Men in Korea tend to be more in touch with what we call their “feminine side”.
Language exchanges are great places to meet women who are new to Korea.Guys chasing the white horse in Korea tend to lurk here. My old school asked me to help a young CEO of a Private Equity firm.There was never a time I felt like I was singled out as a caucasian North-American.We were friends who enjoyed playing music together.Within a few meetings I was taken more seriously and some of my suggestions for their business were put into place.
I stopped wearing makeup or particularly fashionable attire.There are many Koreans who don’t make fetishes of particular races.I have several North American friends who are dating or who are married to wonderful Korean men. On Friday nights we played guitar, a friend from a more central location brought a cajon, and we sang outside the local convenience store while eating instant ramyeon and drinking soju and/or beer.I definitely don’t think I was brought in as a white horse in Korea, but it was pretty close.I can’t speak from firsthand experience as I haven’t dated a Korean man while living here.This goes both ways, but I often hear about foreign women who want to improve their Korean skills and are instead propositioned.
