This Is Some Serious Kpop Effect!!!!!

So I was on YouTube one random night watching my favorite kpop groups when I saw this video in the suggested videos. I, being the weird kpopper I am, decided to click on it and see where it led to thinking, "It couldn't hurt right?" Little did I know that I would be seeing into the heart of Koreans and how Kpop truly effects them. It makes me wonder if Koreans think us Americans have 'big eyes.'
If you were Korean, if you're not already Korean, and living in Korea, do you think you'd follow this image trend? What are your thoughts on this image trend?

I really don't understand the obsession with "perfect" beauty. Take that girl Hwain, her eyes were really pretty before the surgery. She didn't have to change them. When everyone starts getting the same thing done they all emd up lookong alike. There's no diversity, no different types of beauty, nothing that makes you unique. I understand why they do it but I prefer natural faces.
But the girl Hwain was already pretty, and they guy with 17 surgeries was cute before the surgery. T-T this is sad, they're all pretty, they didn't need to do this. But it's ok, I won't judge them.
@KellyOConnor I completely understand and agree with you. Also, since you mentioned it: Hwain, want to have open eyes when all I want is to be able to have Asian eyes. As they say, "the grass is greener on the other side."
I think if it makes them happy let them do it. We have no right to judge because it's their life.
not all kpop stars do plastic surgery (if that is what they are implying)

Dimpleplasty - Get Dimples With A Quick And Easy Procedure
Cher, Mario Lopez, and Jennifer Garner are all famous for their dimpled smiles. They recently inspired fans to get their own dimples. “Everyone in Hollywood has them, and everyone wants them,” say plastic surgeons. Men who want the “Mario Lopez” look are also interested in the procedure. So, what is Dimpleplasty? Natural dimples are caused by skin adhering to underlying tissue. If someone smiles, a dimple appears. While some dimples last into adulthood, many disappear as a child grows and the cheek muscle matures. The latest cosmetic surgery trend is Dimpleplasty in Mumbai. Cosmetic surgeons now create four times as many dimples as they did a few years ago. What is Dimpleplasty? A tiny incision inside the patient's cheek creates dimples. No cuts on the outside of the face. The remaining cheek muscle is sutured to the skin's underside with dissolvable suture. An incision on the inside of the cheek creates a dimple. One local anaesthetic is used for the entire outpatient procedure. The dimples will be deeper at first, but will look natural after a few months. Initially visible whenever the patient smiles, the dimples gradually fade away. What is the Dolly Dimple? Dr. Siddharth Prakash, one of the few cosmetic surgeons who offers the service, says the “Dolly Dimple” is an updated version of the original dimple creation surgery in Mumbai that is more predictable. "Dimples can be more personalised," said Dr. Siddharth. “Patients can design their own dimples, long, short, deep, shallow, etc.” The patient can also choose the location of the dimples on their cheeks. Dimples are cute and brighten a person's smile. They are even lucky in some cultures.
Plastic Surgery in South Korea
Que tal peeps! This is your chica Jessamine aka @amobigbang here to talk about a serious topic. We all know that looking your best is something very important everywhere, but I'm going to concentrate on Kpop and South Korea. Disclaimer: KpopINT does not promote plastic surgery nor judges those who are considering plastic surgery. There will be a discussion of a controversial topic in this post. Plastic surgery is very popular in South Korean culture and especially in Kpop. Most Kpop stars may get some type of plastic surgery done for personal reasons or career reasons. Many idols do feel the pressure just like regular citizens to look good and even perfect at times to achieve the notion of what is beautiful. When skincare and makeup is not enough they tend to turn to the knife. Even people in other countries come to South Korea to get plastic surgery since South Korea has so many options and awesome plastic surgery surgeons. "Seoul, South Korea, is the plastic surgery capital of the world, with more procedures per capita than any other nation" (2015, Baer). Source None of these images or videos belong to KpopINT. Writer Jessamine aka @amobigbang KpopINT Chairs: @bbyitskatie @Sailynn @KpopBeat KpopINT Fam: @elaynethtrumpet @JohnEvans @LenaBlackRose @LexiMintkgtopty @ParkHwaYoung @parktaemi @tayunnie COMMENT YOUR THOUGHTS BELOW! Before and After Pictures This is a mixture of some before and after pictures of Kpop stars and regular South Korean citizens who had some type of plastic surgery. When people get plastic surgery you will see the double eyelid or chin/jawline procedure done to give