Japanese men are much better looking than korean men. Most of the Koreans do plastic surgery unlike Japanese have natural face.

I don't know what Asian Boss is trying to prove when most of the guys they interview in this video are relatively good-looking...

It's a shame people find tall attractive. From a bio/physics perspective tall is worse as it casuses greater strain on the body and increases risk of injury. Tall and large people are just more affected gravity and don't live quite as long. Smaller is cuter too. ;)

It's because of K-POP for the most part and not K dramas

Imagine, how stressful would it be living in the society judging the looks not before knowing the actual person. I just wanna say that those judging people need to learn how to mind their own business. There are so many nosy people out there in Korea due to the pressures to care about how people would think of my looks or me generally. I don't like that pressures to do makeups for caring about how people see me. But the girls!!! Always saying something about the looks in the back and I can hear that!! "She must have the plastic surgeries!", like this! I hate the girls saying this. They should stfu and mind their own businesses and it's so annoying!!
I just realized i have not seen a korean guy with facial hair
I do not understand those numbers
They look good but they all look same😑😑😑

K-POP have succeeded in turning narrow eyes into a fashion trend.
EVERSINCE, I DONT ASSUME THAT ALL KOREAN GUYS ARE ALL HANDSOME JUST LIKE ANY OTHER MEN IN OTHER COUNTRIES. BUT LET'S ADMIT THAT IT'S THEIR FASHION SENSE, GOOD SKIN, AND BEING TALL MAKES THEM LOOK HOTTER AND HANDSOME. JUST MY OPINION. 😍😂😂 PS: I JUST WANT TO ADD THEIR PROMINENT SHOULDERS THOUGH. 😍

Min 4:00!!!! I am in love '😍 I really like real life asian boys!! Otherwise I wouldn't love my bf 😅
Jordyn Brown (2 days ago)
I thought it was interesting that the women said the ideal height was about 175-180cm. That's about 5'7"- 5'9", which I don't consider very tall for a man. Maybe because I'm 5'8" and from the States so my ideal for men's height is much taller. So that makes me wonder what is about the average height of Korean women in order for them to consider 175-180cm tall.
Angie (22 hours ago)
Averege Korean woman height is 161cm and man is 174cm

The comments are filled with foreigners who haven’t educated themselves properly on why some koreans find certain skin tones ideal/ less ideal. Personal opinion: skin tone doesn’t matter. But you WILL find people who DO care regardless of where their from lol.

Prachi Rahate (2 days ago)
No one is happy with what they have.... Asians want pale skin European prefer tan skin and so take sun bath... Tall wants to be short and short wants to be tall.... Fat wants to be thin and thin wants to be fat.... Asian go for surgery to attain double eyelids and K-pop fans worldwide wish that they had Asian features..... Irony is what thing considered as acceptable trend in one place is not acceptable in other places... Grass is greener on the other side... 😅🤦‍♀️ 🤦‍♀️ Everyone is awesome in their own ways.. Just be you, that's all it matters...

I honestly agree with the guy at 1:27 Something I like the most about specifically Korean guys, is they tend to dress really nice and neat. If a guy isn't that physically attractive to me, dressed really nice and had a great personality, I'd definitely be in love!
schuuichiminamino (2 days ago)
"Not all Korean guys are handsome". 90% of the Korean male interviewed look any less than attractive. I'm 178 70kg fair skin. Please give me some love ㅋㅋㅋ
Nicole Grant (2 days ago)
I didn't think many people thought this way! Like, I thought most celebrities across the world would be considered handsome and attractive, and not really a reflection of the general public.
Exotic Omlette (2 days ago)
i never googled 175cm in my life so quickly, turns out it’s around 5’8”
It’s crazy how beauty standards differ worldwide... some guys that Koreans would consider extremely unattractive may very much be highly attractive here in the west, and some guys they’d consider attractive are probably not so attractive here... wild huh

Seriously, I can spend all day watching your videos! I should not do it but I can perfectly spend around 2 hours. Love your contents! I find quite interesting the evolution of the question that have been done. The ideal of a "one full head taller than me" it's really common in the girls who have been reading manga or watching anime.
Gizem Demirkan (3 days ago)
4:17 i am shocked. how is that possible?
SF9 Rowoon: is 192 cm Ideal height: *Am I a joke to you?*
Iris Wildeman (3 days ago)
Tall, older and kind (with kind smile). That would be the ideal. And yes, kdrama gives us western women a look at, obviously, handsome model-like men that are made to be perfect. Always acting cold but then warming up to be super romantic etc. Heck they can even make comic book characters or aliens look beautiful. I'd say So Jisub is someone I'd look for. I didn't like his appearance much at first but the way he smiles and speaks made me fall for him and now I think he's gorgeous haha. Of course men in Korea don't all look like kpop/drama stars. Idols are made like that because of their companies. Natural normal everyday Korean guys look much nicer, friendlier. Wow long story. 😂
Iris Wildeman (3 days ago)
+career guidance I love how sweet he sounds and looks, like an actual genuine nice guy outside his acting roles. Like in his interviews.. such a sweetheart. ☺ plus very handsome 😊

Ya So Jisub is my favorite too. I love his voice.
princess Luna kusuma (3 days ago)
if this is what people think of ALL KOREAN MEN then its a prove of how ignorant people are i mean to think that korean men are all handsome its like thinking that all white people are nice lmfao, its sad at how ignorant it is if its true (that all thinking like that)

Facial hair? Asian? That combination just doesn't work. Asian can't really grow beard, for what I've noticed.

It takes longer for them to grow one, but they can.

“But in the end, what’s important is the actual person.” Wise words, I heartily agree 🙌🏼. Inner beauty always shines the best, looks fade over time.
Tunmise Mabinuori (3 days ago)
To be very honest we been knew all korean men don’t look like kpop or kdrama celebs.Only delusional little koreaboos think y’all are dreamy. To me my fangirling only goes as far as the music and drama no hard feelings. To those ladies saying korean men don’t really look good in beards or stubble🤚🏾🤚🏾🤚🏾they’re tripping here’s a list of these smexy ass korean actors that rock their beards to the max 1. Gong yoo 2. Cha Seung won 3. Son seung heon 4. Kim Kang woo 5. Choi Si-won 6. Jang hyuk(my Daddy) 7. Kim Nam Gil 🤤🤤🤤 8.YOO AH IN 9. Lee Byung hun 10. Choi min soo You need to see how this men pull off their beards but I guess preferences is why they are prejudiced against facial hair.

04:48 makes absolutely no sense! So you can’t be well dressed or look clean cut if you have darker skin? 🤔 because those traits are better suited to fair skin? Yeah Ok.....

I visited Seoul last week for the first time and what struck me was how good looking the men and women are, even though most of the men all have the same haircut.

+Travis C It hasn't become more common these days? Is it true that Korean women are interested in Western men?
Travis C (1 day ago)
Johnny Irvine neither, they date within their race which is Korean. You might see a Korean girl with a black or white guy once in a while but that’s it. Straight Korean.

Asians are generally known to be short in height, the media is really warping that perception. Expecting all men to be 180cm and up, while the average height is 170cm.
