According to The Wall Street Journal, the surgery is more popular among women in their twenties and thirties who work in customer-facing jobs.

The procedure is being marketed by Aone Plastic & Aesthetic Surgery center which has released a promotional video in which it talks about the benefits of such a surgery and says that even men can benefit from the procedure. Says Dr Kwon Taek-keun, a plastic surgeon at the Aone center, "Even when you are looking like your normal self, people keep asking you: 'Why are you frowning?' That's a lot of stress."
