Been living in South Korea 13 years now, ask me anything!

Postby perchorin on Wed Apr 03, 2013 10:49 pm

Seems like there's a lot of hysteria and misinformation out there due to Fatty Kim and the Norks. I've been living in this part of the world for 13 years now so thought I'd do CC a public service and volunteer to answer any questions you might have. Ask away.

Of course! Just my wife now though but she's also a local girl.

It doesn't bother me at all and never really did. Also there are far far worse smelling foods over here but strangely enough, the worse they smell the better they generally taste. For example: Image
cheon guk jang is basically extra-fermented soy bean paste stew. Sounds wretched and smells like boiled dirty socks but the stuff tastes magnificent!

There are few phrases that stir such feelings in me like "ask me anything" and many of them are inappropriate to mention in public so thanking you in advance Perchorin.

Q: Saxi says that people from Korea smell really bad. Is this true?

In general, what do South Koreans think about the current situation with North Korea? Are they worried? Are they convinced it's just bluster? Or do they want to get to war and unify Korea once again?

Which do you find more disturbing... the sabre rattling of the Norks
or the bullish response from some talking heads in the west?

Glad to be of service Funkyterrance. Saxi is sadly misinformed. While I'm pretty sure the ratio of stinky people to non-stinky people is fairly uniform regardless of ethnicity, in my experience Chinese folks tend to be extra-fragrant. I sat next to one Chinese dude on a 14 hour (totally full) flight across the Pacific who must have shit his pants a few times on the voyage and just didn't care.

Maybe next time I'm drunk. Sadly it's 1 in the afternoon on a Thursday here and I've not got a drop in me.

South Koreans don't even blink at this shit anymore. It's been pretty much the same for going on 60 years now, you get used to it. In fact, most of the people here don't understand why Americans get so freaked out about it all. I have to explain to them the "YOUR KIDS ARE IN DANGER! (details after these commercial messages)" mentality of the media in the States. That's not to say nobody believes shit won't go down someday, but after all this time they're not getting excited about anything until shit actually does go down.
As for wanting reunification, most South Koreans under 40 don't want that at all (though few would admit it) because they know they'd all be dirt poor again for a generation if they had to dig the North out of the economic hole they dug themselves into.

Definitely the latter. The Nork leadership isn't suicidal and they know if it came to war they'd all be flash fried in the first 30 minutes. The only way something really bad is ever going to happen is if the US or China want it to happen, or a series of really stupid mistakes and misunderstandings are made. Apparently the Nork border guys are under strictest orders to NOT SHOOT AT ANYTHING EVER unless told otherwise from someone upstairs just to avoid the latter scenario.

How would you describe the general reaction of male Koreans to white, Western foreigners?

(I've heard South Korean males can generally be a bit xenophobic).

2. How do Koreans generally feel about the US presence of military there? What's there general take on US involvement with their country?
