physical appearances that have become increasingly available and affordable are now resulting in a creepy convergence in “beauty”.

Making waves across the net is a set of photos said to comprise the current crop of Miss Korea 2013 contestants…

Perhaps the tendency to converge towards an identical look is a result of the way that Koreans take pride in being among the most homogeneous nations in the world

Being such a tight group of people, Koreans cannot easily accept anyone or anything different from themselves. Foreigners are treated with contempt, alien traditions are looked upon as uncivilized ones, and progress regarding traditional values is feared. In short, Korea has trouble opening up to the rest of the world.

Homogeneity can be a priceless treasure, but at the same time it can be the chain and ball that prevents Korea from going as far as it can in the global era. Knowing a nation’s roots, having pride in them is the beginning of progress.

    Emperor Haile Selassie of Ethiopia once said that until the philosophy which hold one race superior and another inferior is finally and permanently discredited and abandoned everywhere is war.That until there no longer
    First class and second class citizens of any nation, until the colour of a man’s skin
    is of no more significance than the colour of his eyes, it`s a war. To lighten up the other side, it`s very interesting how individual differ from one another.

    If we go out our way protecting and maintaining the integrity of dog breeds, why can’t we not do it on humans?

    Koreas kkkkulture, as with many parts of asia, is built upon collectivism as opposed to individualism, and represents the single biggest difference between east and west, and the social, economic, and political sub-cultures which subsequently eminate and permeate society.

    With regard to korea they have the 4k’s

    In the progressive south
    K-pop
    Kimchi
    Klones
    kreativity

    In the repressive North
    Kim il-sung
    Kim jong-il
    Kim jong un
    Kommunism

    The south are experimenting with freedom and benefitting from open markets and a working democracy. Their youthful vigour and immaturity can lead to a sense of superiority and arrogance which they need to temper as they find their international voice/identity.
    The chicks are hot – but once you’ve had one, it is as though you’ve had the all.

    Not being cynical, it really is great to be a guy. I mean, they are all cute and beautiful, and I can’t hide the fact that it is mostly us men that are the prime benefactor.

    I’d rather this artificial beautification than the piss poor attempt to look white by way of “whitening creams” from Flip women. At the very least, Korea is applying its proficiency in Science and technology, both aspects which the Philippines still continue to struggle with.
