Women traveling to South Korea for facial plastic surgery are finding it difficult to re-enter their home countries because they look absolutely nothing like they do in their passport photo. When reached for comment, South Korea's neighbor to the north had this to say, "Our space program has already colonized planets outside the solar system." North Korea, ladies and gentlemen! I wish I could lie to myself that hard.
According to Korean sites Onboa and Munhwa (via tipster Sang), some Korean hospitals are now issuing a "plastic surgery certificate" at the request of overseas visitors. Customs officials, of course, are strict about making sure people match the mugs in their passports. These certificates can supposedly help make clearing immigration go smoother so officials don't have to call hospitals to confirm procedures.
The certificates include the patient's passport number, the length of their stay, the name and location of the hospital as well as the hospital's official seal to certify the document. Travellers can show the forms to immigration officials on their return trip home.
You know, sometimes I wish I was prettier. But I am way too terrified of going under the knife to do anything about it. Like, I only go to the doctor when I'm positive I'll be dead within the week if I don't. I am not trying to die just to get my nose fixed. "Well I'd consider it." *covering face* Oh God, is it really that bad? "It looks like a boxer's ear." Get away, I SAID DON'T LOOK AT ME.
Thanks to Gary E, who's considering getting a little work done on his cheeks. Aww, but I think you look great as a chipmunk!
