You get freaking spoiled (sometimes annoyed) by how much they will contact you, but this means anxiety triples when they become MIA.
Do dress up on your dates because these Korean boys will dress up/suit up every time they take you out.
Some extremely self-aware guys would put on bb-cream, color contact lens (this one is more rare), and fake heels inside the shoes.
But don’t be too impressed because it’s probably 50% for other people to see, 30% for themselves, and 20% for you.
Regardless, it’s good to see guys putting as much effort into looking nice and “dolling” up, but they would expect you to do the same. For instance, while it’s extremely subtle, they may exert more authority or expect you to show more “child-like” behaviors. In Korea, age determines how you refer to one another (unlike in Canada where everyone calls each other names).
It seems like Korean guys are in demand because many of my single girlfriends have been telling me how much they’d like to learn Korean just to date Korean boys. Quite understandable considering how men are portrayed in all these Korean MVs, dramas, and movies.
But really, that’s like saying I want to date a Lawyer after watching Suite. They sometimes go MIA, put friends over you, breaks your heart, forget your birthday etc.
But I must say that there is some merit to Korean boys’ courting style that is hard to match.So here, I list out some of the common occurrences of dating a Korean guy based on my personal experience and of the experiences of my lovely Korean girlfriends.Note that there are many Korean guys out there, and there are many exceptions.This is just my personal experience, please read it with a light heart.In comparison to guys I’ve dated from other culture, Korean guys are great at keeping in touch, constantly.This made it hard for me to adapt to ABC guys that were texting 2,3 messages per day or every two three days because Korean guys will text you every day. It’s not that they’re more/less into you; I think it’s a norm.
