This is so weird to me. Apparently in Korea, beauty is so emphasized in culture that the nation is fast becoming the world’s #1 cosmetic surgery capital. Photographer Jean Chung‘s photos of Han Ji-Hye’s face transformation here was part of an ongoing project that followed 5 individuals vying for the prize of becoming Korea’s 4th “Cosmetic Surgery Model”.

In the photos shown here, photographer Jean Chung shows how Han Ji-Hye’s chin and the story of how it made her the subject of teasing won her the prize of getting $15,000 worth of surgery for free.
