The episode was about a girl wondering about a guy at work who gave her a set of O-megi tteok instead of tangerine chocolates after his visit to Jeju island.She especially pointed out that he gave tangerine chocolates to other coworkers but O-megi tteok only to her. As Askakorean blog concisely states, Women in Korea were clearly divided into two camps along the dichotomy, and it is a one-way street if they do cross the divide. Instead, Korean couples use kakaotalk messenger to keep each other updated non-stop. There’s always variations from couple to couple, but the fact that this list exists may come as a surprise.
So here, I list out some of the common occurrences of dating a Korean guy based on my personal experience and of the experiences of my lovely Korean girlfriends.In comparison to guys I’ve dated from other culture, Korean guys are great at keeping in touch, constantly.This made it hard for me to adapt to ABC guys that were texting 2,3 messages per day or every two three days because Korean guys will text you every day. It’s not that they’re more/less into you; I think it’s a norm.Yes, there are Koreans, especially those who identify as Christian, who go to church or spend time with family on Christmas, but for most people, it's a lot like Valentine's Day: a huge date night that comes with a lot of expectations.September 17th is 100 days before Christmas - if you start dating someone then, you and your partner's 100th dating day celebration (another important milestone in Korean dating culture) will be on Christmas!If you prefer bedroom gymnastics to intimate conversations, or simply haven’t got the time to put into a full blown relationship, then why not scratch that itch and find the company you crave quickly, easily and with no hassle?
