I thought it more a fantasy of men who craved unequal power relations with their girlfriends than a reality.
Korean traditional fairy tale for children (in English) -When: Sept.2nd, @- -Where: Korean Cultural Centre (150 Elgin) -R. While couples in North America are much more “chill” and like to take things slow, my observation of Korean couples is that they love going all out and externally celebrating their togetherness.
I know I certainly worry a lot about dating in Korean dramas!
you know things will be different, but just how different will they be?
We acknowledged our 100 days, which is obviously quite early in a relationship, but we didn’t do anything very special.
I have seen Korean girls demand a lot just for 100 days though- like flowers and a cake and a gift and dinner. So by the time our 300 days anniversary came around it wasn’t something I was thinking about so I felt bad when my husband (then boyfriend) surprised me with red roses and a cake. We haven’t celebrated another “day anniversaries” since then and I don’t pay much attention to all the other, often commercial, “special days” in Korea.
There’s just so much to do and experience if you’re a couple, or at least going on dates, and that’s why everyone is always looking for someone!
I see myself as a lively, bright and sociable girl.The beautiful female protagonist is independent and savvy at her office, but in front of a guy she likes, she’s one step behind, submissive and gentle.She should be resilient but needs to be rescued when hardship arises. I could concede that independent and dependent tendencies might coexist in a person, certainly, but often they don’t go together.This is 100 days of dating, not marriage.100 days is significant in Korea culture.For example, 100 days after a baby is born is celebrated. I think this is a more modern thing that has been influenced by romance in media.
