Seoul is very modern and society is quickly changing, but it’s still very much grounded in its conservative culture and ways. Even though they shit trendy in style and the party lifestyle is pretty cool, on general young people are not as open to casual hook ups as they are in the west. This has caused much disdain to many young western men who have tried their arduous luck with the ladies.
I don’t think there is anything wrong with this approach most Koreans have personally, you gotta do what you gotta do and live how you feel is right for you.
I don’t know about the ladies, but as for the guys I have witnessed severe conservatism and severe shyness for most of the time that they practically look like they about to shit in their pants if the wind blew the wrong way in the moment. Needless to say, it has provided for some good humour and terrible let downs for some.
I think being true to one’s self is just the only way to go no matter what your values and beliefs are and is in itself charming and endearing.
As for those morons who feel they need to fulfill this absurd obligation to hook up with a Korean (or any other person based on ethnicity or nationality) for “bucket list” purposes to feed their retarded egos only become pathetic and empty in the end. As I said, stay true to yourself.
Otherwise, seeing the little bunnies wee themselves with fright is fun….of course it will all be in good intentions as we swerve those headlights away in time before they get fucked over.
