Thou art more lovely and more temperate:
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
And summer's lease hath all too short a date..."
"...Nor shall Death brag thou wander'st in his shade,
When in eternal lines to time thou growest:
So long as men can breathe or eyes can see,
So long lives this and this gives life to thee."
Sonnet 18 - William Shakespeare
Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder. Sounds true but I believe what's more important in it is that the personality counts more. Well lets take this scenario, imagine dating a beautiful eye candy (Guy's "dream" when young and sometimes, it continues till death though not all guys are that la. Hehe) and so you met her for the first time in a coffee shop.
She's so mesmerizing, so pretty, walks with a style. Is she a model? This isn't another dream right? Wow!
But the moment she starts talking... ugghhh... Same goes to some guys for most girls just to be fair to my female readers. :P But that's another story. Being a model is a dream of many and even in Korea, being pretty (for girls) and handsome (guys) are paramount. Getting a good job is among the many reasons.
Some Koreans then resorted to having plastic surgery to look good. Face lift, double eyelid, nose job and so on, you name it, they have them all. Though not everyone here have done plastic surgery but having one here is not a big issue. Some parents here encourage their daughter to have plastic surgery too. Anyway, whether plastic surgery or not, I couldn't care less.
An ordinary blogger :)
Nevertheless, being a foreigner in Korea (IF YOU ARE ONE), you have the chance to be a model. Don't believe me? Erm.. You should now! Well, the catch is only that you have to be a foreigner (27 years or younger) in Korea and is confident enough to say "YES I AM PRETTY/HANDSOME!!!" deep down in your very own heart - you need the confidence.
You are almost done! If you are selected (2 men and 2 women), you will be paid 400,000 Won (almost 340 USD), accomodation in Jeju Island, meals and round air ticket from Gimpo airport to Jeju Airport.
