This interesting activity was prepared by a student of mine, Hazel Şen (Thanks Hazel; keep them coming). It wasn’t an issue I was aware of but my horror and incredulity grew as I read the material and watched the videos she selected. I am sure you will find it interesting too. Do your research and write about the reasons for South Koreans’ obsession with plastic surgery.
