Session II: Article Discussion

 Article Link

 

 4. Do you think appearance is important? How does your appearance affect your life? According to the article, research has shown that a strong male chin both attracts mates and predicts future professional success. Do you agree, why or why not? What facial features do you think are attractive? Please name or show some celebrities with these features.


5. Recently, cosmetic surgery has become quite popular in Korea. Some Korean parents may even prepare a "beauty deposit" for their children for future cosmetic surgeries. Did you or your friends ever had a cosmetic surgery? What kind is it? If you have children, will you allow them to have these operations?

 

 6. A traditional Chinese proverb says: "相由心生; 境隨心轉". Do you believe a positive attitude can influence one's attractiveness as well as their appearance, especially the facial features? Through physiongnomy or palm reading, sometimes we may guess a person's characteristics and a little bit about their future. Have you ever tried these before? Have you heard of any interesting ways to tell one's fortune or personality? Please share with us.
