Korean husband shelves divorce after surgery turns plain wife into gorgeous swan

A popular South Korean variety show has sparked online debate after it aired an episode about a plastic surgery 'success story'.

In the segment, the featured candidate's husband had apparently expressed disdain over her plain features and skin blemishes, and wanted to file for a divorce.

As a last resort, the woman had apparently signed up to participate in a plastic surgery reality TV show.

Her surgery was reportedly so successful even her own son couldn't recognize her.

Her husband was apparently so taken with her new appearance that he immediately shelved his divorce plans.

He even promised he'd never mention divorce again.

Many netizens expressed disbelief at the overly-rosy picture of plastic surgery the video segment painted, with some criticizing it for popularizing the perception that looks count for everything.

Many were also indignant that the woman had to change her appearance simply because her shallow husband had expressed concern over her looks.

Actually even after the make over the physical appearance does not look that great. But most so so looking people are more beautiful in character. Perhaps a bond was built during the whole process. And a beautiful character with a relative good look was just the right mix for the good doctor.
