Maybe not as hot a topic as my last post here, but still relevant.
"Korean men don’t like black women. You are not skinny enough for their taste. Prepare for a lonely year...." Blah, blah, yada yada yada and so on…
I have heard this repeatedly.
I have lived in South Korea for about 4 months now and from what I have experienced firsthand and from a story of a friend of my mother’s told me.
Korean men don’t like black women = BULLSHI*T
Also, the people who say that are full of it.
First off, about me:
1. I am a black female.
2. I am a bigger black woman (not that big just I could lose the extra but I have curves (not skinny at all) that won’t be going away (hips and chest).
3. I don’t wear makeup (too lazy and I don’t know how) so when a person sees me you see what I actually look like. I don’t cake it on like I see some other females (all races) do.
Experiences (my own)
1. I was on the subway yesterday. I missed the previous train but my friend I was with made it, so I told him to meet me at the next stop. I caught the next train not even a minute later which was pretty much empty. This nice looking Korean guy was walking through the train. I just happened to look up and smile and he smiled back (big grin that Oh Hell Yeah Who are you? one). And he sat down next to me. Not too close, just one cushion away from me and he was turning toward me, but the vibe got disrupted when my friend came on the train and sat down. My friend is a Canadian guy, Ben, here and most people think we are a couple. It confuses us because the way we talk to each other it is so obvious we are not. He is my adventure buddy of exploring Korea and finding good food. I could tell the Korean guy thought that because he could barely look at me afterward. I saw him sneak peeks though and he helped us on where we were going. My friend and I have a deal on when a hotness of the opposite sex shows interest, and then the other should go away. Unless in my case it is some weird guy giving me that freaky stalker stare (Koreans don’t so this, the ones I encountered anyway), my friend stays put. Should have taken a picture, he was a cutie.
2. The older guy on the train who said if he was 21 years younger he would try to love me.
3. Day before, when a Korean shop owner was helping me and another black woman out at his store. He must have checked me out thoroughly because he picked pants that fit me well, but I can’t wear them to work and I have a butt. I was telling him this and as I was he said I had a nice body.
4. Same store owner, while I was changing, asked my new friend if she dates Korean men, she said she only been here for maybe a month or two. He said she should come back to his shop and he would hook her up. He actually used those words.
5. I as on the subway and this other Korean guy passed me buy and obviously checked me out and smiled at me as he walked pass.
6. Subway again, Korean dude checking out my curves while on the train very obvious about it. Did not look apologetic whatsoever when I caught him staring and following his eye movements. He looked at me, acknowledged me and kept right on. With his mouth hanging open btw.
7. Been complemented on my looks randomly, more times than I can remember ever getting in the states by MEN and WOMEN.
8. This is a story from my Mom’s friend. It is on my Facebook page.
What say the rest of you? Do you agree with the title?
