This was a show I did a few weeks ago about the Korean obsession with plastic surgery.  Everywhere you go these days there are advertisements for everything from a nip/tuck to a full face restructure.  Double eyelid surgery is as common as getting your ears pierced, and is often given as a reward for good grades in school.

  •  Double eyelid
