One thing that has been the same in my daily routine since high school has been putting on eyeliner. Back at home, I never really felt the pressure to look my best daily. Often times I wore sweat pants or running shorts to meet up with friends-- with eyeliner on, of course. Teaching English in Korea, however, there is a constant pressure to look pampered and your best all the time. Image is everything in Korea and it can really affect how people judge you. Being overweight is one thing, but looking sloppy is a direct way for Koreans, in my opinion, to automatically place you in the "ugly and lazy" list.
