This podcast is about plastic surgery in South Korea. South Korean Hanbi Kim shares her experience with plastic surgery and why she chose to change her nose.

During my stay in Seoul, South Korea, I realized that beauty is an important factor in the South Korean society. The term “Korean beauty” is becoming well known, Korean beauty products are gaining popularity in other parts of the world, and South Korea has in the recent years become famous for their many plastic surgery clinics.

This podcast is about plastic surgery in South Korea. South Korean Hanbi Kim, whose English name is Robin, met me in a rented study room in Gangnam to talk about her experience and thoughts on plastic surgery. For Robin, getting a “nose job” three years ago, when she was 20 years old, wasn’t a serious decision. Robin explains “I was generally fine with my face (…), but if you could fix one thing, I said it would be the tip of my nose, because it was kind of pointing downward instead of upward”. Even though she encourages others to stay happy with their natural look, for Robin beauty is an important factor related to getting a job. A constellation, Robin says, that the South Korean society needs to work on; accepting people for who they are. After ending the interview with Robin, we continued our conversation over dinner. Here, Robin and her friend explained that talking about plastic surgery among friends, is like talking about purses: giving each other advice on where to get plastic surgery and exchanging experiences. Also Robin explains that getting plastic surgery is a quite normal graduation gift among her circle of friends.

In this podcast, Doctor Chul Hwan Seul and employee Jay Han from JW Plastic Surgery Clinic in Seoul explain why clients are getting plastic surgery done and how the plastic surgery market is increasing. According to Doctor Chul Hwan Seul, plastic surgery clients explain that they wish to look more beautiful, look more like celebrities, or their husbands wish to have a more beautiful wife. He continues explaining that it is mostly women who get plastic surgery, but this does not mean it is not popular for men as well. Furthermore Doctor Chul Hwan Seul explains that the clinic has also seen an increase in the number of foreigners coming to South Korea to have plastic surgery.

The expansion of plastic surgery in South Korea has also been discussed among scholars. According to the text “The Beauty Complex and the Cosmetic Surgery Industry” (2004) by Professor Woo Keong Ja, the expansion of plastic surgery in South Korea is a consequence of patriarchal ideology and consumptive capitalism. In the text she says “In order to achieve higher and more profitable positions in the labour market, women have no choices but to adjust their bodies to the standard concept of femininity. This is where cosmetic surgery enters the picture” ( p. 58). Professor Woo Keong Ja states that patriarchal ideology influences womens lives in such a way that their values lie in their physical appearance. Furthermore, she points out that womens cosmetic surgery issue is caused by society, plastic surgery being an readily available solution to honor expectations to womens appearance created by patriarchal ideals.

It can be discussed, whether beauty has become a capital in the Korean society. In the podcast Robin explains that in order to get a job beauty is imperative. Furthermore through Doctor Chul Hwan Seuls knowledge on plastic surgery clients, we hear about cases where women get plastic surgery because of their spouses’ desire for their wife to be more attractive. Both explanations are consistent with “The Beauty Complex and the Cosmetic Surgery Industry”, coming to the conclusion that plastic surgery is a consequence of beauty as a social construction.

As the center of Korea's medical tourism, JW received an enormous amount of international media attention such as BBC and TF1 news to report its success. Many patients from overseas come all the way to JW Plastic Surgery Center Korea to enhance their beauty or to fix their problems from their previous plastic surgery performed by other surgeons.

To cater to the needs of foreign patients, JW has in-house translator services which can help foreign patients in English, Chinese, Vietnamese, Russian, and Thai. Patients can also meet friendly staffs, even doctors can kindly explain how they can help or improve patients' looks with very professional and impressive skills. Han, who is a global marketing manager in JW said, "If there is someone who can look after you during the whole surgery time and speak your language, you will feel much comfortable and less nervous. That is why JW Plastic Surgery Center Korea has in-house translator services to provide the most comfortable medical care."

How to find proper specialized plastic surgeons in South Korea

Today I'm going to write a blog about "How to find proper specialized plastic surgeons in South Korea" and "How to find legit plastic surgeons in Korea".

First of all there are so many plastic surgeons and plastic surgery center in Korea, but you really do not know which plastic surgeons or plastic surgery clinics are legit because:

  1. You do not know Korean language so can't get true information from Koreans.
  2. You just google popular clinics, so you just go for one of them to have a surgery without having enough knowledge about your surgeons.
  3. You have done researches and break out to 2~4 clinics, but sometimes fake information can lead you to make wrong or fault decision.

I know that it is really hard to see, research and check which plastic surgeons or clinics are trustworthy and devoted themselves to development of plastic surgery field in Korea.

Korean doctors degree system is quite different than other countries. They have specific surgery fields system in Korea.

As an example:

    1. Difference between ENT surgeons and Plastic surgery surgeons
    ENT surgeons and Plastic surgeons both are allowed to perform plastic surgery but their title of doctoral degree, ways or techniques of performing rhinoplasty are different. Also their purpose of performing surgeries are different each other.
    2. Difference between General surgeons and Plastic surgery surgeons
    General surgeons and plastic surgeons both are allowed to perform plastic surgery such as breast augmentation, breast reconstruction, abdominoplasty, tummy tuck, liposuction, and etc., but differences with these two surgeons are:
  • Techinique of surgery itself
  • Purpose of surgery
  • Mindset of surgeons performing surgery (Plastic surgery can't help considering aspect of beauty more than general surgeons).
  • Suture method
  • Knowledge

This is why you have to research about your surgeons background!!

