SOOOO!!! This topic is one of the most interesting to me!!

Korea is very homogenous, and as a result people tend to go towards one look of beauty. There is only ONE standard of beauty here. And here are the main components of being beautiful in Korea.

The first thing that Koreans think is beautiful is pale skin. There are many BB creams and other beauty products that people will use in order to achieve white skin.

They also focus a lot on the eyes! They like eyes with out folds that are big. For example if you look at Taeyang from Big bang, he has small eyes with only one eyelid (monolid) and an in fold(WHICH I THINK IS SO ATTRACTIVE) Fyi. LOL But in Korea bigger eyes are desired.

Also something interesting is that they want the back of their head to be rounded. Ive noticed (after Korean people pointing it out to me) that Koreans do tend to have flatter heads in the back and front. They usually get perms that make the back of their head look more rounded.

They think small faces are also beautiful. Go ah ra, a Korean drama actress supposedly has a very small face and is considered very beautiful.

Along with a small face they think that having a tall nose bridge is also beautiful.

Koreans also like to have curvy bodies! Mind you, this is Korean curvy, not Western curvy. As small as I am my students think I have a big booty! LOL But they like to have X lines or S lines.

If you look at an X, you will see that it is small in the middle where the 2 lines cross. This represents your waist. They want to have a small waist like an X.

An S line is representative of a woman with a nice booty and bust. If you picture a woman standing sideways. BUT NOT TOO BIG!!!!!!!

The way we spend money on cosmetic dentistry seems silly to korean people. Teeth aren't important to Korean people just like the back of someones head shape isn't important to us. We usually dont even notice head shape unless its REALLY different. SO, if people have some problems with their teeth its not a big issue in considering beauty. Now their teeth are certainly not bad, but overall they dont pay as much attention to them as we do in the United states.
