The kind of face women like differs with age, a poll suggests. Cosmetics maker Amorepacific surveyed 1,800 women between the ages of 19 to 55 and found that women in their 20s liked the look of Jeon Ji-hyun and Han Ga-in best. Han and Kim Tae-hee were selected by those in their 30s, and Kim Hee-ae and Goh Hyun-jeong by those in their 40s. Women in their 50s liked Kim Hee-ae and Lee Young-ae's faces most.

"There is a tendency for women in their 20s and 30s to prefer large and clear-cut features, while women in their 40s and 50s like a comfortable impression and classical face shape the most,” an official with the company said. Respondents put a lot of emphasis on the overall balance and harmony of the face (42 percent). Other priorities were clear-cut features (30 percent), color and smoothness of skin (17 percent), facial shape (8 percent) and size (3 percent).
Some 37 percent of respondents said they were satisfied with their face and only 9 percent were definitely not satisfied. But 24 percent and 32 percent of respondents were dissatisfied with their figure or their height and weight, suggesting that Korean women are less happy about their bodies than their faces. Sixty-four percent of respondents chose the face as the most important factor in judging appearance, way ahead of height and weight (16 percent) and figure (15 percent).(firstname.lastname@example.org )
