Many people say that South Koreans make the best girlfriends in the world. Men across the globe have what’s called ‘Korean fever,’ because they are so desirable. They are sexy, sweet, loyal, fun, and have an innocence not found in other women.
It’s not all fun and games though. Korean women expect the world from their partners. Women always expect a lot from their men, but Koreans take it to a whole new level.
If you think you know what it takes to date a South Korean girl, then think again. Here are six tips that will help you understand them better.

Your Pleasure Is Also Hers
One of the behaviors ingrained in South Korean women is how subservient they are. Her priority is to make sure you are satisfied at all times. Whether it be food, sex, or comfort, she wants you to make sure you’re attended to.
She will show you the highest respect and be utterly loyal to you. You need to be careful with this type of girl though. She isn’t one you can dump easily. She will be a lasting partner, and you will find it difficult to let go.
So we all know how K-pop singers and celebrities all look super cute but are they like that in real life? The short answer is yes, and the long answer is definitely yes!
One of the main appeals of dating a Korean girl is just how cute they are. One look into their pretty eyes and I guarantee you’ll fall in love. However, don’t think for a second that they don’t know what they’re doing. They have a secret weapon for being extra cute, known as Aegyo.
Aegyo is when a girl uses a cute display of affection. It’s typically expressed through the use of a cute/baby voice, sweet facial expression, and adorable gestures. They use this tactic on those whom they care about deeply. So if you notice your heart melting, it might be because Aegyo is being used on you.
Korean Girls Are Highly Educated
Korean women are some of the most highly educated demographic in all of Asia. A recent study has found that up to 92% of all Korean girls continue to higher education after high school.
This means that they are well rounded and possess a great deal of knowledge and probably a university degree. So if you come looking for love, make sure to pack your brain as well. They treasure intelligence and hold it in high regard. They will adore you if you respect but also challenge their intellect.
You don’t need to be a genius with multiple PhDs to enter the dating scene. However, you do need to be quite sharp.
We can all admit to being addicted to our smartphones, but Koreans are inseparable from their phones. With that in mind, you need to keep yours close at hand at all times. If she sends you a message do not wait to respond. Be lightning fast with your phone if she asks you anything.
Missing a call from her might be the worst crime you can commit. If you do, be prepared for a flurry of calls and texts asking why you couldn’t pick up. We advise that you take the initiative and phone her regularly and send many texts throughout the day.
Be Prepared To Spend Plenty of Money
One downside in Korean culture is the infatuation of money and material goods. They value expensive gifts, fancy cars, and prestigious jobs. Financial stability is something that many Korean women look for in a man.
They like to go out and eat at fancy restaurants often. Also, don’t even think about trying to split the bill. You’re expected to pay for everything on the date. Although this is changing over time, it’s still a safe bet to assume that you’ll always pick up the tab.
You won’t be doing yourself any favors if you try to be cheap. Many Korean girls will not respond well to this kind of behavior. Of course not every Korean girl is shallow. However, as a general rule, expect to shell out ample amounts of money if you start dating in Korea.
Social media is ubiquitous no matter where you are. However, Koreans are notorious for their regular social media use. Wherever you go with your date or whatever you do will all end up on social media. While this seems harmless, it ends up adding loads of pressure and anxiety to a relationship.
This pressure manifests itself because your relationship turns into a competition against others. Your girlfriend will continuously be measuring your relationship versus those of her friends. If a friend is posting lovely gifts or lavish vacations, you’ll be expected to do the same or better.
So our advice is to take it somewhat seriously and stay ahead in this competition. You will need to keep the dates interesting, the gifts romantic, and the trips unforgettable.
