There’s a real-life Squall Leonhart from Final Fantasy VIII in Malaysia. Or if you’re a lady who used to be obsessed with Barbie Dolls, there’s a real-life Ken (Barbie’s boyfriend) in Malaysia.
Meet 21-year-old Amirul Rizwan Musa, who owns a business in KL.
When he was 16, he had his chicken pox that deteriorated his skin condition. That lowered his self-esteem a lot—so much so that he felt “ashamed” of his looks.
And since he had always been obsessed with anime characters, he decided to go for plastic surgery to boost his confidence.
He had his first surgery at 17, and had one more last year to create the look he desired. It cost a totality of about RM180,000 (about SGD$57.8K)
Maybe you’re, just like me, curious on the correlation between anime and Squall (game) / Ken (toy).
Here’s an image of Squall Leonhart for your reference.
And here’s Ken.
On 2 July 2017, his pictures went viral but for the wrong reason: People were condemning him, and even felt that his actions could influence other youths.
So much so that he took it to the media and said that some of his customers have lost trust in him simply because he had plastic surgery.
Maybe you’re, just like me, curious on the correlation between trust and plastic surgery.
Here’s one takeaway: why is it that no one gives a damn when you lift your nose in South Korea, but when you do it in places like Singapore or Malaysia, it became such a hoo-ha?
Here’s the other takeaway: take good care of yourself when you’re having your chicken pox.
