In the video: Fashion Seoul Fashion Week – K-Pop to Double Eyelid Surgery, we see the importance of the fashion in South Korea. South Korea is well-known for its fashion called K-Pop, in which many people in South Korea take serious. One thing that struck out to me in this video was the concepts of beauty. South Korea’s look mentioned in the video is flawless and perfection. Women who undergo plastic surgery aims for the ideal westerner look. These Korean women get surgery on their faces because they want to be considered beautiful. “Fashion is merely a product of social demands, even though the individual object which it creates or recreates may represent a more or less individual needs” (Simmel, pg 308). According to Simmel, fashion is a social demand in way of finding ones their own individuality or a way to fit in society. We can compare this quote to the surgeries that these Korean women experience because they feel recreating themselves will give them confidence and beauty but also chance to change that their destiny.
