K-pop idols who are breaking Korean beauty standards

Korean beauty standards are not progressive and have influenced thousands of women all over the world to change themselves with the help of numerous expensive plastic surgeries.

But gen Z is changing these conventions and bringing an era of inclusive beauty standards. These K-pop idols are not adhering to these old-fashioned beauty standards and are looking even more beautiful with their unique features and with a fan base, growing in millions.
