You feel like a princess when dating a Korean, but it changes when your relationship becomes serious.I always offer to pay the bill at the restaurant, but he usually doesn’t let me.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.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.
Talk a lot because expressing yourself is really important. Mika met her boyfriend in a bar in Hongdae while he was celebrating his birthday with friends.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 😂).My husband isn’t very expressive and tends to internalize his stress.He doesn’t share what he thinks because he believes it isn’t manly.
