South Korea's "face" is changing. Literally, Seoul, South Korea, becomes the city that has the most plastic surgery clinic. Here, out of every five women here, there is one woman who received at least one cosmetic surgery during their life. In South Korea, the pursuit of beauty is a kind of fashion, and a scalpel can make it in the simplest way. Because of this, South Korean parents induce their daughter to complete small changes of life.
Inspired by western standards and TV stars, people living in Gangnam zone of Seoul will reshape every part of their bodies, eyes, nose, chin and cheek bone. A cosmetic surgery is just like going to the dentist, they tend to be able to afford the reasonable price to obtain the high quality service. This is why some people in the past liked to go to Tokyo to reshape their eyes, now flew to Seoul for plastic surgery. This group of photos is offered by Alessandro Gandolfi.
