A BIG thank you to southkoreadating.— we have put our trust into online dating and it worked out really well!
The allegations draw attention to Korea’s conservative attitudes towards homosexuality, particularly in the military, which is one of the country’s most powerful institutions.
To an American, the motto may go something like: "Look Poor, Act Rich" -we like to look good, without appearing as if we are trying to hard.
But a Korean motto is quite the opposite; for example, a Korean woman will dress to a T with designer clothes, high-quality makeup and five-inch heels...if you compliment her on any of these stylish choices, her response will probably be something like, "Oh this? " It's considered rude to gloat on a compliment..truth be told, both men and women consider appearance to be high on their list of criteria when choosing a partner, because it's not just the person you spend weekends with, it's the person you're going to be I'm not going to pretend like Korean guys are going around holding doors for women and opening car doors, but couples are often seen together, the man holding the woman's purse and/or books, while also holding her hand. Maybe....but, probably it's more a case of plain old-fashioned chivalry. Apparently you can have your cake and eat it too...
Part of this is attributed to the fact that the population is in such close proximity, there is always the constant awareness you are being watched, and consequently: critiqued.
To that end, your appearance says a lot about who you are in society.
