Fascinating documentary about Korean women

I work for this company, and they have a bunch of different web series that cover a variety of aspects of culture. Some of their series are better than others, however this one is actually quite interesting. I didn't embed the video because it is really gruesome—they sit in on a really young girl getting plastic surgery. The video talks to Korean women about a surgery which is called "Westernization". Korea is the number one place in the world to get plastic surgery (surpassing the US and Brazil) and getting surgeries to make your eyes look rounder or more "western" is common, so much so that it has become a typical graduation gift for high school graduates. Anyways, if you have half an hour watch it. It is a great documentary. It also talks about K-Pop.
