Just got asked today if I am Russian. Guess what I am wearing? Black tights, a long black skirt and a twin sweater set.= covered from head to toe. What I wear has nothing to do with people assuming I am Rusian. It happens to me all the time. For me, I think it has to do with the fact that I am not BIG like most Americans/Canadians.


Don't kid yourself, it's the white skin and nothing more. I get asked that when I'm slumming in jeans and a t-shirt all the time.

I actually asked Seoultrader what the working girls here do wear on duty, cause I was so surprised by it.

Western girls MAY on average be bigger. BUT

If you saw a western girl who looked as skinny as the "average beatiful" Korean girl, you'd be repulsed.
Koreans get away with it b/c we don't know any better

I think it's simply bred out of jealousy.

At the risk of a major generalisation, we can safely say that western women tend to have better figures than the average Korean woman. They can't stand this fact. Drives them completely nutty you see.

Here's some light haired *waygookin* putting on the same mini or top and looking about 100 times better than her Korean counterpart. How dare they.. the sheer nerve of it! Smile

It's also a shame that preconceived notions of western women in nice clothes are of Russian prostitutes. I guess first impressions really do make an impact.

jae.


You've got to be kidding???? Western women look "BETTER" than the korean women in these clothes..... NO WAY!

And by the way, I got a kick out of seeing your signature said, "Mooh"...

As in "Mooh, Cow, Mooh?"
