What are the benefits of dating a Korean man? Sure, he was such a gentleman and makes sure I am well taken cared for, etc.

They work too hard which means not having ample time to hang out. Compared to other countries, this type of behavior is quite common. What are some of the cultural differences between your country and Korea? In my country, it doesnt matter how old you are or your position. You will get respected anyway. What are some common misconceptions about Korean men? Not all Korean men are sweet or romantic. A lot of ladies around the globe swoon from the handsome idols on Korean entertainment.
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. Again, this country has only recently opened its doors to foreigners and a lot of misinformation about foreigners is still going around.
It takes time to get used to the Korean way of life and thinking. What advice would you give to someone wanting to date a Korean man? 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. It is tough to be in an interracial relationship especially here in Korea, so it is vital to be with someone who respects and accepts who you are.
Also, having standards based on shallow perceptions and foundations must be avoided.

Dating a Korean guy has enhanced my expat experience: helping me out with problems, translating, going on trips together in his car, learning some of the language, the compliments, and no game playing. Of course there are drawbacks like language barriers, miscommunications, different relationship expectations, and culture clashes.
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. Talking about things like marriage are common place from the offset he asked my views on marriage on our second date. Men here seem a lot more respectful, tell you how beautiful you are, and are very openly caring and gentlemanly. For example my boyfriend will carry my bags, open doors, and help me with anything.

They are just like all other men from any other nationality. I guess the question should be, what are the benefits and downsides to dating a guy in general. Quite frankly, none. I married someone that fit me, thus we pretty much are on the same page about everything. I went to university in Korea and I know countless western university students who got their hearts broken by Korean men.
Not because of those guys, but because of their expectations of them. Korean men are not like the K-dramas.
This just shows the woman has a close-minded view. Keep it real. I know plenty of Korean men who date dark skinned girls with brown eyes and love them for who they are.
Every single Korean guy has his own personality and taste. Ara- thank you!! Good luck with your guy! Can you give me your link of your blog? I wanted to know in high schooler version! Since I graduated from high school too. On keeping in touch, well, I guess you could say that I am the needy one. I always text him to check on him and I thought it would be a little bit irritating on his part.
But no, he likes it whenever we exchange messages to one another. Oh yes, we are living together and we still text each other on Kakaotalk, or on Skype while workingor through text messages. There were some rough times though.
Of course, when he gets home I get something like a token for not bugging him or for understanding him. I once bugged him about that and he told me that we could be both good-looking whether we dress up or not.
Whenever I go to work, he makes sure I get to work safely by getting me a service car or taxi and charging to his card. He does everything that he can do for me, and I really appreciate it. I once greeted him for our day celebration. And I love him for that. It really helps breaking the somewhat unfair assumptions that all Korean guys are needy and controlling.

Nice article. People need to differentiate between real and reel lives. They are humans like everyone else living elsewhere. Ultimately south korean men and women are just like many other east asians and asiansThey want fun and adventure but they dont have the courage to try new things and the society setup also discourages it They seek safe options.
They have that male ego hidden always. Thanks for your comment!
1. One word: Oma.
I agree, I feel that media gives people inaccurate picture of what to expect. I wang him to be kind and handsome and can sing and dance! Hmm my experience has been different. I felt bad for assuming he was just another Korean guy who wanted to look cool by paying for everything.
He is a working man, after all, and he is frugal with his money. All guys are different and although the dating culture in Korea sets standards for guys to be chivalrous and show off their money or whatever, of course not all guys will fit this type.
I do love wearing couple-wear, though and I see a ton of couples in Korea wearing couple tees and holding hands. Wow I have a Korean boyfriend and he exactly acts like yours lol i always tell him to dress up : he pays everything though but I get him some nice gifts so we are kind a even ; he always texting me on kakao talk and he never calls me on the phone is that normal? Some times there is so annoying though!
I am a fully spanish woman raised in United States. California to be exact. And I have a Korean boyfriend with whom ive been dating for a few months now. And I can agree that korean men do move along fast in relationships. I have always preferred to date asian men, and have had about 3 asian korean boyfriends.
My first was terrible because he moved way too fast and was saying I love you within a couple weeks. I feel sad because I know its not common for people to accept interracial relationships let alone spanish and asians dating. I try to find advice on this but it seems like I am the only spanish woman attracted to koreans.
Anyway I just hope that if things get serious that his family will accept me and my 4 year old daughter. Because he does. By Spanish do you mean like Hispanic. It just sounds like it will be a disaster T-T However something that really intrigued me is that they move fast? Hi your not the only one. Thanks for sharing your story it was helpful. Anyhow I wish you the best of luck.
And just remember All things are possible! Never lose your faith!!

I used to live in Makati, and I know the Korean Community there is huge! I think it has to do with our Cultures and how guys were brought up.

