With the global popularity of K-pop and K-dramas, many are picking up hair and makeup tips for a Korean look to look like their favourite Korean celebrities.
But what exactly constitutes a Korean look, and how can we replicate the Korean celebrities’ look?
Korean celebrities have impacted the beauty standards in Korea greatly. In general, the coveted Korean look includes a V-shaped face, clear and bright skin, innocent-looking eyes with straight eyebrows and aegyo-sal, double eyelids, a defined nose bridge, and a slim figure.
Korean skincare and makeup have been raved by beauty aficionados all over the world. Beauty influencers have written beauty articles on K-beauty tips and tricks on their blogs and made YouTube tutorials on Korean hair and makeup. That will definitely help us to achieve that Korean look, but skincare and makeup aside, aesthetics treatments like skin rejuvenation and facial contouring treatments can also help you achieve that Korean look you desire.
We suss out the treatments you can consider to achieve that Korean look and look like your favourite K-pop star.
1. V-shaped face
V-shaped face is no doubt the most popular face shape in Asia. Think small, oval faces with a well-defined jawline and V chin. Botox treatments can slim your jaws to reduce the squarish-ness on our faces that Asians are associated with. Your doctor may also pair the Botox treatment with some chin fillers to accentuate your chin to achieve the V-shaped face look.
Ultherapy is a skin lifting and skin firming treatment that uses micro-focused ultrasound energy to stimulate collagen production in your skin. The new collagen will naturally lift and tighten your skin for a lifted facial silhouette.
2. High nose bridge

Generally, Asians, especially Southeast Asians, have a wider nose and a lower nose bridge. To get that Korean look, you can try nose fillers or nose threadlift to raise your nose bridge, or to achieve a more defined nose tip. Your doctor may also suggest a combination of both treatments for optimal results.
3. Rejuran Skin Healer
Korean celebrities are known for their clear and bright skin. A good skincare regime, dewy cushion foundations and highlighters can do the trick. You can also try Rejuran Skin Healer Treatment to reverse the ageing process — tighten saggy skin, reduce wrinkles and fine lines, minimise pore size, reduce inflammation, improve skin tone and overall skin health.

K-pop stars look perfect, and it’s not just their faces, but their bodies as well. However, it isn’t an easy feat maintaining that slender body. For example, IU confessed that when she needs to lose weight quickly, her diet consists of one apple for lunch and a protein shake for dinner; Red Velvet’s Wendy’s diet consists of half a cup of rice for breakfast and half an apple for lunch.
It is important to eat healthy and workout regularly to maintain a slim figure, but K-pop diets like those mentioned above aren’t recommended for good health. If you have stubborn fat bulges that refuse to go away, CoolSculpting can always come to your rescue.
CoolSculpting is a fat reduction, body contouring treatment that is US FDA-approved. It is a non-invasive treatment that utilises cryolipolysis technology that targets only fat cells. The frozen and crystallised fat cells are eliminated and the fat cells are gone for the long term.
