Miss Korea Contestants All Look the Same, Chinese Reactions


Recently, photos of the 20 Korean women who are contestants for the 2013 Miss Korea beauty pageant went viral on the internet.

As the world’s largest internet market and Korea’s neighbor, those photos quickly made their way to China as well, where Chinese netizens are no strangers to South Korea’s reputation for cosmetic plastic surgery.

From NetEase & Sina:

2013 Miss Korea Pageant Candidates Revealed, Accused of Looking All the Same

The 2013 Miss Korea Pageant contestants have been revealed, with many of the beauties looking as if they were the same person, difficult to differentiate, as if they were products from the same plastic surgery assembly line, devoid of individual characteristics.





















Comments from Sina:


[They] should have bar codes printed on their faces, so I can check where they got their plastic surgery.


An integration of Eastern and Western beauty aesthetics, resulting in the world’s most beautiful face, creating a mold for the sculpting and polishing of all the women in the world. Gentlemen, you marry a wife like this, and you’ll have the entire world. This is so inspirational.


You are as blind as a bat, bangzi are made out of plastic surgery, Miss Korea contestants looking neither human nor like ghosts, their faces grotesque, fake, ugly, as if they were all born of the same father, how can they be compared with Miss Hong Kong contestants? Miss HK and Miss Asia contestants win by actual strength, competing with each other in real beauty, in truth, goodness, and beauty, being celebrated for their natural beauty. Every year, the judging for the Miss HK Pageant is very strict; those who have had plastic surgery are all rejected!


Truly the same. I used to only think Africans all look the same, but turns out Koreans all look the same too.


Each and every Korean woman has had cosmetic surgery and facelifts so they all look the same. They look very pretty, but once they are married and have children, [the children] all look very ugly and resembles neither father nor mother, growing up and having to go get plastic surgery again, with one generation after another like this, so men need to be careful when it comes to marrying a pretty sassy lady only to give birth to an ugly duckling.


No kidding! Chinese [women] are natural [beauties], Korean women are manufactured, can the two even be compared!? SB


To tell the truth, no matter how much plastic surgery Chinese [women] go through, they still won’t be as pretty as Koreans.

Even foreign shit tastes better than Chinese to you.


I don’t think Korea is suited for hosting this kind of competition.


Attack of the clones…


Bullshit, no matter how tall they are, they’re all ~45kg, how is that possible?


No matter how pretty after cosmetic surgery, genes can’t be changed. Once the child is born, people will know she is a real beauty or not.

In the end all are eliminated, and the surgeon wins…

郭小芋头 [网易北京市网友]:

Typically a country possesses two types of people: men and women. Thailand possesses three types: man, women and ladyboys. Korea has four types: men, women who haven’t had plastic surgery yet, women who have had plastic surgery, and transsexuals.

尽日无人属阿宅 [网易江苏省无锡市网友] (responding to the comment above)

Our dynasty has five types: The rabble diaosi, second generation government official tall rich and handsome, kindergarten kids, black fungus, and apes.

Wrong! Korea has four types: men, women with unsuccessful plastic surgery, women with successful plastic surgery, and transsexuals.

Surgeries all done by the same surgeon.

[Surgical] techniques have improved, can go into mass production now.

网易湖北省襄阳市手机网友 ip:183.93.*.*

[You] can imagine how ugly Korean women must be without plastic surgery, all unwilling to reveal their real appearances.

被贬下凡的猫 [网易广东省广州市海珠区网友]:

Korea is now already the world’s most famous nation for the mass transformation of humans.

都市狩猎人 [网易广东省深圳市网友]:

Plastic surgery becoming mass produced, [I] don’t dare to marry Korean women!

网易浙江省温州市手机网友 ip:125.109.*.*

Without plastic surgery, how would bangzi survive?

xxhaha12345 [网易云南省丽江市网友]:

NMD [their] noses are all the same.

网易江西省手机网友 117.136.*.*:

It’s said they’re all very pretty, but after looking at them one time, there isn’t a single face I was able to remember.

网易吉林省长春市网友 ip:122.139.*.*

In the past, I’ve only heard of [contestants] wearing the same outfit, but now I see [contestants] wearing the same face, such an eye opener!

网取认真 [网易重庆市网友]:

Looks like mass-produced, and probably even ISO 9001 and 9002 certified.