Six Women Share Their Experiences on Dating Korean Men
Dating a Korean guy seems a little different from dating a Japanese guy. I have been dating mine for some time and we have been living together for four years and a half. We are about to get married. I have to say Japanese guys, the one who studied abroad are different. What I personally appreciate no kissing in public and no holding hands like to announce to the world being a couple. I am past that phase, we declare our commitment with private life insurances, taking care of health, buying houses, blah blah.
Hi, I am Sun and from S Korea. I sent a e-mail : I think I can help you about your questions. Super nice guy, understands the western culture more than most, great English.
I agreed. Whilst the dress I can deal with, the full outfit freaks me out! Is this kind of thing normal? I have a Korean bf in Singapore. Is it Korean guy afraid to meet my parent?
But after 6 months he is okay to meet my parent so what is shown to my bf interest? I honestly relate to this. He tells me its a sign of his love tho. Overall, koreans are the sweetest boyfriends.
Reality about korean guys: never date THEM! Pure acting! Oh pulleeaaze.
Hi everyoneam from Nigeria, just want to ask if Its possible for a Korean to date someone from Africa. Am really obsessed with Korean guys. I think dating a Korean guy is a good idea for women. We Koreans quite falsely think white guys or even Chinese guys are more affectionate and more chivalrous and Korean women want us to be more like them.
So we tend to overcompensate. I am a Korean guy and have dated both Korean and foreign girls, I personally prefer foreign girls. I think they are more independent and make a better life partner. In general terms everything you wrote is truly correctly and real. What it is not mentioned in the article tho, is the fact that Korean guys become totally other persons after they stay in long-terms relationships or even when they get married.
I dated a Korean guy and I ended to marry with him exactly because of all the facts that you mentioned in the article. Always careful, polite, lovely, cute, did everything for me even my bag he was carrying all along. But after we married I had the impression that I married another guytotally! All the nice hair styles and clothes were changed into wearing a cap, a pair of jeans and a t-shirt. Every time I blamed him that he changed and not only about appearance but also the behavior.
Now it is not a problem for him if he sees me carrying groceries on the stairs because in his opinion women and men have same rights and duties. Thank you for the reply MissT : We are struggling to make it better because above all the cultural issues and argues, we still love each other, but I admit that I still find difficult to be married with a person from another country.
On another website I just read that the youth in korea does not really care about the personality nowadays when they are in a relationship is that true? He was quick to ask me to be his gf and later wife. We are not married yet. He just calls me his wife. I met him in person and all the questions were answered.
His lifestyle of being a business man and the working hours were cleared when I met him in person. Through my experience I have to say he is a gentleman. Very protective and sincere. Very logical and does not shy away from an argument.
Will sit me down and say we need to talk about it. So he is a patient man and I am a true princess. Loves to kiss and does hold my hand in public. Many displays of affection. He is not into couple clothing since he always wears a suit. His parents are in the province and introduced me by face chat. His mom loves my big round eyes and lashes. So I guess it is serious when you meet his parents. As for the girls here looking for a Korean boy friend because of k drama.
They are romantic and sincere but they are men. So in any nationality they could be good or bad. My experience happened by chance. I went to a Korean dating site.
But my looking for friendship led to a wonderful relationship. Good luck to you all.
Aug 13, †∑ Dating experience: 2 Korean guys: one from Seoul for 2 years and another from Kangwon province living in Seoul for almost 4 years. They both have never lived in another country before. Consulting experience: Over hours of consultation via phone, text, skype, face-to-face about Korean boy-problems. Aug 29, †∑ The biggest benefit I see from a dating a Korean man in Korea is that he can be sort of a shield of sorts: Iím less likely to get ripped off or harassed when heís present, and he can act as a direct (and much nicer) translator for situations my Korean isnít technical enough to handle.

And yes they do lie on the dating sites so chat away to get to know the real person. Thank you for this really clarifying post! South Korea men do not respect women. Because they grow in a society where take it for granted that a man hit a woman.
Korea is a country with serious gender discrimination like the countries of the Middle East. Thanks for foreigners who respect the Korea Culture. I just hope that they avoid the Korean guy. I mean, really??? I am wondering what is the real purpose of your comment ; to help foreigner girls or to make them false impression about Korean guys? But even so, i could not stop being amazed how Korean women treat korean guys.
They hold their bags, they are drivers for them. They have to also look cool, nice hair, nice clothes, be tall, be in good body shapeand now for real??? They are almost like slaves. They have many flaws of course, they are lazy, they are sometimes not too affective, they drink too much, they work too much, some of them they cheatbut beat and treat women like Middle EastI think you are too far.
I also have many Korean girl friends who are saying they are afraid of foreigners, especially from Ukraine or Belarus, who looks so nice and pretty. They are afraid that many korean guys will search for foreigners and start to not like korean women Korean society gives to korean women a lot of rights these days and protect them a lot.
Just think about thishow many foreigners women you see on tv and how many foreigner guys you see on tv? Hi Khethiwe again from South Africa. She was treated disrespectful. She got hit from a man. Should I stop?
