Still Waters Posted May 19 #1 Share Posted May 19 (IP: Staff) · After wearing masks in public for three long years, many Japanese are signing up for smiling classes to learn how to smile again without looking awkward. Smiling used to be a natural response, but apparently, three years of hiding behind a mask have left many Japanese unable to smile naturally. Some of them are now paying so-called smiling educators to teach them how to display their pearly whites again without looking awkward. They participate in specialized classes where they are taught how to stretch and flex various parts of their faces and even their neck muscles to smile properly and actually convey happiness without looking weird. https://www.odditycentral.com/news/many-japanese-turn-to-smile-instructors-to-learn-how-to-smile-again-after-covid.html Remembering how to smile?
