INTERESTING! THEY REALLY LOOK ALIKE WITH MAKE UP !
An otherwise-ignored South Korea beauty pageant has come under a wave of scrutiny after a photo of its contestants went viral on Reddit.The photo of the 20 Miss Korea 2013 contestants, which was originally posted on a Japanese blog, was almost unanimously bashed by Reddit users for what they say represents a growing trend in plastic surgery that makes the women look REMARKABLY SIMILAR TO ONE ANOTHER. Netizens said plastic surgery in Korea is rapidly wiping away ethnic Korean features and made all women look similar, and westernized. This week, photos of the contestants when they were in training in April surfaced, this time showing the girls mostly with bare faces. It turns out that what made the girls look remarkably alike isn't overzealous plastic surgery, but the handiwork of very skilled, if not very creative, makeup artists. Whether these women still had something done on their faces isn't known, but at least without heavy makeup, it isn't as difficult as before to tell them apart.