the appearance of wider eyes and that "V" jawline. However, "the most common procedure in Korea is blepharoplasty, or double eyelid surgery. According to the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, it's the most popular plastic surgery operation in the world, with 1.43 million people getting it done in 2014" (2015, Baer). Double Eyelid Surgery Overview This operation is very controversial. Some say Asians get this procedure to look more Western or to wash out their beautiful Asian features. While some say they get this surgery to look more youthful and awake. "Critics say that the operation makes patients look "less Asian," while proponents say that it's simply a matter of beauty - bigger eyes equals more attractiveness, essentially" (2015, Baer). Oh and don't think women only seek out this procedure. Men do as well. "Hang-Seok Choi, the director of JK Plastic Surgery, a Seoul-based clinic that sees 10,000 patients a year,and the 20% of his patients that are male" (2015, Baer). Many people may pick this procedure since it is very cheap compare to other procedures and less invasive. The prices range "between $1,000 and $3,000" (2015, Baer). Double Eyelid Surgery Advertising Look at how this plastic surgery procedure is advertised. They promote this ad by suggesting it will give you innocent and pure look. Buzzfeed: Plastic Surgery in South Korea I wanted to give you a break from reading lol. This video is what inspired me to make this post. These people send their photos to South Korean plastic surgeons to see how these surgeons would alter their faces. Some people were shocked by their results. This video teaches some plastic surgery Korean vocabulary and speaks about the topic. She speaks about plastic surgery in general in Sout Korea. Eyelid Surgery History Now this is where things get deep. I for one did not know this fact until doing some research on the topic. As said earlier some argue that this surgery is to wash out beautiful Asian features and to replace them with Western features. "The double-eyelid surgery was reportedly introduced to South Korea during the Korean War, which lasted from 1950 to 1953" and for this critics suggest that this surgery is a is a symbol of white America's history of cultural dominance over South Korea" (2015, Baer). This was a hard pill for me to swallow. No one wants to think that at all. It all started with this surgeon "American plastic surgery pioneer Dr. Ralph Millard, who was stationed in Seoul from 1950 to 1953 to do reconstructive surgery for the war wounded" (2015, Baer). Source says that he concentrated or basically spoke ill of the Asian monolid feature. Even in his reports he said some really racist comments and you can read them by clicking on the source link provided on the first block of this post. Women who married American soldiers and women who were prostitutes who wanted to appeal to American GI's and fit into American society demanded this surgery (2015, Baer). Controversial Topic As I said this topic has two sides. One feels that South Koreans are getting these surgeries especially the double eyelid surgery to look Western. While others just say people get it to look more beautiful or not as tired. People say Koreans reasons are not racial for getting these procedures. Seoul-based plastic surgeon Minhwa Na - says: "I would get serious complaints if I performed the procedure and the Korean patient gets a crease like the one of a Caucasian person. What people want is a natural crease that is suited to Asian faces," she said. "The whole idea that undergoing this surgery is an attempt to look white is absurd" (2015, Baer). Cultural critic Moonwon Lee tells says: "That while people don't personally believe they're trying to look white by getting their eyelids done or other plastic surgeries, they're still moving away from Korean-ness. The big eyes, small faces, and perky noses that are hallmarks of beauty in Korea aren't natural to most Koreans" (2015, Baer). When looking into the manner each side in.my opinion is valid. However, it seems like the surgeons support the more modern less racial argument and the cultural experts lean more so towards the racial or "Western wash" idea. My Thoughts... I feel like people will have different reasons to get any kind of surgery or alteration. Some may get it to look more Western and they may have issues with self hate. However, some may get it because they simply like the look and think it is trendy. Just like having straight hair in America. Some people people of color may straighten their hair to look more "White" due to self hate and others may do it because they like the look or style. At the end of the day who are we to judge? If no one is forcing this idea on you and you may be against it there is nothing to really get upset about. I hope people will love themselves and if they get these procedures it is because they like it as a trend not self hate.

