I'm truly fascinated by the obsession of some South Korean women to transform themselves into this animesque beauty ideal through extreme plastic surgery. This is not the case of this woman, however. Her story is quite sad.

According to RocketNews 24, her husband "got fed up of her plain features and sun spots and had filed for divorce." When that happened she sent her application to a plastic surgery reality TV show—apparently, that's a thing in South Korea—and she was accepted.

The surgeons remodeled her into a completely different person. So much her own son wouldn't recognize her. She met the husband after the metamorphosis was completed, "who upon seeing her immediately backtracked on his divorce plans, promising he'd never mention it again." What a fucking asshole.
