Koreans dating white girls
Hat tip to the Korea Beat, who translated the story here.
Earlier today, the Korea Beat posted this little tidbit about a panel of foreign women bashing foreign guys who go for Korean girls: On the 6th the beautiful women of KBS2’s “Chat With Beauties” spoke critically on the topic of “Indecent Foreigners Living in Korea.” After choosing as the worst foreigners in Korea those foreigners who always speak English or their native language, never learning Korean, and easily meet Korean women they said, “most western men approach Korean women by saying they want to learn Korean.” They also said there are many foreigners who live in Korea for many years but speak poor Korean.
There are probably more than these eight reasons, but having dated some Korean women during my stay here (and asking Korean women the same question), I’d like to think I have an idea. We don’t care about S-lines, V-lines, X-lines, or any of that BS. While we don’t want to buy every round (we do like it when our women buys , like TI from “Whatever You Like” fame, but we’re definitely better than the Weird Al remake or the Obama remake (seriously funny). Westerners are more likely to treat you as an equal. If you’ve been looking for a way out, Western guys do offer a way. Also, if we get a flat tire while you’re driving, we can change the darn tire ourselves without worrying about getting our pretty shirt dirty or calling some errand man. We can talk about interesting things – much more interesting than work, clothes, drinking, and that crazy boss of ours.
That we don’t typically read the silly places where people make a big deal out of those makes it easier to ignore them. It’s not a universal concept among all Westerners yet, but it’s a concept that Westerners have had decades more practice at. Quite a few of us sing, dance, play an instrument, write, cook, act, and many other things.
Blogger, fashion photographer, and social critic Eliza Romero goes even further by calling out Asian women on this popular subtopic of the White Male/Asian Female (WM/AF) dynamic in her recent blog, "Every time an Asian woman complains that only white guys want to date her and that white guys fetishize Asian women, it usually turns out that she herself has only dated white guys." To further complicate the problem, as online dating becomes more the norm than the exception, the image of the Asian man as emasculated, lacking confidence, nerdy, and asexual may be heightened.
I don't care how the man looks as long as his personality is beautiful.If such a hierarchical culture can accept these relationships (and even celebrated seen on TV) it is extremely unlikely any Asian guy will dump a non-Asian girl for something silly as "culture" differences.The women that are interested in Asians are looked down upon by the parents, Black women, and so therefore they will not date them.Just this year, comedian Steve Harvey joked about how no one would want to date Asian men.Unfortunately, this bias may continue for some time.
