Welcome to the male narcissism capital of the world
Seoul's male-only spas and facilities push skincare and beauty tips
Korean men sure love to spend money on … themselves.
Not only were men's clothing sales higher than women's in Korea last year, but Korean men accounted for 18 percent of the world's male skincare market, officially making Korea the biggest market in the world for male cosmetics, Chosun Ilbo reported Monday.
They aren't shy about it either, as frequenting beauty facilities is increasingly becoming the norm for Korean men.
