The advertisements for plastic surgeries are expected to disappear from Seoul’s subway stations by 2022, Seoul Metro said.  The plans were made following many complaints from the public, according to the Seoul Metro. More than 1,180 complaints have been filed regarding subway advertisements on Line No. 1 to 4, and 91 percent of them were related to plastic surgery or women. Such advertisements have been accused of encouraging lookism and creating an unhealthy and distorted view of women’s body images, the operator said.
