I don't know if it's a return favor, but according to the recent Asahi Weekly, a tabloid paper in English, South Koreans nowadays show their love and respect to their parents by paying for their rejuvenation such as botox injection, surgeries for wrinkle and liver spot removing. Cosmetic surgery clinics in Seoul must have been very busy on May 8, Parents' Day.
As a middle-aged woman, of course I'm worried about wrinkles and liver spots on my face, and it might be good if cosmetic surgery makes me younger not only in appearance but also in mind. I'm generally favorable to cosmetic sergery up to a certain point ( not like Michael Jacson. He went too far!), however I'm still somewhat hesitative to have it.
Let me introduce you one of my favorite quotes shown in "Silver Fox Whispers" which I visit from time to time. It aptly tells my thought.
"If wrinkles must be written upon our brows,
let them not be written upon the heart.
The spirit should not grow old."
