    Why do so many westerners hang out together? I think the first part of Astaroth  comment is right, "perhaps it has much to do with the fact they like to speak korean with their countrymen." People tend to do what makes them comfortable in a strange or different place.

    Korean fellows are somehow too nationalistic human kind. I have close friends from Korea since the Uni. It was interesting to see them not willing to include people from other nationalities in their team. This was beyong my belief. But they are fun people. The only thing I dislike is the young are too rude. Never seen rude teen like some of the Koreans I've met. If one doesn't have patience of the saints... u can go to jail.

    @Goldfinch 

    Good point! To be honest I have no idea, maybe they don't understand what you said???

    You got me... I've heard many times that some Koreans think they are the elite of all Asians, but I have many Korean friends that are not this way, they are very friendly and don't seem to have a superiority complex.

    What I can't fucking stand about Koreans is how half of them have an IQ below 100.  It's just intolerable.

    What I can't fucking stand about golf is that it is.  It's just intolerable.

    The problem with black people, and Indians, and Koreans, Jewish people, AND gypsies is that they all screw in lightbulbs in ethnically humorous ways.

  • Father Of Boring

    Ok, so we tagged white people, but we gotta tag the Americans in that.  And I unfortunately don't know any good American jokes.

  • Father Of Boring

    Good, got the American jokes in there, now my guilt is assauged, and I can do this, with the ones I've noticed bolded:

    You Know You've Been In Korea Too Long

    You are immune to the smell of "the kimchi breath."

    You no longer come to a complete stop at the stop sign and you never yield the right-of-way.

    You can pick up a single strand of noodles with chopsticks.

    You ask for more "ko-chu" because the kimchi-chige soup is not hot enough.

    You enjoy slurping your noodles as loudly as you can.

    Your back is sore from bowing.

    You walk down the street holding hands with your buddy.

    You ask your wife to stand outside with a baseball bat to protect your public parking space in front of the house.

    You can eat barefooted in a restaurant with a foot in your lap.

    You can cut in at the front of the line of waiting people with the best of them.

    You can fall asleep on the city bus and wake up at your stop.

    You can shovel in an entire bowl of rice and half a course of Bulkogi into your mouth before you swallow.

    You can make a left turn looking only to the right.

    People ask if you want to go by car and you respond, "No, I'm in a hurry."

    You realize that it is safer to "J" walk than use a pedestrian crosswalk.

    You wear white socks with a dark suit.

    You can use a publ

  • Father Of Boring

    You can use a public bathroom for both genders and think nothing of it.

    You crawl back into your house to get your coat, rather than take your shoes back off and walk on the floor with shoes on.

    You bow at inanimate objects.

    You walk around humming the tune the crosswalk signal lights play.

    Someone says breakfast, you think of "fish, soup and seaweed."

    You'd rather sit on the floor than in a chair.

    All your shoes are bent flat in the back.

    You let your eyes be drawn towards any female whose hair isn't black.

    Someone says "mansion" and you think of a two bedroom flat in a 400-unit apartment building.

    You mutter "Aigu" when lifting a heavy objects.

    You suck in air through your teeth before saying "no" to anything.

    You start growling and spitting inside your mouth to add emphasis to what you are about to say.

    You always wave your left hand to signal you are going to cut in front of another driver without looking first.

    You select shoes based on how easily you can get them on and off.

    You carry chopsticks in your back pocket.

    You enjoy putting lots of red pepper sauce on your salads or French-fries.

    You don't freak out when the salad arrives with octopus legs still wiggling on top of it.

     

  • Father Of Boring

    Actually, Koreans will love those jokes, 'cause whatever else you say about Koreans, they're pretty cool.  

    YOU, I think, met some uncool Koreans.  There are uncool people in every group.  Anybody who goes to KTV w/ extras and plays golf is generally uncool, not just Koreans.  别一言概括什么什么那套道理你都听过,不重复了。

  • 叮噹叔叔 (令狐叮噹)

    ...

    Hahahahaha ... I am not sure if I am cool, or not, but I am definitely the unthin ...

    PS. I am not Korean, heehee ...

  • 叮噹叔叔 (令狐叮噹)

    ...

    (continued) ... the entire race of "bold" font is really uncool, even worse than "caps", because it is tiring for my eyes ... now, if anyone is reading, that's my "racist" comment ...

    ... and Kyle, you know what else is uncool? I was waiting the whole week for you and/or Val to call me ... and that's not cool ...

    PS. the "holding hand" thing between two men is also commonly noticed in Beijing (probably all over China) ...

  • Father Of Boring

    Dude, if you don't play golf and sit cheap KTV girls, you're cool.  

  • Father Of Boring

    Exactly, that's one of the first things Rockstar taught me.  Don't wipe your own ass, get other people do it for you.  THEN you're cool.

  • 叮噹叔叔 (令狐叮噹)

    ...

    (continued) ... hahahaha ... I am one of the rare middle-age who does not go to KTV (cheap or otherwise) nor play golf (that's only because I am not as rich as Rick) ... guess I am still cool then?

  • 叮噹叔叔 (令狐叮噹)

    ...

    (continued) ... hahahaha ... but we have (successfully) detoured a thread about Korean to coolness ... that must count for something ...

  • Simen Wangberg

    We were ambushed/hung out with four Korean gals last week at CVS - they were completely and utterly trashed, and a lot of fun. I have never known anyone, of any nationality or gender, to drink so much and so quickly. I was thoroughly impressed.

  • Silje Linnerud

    yeah, Devonye I heard you and I totally understand the way you feel. But hey, don't forget we all have something shallow in ourselves, and everyone adores pretty faces. Forget about the content of Korean soap opera, the good looking young faces are entertaining enough. Don't get me wrong, I am not encouraging you to watch the shows that you don't enjoy. I don't watch them, either. My point is, it's not about Korean ppl, TV shows are just shows. Most of them are pretty stupid, and don't forget about China's shows, they suck all the time. 

  • Silje Linnerud

    well, apparently it's something I don't know, Kyle. Grin....

    (continued) ... hahahaha ... Regan (or Lee?), still going on your date tonight? And dont blame me, Kyle was the one who mentioned "soap operas" ...

    Kyle and Wei ... no recommendation or particular preference for Korean restaurant (in Beijing or otherwise), since we cannot handle hot and spicy very well ... heehee, that reminded me of the "zombie scene" at a Korean BBQ restaurant back in Sydney a few years ago, but I will delay it as it is lunch time for most people now ...

    I think this whole China Rising thing will fizzle out because Chinese TV is boring.Eventually the Koreans will become the dominant cultural force in Asia, because Starcraft is more popular than King of Fighters '99, and Girl's Generation/SNSD is becoming so popular that even Japanese are going crazy for K-pop. If they could start producing porn that's as weird as the Japanese stuff but without mosaics and less of that awful squealing, Korea would become an unstoppable cultural buggernaut and finally show those jjokbari who's boss.

    I for one welcome our new Korean masters.

    @Scott, Who gives a shit about that? Calling corndogs "Korean hotdogs"--now THAT is some stone cold cultural imperialism right there. How dare they steal the traditional food of carnival rednecks? This aggression will not stand, man.

    Here's something else that's wrong with Korean people: I was playing four-in-a-row with some Koreans using a weiqi board (which, according to them, was also a Korean invention), and when I had executed a decisive move using that set up two open intersecting three-in-a-row lines, they told me the move was illegal according to "Korean rules".
