Not True.

As I am in Korea, I have been reading blogs about Seoul.

I am fed up of seeing posts about Korean guys only liking Korean girls and light girls. Or Korean people looking at black people funny and ignoring foreigners when they ask for help. This is not true.

I don’t know if people who are writing these blogs have actually been to Seoul, or any part of Korea for that matter, but I really think they haven’t. I’ve been here for one month and I have not suffered any racism, and this is what you are accusing them of when you say they ignore you or look at you funny.

I’ve had more problems in London than I have had in Seoul.

Everyone here is kind! Yes they may stare a little bit, but they are just curious! You can not assume that they are thinking the worst. I have an example:

I am here to study, so when I have a break I go to the shop located inside the university. The women who works in the shop always stared at me funny. I noticed but it didn’t bother me. After 2 weeks, she told my Korean friend that I am very beautiful.

Now tell me, if I had been rude or thought the worse about this lady, she would probably still think I’m pretty but she would not tell me. She wasn’t thinking anything bad!

Every shop I’ve been into, every person I’ve met, has been nothing but nice to me! I get a few stares, yes, but who cares?!?! People stare no matter where you go! I find myself looking at people for longer than two seconds too!

Also, I have had several dates since I have been here. I’ve had guys come up to me and tell me I am pretty. I am considered very dark in comparison to a Korean person.

We should not generalise people. It is like saying all Black guys like girls with big butts, or that all white guys like blondes.

Koreans are the most friendliest race I have met.

Love

I knew that I would have fun in Korea, but I did not think that I would fall in love. You know when you get the feeling that something is right and you fit together perfectly, even though you have differences, such as skin colour and the language barrier? When you see something so beautiful and you have so much respect for it because all you are shown is respect, even though I am alien.

I don’t care about the people who stare and I barely notice them because I am in awe. There is that sudden moment when I am in bed and think ‘damn, this is actually happening’. I feel like we were meant to be and there is nothing that can get in the way.

You ask how I can be in love when I’ve only been in Korea for one week. Well, you fall in love when you least expect it. I know that it sounds like a fairy tale but love at first sight is the only way to describe it. I do not know if the love is returned but I will find out by being patient.

I am in love with Korea.

Fears

I was just thinking about what scares me, other than ladybirds (see my last post), & I thought I’d make a post about it.

What I am scared of;

Clowns – Halloween, when I was about 7, I went to my friends house. She lived just two minutes away. I decided to go home & to my surprise the door was locked because my mum thought I was already in. I knocked on the door, she thought I was a trick or treat-er & ignored me. I turned around & a car is pulling up, a man in a clown mask jumps out of the car & starts spraying the streets with fireworks, laughing like a mad man. I was terrified! My mum ansewered the door.

Twins – I have friends that are twins & I recently found out that the guy I like is a twin. An identical twin. I’m fine when I see identical twins one at a time. But when they are together, I don’t know why, my brain stops working & I feel kinda shocked. (Luckily, I heard that they guy I like looks slightly different to his twin!) But sometimes I think having a twin is probably one of the best things ever! Their bonds are amazing.

Those are the only fears that I can think of that I consider small phobias.

Weird? Normal? Let me know!
