Contrary to past AX3 articles about the common occurrences of plastic surgery in Korea to have bigger eyes, higher nose bridges, and defined jaw lines, a man in Brazil has taken equally drastic measures to not necessarily fit that ideal. Instead, he has opted for smaller eyes, dark brown coloured contacts, and darker hair. The 25 year old man from Brazil, Xiahn, has gotten 10 procedures for $3100. Originally an exchange student in Korea where he saw its prevalence, he has said “I have no regrets, and I don’t intend to have any more procedures.”
In Pann, netizens made such comments as “Looks more Japanese… than Korean…” and “Now that our country’s advancing, we have white people wanting to look Asian… Usually it’s the Asians looking up to white people. ” Will this set a precedent for a different perception of beauty?