Now I will tell you how to search and see if they are board certified plastic surgeons.

They post "trained in plastic surgery" in Korean language on their Korean websites but post "Certified plastic surgeon" in English websites. DO NOT FALL FOR THAT TRICK!!

  1. Surgeons who graduated with plastic surgery degree: "성형외과 전문의" which it means they are specialized or specialist in plastic surgery. (as you can see from the above picture that it actually says "성형외과" on their surgeons certificate)
  2. Surgeons who had trained plastic surgery: "성형외과 수련의" which it means they had trained in plastic surgery.
  3. Surgeons who studied in plastic surgery: "성형외과 전공의" which it means they had medical resident in plastic surgery.

Please do check on their Korean website and English website. If you want to have it done by plastic surgery specialists.

1. http://www.prskorea.co.kr/English/

2. https://www.isaps.org/    (this site is not for all the surgeons but most of famous plastic surgeons will be found in this websites)

There could be more sites but these are the most common one's that you can check easily :)

Don't get confused!! South Korea celebrates opening of 2nd terminal at Incheon Airport

South Korea's transport ministry and Incheon International Airport Corp. (IIAC) held an event on Friday to celebrate the opening of a second passenger terminal at Incheon International Airport.

The second terminal at the Incheon airport begins commercial operations on Jan. 18, with Korean Air Lines Co. scheduled to make the first flight from the new terminal at 7:55 a.m. to Manila, the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport said in a statement.

The ceremony, attended by 1,000 people, was also held four weeks ahead of the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympic Games, which are slated for Feb. 9-25, to promote the expansion of the country's main gateway to the world, the statement said.

Korean Air and three foreign full-service carriers -- Delta Air Lines, Inc., Air France and KLM Royal Dutch Airlines -- will also serve passengers in the second terminal, the ministry said.
IIAC invested 4.93 trillion won (US$4.6 billion) from June 2009 to December 2017 to build the second terminal.

In 2015, Korean Air and Asiana Airlines Inc. wanted to move to the second terminal from the existing first terminal.

The government asked them to submit their operating plans for the new terminal. Korean Air was selected over Asiana Airlines after an analysis of their plans, the ministry said.
The three foreign airlines were selected because they have business ties with the Korean flagship carrier through the SkyTeam airline alliance, an official said. The airlines share passenger transfer and code-share programs.

Asiana and 85 other airlines will use the first terminal.
The first terminal served 62 million passengers and handled 2.92 million tons of cargo in 2017. With the addition of the second terminal, the Incheon airport can handle a total of 72 million passengers and 5 million tons of cargo annually, the statement said.

Korean Airline, Delta Airline, Air France, KLM airline will be at the Incheon Airport 2nd Terminal.

So do not confuse with your terminal!

[JW Plastic Surgery Center Korea] Breaking News in 2017 Jonghyun from Shinee passed away R.I.P. Jong Hyun from SHINEE

After Jonghyun passed away by reported suicide on Monday (Dec. 18), a friend of the SHINee member shared a post-mortem letter from the K-pop star on social media on Tuesday (Dec. 19).
The content was published on Instagram by Dear Cloud’s Nine9 (born Jang Heeyeon). The singer wrote that she had been entrusted with it by Jonghyun (born Kim Jonghyun), and had received his family’s approval to post it on social media. It's unclear when the letter was written.
In the note, Jonghyun addressed his struggle with depression and wrote his final farewell.
 "I'm broken from the inside,” wrote Jonghyun, reports Yonhap. “The depression that has slowly nibbled me away has now devoured me, and I couldn't overcome it. I thought being a doctor was so easy when blaming it on my character in a quiet voice. It's amazing that it hurts this much. No one alive is more tormented nor weaker than myself.”
He continued by addressing the woes of his career: “Becoming famous was probably not my life. They tell me that's why I'm having a hard time ... Why did I choose that? It's funny that I'm able to endure this much.” The star, who was 27-years-old when he passed away, was a teenager when SHINee released its first single, “Replay,” in 2008.
“Tell me this is enough, that I did well," the letter read in its conclusion. "Even if you can't smile, don't send me off blaming me. You did well, you did good. Goodbye."
Jonghyun of South Korean boy band SHINee performs onstage the SM Entertainment The Ballad Vol.2 Joint Recital at COEX on Feb. 12, 2014 in Seoul, South Korea. 

Jonghyun’s memorial service began on Tuesday in Seoul at the Asan Medical Center, with the four surviving members of SHINee joining his family as primary mourners. A separate venue was set aside by SHINee's label, SM Entertainment, to serve as a location where fans could pay respects to the artist.
The SHINee member was found unconscious on Monday after sending his sister alarming texts, and was confirmed dead at a Seoul hospital. On Tuesday, Seoul police closed its investigation and concluded that the K-pop star had died by suicide.
A prominent singer-songwriter in the K-pop world, Jonghyun was a dominating presence in SHINee, a boy band recognized for its precise choreography and powerful music. Following his debut with the quintet in 2008, the star also pursued a solo career over the past few years; his first EP, Base, peaked at No. 1 on the World Albums chart in 2015. His most recent album, Story Op. 2, was released in April.
