  • Why are South Korea and China fighting over kimchi?

    Let’s get the first thing out of the way: Kimchi is Korean. That should be obvious. Kimchi is Korea’s most iconic food, like how Sushi is Japan’s most iconic food. The outrage between Korean and Chinese netizens stems over whether ‘pao cai’ is actually the same thing as kimchi – it is not. Both Pao Cai…

  • Why do Koreans eat dogs?

    The dogs they eat in Korea are a special breed of dogs. It doesn’t mean they are eating the same breeds as their pets. At first I was against dog eating too but then it kind of made sense to me – there’s WILD Dogs, we just don’t see them very often. And if we…

The reason though is not what people think. It is NOT plastic surgery. A simple look at…

  • What do non-Koreans dislike about Korean culture and Korean people?

    1. Racism I wish Koreans would stop worshipping white people and treating white people different than other foreigners. Black people, Hispanics, and other non-Korean Asians all get treated differently, or “lower” than white people get treated and this is an issue common to most Asian countries I think. Because of Hollywood and history, white people…
