  8. Mike says:

    To me, Korean girls are probably the most beautiful ones in the world. Let’s make an example about the Lady, Songa Min. She is one of the typical Koreans with that graceful look. She is like an Angel.

  11. Mía says:

    Oh! So is that difficult to make korean friends as well?
    I´m in a project about koreans living here in Brazil, so I think I´ll really have a hard time to get to these people. Right?

    Any tips? Any recommendation?

  12. Mike says:

    I have a lot of Korean friends at my workplace — some have become very close to me. They are very polite and friendly. However, it is so hard to approach a Korean lady whom I have a crush on. I love her so much… I have started loving her since I first met her in a public place. Now I keep thinking of her anytime… anyplace… she is very graceful. She also has given me a green light to get to know about her in some ways. Unfortunately, her husband eventually sensed it in a way that we both had wanted to know about each other… and since then, we can’t meet as often as we could. I still love her so much… much more than I would love myself. I am just so devasted since then. I need your sincere advice. Thank You!

    Hey guys! There’s lots of Koreans here in the Philippines too, specially at Paranaque city. Back in 2007 when I worked there, Koreans living at BF homes subdivision would take public transport and chat loudly with each other. They also dont mind if they get to party with new people, and I liked that!

    My friends are always making me meet guys for 소개팅 and they choose men are so unappealing,
    we have nothing in common. however when i meet someone who i like and start to date i later discover they are married. ㅜ.ㅜ i think i am destined to be single.
