This story is just unbelievable. Beautiful Chinese woman gives birth to an 'ugly' baby so husband sues his wife for $120, 000...and wins. Judge says the plastic surgey she underwent in South Korea equated fraud. Very Happy

Reality can be freakier than fiction at times.

It's something I never gave much thought to, but the 'offspring' factor must cause some embarassment at times. Check out this family (second picture on the right).

Geez, if a man won such a lawsuit in Korea, imagine what kind of precedent it would set. It would be a disaster.

The true "ugly side to Asia's plastic surgery culture" trend is how it's marketed to teen girls.

What are you talking about? It is now obvious to everyone here that it was a hoax. Nobody's denying it. The scandal is that reputable newspapers were still reporting it as fact relatively recently. But noone here is failing to "let facts get in the way". If you've nothing to post, don't post.

Nowhere in your OP does it say the story was proven to have been a hoax nor that it dates back a few years.

Your message:

Some Korean women are so beautiful then they get plastic surgery and lose their natural beauty. Plastic surgery in some cases is okay to fix birth defects and such but double eyelid and nose surgery has gone to far in this country.
