Ok, so the first part of this series covered 2 myths that we ladies supposedly like to fill our pretty little heads with about Korean men: 1) Korean men like interracial dating, and 2) Older Korean men are more reliable. This is the second part of three.
Myth #3 Korean men are sweet loving and gentleman
Uhm, ok…so why wouldn’t/couldn’t they be? Now, am I so naive to think that all Korean men are sweet, loving gentlemen, as oftentimes displayed in dramas and movies? Of course not! And that goes for all men in dramas and movies, no matter if they are Korean, American, French, Arab, etc. Once again, its just silly to generalize that Korean men are either extreme. There are sleazebag men in Korea who beat their wives and mistreat women, as well as all other parts of the world. Why pick out Korean men?? I really need to know the writer’s motives behind writing this article. Maybe his wife or girlfriend got stolen from him by a Korean guy and he’s playa hatin’. If that is the case, he should hate the playa and not the game. Back to the point, and concerning Korean men being prejudiced, I understand how a person of a different or darker color may be perceived in a homogeneous society such as South Korea. No doubt, that person is going to be stared and gawked at. This is a surface reaction. But things are changing there and I truly believe that when two people, regardless of race, color or nationality get to know each other, all the surface bs goes out the window. We all bleed red, afterall. Although some like to think their blood is a perfect shade of blue that makes them better than everyone else. Hmph.
Myth #4 Korean men are gentle, kind yet sensitive with woman
Ok, so this one is actually very similar to myth #3. Once again, to lump all Korean men into this category is just wrong. I totally agree that women should steer clear of male chauvinists….and as stated before…no matter what color he is. I’m starting to sound like a broken record. I think you all get the point. I hate seeing articles like this. Perhaps it cuts so close to me because I am a black woman and unfortunately used to be stereotyped negatively.
I also believe this is why Asian men and black women fit together so well. We understand each others’ struggles.
