Marry or be with a man not because he is Korean but because of who he is.
Cultural differences can always be an issue between interracial couples, but I believe personality clashes are more critical than cultural ones.
From a dating point of view the main difference is how quickly things move.
There is no second guessing if a guy likes you or not because he will make it clear he does straight away.
He doesn’t share what he thinks because he believes it isn’t manly.
Some of the major differences I noticed is there can’t be platonic relationships between the sexes, age is power in Korea, his family (at the beginning) weren’t that accepting of me because I’m not Korean, physical affection here is a no-no, the Aegyo concept, and Korea views appearance or even status in society more seriously than in my country. In my country, it doesnt matter how old you are or your position. They believe in K-drama actors or idols and their characters to the point of thinking all or most Korean men look like one or act like one.
Another misconception is living in Korea is heavenly or a paradise. Many struggles can be felt here especially among foreigners.
For example my boyfriend will carry my bags, open doors, and help me with anything.
It’s really nice, but for someone who is very independent like me, it can sometimes be annoying.
