100 Years Of Beauty Shows The Style Differences Of North And South Korea Female Ideals As They’ve Evolved Overtime

The awesome people over at Cut Video have made another 100 Years Of Beauty video, and this one compares female ideals in North and South Korea as they have evolved over time.

The different looks, styled by Tiffany Lee, paint a portrait of two very different societies: South Korea’s beauty practices, though ever evolving, often reflect a more Western ideal, while beauty in North Korea proves to be less expressive and more akin to a uniform than a costume.

This clip is without a doubt the most interesting of the 100 Years of Beauty video series, in that it reveals just how influential a nation’s identity and culture is in regards to aesthetic ideals.
