Thanks to K-pop and Korean dramas, people overseas have a certain image of Korean men. But what do Koreans think about the ideal Korean guy? We hit the streets of Seoul to find out.
The opinions expressed in this video are those of individual interviewees alone and do not reflect the views of ASIAN BOSS or the general Korean population.

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. ;)
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!!
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. 😍
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.
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.
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!
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.
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. 😂
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)
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.
An analysis of representative literature concerning the widely recognized ineffective learning of "place-value" by American children arguably also demonstrates a widespread lack of understanding of the concept of place-value among elementary school arithmetic teachers and among researchers themselves. Just being able to use place-value to write numbers and perform calculations, and to describe the process is not sufficient understanding to be able to teach it to children in the most complete and efficient manner.
A conceptual analysis and explication of the concept of "place-value" points to a more effective method of teaching it. However, effectively teaching "place-value" (or any conceptual or logical subject) requires more than the mechanical application of a different method, different content, or the introduction of a different kind of "manipulative". First, it is necessary to distinguish among mathematical 1) conventions, 2) algorithmic manipulations, and 3) logical/conceptual relationships, and then it is necessary to understand each of these requires different methods for effective teaching. And it is necessary to understand those different methods. Place-value involves all three mathematical elements.
Practice versus Understanding.
Almost everyone who has had difficulty with introductory algebra has had an algebra teacher say to them "Just work more problems, and it will become clear to you. You are just not working enough problems." And, of course, when you cant work any problems, it is difficult to work many of them. Meeting the complaint "I cant do any of these" with the response "Then do them all" seems absurd, when it is a matter of conceptual understanding. It is not absurd when it is simply a matter of practicing something one can do correctly, but just not as adroitly, smoothly, quickly, or automatically as more practice would allow. Hence, athletes practice various skills to make them become more automatic and reflexive; students practice reciting a poem until they can do it smoothly; and musicians practice a piece until they can play it with little effort or error. And practicing something one cannot do very well is not absurd where practice will allow for self-correction. Hence, a tennis player may be able to work out a faulty stroke himself by analyzing his own form to find flawed technique or by trying different things until he arrives at something that seems right, which he then practices. But practicing something that one cannot even begin to do or understand, and that trial and error does not improve, is not going to lead to perfection or --as in the case of certain conceptual aspects of algebra-- any understanding at all.
