[YAKSON] INTERESTING! THE STANDARD OF SOUTH KOREAN BEAUTY?
The standard of beauty is changing over time.
But if there is one fact that does not change, it is that “men like beautiful women.”
Of course, you should not judge a person by appearance only!
However, it is true that majority of women in the world have a desire to be pretty.
In the past, the 'symbol of fertility' was considered to be a standard of beauty, regardless of the nation.
So, specifically, the voluptuous or plump body was the standard of beauty.
But nowadays, the V-line shape of face, long and pretty legs are the criteria of beautiful woman.
Of course, the standards of beauty in the world cannot be the same.
Generally speaking, Aphrodite in Greek mythology, Cleopatra in the West, and Yang Guifei in China are considered to be typical beauty, and the standard of beauty is very different in each period of time / continent.
A picture became once popular online which shows beautiful girls in different countries.
The photo collected the most beautiful and popular female celebrities by country, including Korea, USA, India, Japan, China, and UK. Netizens who saw the photo said, "I think Korean women are the most beautiful among the people," "The country of beauty is indeed South Korea." They expressed positive response to the Korean beauty.
Moreover, there is huge attention to Korean entertainers nowadays, due to the Korean wave – Korean drama and K-pop; and it has also been influencing the standard of beauty, globally.
If so, how have the standards of Korean beauty changed?
It would be meaningful to take a look at the history of beauty of Korea to see the difference between the past and present!
