Lotte also isn't quite as big in Japan. I didn't see many ridiculously overpriced "Lotte Castle" apartments and department stores.

Why do the most bitter people have the wackiest avatars? Is there some sort of inverse rule going on?

I doubt he was an immigration officer. Just another netizen with sand in his crack.

When you're twenty, you are very concerned with what other people say about you.
When you're forty, you couldn't care less what other people say about you.
When you're sixty, you realize other people weren't even talking about you in the first place.

Some anonymous Korean blogger supposedly visiting Germany wrote an email asking all Korean netizens to spread the word that this Misuda girl is bad mouthing Koreans.

None of the Korean newspapers even bothered to read the book in question, interview any real people, nor did any investigative journalism. They just copied word for word, what was gossiped in the story. My jaw just dropped when I read this story because they didn't quote any sources other than a malicious chain email. What the hell is wrong with the media in Korea?? This is not even real professional journalism, it's just pure gossip mongering. I feel sorry for that German girl.

Even if everything the gossip says is true, to even think that this even made the story, is much more embarrassing.

Korean journalism is just pathetic as much as japan's.

BTW, her face is just meh. Far from beauty.

This is one thing I don't like about Korea, is the journalism. They should be held to higher standards.

I hear rumors of a show "Chat with Beaus," or the male foreigner version of "Chat with Beauties." It'll be interesting to see a handsome white guy show a photo of his probably overweight and so-so looking Korean girlfriend, a phenomenon I see so much of in Korea.

Misuda girls are full of crap. Anyone catch that episode where they bashed foreign guys with Korean girls?


They did not bash them. They pointed out, quite correctly, that even those who are losers back home still do quite well in Korea. That is true: just being white is enough to get all the in-out/in-out you could ever want in Korea. The real problem is that the lucky bums would rather believe that they do better in Korea because the women back home can't see that they are obviously superior men, whereas the Korean wonem can. So there feelings are hurt at the mention that even a three-headed guy would be banging like crazy provided he was white.



Yeah, you're a moron.

Spoken like someone who doesn't know the dating scene of many other foreigners here in Korea.

I know plenty of guys who had dry spells. Just becuase you are a foreigner, it doesn't mean you will automatically get lucky.



Simply put, guys who couldn't get a date back home will have the same troubles here. This is also the case with many newbies, who buy into the beleif that all foreigners are treated like gold when they come to Korea.


Guys who dated back home, will do quite well here. Granted they are decent looking and can make a girl laugh.


Guys who could play the field back home will be fishing in a kid's pool here in Korea. Just keep your girls in different parts of the city. It's large enough to do so.
