And at school, it’s not unusual for male teachers to comment on my appearance. I have some really kind and amazing Korean friends and co-workers. This isn’t a rant, and I’m not trying to insult the country or its people.
I’ve lived here for 2 years, and of course I wouldn’t have stuck it out if I hated it. This is an account of my experience living in Korea as a foreign expat.
They aren’t opting for surgery like rhinoplasty to fix a crooked nose that’s been causing them a lot embarrassment over the years.
They want eyelid surgery so that they can disguise their ethnic features.
You know, the usual things you’d like to find out about someone. Did he think I was going to say “no, I’m single” then bunk off work and check into the closest love motel with him?
The sort of small talk that I have with curious locals at the bus stop almost everyday. Seriously, some folk need to take their heads out of their arses.
With such importance placed on looks from such a young age, it’s not uncommon for students as young as 7 to notice if you are wearing less makeup than usual, or to point out that you have dark circles.
I got to the bus stop a few minutes early and was just admiring the scenery- yesterday it had rained, so today the skies were completely blue and clear. Then, this Korean guy appears out of thin air, a centimetre away from face, stares at me and just blurts out “boypurenduh isseoyo? ) He caught me off guard so I just walked away from him, gave him a firm yes and nice snide look. A lot of Korean men (not all, but a lot) have less respect towards foreign girls than they do towards Korean girls.
I wish I had made a bit of a scene and told him to fuck off, but as it always goes, we only know the best thing to do in hindsight. There is a sentiment here that foreign girls make good girlfriends, but they’re not marriage material.
I want to get real and show that life here isn’t all cherry blossoms, unicorns and nice pay cheques. This morning I woke up and went through the same routine I follow everyday.
I was in pretty high spirits by the time I left the house, probably due to the huge cafetiere of coffee that I had demolished just before leaving, and I was ready for the day ahead. The reason that I’m so angry is that I know that if I was a Korean girl, he would never have acted that way.
It’s absolutely no secret that this problem exists in South Korea.
