Meanwhile in South Korea of the Day: Beauty-Obsessed Koreans are Getting Permanent Duckface Surgery
- -

According to Kotaku, a cosmetic surgery known as "liptail surgery" (입꼬리 수술 or "ipkkori") has taken off in South Korea, giving people a permanent duck face look. Historically, the process has been used to undo the natural frowns that aging can cause, giving the edges of one's lips a youthful, upturned look, but it has recently become popular with South Koreans who work in the service industry.

Just because we're nearly over it in the U.S. doesn't mean "Gangnam Style" is waning in Korea -- at PSY's recent concert at Kyonggi University in Seoul, the crowd practically becomes part of the track.

It's almost enough to give you chills.

Who knew the invasion from the Korean peninsula was going to be in the form of song. We're just getting started, folks, and we already have some leaders in the clubhouse.
