In addition, Scott writes that the split between the private and public sectors means that the state is not concerned with the former, thus neglecting the household and women working therein (151).

... The obsession with plastic surgery in South East Asia, and in particular Korea, is best understood as an amalgamation of localised discourses which are a result of the economic and technological developments in the country. It is surprising that a higher than normal proportion of men in South Korea have plastic surgery.
