IF the rest of us decent-minded people love to keep our privates clean and impeccably groomed, the full bush is making somewhat of a comeback in South Korea.
The revival of the untrimmed pubic could be shocking to some: the ‘bald’ look was deemed most desirable by Cosmopolitan-style articles across the globe.
Even Cameron Diaz has been raving on about keeping pubic hair natural for a while and even had a chapter called ‘Praise of Pubes’ in her health manual released earlier this year.
However, according to Refinery 29, â€˜bush graftingâ€™ is now a thing in Korea.
According to the report, flourishing pubic hair is seen as a sign of fertility and sexual health in Korea.

The condition is estimated to affect around 10 per cent of Korean women, combined with changing room peer-pressure, women are increasingly turning to pubic hair transplants.
During the op, hair is taken from the head and planted into the lady garden. The procedure costs from around Â£1250 (RM6625) Â and takes two to four hours.MYNEWSHUB
