Miss Korea 2013 Contestants Before After Photos Amuse Netizens

The latest reporting on the prevalence of plastic surgery in South Korea came from Reddit, mocking uncanny resemblance of the participants of the Daegu branch of annual beauty pageant Miss Korea, culminating in the below viral image from Imgur:

Known globally for its cosmetic surgery craze, South Korea indeed remains unopposed in the global plastic surgery table, giving the impression that the secret of South Korean beauty lies as much in cosmetic surgery as it does in national genes.

Miss Korea 2012 was dubbed ‘Miss Plastic 2012‘ by netizens for her open use of plastic surgery. Little less known is the growing willingness with which South Korean men go under the knife.

Although many netizens jumped to the cliched conclusion of so-called ‘medically-induced postnatal twinning syndrome’, when the pre-makeup photos (or, as some netizens suggest, pre-photoshop photos) of the participants emerged on Ilbe, the truth was a bit more disappointing.

I am at loss for words… Ju-jul-muk?

[ju-jul-muk: Meaning 'I will bow in gratitude for the sexual intercourse for which I am about to have with this girl']

    what’s wrong get a beautiful face from plastic surgery ?? if you want to look pretty too, then go do plastic surgery instead of saying that they are ” fugly ” . baka yarro

      Sure fixing a little is ok, if that help with self esteem, but I guess in Korea, it is a must-do stuff…. I would never make my wife/gf go change herself…Let nature takes its course.

    Asian men in every country are extremely shallow to look so unattractive themselves.

    What’s funny is that I find all of these women to be more attractive pre-op. Asian women are so beautiful when it’s natural. Not sure why so many want to change.

    #8 is a dude in a wig. Shouldn’t that disqualify him?

    Mostly photoshop I think. But given the prevalence of plastic surgery in SK, it hardly comes as a surprise if these ladies did go under the knife to enhance their features. But how much time do they have before the coronation night? If they were to have surgery after being accepted as a contestant, how much time do they need to have the surgery done? 1, 14 and 7 stand out. They look pretty without photoshop (or surgery?). But in the photoshopped image, it appeared as if I was looking at several photos of just 3-5 girls (not 20+ candidates) and sisters at that!

    Number 5 and 20…. holy shit. lol. Oh well, at least #14 is kinda cute :)

  • icarus

    blame the make-up artists. The make-up makes them look similar. And what the hell is wrong with those guys saying that some of the girls aren’t pretty enough to be in the pageant?? I think all of them are really pretty.

  • kylar

    I still find these women to be beautiful!

  • bultak23

    They look like space aliens… what crazy Apgujeong-dong doctor is ruining pretty girl’s faces? 농담 이겠지

    You all are annoying, you probably dont even know that getting cosmetic surgery in korea is a recurring phenomenon happening due to social and and economic reasons. Although I find it a bit disturbing that 1/5 women have had plastic surgery (fact) theres no reason to say childish, irrelevant things.
