A 19-year-old student named Ko who took the CSAT for the second time Thursday said, “In front of the testing site, plastic surgery and skin clinic employees were advertising discounts on operations when you brought in your test slip.”

“I have three or four friends already who pestered their parents into making reservations” at a clinic, she added.

It is not only the female seniors who are getting caught up in the plastic surgery wave. A 46-year-old parent named Sohn with a son in his senior year recalled, “My son got a quote from a clinic after hearing that test takers got a 20% to 30% discount.”

“He also said they give another 5% to 10% off when you bring a friend,” a disconcerted Sohn said. “Is this some pyramid thing?”
