I am incredibly offended by this article asaKorean. This article gives off the message that Koreans want to look more Western or like Caucasians. Having “white skin” doesn’t mean that they want to be Caucasian, but rather that they hope to be more pale. You have this all over the world — traditionally, for instance in Vietnam, people want pale skin because it means that you did not belong to the working class that got tan from working in the fields. It is true that many Koreans get plastic surgery, but the connotation of this article gives offavery bad and disrespectful image of Korea.
