Boy to Man (4 days ago)
The ideal korean man doesnt look like a metrosexual with a perm. It is simply entertainment for the kids and the money flows with preteen girls. Thats what these kids want. The romantic japanime wuss. The real ideal man that women 21 - 35 are attracted to, entertainment dont show cause theres no profit. These real women are too busy working so that "maybe" they can date a real man and "maybe" have 1 child rather than spending usless hours watching entertainment about metro sexual guys with perms and rweezed eyebrows that look powerful on tv. The ideal korean man for real korean women is me.

Callista Shultz (12 days ago)
My opinion: 1. Hair/eyes 2. Idk cm... soo prob 5 ft 6in->6ft 2in (I’m pretty short) 3. Idk how much a guy should weigh... so I guess just a healthy weight for their height 4. I am pretty much ok with fair or tan skin... (I get pretty dark in the summer) 5. I think it depends on the person, but I like long hair on guys (clean cut is pretty nice too!!) 6. NO FACIAL HAIR, SHAVE IT 7. I’m too lazy to put makeup on myself, but I don’t mind if they put it on *i must admit that even though personality outweighs looks, looks still play a big part

HONESTLY all Korean guys may not be KPOP idol material but I have to say a lot of Korean guys are good looking in their own way and they really know how to dress, so compared to the guys here in America they are pretty decent
Mary Faith (24 days ago)
To be honest we don't all think korean men are handsome just cause of Kpop idols & Kdramas have made them out to be. In every country they have their visuals and they also don't.... not everyone are visuals *(ME, MYSELF & I)*
Darrell Patts (25 days ago)

Does anyone know who that model guy is or which agency he's under (if he's signed)? I think I have a pic of him I took at SFW and I'd like to send it to him
Jeyrius Chua (26 days ago)
It's really true that there is a significant amount of attention directed towards your appearance. When I was an exchange student in Korea, I feel the pressure to dress well and look good even though I'm just heading downstairs to buy some dinner or groceries. Nevertheless, it has helped me become more aware of my appearance and hence I would make an effort to dress up whenever I'm heading out. When I first returned home from Korea, it was kind of difficult to acclimatize to the way my local citizens are dressed. Thinking back, I kind of miss living in Korea because you really do get compliments along the streets and it's sort of like an acknowledgement for your effort. Just my 2 cents.

굳이 환상 부담스럽게 생각안하고 걷어낼려고 안해도 되는데.. 그게 다 한국에대한 호감이되고 한류가되는 일 아닌가 ㅎ 남자들은 한국남자를 환상갖고 보는게 부담스러운가본데 그거 별로 나쁜건아닌듯 나도 어렸을때 외국남자에대해 똑같이 환상가졌던 여자로서 ㅎㅎ 그렇게 보는 여자들은 나름 그걸로 행복을 느끼는거고 나도 어렸을때 미국문화 미디어로 접하는것땜에 환상엄청생겼지만 크면서 현실을 알게돼도 호감이 없어지진 않았음 그래서 그 나라로 관광도 가게되는거고 교류도 하게되는거고 ㅎㅎ 지금 외국여성분들이 한국남자에대한 호감을 갖고있는거 이거 현실 알아도 별로 실망 크게 안하니까 굳이 깨주려고 직접나서서 안해도됨 오히려 일케하는게 더 쿠크깨져할듯 한국에대한 호감도 빨리 식어버릴테고.. 글고 중요한건 내가보기에 한국남자들 잘생긴사람 많음 자기에맞게 잘 꾸미는게 보편화되기도했고 피지컬도 좋구. 외국분들이 환상갖고 한국와서 한국남자들봤을때 다 잘생기지않고 열에 넷만 잘생겼어도 환상 충분히 유지됨ㅎㅋ

Every Korean guy look better than western guys to me. I live in Serbia and here guys really don't care their looks, it goes to the point when they will not even wash hair and cut nails. When I go inside public bus, I am so disgusted most times, because of smell. I went to many European countries and it's same everywhere I go. But when I am in Korea I never feel like that. I wish Europeans can learn something from Korean guys and start care their look. I don't talk about height, weight and hairstyle, I'm talking about clean and healthy. And beside the look, Korean guys care more about their lover and they are more gentle than Europeans. Even if European guys try to look and act cool when they are out, at home when they can be theirselfs it's oposite, it's really disgusting.
A thing which is forgotten : in mostly caucasian countries, being asian is exotic. A man a little "ugly" in Korea/Japan/China/Taiwan/Other could be considered as attractive in those countries, same for a woman.

