[JW Plastic Surgery Center Korea] Wars in Korea??North Korea vs South Korea?? Is safe to go to Korea??? This is story from my friend who is currently living in Korea

Is Korea Safe?



We have all seen on the news reports of growing tension with North Korea.



The news makes it sounds like  a war is about to start and that it’s very dangerous to be in Seoul.
I have been living in Seoul for over eleven years now and I can honestly say I think cable news is just being sensational about it like they are with everything else.
They need to fill hours of television and keep it interesting so people continue to tune in so they can continue to sell advertising.

In my eleven years in Seoul, I have constantly seen on the news that North Korea does something then the U.S.A. says they need to stop. Both sides continue to push each other, but nothing ever happens.
I have family back in the United States who call me worried when they see something on the news. They hear that people in Seoul are very worried and preparing for a war. The reality couldn't be further from the truth, people are just living their life here, shopping, partying, working, hiking, and everything else you can think of. The one thing I don't see anyone doing is stressing out about war. Because they know, like I do, that the media is making a mountain out of a mole hill.

The way I see the situation is this, imagine you are cooking a piece of toast in your toaster. Now you left the toaster on a little to long so your toast is black and there is a little smoke. It’s not a big deal. Now imagine the media has heard about your burned toast. Instead of saying “Today some toast was burned” they say “Huge fire!!!”

To be completely honest, I feel much safer here in Seoul than I do in my hometown of Chicago. Chicago is a great city, but we do have a lot more crime than Seoul. Its not just me, being a foreigner means you meet a lot of ofter foreigners from many different countries, the one thing I hear over and over again is that Seoul is so much safer than there home countries.

If it were so dangerous they wouldn't be hosting the 2018 PyeongChang  Winter Olympic Games here. If the governments of world really thought it was that dangerous they would have moved the games to someplace else. If you are worried about traveling to South Korea because the threat of North Korea my advise is don't believe the scare mongering in the media. I highly recommend visiting South Korea.

Why do People want Augmentation with Motiva Implants, and What is Motiva Implants?

One of the main questions beside the size of breast implants is the type of implants. It is also a very important factor. The wrong type of implants will provide you with suboptimal results.



Most plastic surgeons will provide their patients with all the needed information so that they can choose the type of implant they want.
When it comes to breast implant manufacturer, we recommend our patients to use MOTIVA breast implants. There are a lot of reasons to choose MOTIVA implants.

Reasons to choose MOTIVA implants

1. The surface aspects of implants can make a big difference. MOTIVA combines the advantages of both smooth and textured surfaced implants. Smooth surfaced implants have a high possibility of mobility inside the breast, which may cause malpositining of the implants. On the other hand, textured implants remain fixed and don't move naturally enough inside the breasts, though stability of the implants is assured. MOTIVA textured implants have a highly improved texture which al…
