Korean Men: Why Are They So Attractive To Western Women?
Recently I have discovered that there is an insane obsession of western women, especially black women with Korean men. I am included in the mix. I have always had a thing for good-looking Asian men whether they are Chinese or Japanese but I discovered that I too am very obsessed with the idea of, not necessarily marrying one but actually experiencing one.
That may sound confusing and even crazy but many people do the same to black women. Many white men will never openly date a black girl let alone marry her but they have this insane urge to know what it’s like to experience her. It’s the same thing.
Why Korean men
As opposed to Malaysian, Japanese, Vietnamese and so on. Well as far as my little research can tell, there are a few differences with these men.
- Their supposed unavailability: When something is rare, it makes it more valuable. The fact that not many Korean men date outside their own race makes them precious commodity. The same used to happen with white males and black women or white women and black males. It used to be that there was a fetish, almost, about interracial dating and marriage. Black and white interracial relationships is something of a norm these days so the novelty of it has somewhat worn off. I suppose when Korean men start to (if they will) date and marry black women) that eventually we will not be possessed by this insane obsession with them.
- Their attention to their own appearance: Unlike other Asian men, the Korean male pays a lot more attention to his physical appearance. There are two aspects which he cherishes (1) his physique and (2) his outward appearance, which includes grooming, clothing and cleanliness.
- Their flirtatious ways: It is a well-known fact that, though not very promiscuous, they are very flirtatious. This could very well mislead many women to fall prey to these men.
Korean men fun facts
Korean men are taller than other Asian men with many of them well over 5ft 9in. Their height can only be compared to the Japanese but I think Korean males carry more height. Women love tall men.
The most six packs can be found in Korea. Nine out of every ten males ages 16 – 35 have six packs. Many men over the age of 40 are still boasting their muscular physique as well. Koreans, both male and female pride themselves about weight and health. They are mostly of slim built and the men have a very low fat to muscle ratio.
They grow facial hair much easier that their Asian counterparts. I don't know why but I think it has something to do with testosterone. Maybe they are more sexual than other Asian men? Who knows.
Do Korean men date outside their race?
Though it is rare, but the answer is yes. There are even those who dare to date black women. Korean men are not racist. I would rather call them traditional or untamed. They are now learning more about the outside world.
Many of them have never been outside Asia. People of their races fascinate them but they have not closed the social gap enough to consider it normal to date us. Similar Blacks and white in the day without the racism part.
It’s not only black or whites which Korean men hardly date, it's everyone outside of their race. They hardly date the Chinese, Japanese or other Asian people. So the crazy idea (which I came across some time ago) that Korean men are racist is totally unfounded. Even people from the North and South hardly ever date let alone marry.
What is this attraction?
This obsession has become borderline fetish as many women devise ways and means of meeting the perfect Korean guy.
Many know not the difference between this fetish and attraction. It’s not normal to be fixated on one thing like that let alone a specific male specie. It is not easy tempering this crave but it can be done when you realize it’s not real love or even attraction but plain old lust.
If you eat, sleep and dream Korean men, you have a fetish and you need help. I can understand that some of them are gorgeous, I even wrote a hub about that but that doesn't mean that all of them are. Plus the ones we see on screen most likely have done plastic surgery. That's the reality.
Is our obsession based on what we see on television or do we really know these men? The power of the mind and media is a very strong force. It's similar to marketing to a specific target group. You know their weakness and you exploit it. That's what marketing really is.
If you have been feeling this kind of insane obsession towards Korean men, you need to temper it and put it into perspective. Get to know more about what they like and don't like, their culture and background before deciding that you must date a Korean guy.
