That YouTube video is an eye-opener. Apparently, the Korean girls do not see themselves as attractive. Ironically, I am jealous of their looks, especially the girl who says she has "chubby" cheeks. I wish I am that attractive. But then, I think the girls are wearing make-up. If I wear make-up, maybe I may appear attractive too. Hmmm. . .
I just think it's interesting to observe how attractive people don't see themselves as attractive. I have never really found myself very attractive. I'm not sure whether that's because I don't wear make-up at all, or that's because I just don't find myself attractive, or that's because I really am ugly. Anyway, no one, besides my mom, has complimented my appearance, so I would think that I really am ugly. *sigh* I still wish I have Teresa Teng's looks. But nope, I have to be stuck with my dad's nose and mouth.

I've never thought about myself as "the ugliest in the world." At minimum, I'm probably a 4, in general. Though, I typically think of myself as a 7. I sometimes think I'm "not attractive", but I never think I'm "ugly".
Though, it might have something to do with Asian humility. At least, if it were Japan, it would be kind of rude to talk well of yourself and state your superiority in whatever. You're always supposed to downplay your abilities and strengths and good points. Those who are different are targeted and dragged back down to the majority level. Might be the same in Korea. Although, chubby cheek girl did say that the big Western butts look "weird", so maybe it's not.
It is strange, though. The Japanese also like blonde hair and the blue/green/colorful eyes and everything. That's why in anime you see almost every character has colorful hair and eyes. I was so confused about it, when I first started watching anime. "Why do they make shows with white people as main characters?" But a Japanese dude told me it was just that they wished they looked like that: and that they are still Japanese characters. Quite a big compliment.
Apparently, white skin is also a beauty sign in a lot of Asian cultures: China and Japan, at least, I know. Porcelain skin has been seen as the height of attractiveness in China for, like a thousand years or something. That's where Geisha's come from, with the very, very overly white makeup. But, there's also a decent deal of admiration of the West in some Asian countries. I think Korea and Japan, namely. So that might skew their perspectives, and give them a bias towards Western looks.
Like Jackie Chan and his double lid surgery. :(
Dude. You should totally wear makeup. It's a free level up. Okay, not free. But it's a level up.
Those girls are almost all really attractive, though. And I'm not usually into Asian girls.
Ewwwwww. Apple butt.
"She must have saved a nation in her previous life to get D boobs." rofl.
But, in any case, everyone is going to be the hottest to at least one person out there. Or almost everyone. So, even if you think you're ugly, there's probably millions of people out there who think you're hot.0

Yes. I've been getting called ugly most of my life, even by my own family. I've never been asked out by anyone. I always see the saying online: Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder but I feel that it doesn't apply to me. Why else would so many people tell me I am ugly and I look like a man. I live in a different city now than the town I grew up in. I barely know anyone here and they have the same opinion. So if so many people call me ugly it must be true. My little nephew once even asked me if I was a boy. He's still at such an innocent age that I feel this kind of confirms it. Little kids don't understand things like that.1
