Which would you rather hire? (Hint: it’s the same person)
Oh rich ladies – we love hearing about your problems! Xinhua reports that over 20 Jiangsu taitais were stopped at Hongqiao International Airport’s customs a few days ago after arriving from South Korea. The reason: all of them had gone to the peninsula to get plastic surgery and had come back so unrecognizable that customs officers couldn’t use their existing passport pictures to place them.
The ladies, aged 36 to 54, were part of a “Rich Lady South Korean Plastic Surgery Group” (富婆赴韩整容团). They had all left together on July 28th, gotten their surgery, and tried to fly home on August 2. Each one wore a giant hat and sunglasses while trying to pass through the immigration check.
When asked to take off their accoutrements, they revealed faces covered in scars and bandages. The airport ended up having to dispatch expert Customs officials to clarify their identities one by one.
The ladies were unrepentant about holding up the line. Said one, a Madame Huang:
“Isn’t my appearance very scary! I just finished getting a nose job the day before, and I haven’t even taken out the stitches yet. I love to be beautiful, it’s everybody’s right. We’ve known for a while that South Korea’s plastic surgeons are supposed to be great, so my friends and I went to check it out.
If it turns out to be good, we’ll definitely go again.
