I’m European, you can call me Oegukeen. My boyfriend is Korean – Kimchi Man – which makes us an interracial, intercontinental and international (did I forget anything? :) ) couple.
While this relationship has been nothing short of a wonderful experience for both of us, we noticed that a lot of negativity is circling around the web about Koreans dating non-Koreans. His parents will certainly be against you, he will expect you to be obedient housewife while he drinks into wee hours with his coworkers, he will be aggressive and jealous…
There are all kinds of Korean men and what your boyfriend is like depends only on which guy YOU chose.
My Korean boyfriend is nothing like this. He is kind and caring, and his parents have been wonderful to me. That doesn’t mean all Korean families are like that. But like every person, they should be given a chance to make an impression before they get judged.
While interracial relationship poses some new challenges we never felt neither burdened nor discouraged. After all, love beats everything, right?
