[Documentary] K-Pop to Double Eyelid Surgery (VICE, 2012)

Interesting video with a fresh perspective. Covers:

  • Seoul Fashion industry
  • Plastic surgery
  • Changing customs
  • Interview with two K-pop groups, one famous, one less famous.
  • Seoul cityscape: night fashion market, interactive digital devices in the subway
  • Interview with a Korean punk. I repeat. A Korean punk.


  • “[…] The Internet, which South Korea pretty much rules”
  • “You’re the most polite punk I’ve ever met, you’re a gentleman”
  • “If my boyfriend and I wore matching underwear in Britain, we’d be the laughing stock of the country”
