Dating and marriage customs in korea

He found my new apartment and took care of all of it.

The biggest differences between France and Korea are the safety (you can come home at 4am and not be afraid), leave your phone on the table while you order, the respect for the older generation, and the humor (Korean people don’t get our sex jokes 😂).

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.Maybe in a sense, Korean men (in general) are chivalrous in one way or another when it comes to dating.They work too hard which means not having ample time to hang out.Some of the major differences I noticed is there can’t be platonic relationships between the sexes, age is power in Korea, his family (at the beginning) weren’t that accepting of me because I’m not Korean, physical affection here is a no-no, the Aegyo concept, and Korea views appearance or even status in society more seriously than in my country. In my country, it doesnt matter how old you are or your position. 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.
