Today’s Daily Rant is about the joys of plastic surgery and the effects it has had on fans and idols in Korea. It’s a difficult rant to keep non-biased though since this subject will appear everywhere on Korean news and shows.

As we all know, rumors of plastic surgery will even happen to people who we all know probably haven’t had it. At the same time we get the idols such as ZE:A’s Kwanghee who will just admit it publicly. If we take a look deeper into this though, why do idols do it? It’s making a plastic fantastic world, it reminds me of Barbies! I mean everyone wants to be pretty and amazing but is going under the knife pushing it too far? I think it is.

When I googled “korean idols plastic surgery” I was shocked at some of the people who are ‘accused’ of going under the knife, even though some times they are comparing childhood photos to the latest ones. Kim Hyun Joong and Park Jungmin from SS501 were two of the idols who appear in search results. Then there’s more obvious ones such as Lee Hyori, Solbi and Kwanghee. I’m not sure about you but I think idols should just stay natural, it’s making me question whether the music industry is more about the idols than the music. I think idols shouldn’t feel the need to have plastic surgery, instead be happy with the features they have. Or at least take a stand if they’re forced into it.

What do you think of this? Do you agree that idols should stay natural?
