Welcome, my love buckets, to a brand new episode!

In this week's episode, we're going on another international trip.  Pack your bags as we're heading out to South Korea. 

South Korea is known as the cosmetic surgery capital of the world. We're going to delve into South Korea's hyper fixation on outward appearances and how this extreme focus on appearance pressures women and men to conform to societal expectations and spend a relatively significant amount of money on cosmetics as well as undergo specific cosmetic procedures.

We discuss the detrimental effects this has on mental health in the long run and how many South Korean women are fighting back against this rigid and Patriarchal society by creating the movement 'Escape the corset.'
