Korea is known for many things (K-Pop and Kim Jong-un, to name a couple), yet this beauty evolution focuses on one of the biggest areas of interest. Although plastic surgery reigns high in the country, it's clear that the beauty evolution has been dramatic over the years. Cut.com has created a one minute video depicting how it has changed over 100 years.

What's particularly striking is the comparison between South Korea and North Korea beginning in the 1950s. The beauty evolution in the south is much more transparent than that of the north, mainly because the latter is more cut off from the influence of the rest of the world. Starring Tiffany Lee, the Korean Beauty Evolution video is powerfully eyeopening in more ways than one.
