      I just watched a TV program in which random Koreans were interviewed in the street about plastic surgery. Incredibly absolutely no one said they were against. Those who haven’t had plastic surgery yet all said they were interested. Those Koreans who say not so many of them undergo plastic surgery are not telling the truth. The percentage is much, much higher than in other countries. And more and more men go under the knife, too. The interviewer concluded by saying “It’s very, very hard for ugly women to live in Korea.” She was Korean herself!

      Obviously you know nothing or very little about Koreans. I’ve studied Korean, have been to Korea and have known many Koreans in several countries. I’ve even had some good Korean friends. There are thousands of Koreans living permanently in Japan. I grew up with them. Japanese have no reason to have grudge against Koreans. You just don’t know what you are talking about. You probably don’t know any other language than English. There are so many comments like Ashley’s on the internet and most aren’t in English.

      You are the one who misread the article. Your question “How come the ugly ones who can’t afford plastic surgery don’t leave the country or just kill themselves?” is absurd. Ashley never said the ugly ones couldn’t live in Korea. Where did she say Korea was unlivable for ugly people? She said “By their society’s standards, they will have a hard time feeling smart enough or beautiful enough.” If you think that means ugly ones should leave Korea or kill themselves, it’s your problem.

      Koreans are obsessed people for sure. They are also completely brainwashed by their government and media. One has to be out of his mind to hold grudges about things that never happened to them. Most Koreans today aren’t victims of anything Japan did before 1945. I knew personally many Koreans who lived before 1945. They weren’t so resentful as today’s Koreans. You yourself are brainwashed. What do you realy know about Japan? Did you analyze any Japanese textbooks yourself? Did you analize anything written in Japanese? What you read must be what is written in other languages from the American or Korean point of view. That’s history written by the winners. You don’t know how Korea was annexed, how it developed with Japan, how Korea’ population doubled with Japan and how the war in Asia happened. Like most people who only read things written from the Allies’ point of view, your view is one-sided. Japan didn’t annex Korea all of a sudden. The war in China and Asia didn’t happen all of a sudden, either. There is a context for everything.  You don’t even know Japan itself had been threatened by Western countries, do you? Japan was afraid of being colonized. That’s why it modernized itself very quickly (while Koreans were asleep). You don’t know Russia was going to colonize Korea, do you? I bet you don’t know Korea wasn’t even an independent country before Japan’s annexation. It was a Chinese protectorate with no school nor industry. Koreans were suffering. They had a miserable life under the ruling class who never cared about them. In those days, almost all countries in the world were colonies or former colonies of Western powers. Only three countries in the world were independent (Japan, Thailand and Ethiopia). Japan only had two choices: become a military power itself or be colonized. Japan annexed Korea because it didn’t want Russia as a neighbor. Russia had been invading the Far East. We had war with Russia. There were Koreans who welcomed Japanese because they didn’t want to be colonized by Russians nor Chinese.  The war in China and Asia also had its reasons, but I won’t go into details here. I’ll just say Japan had economic and military reasons to fight back against Western pressure and presence. The countries Japan invaded had been Western colonies in case you don’t know. They all won independence after the war. May I remind you the Chinese themselves were killing one another in the 30s and 40s? Japan wasn’t the only foreign power in China, either. Even Germany’s war didn’t happen for no reason. The Germans had been cornered by the Versailles treaty. They had serious economic problems. Hitler emerged because the Germans were suffering too much and they were looking desperately for a savior.  Korea was part of Japan during WWII. If Japan was an agressor, so was Korea. Korean officers and soldiers were with Japanese, not with the Allies. Korea was also an agressor in Vietnam. It sent 300,000 troops for a war that had nothing to do with Korea. Koreans massacred innocent Vietnamese. To this day, they pretend nothing happened. I’ve heard most south Koreans know nothing about that part of Korean history. I suggest you study history a little more objectively before making ignorant criticisms. It’s not as simple as you seem to think.  Ask yourself why many Koreans and Uyghurs are in China, why Tibet is part of China, why China intervened in the Korean war and what happened to the Indians who were the real Americans. The Americas have all been occupied by foreigners. Hawaii was invaded and annexed by Americans if you don’t know. The Philippines were an American colony, too. I could go on and on. History is not about good people vs bad people.

      I liked your post. Your main point is the importance of “inner beauty” rather than that of appearance. Some people don’t seem to get it.  I’maJapanese who’s lived in several countries including the US. I’ve studied Korean and had some good Korean friends. One thing that always shocks me about Koreans in general is their very obsessive mentality. It seems they only want to look the same and think the same things. There’s apparently no diversity in their mind. It’s been almost 70 years since Japan left Korea, but those who weren’t even born before 1945 hold incredible grudges against Japanese. Young Koreans weren’t victims of any Japanese actions. But they expect us to apologize over and over and over again for something they didn’t even experience. 70 years later!Iknew older Koreans who did experience Japan’s rule. Even they weren’t so obsessed nor hateful. Unfortunately some Korean Americans are hostile towards Japanese, too.Ibet most of them have never had any personal contact with Japanese. They don’t really know us, but they have this fixed idea that Japanese are all bad and should be punished or even exterminated.  I’ve met many people from former colonies of France, UK, the Netherlands, etc. They had no grudge at all. They were too young to know the old days, so there was no reason to be angry personally. Koreans are different. They pass their old grudges onto their children and grandchildren. It’s such an unhealthy state of mind. They are so obsessed that it’s impossible to reason with them about history or our current relationship. They never stop accusing and demanding apologies. For how many more centuries is this going to continue? Koreans are obsessed the same way about their looks.Iunderstand why you gave up. They won’t even listen.
