If you told us that South Korea was releasing a new television show based on plastic surgery, we admit that we wouldn’t be too surprised. After all, we’ve already seen twin sisters look completely different after appearing on the show Let’s Beauty.
We will, however, admit that we were caught off guard with the new Korean show Back to My Face. The popular show does focus on plastic surgery, but it has a big twist: the show focused on “reverse makeovers” that allow contestants to go back to their original appearance.
Back to My Face features contestants who have had 10 or more procedures done and may have some regrets about their decisions. Contestants are encouraged to go back to their original appearance through a number of “therapy sessions” such as getting feedback from strangers about their pre-surgery photos.
After their sessions, the contestants decide if they want to have reconstructive surgery to remove implants or undo excessive plastic surgery that has been done.
Although the show has gathered quite a bit of attention for itself, netizens have mixed feelings towards the show. Some claim that Back to My Face has a good message and reminds people to embrace what they are born with. Others have complained that the show tries to be redeeming, but it is still about more surgery.
Watch the preview below and tell us what you think.
