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.




I nominate this post for Troll of the Year award.

I've seen older Korean men upbraid Korean women, not only on their clothes, but the way they were sitting in a subway car.

Not that long ago, the police were fining women who wore mini-skirts.

There is no way around it, whether all things are equal or not, you are wrong.

I must admit, I do find massively overweight, triple chinned, beer bellied, XXXXX-Large figures quite attractive at times...

Hey it looks like I got a "XYZ of the year" award, even though it's quite probably the worst you can get on a discussion forum like this.

Are people avoiding reading the other posts in the thread on purpose?

Apologies if my original post rubbed the wrong way on people (which it has). I'll make sure I make any cynicism or sarcasm is utterly overstated next time round.

Sorry.

Embarassed

jae.

Take a random sampling of say 10 Korean young women and compare them to an equal number of Canadian girls.

With an unbiased male audience (guys interested in both Asian and Western girls) as judges, my bets on the Koreans.

Why?

(1). I'm from Canada; don't let the great outdoors fool you. Mac D's and
reruns of Friends triumph here.

(2). If Canadian girls are a fairly good indicator of North American
fashion sense, then dresses don't enter our girl's vocabulary.

(3). Then, there's general attitude and bearing. Let's admit something
everyone already knows. Canadian girls aren't "women" in figurative
sense of the term "real women".
Fashion is to blame for part of this as is personal style. Canadian
girls, even on the West Coast walk like men. They proclaim to fart
bleech, calling themselves 'real girls', without realizing how most men
really find such behaviour repulsive.

The fact they'd admit to such unbecoming behaviour just illustrates
how in the dark they really are.

Then, there's the fucking feminist lot and I won't go there cause it's a
subject I avoid at all costs. Suffice it to say, however, that few men
like political activism. Reliance on euphemisms and hedge words to
keep things on a date going smoothly doesn't translate into long
lasting romance.

Korean girls however:

Sure, so much depends on taste. Some guys have the 'yellow fever'; others are more laid-back; a hot chick is hot.

Here's a quick summary of what Korean women have on their North American pals (Canadian).

(1). A sense of style.

Pancake consistency or not, the make up most Korean girls wear is
such that a plain girl looks better. Men like eye candy.

Some complain, normally the roamy, pallid faced ESL chick type that
Korean girls dress up too much. Bull shit. Jealously is the reason for
such remarks.

Not only do Korean girls know what looks good (oversized shoes
excluded) but they are willing to dress to impress. Where North
American chicks (the same ones who confess to belching and farting)
are quite content to throw on a sweater and jeans, Koreans actually
look like they spent time in the mirror.

They are also realistic as far a fashion goes. The old saying "wearing
spandex is a privelege, not a right" doesn't go unheeded. Criticize
them as you may, I guarantee you'd be hard pressed to find a
pudgy girl wearing model styled clothes.

(2). They have that intrinsic sense of "woman". This is what makes the
hot ones smoking and elevates the mediocre cookies to the level of
"hotties".

It's hard to pinpoint, though men always feel it. European women
have it, too. Feminine grace affects everything from how they sit
and speak to the way they make love.

Some argued the Western standard of beauty is ultimately the one to go by and I agree; quite obviously, were it not, then cosmetic surgery in Korea would not enjoy the popularity it does.

Nonetheless, all things considered, Korean women in general, better styled, more feminine and possessing on the whole more slender and dainty bodies easy take first place over their North American counterparts.

A hot chick is a hot chick! I agree with that..
I also agree korean girls. To the human eye may have great bodies. but I think we are just talking about THIN here.
yes in general asian girls are much thinner per capita.
But come on! there a plenty of HOT WOMAN back home too. lets not let this yellow fever totally cloud our heads..
I do agree too that korean woman are jealous of western woman..
not many korean woman come close to our models
koreas famous (HA ri soo) model was a guy now woman they all say her body is the closest to a western woman..
using brittany spears was a bad choice I know.. I mean full figured.
toned. good curves.. I think its all the tities!!
korean girls as we all know IN GENERAL yes I know there a few pamelas out there.. but in general are small woman..
and I think they all want bigger breasts be a little taller and more curved and with alittle more arse.. thats what the K girls tell me..
but lets not say there are no hot girls back home because thats just not true! there are plenty of foreign asian students Laughing Laughing

no no ok. I mean open a vogue mag, or look at music videos, or watch TV we have a lot beautiful woman goddesses but when you have a disease
as the yellow fever it impairs your vision,,
yes I will admit I have been bitten bad..
but I am not bias, when I see a hot white, black latin girl.. I will be like DAMN! she is fine!!!
give credit where credit is due..
ok im rambling now..
ciao

Wow! Look how quickly this turned into a "Western women are fat" thread.

I'd better have another chocolate bar to make myself feel better. Shocked

Speaking of food, in light of how Liam like to call average looking Korean women "cookies," please remember don't feed the trolls!

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.

I foud that they are less forgiving of all foreigners in general. It's only worse when you are a Korean woman dating or married to a foreigner. It is that institutionalized victim/ "mein kampf" mentality.

Cheers,

Joe Thanks

Here’s one wag’s opinion (my own):
I prefer women who look like something out of a Tinto Brass spectacular: voluptuous but not obese. Black women are very beautiful, as are many Japanese women, some Korean women, some western women, Latina women, etc. I much prefer someone who’s comfortable to hug over the Auschwitz chic that many Chinese and Korean men like. Catwalk skeletons are not fer me.,.. Women who have no flab look like teen boys, really –and that ain’t my bag, for sure!

My two useless won,

Joe

The perception of Americans being the largest.. looks like its Samoans..

http://www.miami.com/mld/miamiherald/news/5959829.htm?template=contentModules/printstory.jsp

Quote:
Americans are not the heaviest people in the world. For example, 34 percent of American women are obese, nearly identical to the rate in Bahrain, Paraguay and Malta, according to IOTF estimates. But Pacific Islanders have the world's highest obesity rate - 75 percent among Samoan women.


Here are global weights..
