Everybody talks about these plasticky things about Korean women, but it came out when people began to boil with jealousy about them. Statistics do not go with it. Nor does the actual observation support it. European guys love Korean girls not because they have this shape or that shape with their eyes and noses, or chins, but because they are tall, leggy, and really sexy bodies with extremely fair skins. You don't get these qualities through plastic surgery. They are born with them. Not only that, most scientists agree that Korean women have the highest IQ level in the world.

I don't know about highest IQ. However, they probably have the nicest figures/bodies from what i've seen. Face wise, they're not naturally attractive compared to the Japanese or Thais. They're brutally honest which can work both ways. Definitely a keeper if you can find one....devotion is a good way to describe the ones i've met.

Yes, big eyes are now the standard of beauty...it wasn't always so in Korea, though.

Korean Women - dont have big eyes

they have so much plastic surgery and this is how bad it goes:
16th birthday -eyes
17th birthday -nosejob
18th birthday -mouth

source: i have S. Koreans friends and it is very common and normal for them to do it

but some of them do look awesome without it

About the IQ, first google, 'national IQ rankings.' The national IQs and its consequences on human life have been extensively studied in psychology and social sciences. Korean men and women rank the top in almost all intelligence-related indexes. I would rather direct you to specialist articles. Read them all carefully and you might want to start from there for further studies. Particularly pay attention to the Minnesota Transracial Adoption Study (1976 & 1992), the largest and best-known transracial study ever done. Having been involved with Korean businessmen and women for more than 20 years, I tend to agree with the findings by Professors Rushton, Jensen, Vanhanen, Lynn, Meisenberg, etc. But I have to say that the highest IQ level of Koreans should be understood against the backdrop of the higher average IQ level of all North East Asians in comparison to Caucasians, Hispanic, South Asians, or Blacks.

East Asians have the highest IQ but they're not the standard or beauty in the world. IQ and perceived attractiveness dont necessarily go together so I dont know why you brought it up

Facial surgery or plastic surgery in general isn't common in NK for obvious reasons, but the 'elite' have been known to have it done.

You can point to the western media/social media and growing affluence in S.Korea for that.