3 Lifestyle Habits that can Cause Acne Breakouts
Your acne is coded in your genes and governed by your hormones. While these two factors are not in your control, your lifestyle which affects your skin equally, IS. Here are the most important lifestyle changes that you can make to reduce your acne breakouts... 1. Clean your mobile phone Your mobile phone is pressed against your cheeks while you chat away with friends. The bacteria from your skin gets transferred on to the screen and stays there till it gets pressed on your skin again. Besides this your phone may have food residue from the time that you were eating and texting and dust from lying on dirty surfaces. If you have acne prone skin, make sure you sanitize the surface of your mobile phone at least once every day. 2. Wash your face less often If you have oily skin which is prone to breakouts, chances are that you are washing your face more than twice daily. That, coupled with acne treatment AHA toners, salicylic acid serums and retinol night creams can over dry your skin. This leads your skin to produce even more oil which in turn feeds acne causing bacteria. Wash your face maximum 3 times a day. Once in the morning when you wake up and shower, once before sleeping at night and an additional time after a workout or outdoor exposure. 3. Reduce your carb intake Refined carbs such as bread, pasta and fried food have a high glycemic index. They increase blood sugar and cause a spike in the hormone Insulin. High glycemic foods are very inflammatory for the body and also disturb your gut bacteria. This in turn disturbs your skin microbiome. Increase your intake of fresh vegetables and salads instead. These are loaded with antioxidants which help your skin in healing faster. If you have been struggling with acne breakouts for a while, getting a little help from your dermatologist could go a long way in getting rid of your acne.
Bio Plasticizers Market Size | Share, Emerging Trends. Key Players, Future Prospects and Forecast by 2030
The global bio plasticizers industry was estimated at $1.3 billion in 2020, and is anticipated to hit $2.1 billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of 5.31% from 2021 to 2030. Allied Market Research published a report, titled, "Bio Plasticizers Market by Type (Epoxides, Sebacates, Succinic Acid, Citrates, Glycerol Esters, Others), by Application (Flooring and Walls, Film and Sheet Coverings, Wires and Cables, Coated Fabrics, Consumer Goods, Others): Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2020-2030." Request PDF Brochure: https://www.alliedmarketresearch.com/request-sample/2040 Drivers, restraints, and opportunities- Awareness among people for using sustainable and eco-friendly commodities, change in lifestyle, and increase in disposable income of consumers in Asia-Pacific, Middle East, and Latin America have boosted the growth of the consumer electronics and medical industries, thus driving the global bio plasticizers market. On the other hand, high cost of bio plasticizers is expected to hamper the growth to some extent. However, rise in R&D activities associated with bio plasticizers is anticipated to create lucrative opportunities in the industry. Key players in the industry- · DuPont · DOW Chemical Company · Vertellus Holdings LLC. · Evonik Industries · Lanxess AG · Matrìca S.p.A. · Emery Oleochemicals · Myriant Corporation · Bioamber Inc. · PolyOne Corporation Covid-19 scenario- · The outbreak of the pandemic has had a mixed impact on the global bio plasticizers market. Surge in demand for e-commerce during the pandemic had created a huge demand for films and the sheet covering from the packaging industry. Also, there was a steep increase. e in demand for medical equipment and other medical devices where plasticizers are utilized. · On the other hand, however, shutdown of construction projects in developing countries, such as India led to a decline in demand for bio plasticizers, which are utilized in the construction sector. Request For Customization: https://www.alliedmarketresearch.com/request-for-customization/2040 The flooring and walls segment to dominate by 2030- By application, the flooring and walls segment contributed to the major share in 2020, holding nearly one-fifth of the global bio plasticizers market. This is attributed to the fact that plasticization is an economic way to obtain waterproof, stain-resistant, anti-slipping, comfortable, and safe floors. The consumer goods segment, however, would cite the fastest CAGR of 6.17% during the forecast period, due to increase in use of bio plasticizers in consumer goods-related products. The epoxides segment to maintain the lion's share- By type, the epoxides segment accounted for the major share in 2020, holding nearly three-fifths of the global bio plasticizers market. Epoxide plasticizers consist of epoxy groups, such as epoxidized soybean oil (ESBO) or epoxidized linseed oil (ELO), and are formed via oxidation of an olefinic double bond to an oxirane structure. They provide thermal & UV stability to PVC articles during their production by techniques such as extrusion, injection molding, rotational molding, and spread coating. These factors drive the segment growth. The glycerol esters segment, on the other hand, is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR of 7.05% from 2021 to 2030. This is because glycerol ester-based bio plasticizers are produced by modification of the fully hardened castor oil structure with acetic acid, which is derived from the castor oil plant seeds. This modification leads to manufacture of low molecular weight acetylated glycerol monoester with improved compatibility and processability. Asia-Pacific garnered the major share in 2020- By region, the market across Asia-Pacific had the lion's share in 2020, generating more than half of the global bio plasticizers market. The same region is also projected to portray the fastest CAGR of 5.89% by 2030, due to high potential of the Indian market and huge utilization of bio plasticizers in China.