West prefer tanned skin don't get how looking like a ghost seems to look attractive in korea so weird.
WazifWoodstock (14 days ago)
in Asia its Fairer>Pale. Don't worry, tan skin is still as accepted like Kim Jong Kook (and damn those arms tho). Pale skin does make you look like a ghost but it's not a bad look on Asians compared to Westerners who imo looks better with tan but not too much that makes you look like the Swamp Thing
Pheng Ov (30 days ago)
Tanned skin look more healthy to me not pale vampire skin.
Pheng Ov (30 days ago)
Not so much attractive just tall compared to other Asian countries, in my opinion most not that manly with big muscles.

Hey whoever you are just want to drop by and say that you shouldn’t care about the standards of anyone based on how you look,we should all learn to love because of the Actual person and their personality not for their looks years from now all pf the beauty will fade but your personality won’t change being attractive is always on the inside it’s always about having a good caring heart💛Have a nice day☀️🌻

So for korean men, Kim Jong Un is 175 kg and 170 cm (estimated) with a ridiculous haircut. Guessing Korean women don't dig that physical measurement and style unless under the direct order of the 'Supreme Commander' himself.

Tbh, mostly only koreaboos think so, sadly. There are now many more people who are realistic about it, but a lot of people just call Korean men "gay" and "lesbians."
Reira Popescu (1 month ago)
Did you pick only handsome Korean men to interview? I keep seeing this "westerners think Korean men are handsome" but can you prove that we are wrong? I mean, most of Korean men I saw in these interviews(on the channel, not this video specifically) are good-looking, so are we wrong after all? And the fact that many Korean men didn't even know we find them attractive...huh?
Samuel Springs (18 days ago)
Reira Popescu These men look like the Asian equivalent of less attractive/average-looking White/Black men. They're not more handsome just because they're Korean.

@Bob Kay Thanks, I thought they were implying fair skin as beautiful.
Bob Kay (1 month ago)
They are just calling a shovel a shovel, the definition of fair that relates to color is"LIGHT" or blonde, that's why you dont say darker coloured skin to be fair( yo uh were probably thinking when they said fair skin that they are implying "beautiful" skin,but no). *INSERT "THER MORE YOU KNOW" RAINBOW HERE*

Because of their society's standards.. looks matter a lot, even in the work industry. That's why many koreans feel pressured.

Koreans dress very well cause they have a high standard and want to impress everyone around them. Unlike in my country, you can go outside even without a shirt or have a hole in a shirt. It doesn't really matter as long as your comfortable and not disturbing others

Personality & ideals are probably the most important thing when looking for partner, in my personal opinion. Though, there are physical attributes I'm more attracted to than others, it's ultimately someone's character & how they treat me (& make me laugh, I love that), that will determine moreso if I want to date them. Also, it saddens me how many people care about skin tone in this day & age. Imagine meeting the most "perfect" person for you & then choosing to disregard them b/c they aren't the "right" skin tone. That's absurd, in my opinion. Date whoever makes you happy EXACTLY as you are & if anything, makes you want to be a better version of yourself with each passing day. That's what really matters.

Didn't korea has the high percentage of plastic surgery even for men? So good looking surgically enhanced male or nature look chap?
JL213 (30 days ago)
No, very low percentage of plastic surgery for men. Most are natural.
koyukiny (1 month ago)
Nah. Korean men are into skin care. They love to take care of their skins but not into surgery, not for regular people. They just love to have clean cut, tidy look
