Kim, along every character like her, has become a sort of archetypal ghost that looms over sex and dating between white people and People of Color.
Miss Saigon is at once reflection and root of the sexualized racism that constructs bodies of color as disposable, a delicious but cheap form of sexual take-out.
Their different senses of morality will conveniently keep things from progressing too quickly and sometimes they won't move at all, since the character won't be as fun if they go straight. Compare Go-Karting with Bowser (when the relationship is platonic rather than romantic or sexual), Loves My Alter Ego (for similar relationships between heroes and bystanders), and Defecting for Love (which happens when the Catwoman decides to go straight after all).
The same concerns about getting rid of the dramatic tension that fuel Will They or Won't They? Easily overlaps with Villainesses Want Heroes and Trickster Girlfriend.

I say “the country you’re in” and not “the nationality of the person you’re dating” because I believe that, at least in the beginning, you cannot assume that a local will know the dating rules in your country; on the other hand, if you are the displaced one, you may already know all too well about this little thing called “cultural differences”.
The dream of every foreign woman, and a few gay men too…But how make this dream come true? One big mistake a bunch of people make when dealing with love and relationships is to assume that: Wrong!
How can I articulate the Problem of Miss Saigon in the context of lived experience?
How do I “prove” that such a subtle yet all-consuming form of racism is an actual occurrence, as opposed to the feverish hypersensitivity of an insecure mind?
When the West looks at Asia, it creates a vision for itself about what Asia means – a subordinate vision, a dream that reshapes itself to feed whatever hunger the West is feeling in the moment: for exoticism, for adventure, for a barbarian nation to civilize, for a source of ancient wisdom.
I have believed for several years now that when white boys sleep with me, a similar process occurs, a kind of imaginative anatomy – a process of sexual dominance through which the alien regions of my Asian, genderqueer body are transformed to match the desires of my white lover. My identity is swept up in a current of narratives about what it means to be an Asian making love with a Caucasian man, an overwhelming legacy of stories about submission and inferiority, demure grace, endless humility, and undying devotion to the Great White Savior who deigns to fuck me. They fall madly in love during a night of passion, during which Kim conceives a child, and the American promises to return for her.
