Yeah, I know tons of young Chinese women are gaga over Korean guys. Lots of Vietnamese, Philippine, Thai, etc. women as well. Korean guys have it pretty good.Yohan wrote: ↑October 17th, 2020, 11:42 amYour observation is correct. Other Asian countries are also nationalistic minded, not only Japan.
However South Korea is now a Christianity-orientated nation, with Buddhism already a minority. Korean Churches are everywhere, worldwide and in South Korea you have various mega churches which can sit more than 20.000 people. In Japan however Christianity except in some places like Nagasaki and Yamaguchi was not very successful, most Japanese stay with Shinto/Buddhism as religion.
Japanese women, compared to Korean women are more polite and calm and try to avoid quarrels. However Korean women are more talkative and good in entertainment.
There are more Japanese women than Korean women. I share your opinion, there is no need for both of them to look around for foreign men - South Korea and Japan are not like the Philippines....
Language barrier is the same in South Korea and Japan - Most Koreans and Japanese are not good with foreign languages.
Japanese and Korean are often similar to each other but still it needs a while - some years - to be able to communicate fluently in one of these 2 languages if your native language is English ... or in my case German.
My Japanese is quite good, but my Korean is merely basic...
International/interracial marriage and living in South Korea or Japan is not so easy for many Western men.
I see this with my fellow countrymen in Japan, a few stay, but many leave....
And it makes sense. South Korea is seen as a "cool" country with Kpop dominating the music scene, the prevalence of Korean TV/movies, food etc. Not to mention South Korea is fairly stable, wealthy, clean, safe, and there is a high degree of liberty.
And of all the Asian countries, Korean guys are easily the "best" - every guy I've known has been easygoing, hardworking, cultured, and has a good sense of humor. Also things like wife-beating and having mistresses are generally not tolerated in South Korea. It really doesn't make sense for a South Korean woman to look elsewhere.
