In Korea, Beauty Evolves on Its Own Terms

“Are you half? You have big eyes, for an Asian.” “You have bigger eyes than some of my white friends!” “Have you gotten double-eyelid surgery? Your eyes are pretty.” “You have really western features, for a Korean.” These are a few of the many common statements I have been asked[Read More…]

Proving That Ideas of Beauty Are Simply Unnatural

“What is art? What makes it good or bad, and who decides?” I was re-watching the film “Mona Lisa Smile” when I considered the broader implications of Professor Katherine Watson’s questions.

We all have some weird habits that range from fingernail biting to eating “victory” breakfasts on the morning of a big test. Pretty much everyone has something unique they like to do when no one’s watching. And what’s mine you ask? After I shower, I like to sit around naked[Read More…]
