KOREAN MODEL INJECTED COOKING OIL INTO HER FACE WHEN DOCTORS DENIED PLASTIC SURGERY!!!

A plastic surgery addict injected cooking oil into her face when doctors refused to give her any more silicone.

Former model Hang Mioku has been left permanently disfigured following the DIY beauty treatment.

After injecting an entire bottle of black market silicone into her face, Hang resorted to using cooking oil that left her face severely swollen and scarred.

Her plights was featured on Korean television and viewers donated thousands of won to pay for corrective surgery. 

During the first of 10 operations, surgeons removed 60g of silicone, oil and other foreign substances from her face and 200g from her neck.

However, Hang is still disfigured and she said she wishes she could have her old face back.

Hang had her first procedure aged 28 and then moved to Japan where she had repeated treatments.

She quickly became obsessed with having smoother and softer skin.

Doctors eventually refused to carry out any more work on her after her face became noticeably enlarged.

However, she managed to get hold of a bottle of silicone and a syringe to self-inject but when that ran out she resorted to use cooking oil.

Her face was so altered that her own parents did not recognize her and local children also used to call her ‘standing fan’ because her face was so large compared to her small body.

Numerous operations paid for by donations have managed to reduce the size of her face and neck but she is still significantly disfigured. 

Recently the former model was working in a recycled clothes shop, called The Beautiful Shop, and receiving handouts from the state.

HASHIMA ISLAND, Japan (Abandoned Island)
Petroleum replaced coal in Japan during the 1960s and the island’s output declined.  Mitsubish closed the mine in 1974 and the 835 people per hectare population abandoned Hashima Island.  Ownership has since been turned over to the city of Nagasaki (15km away) and the island survives as a tourist attraction, although access is limited due to the dangerous condition of the abandoned buildings, some of which have tumbled down.

BEICHUAN, China (Ghost City/Abandoned City)
Ravaged by the Sichuan earthquake of 2008, the tragic city of Beichuan has become one of Asia’s modern day ghost towns.  Like some of the great cities of classical times, much of Beichuan was destroyed when the quake shook this peaceful landscape, its remaining buildings standing – just about – amid a scene of sheer destruction.  To put the tragedy into perspective, in a town with a population of 20,000, over 1,000 students lost their lives at Beichuan high school alone when two buildings collapsed on the campus.  Survivors were relocated after the town was deemed too vulnerable to rebuild.  It is set to become a memorial park.

This hillside in southwestern Turkey offers an impressive sight, dotted with roughly 500 ruined houses that once made up the 2,000 strong Greek Christian settlement of Kayakoy. Abandoned in 1923, the ghost town is so intact that the houses could be waiting for new owners to fix their roofs, splash some paint around and get on with life as normal.  In fact several houses have been reoccupied, and with two surviving Greek Orthodox churches, Kayakoy is a major tourist attraction protected by the Turkish government, although roadside vendors have a habit of scavenging objects from the town to sell as souvenirs.

Gulliver’s Kingdom

Location: Kamikuishiki, Yamanashi Prefecture, Japan
Years in operation: 1997-2001
Creepy factor: 8
Although Japan has its fair share of uncanny abandoned amusement parks, we think that Gulliver’s Kingdom, a failed theme park based on Jonathan Swift’s classic tale, takes the proverbial cake. Although demolished in 2007, the several-year span when the Lilliputian theme park sat disused and neglected was a high point for the many intrepid urban explorers looking to crawl all over Lemuel Gulliver’s lanky, 147.5-foot-long concrete frame. The park’s closing, the result of poor ticket sales, probably had something to do with its rather unfortunate locale: although located at the foot of Mount Fuji, the park was adjacent to Aokigarah, Japan’s infamous “Suicide Forest,” and in the same village where the Aum Shinriyko doomsday cult, the group behind 1995’s Sarin gas attacks in Tokyo, was headquartered.

Apadana Palace (Persepolis, Iran)
Built by Darius the Great around 515 B.C., the palace must have been a wonder to behold. Massive columns—of which thirteen remained standing by the twentieth century—supported the roof. The staircases were embellished with rows of reliefs that displayed successions of delegates, soldiers, guards, and chariots carrying presents and offerings to honor the king. The front walls of the palace were carved with images of the Immortals of 300 fame—the Persian Kings’ noble guard.

OKPO LAND, South Korea
Location: Okpo City, Geoje Island, South Korea
Years in operation: ?-1999
Creepy factor: 9 
While we don’t know much about the history of Okpo Land, a seriously foreboding abandoned fun park perched atop a hill on South Korea’s tiny Geoje Island, we do know this: The park was shut down in 1999 after a number of fatal accidents, the last when a young girl tragically fell to her death from a ride. Immediately after that incident, the owner of the park disappeared and was never heard from again. Although Okpo Land has the dread-inducing looks and disturbing back-story seemingly plucked from a K-Horror film, that hasn’t stopped hordes of fearless urban explorers from making a pilgrimage (this guy even spent the night).
