Yesterday, a female friend of mine came rushing to me over internet screaming bloody murder. I thought maybe something happened to her family. Maybe her brother. Or at least her dog. But instead I was sent the picture above. Then I was send the picture below.
For those of you who don’t know or are unsure, that is Soo Young from the popular Korean girl group, Girls’ Generation, also known as SNSD or in Japan, Shoujo Jidai. What caused all the uproar was that from the photographs, you could see, according to my female friend, a noticeable difference in the sharpness of her chin. She had plastic surgery…
I do think she looks better in the second picture, but not because of her chin’s shape. It’s strictly a personal preference that I like girls with less make up and less complicated hair. She’s more normally dressed and with black hair.That always does it for me.
But I’m getting away from my point. The reason I bring this conversation up is because that female friend, at one time confided in me that she wanted to fix a part of her face. I didn’t understand her paranoia and tried to assure her that she was thinking too much about it. I don’t know if I actually talked her out of it or if it’s just a delay for the inevitable.
But what I don’t get is why is it the same girl who I was trying to talk out of considering plastic surgery is now raving over a similar situation. Soo Young is gorgeous! She’s perfect. And I agreed. We both agreed that it’s most likely a case of self confidence or self image.
But will she learn that lesson? It’s always a frustrating ordeal for me when anyone says they want to get plastic surgery. I don’t understand it. I mean I realize the situation with women and how they are judged by a different standard. Men can be ugly as sin but as long as they’re capable or make a lot of money, those factors can be downplayed. But you still have to look at your face in the mirror every morning. Are you so unhappy that you want it changed? And then when you change it, where do you draw the line?
Confused and frustrated,
Also I’m not sure that Soo Young actually has had plastic surgery. Please don’t go taking this as a news report or gossip. What you can take from this is that Soo Young is definitely under appreciated. She’s always getting shafted. She gets the least lines and is always in the background. But I guess thats just another one of those things that I’ll never understand why.
Now tell me, how much of this was great because of her chin?
