It’s partly because many of my Korean friends think there is no such thing as friendship between a girl and a guy.
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.
You get freaking spoiled (sometimes annoyed) by how much they will contact you, but this means anxiety triples when they become MIA.
Do dress up on your dates because these Korean boys will dress up/suit up every time they take you out.
Getting permission almost never worked because they’d be calling constantly and checking up on her. Okay, I may be exaggerating a tiny bit, but Korean couples tend to be extremely bonded and with such bond comes such craziness. I think breakups rarely end in good terms among Korean couples.
Some are really extreme: for instance, once four of my girl friends were out, and my girlfriend’s bf asked her to take a photo of her outfit to make sure it’s not too scandalous. I see tons of Canadian friends being friends with their ex but I rarely see Korean couples continuing to be friends after a break-up.
