On Douyin, almost everyone has seen a "transformation" video.
It was a Douyin expert named "Wang Leilei". With the rhythm of the magical music, a man with swollen eyes, a mediocre appearance and even "unsightly", who looked like he hadn't washed his hair for a week, changed instantly. He has become a handsome man who resembles Korean star Lee Jun-ki.

The video garnered more than 1.37 million likes, 46,000 comments, and 90,000 retweets, while triggering a series of parody and spin-off videos on Douyin.
In fact, not only on Douyin, but now these "little brothers" images with bright eyes, white teeth and exquisite makeup have long been seen on phone number list any social platform.
Behind this is the change in the concept and aesthetics of the new generation of consumers, and it is also the apparent feature of the increasing correlation between men and beauty under the rise of the "other economy".
