Hi, I just got back from a trip to Korea and was surprised to find out that despite what Koreans constantly claim on the internet, typical people do not resemble all of those pictures of the celebrities that Koreans love to post on internet forums. Most Korean girls and guys who have not yet had plastic surgery have really flat wide faces with small eyes. I think that the actress Margaret Cho has a face that is very representative of the typical Korean. In one photo, her face looks almost twice as big as the caucasian man next to her.

Anyways, I guess they have their own style or version of beauty since out of all the Asians, Koreans seem to be most obsessed with claiming that they are the best looking.

I don't think he is being racist. I mean, if that's what he saw, that's what he saw. Margaret Cho did lose alot of weight.

Well, Koreans are not as homogeneous as you describe.

Personally, I think the OP (with only 2 posts here) is trying to stir things up a bit. icon_neutral.gif

That being said though, having lived in Korea for years i can say this about how Koreans look: there's a lot of variety here. Sure, some people might look more "typically Korean" than others, but by and large, you'd be surprised with the amount of variety you'd see on the streets of Seoul.
