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.

[JW Plastic Surgery Center Korea] Cirugías plásticas estilo Gangnam atraen a miles a Seúl - "Gangnam-style plastic surgeries attract thousands to Seoul" on Bloomberg

Cirugías plásticas estilo Gangnam atraen a miles a Seúl

Kylie Vu muestra una foto de su actriz surcoreana favorita en su iPhone y señala.

“Quiero un mentón como el de ella”, le dice a una consultora de belleza de la clínica BK Plastic Surgery en el elegante barrio de Gangnam, en Seúl.
Vu, de 30 años, gastó 15 mil dólares por un implante de mentón y un lifting facial después de viajar 2 mil 700 kilómetros desde Vietnam, donde administra cinco jardines de infantes.
La cantidad de turistas que viajan a Corea del Sur para someterse a una cirugía plástica aumentó más de cinco veces desde 2009 a 15 mil 428 el año pasado, informa el Ministerio de Salud.
Muchos, como Vu, visitan el llamado cinturón de belleza de cientos de clínicas que rodean las estaciones de metro de Gangnam, lugar donde estaba ambientado el video de “Gangnam Style” del cantante surcoreano Psy.
La tendencia está contribuyendo con el plan del gobierno de sumar unos 20 mil empleos, en su mayoría enfermeras e intérpretes, en la industria del turismo médico en los próximos cuatro años.
En BK Plastic Surgery, ubicada en un edificio de quince pisos con otras clínicas, 16 cirujanos cuentan con el apoyo de 30 intérpretes que hablan idiomas como el japonés, el mandarín, el cantonés y el vietnamita.
“El viaje vale la pena”, dijo Vu mientras se preparaba para someterse a una cirugía para la cual tomó como modelo a Kim Tae Hee, la imagen de la publicidad de heladeras de LG Electronics Inc. y protagonista de “Love Story in Harvard”, un drama coreano.
“La cirugía de Corea del Sur tiene fama de ser la mejor del mundo”, señala Vu.
Demanda impresionante
La cantidad de extranjeros que se operan ha aumentado conforme crece la aceptación de la industria en el país, dijo en una entrevista Kim Byung Gun, titular de BK Plastic Surgery.
El 32 por ciento de los consultados para una encuesta que realizó el gobierno municipal de Seúl en 2011 dijeron que estaban dispuestos a someterse a una cirugía plástica, frente a 21.5 por ciento de los entrevistados en 2009.
“Tengo pacientes de China y Japón desde fines de la década de 1990”, señaló Kim. “El número ha crecido más rápidamente desde entonces debido a la impresionante demanda de cirugía estética de los coreanos”.
Calcular las dimensiones de la industria es difícil porque el seguro nacional de salud de Corea del Sur no cubre la cirugía estética.
En 2011, se practicaron en el país un total de 649 mil 938 procedimientos cosméticos, según la Sociedad Internacional de Cirugía Estética, lo que equivale a 13 operaciones por cada mil personas, la cifra más elevada del mundo.
El gobierno participó en la promoción de la industria en el exterior, mientras que las clínicas más grandes también empezaron a adecuar los paquetes para los extranjeros, según Seul Chul Hwan, responsable de JW Plastic Surgery de Gangnam, que tiene diez consultores que pueden comunicarse en inglés, mandarín, ruso, tailandés, vietnamita e indonesio.
Alrededor del 3l al 40 por ciento de los pacientes de JW vienen de otros países, dijo Seul en una entrevista.
If we translate this article in English

Gangnam-style plastic surgeries attract thousands to Seoul

Kylie Vu shows a photo of her favorite South Korean actress on her iPhone and points out. 

"I want a chin like hers," she tells a beauty consultant at the BK Plastic Surgery clinic in the posh Gangnam neighborhood of Seoul. 
Vu, 30, spent $ 15,000 for a chin implant and facelift after traveling 2,700 kilometers from Vietnam, where she runs five kindergartens. 
The number of tourists traveling to South Korea to undergo plastic surgery has increased more than five times since 2009 to 15,428 last year , reports the Ministry of Health. 
Many, like Vu, visit the so-called beauty belt of hundreds of clinics surrounding the Gangnam subway stations,place where the video of "Gangnam Style" of the South Korean singer Psy was set. 

