Korean Woman Gets Plastic Surgery to Look Like Miranda Kerr

Story by James S. Kim

Complete makeovers aren’t uncommon. Some of us at some point might need a change in how we do things or in how we look. The question is, then, how far are you willing to change, and what type of person are you willing to become?

For one South Korean woman, it was a question of whom. On a recent episode of Martian X-Files, a Korean reality TV show that spotlights eccentric and unique non-celebrities, one of the guests was a woman who underwent plastic surgery to look like Australian model Miranda Kerr.

The wannabe emphasized that she only had work done on her eyes and nose, according to Soompi. Even from a young age, she said, people would tell her mother that she looked like an “adorable non-Korean child” and asked if her father was from overseas. One time, the guest and her mother got into a taxi. The driver, thinking that they were foreigners, asked where they were from and was surprised when they responded in Korean.

The segment followed the guest as she goes through her makeup ritual. She begins with the universal step one, foundation. The next step is her eyebrows, to which she adds a sharp taper to imitate Kerr’s. She spends the most time on the eyes, then adds some emphasis to her lips to round out the cosmetics portion.

The final step is to add in the colored contacts, given that the hair is the proper style and color. Add in some posing sessions in front of the mirror, and she’s good to go.

So why the obsession with Miranda Kerr, who visited Seoul to great fanfare last June. Some say that Kerr’s appeal is because her looks are a perfect combination of cute and sexy, a look many East Asian young women wish to achieve. For some, by any means necessary.

For those unwilling to go under the knife, here’s an extensive but relatively painless step-by-step makeup tutorial on creating the Miranda Kerr look by YouTube makeup artist Michelle Phan.

Miranda Kerr Stars in Weird Japanese Commercial

You may know her as the extremely gorgeous Victoria’s Secret model. Or maybe you know her as the wife of equally gorgeous Orlando Bloom. Well now you can know her as spokeswoman for a Japanese laundry detergent, Bold.

For the first commercial, Kerr interacts in a friendly conversation with her neighbors… while driving a pink car filled with laundry detergent. If you think thats a little weird, wait until you a load of the actual dialogue:

Neighbor A: What have you been up to?
Miranda: I went shopping.
Neighbor B: You bought too much!
Miranda: *shrug and a wink*
Neighbor A: Ah, Bold!
Miranda: It’s so cute and pink!
Neighbor A: Pink?! Anyway you look at it, it’s blue!
Miranda: The liquid is pink!
Neighbor A & B: It’s pink!
Miranda: It’s pink!

If you didn’t notice- pink is obviously something to be excited about. Check it out for yourself:

The next commercial that Kerr stars in shows her actually purchasing the massive amount of detergent. Unfortunately, this time Kerr doesn’t get to show off her (rather impressive) Japanese speaking skills. All she needs to do is strut down an aisle with a cart full of detergent and the whole store goes nuts for it:

As strange as these lines are, they certainly can’t go wrong with a pretty girl snuggling a towel right? Besides, having Miranda Kerr is quite the step up from their former, more awkward, spokeswoman:
