Hi guys! What are your guys’ thoughts about all the negative articles in Western media recently focusing on South Korean beauty standards? I just wrote a few of my thoughts down on my blog, but I’m not Korean, so I thought I’d ask someone more knowledgeable.

This is the most recent: http://www.buzzfeed.com/ashleyperez/i-wasnt-beautiful-enough-to-live-in-south-korea

But then there was that NPR article, this one on Jezebel: http://jezebel.com/5976202/i-cant-stop-looking-at-these-south-korean-women-whove-had-plastic-surgery

It’s hard because there’s some truth in them, but the way the facts are framed are often bullshit.

mod note:

I feel like the buzzfeed article is a different creature because it’s spoken from a Korean-American who talks about shadeism and things like that. It’s just bullshit that they chose to publish her story during all the talk about South Korean plastic surgery and beauty standards and that’s the context people come to the article with.

However, THOSE OTHER ARTICLES ARE SUCH BULLSHIT. Especially the ones that talk about how UNIFORM these women look.

Want to know why?

Here’s 2013 American pageant contestants from:



District of Columbia












SO FUCK THEIR RACIST BULLSHIT AND THEIR RACIST ARTICLES. I cannot fucking believe that those people have writing jobs. I seriously cannot. They need to stick to their own damn country and stop talking shit about places they know nothing about.
