The strange things you learn about Korean beauty! I know about double eyelid surgery, eyelid tapes. I thought I had heard about everything until someone told me about Aegyo sal.
What is Aegyo Sal?
Apparently Koreans are loving the eye bag look! By eye bags, I do not mean the dark circles we get when we’re tired! I’m talking about the little soft puffs of fat that some people get when they smile!
Take for example this girl here (just a random tumblr pic)
Koreans think that the presence of these bags makes you look more innocent and sweet in addition to making your eyes look bigger. There’s even special surgery procedure to create these bags if you don’t have them!
You can see the difference in the below image. Same women with and without aegyo sal!
Which look do you prefer?