The trend is contributing to the government's plan to add some 20,000 jobs, mostly nurses and interpreters, to the medical tourism industry over the next four years. 
"The trip is worth it," Vu said as he prepared to undergo surgery for which he modeled Kim Tae Hee, the image of LG Electronics Inc. refrigerator advertising and the star of "Love Story in Harvard." , a Korean drama.
"South Korea's surgery is reputed to be the best in the world," says Vu. 
Impressive demand
The number of foreigners operating has increased as industry acceptance in the country grows
The 32 percent of those consulted for a survey conducted by the Seoul municipal government in 2011 said they were willing to undergo plastic surgery, compared to 21.5 percent of those interviewed in 2009.
"I have patients from China and Japan since late of the 1990s, "The number has grown faster since then due to Koreans' impressive demand for cosmetic surgery."
Calculating the dimensions of the industry is difficult because the South Korean national health insurance does not cover cosmetic surgery. 
In 2011, a total of 649,938 cosmetic procedures were performed in the country, according to the International Society of Aesthetic Surgery, which is equivalent to 13 operations per thousand people, the highest figure in the world. 
The government participated in the promotion of the industry abroad, while larger clinics also began to adapt the packages for foreigners, according to Seul Chul Hwan, head of JW Plastic Surgery of Gangnam, which has ten consultants who can communicate in English, Mandarin, Russian, Thai, Vietnamese and Indonesian.
About 3 to 40 percent of JW Plastic Surgery Korea patients come from other countries, Seul said in an interview.

[JW Plastic Surgery Center Korea] It is not 100% but what can help you to reduce swelling after "Plastic Surgery" (Surgery tips)


Today I would like to talk about the swelling and bruising after "Plastic Surgery"
It is very normal symptoms to have swelling and bruising, but amount of having swelling or bruising will be very different depends on:

1. What kind of plastic surgery you had?
2. How big was the surgery?
3. Was it combined surgeries?

Even though you had simple surgery, but there are chances of having much swelling or much bruises then you expected! When you research on other people's plastic surgery experiences, it seems that they do not have that much of swelling or the bruising.

Please do not expect that your recovery is going to be like theirs, because it is really depends on your body characteristics. (Normally minor surgery give less swelling and bruising compare to big surgeries but still minor or non-invasive surgery could give you big swelling and bruising as well)

There are few things that it could improve your swelling and bruising!
(This means it could help!! that doesn't mean it will make disappear.)

1. Pumpkin (Pumpkin soup, pumpkin juice, etcs.,)

2. Tomato

3. Seaweed

4. Water

5. Walk

Lastly you always have to think positive!!!!!
This is the most important process for your wound to be healed well.

[JW Plastic Surgery Center Korea] Wars in Korea??North Korea vs South Korea?? Is safe to go to Korea??? This is story from my friend who is currently living in Korea

Is Korea Safe?

We have all seen on the news reports of growing tension with North Korea.

The news makes it sounds like  a war is about to start and that it’s very dangerous to be in Seoul.
I have been living in Seoul for over eleven years now and I can honestly say I think cable news is just being sensational about it like they are with everything else.
They need to fill hours of television and keep it interesting so people continue to tune in so they can continue to sell advertising.

In my eleven years in Seoul, I have constantly seen on the news that North Korea does something then the U.S.A. says they need to stop. Both sides continue to push each other, but nothing ever happens.
I have family back in the United States who call me worried when they see something on the news. They hear that people in Seoul are very worried and preparing for a war. The reality couldn't be further from the truth, people are just living their life here, shopping, partying, working, hiking, and everything else you can think of. The one thing I don't see anyone doing is stressing out about war. Because they know, like I do, that the media is making a mountain out of a mole hill.

The way I see the situation is this, imagine you are cooking a piece of toast in your toaster. Now you left the toaster on a little to long so your toast is black and there is a little smoke. It’s not a big deal. Now imagine the media has heard about your burned toast. Instead of saying “Today some toast was burned” they say “Huge fire!!!”

To be completely honest, I feel much safer here in Seoul than I do in my hometown of Chicago. Chicago is a great city, but we do have a lot more crime than Seoul. Its not just me, being a foreigner means you meet a lot of ofter foreigners from many different countries, the one thing I hear over and over again is that Seoul is so much safer than there home countries.

If it were so dangerous they wouldn't be hosting the 2018 PyeongChang  Winter Olympic Games here. If the governments of world really thought it was that dangerous they would have moved the games to someplace else. If you are worried about traveling to South Korea because the threat of North Korea my advise is don't believe the scare mongering in the media. I highly recommend visiting South Korea.
