Surgery in Korea

After watching my favorite drama, I changed the channel and it happened that one of the program was showing about those who got surgeries. There was an interview that a lady said she's not shy to tell the whole world that she had an operation because it became normal to Korean to get a plastic surgery. Some of them work as a part time job to pay for their operation. There's a case that a guy got 31 surgeries. If the first one didn't work well, then they have to get another one until they can be satisfied.

The part of the bodies that they usually get operated are the chin, eyelid, lips, forehead, and nose. One of them had them all and she spent almost $15,000. Some had legs and breast operations. They said, operations changed their way of lives a lot. Some of them even made much money because of their physical appearance and they receive more respect from others. I agree. Beauty is like a treasure in Korea. If you'll listen to Korean parents of what they want for their children, you'll always hear the same line. "Grow healthy and beautiful!"

Now a days, men/women don't care if their girlfriends/boyfriends had an operation as long as she/he is pretty/handsome then there will be no problem. Is it also okay for you if your boyfriend/girlfriend had a surgery? And are you willing to get a plastic surgery if the money is not a problem?
