Side-By-Side Comparison Of Beauty In South And North Korea Throughout The Years

Va va voom.

You might have seen what 100 years of Iranian or USA beauty look like already, but this time Cut, a video production company behind the popular 100 Years of Beauty series, is back with something rather special. This stunning time lapse reveals 100 years of Korean va va voom. 

The interesting part here, however, is that the time lapse splits into two frames during the 1940s, reflecting the division of Korea after World War II. 

South and North Korea took rather different paths towards what looks were considered to be either fashionable or appropriate, and thanks to this video we get to compare them side by side. Ha! Very cool.


Before Korea split.

After the split.
