The more innocent a Korean girl appears, the more attractive she becomes to her suitors.
This poses an interesting dilemma for college-age Korean girls.
You can start dating a freshman, and enjoy the oh-so-wonderful pangs of young and innocent love, then suffer the consequences by being torn apart for three years.
To an American, the motto may go something like: "Look Poor, Act Rich" -we like to look good, without appearing as if we are trying to hard.
But a Korean motto is quite the opposite; for example, a Korean woman will dress to a T with designer clothes, high-quality makeup and five-inch heels...if you compliment her on any of these stylish choices, her response will probably be something like, "Oh this? " It's considered rude to gloat on a compliment..truth be told, both men and women consider appearance to be high on their list of criteria when choosing a partner, because it's not just the person you spend weekends with, it's the person you're going to be I'm not going to pretend like Korean guys are going around holding doors for women and opening car doors, but couples are often seen together, the man holding the woman's purse and/or books, while also holding her hand. Maybe....but, probably it's more a case of plain old-fashioned chivalry. Apparently you can have your cake and eat it too...
Korean college-age girls however, talking to them, you'd think they were 16-year olds.
Their standards are unbelievably high, and their ideals are unwavering.
The difficulty of making a college relationship last is exponentially increased when the couple finds themselves in different parts of their lives, with different goals and different ideals.
Most Korean women will finish their degrees and move on to the career field or onto higher education far earlier than Korean men; let's be clear here though: Korean men do not resent this responsibility as much as you might think.
in fact, it's considered an honor to serve one's country, just as in any culture.
