While living in Korea with a different culture and standard of beauty, we have received some strange compliments from coworkers, students, and friends, Of course, they are only strange to use because we wouldn’t usually be complimented on these things or in these ways in our home country. We love any compliment, but thought it would be interesting to share our experience with you all. ❤~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I use to work with a girl here in the States who was from Korea. One day out of the blue she said "You're pretty and your face is small, so that makes you prettier". I said thank you, then asked what she meant by small face. She used a CD to explain the small face thing to me. LOL

I’ve commented before that I work with Asians lmao, and I swear the whole compliment thing, they’re so so literal! 😂😂 like they will literally tell you the truth lol! I would get things like “that lipstick makes you look like an old lady” , or “that color shirt makes you look dark” things like that? Lol

One weird compliment I got was from my best friend. It was my most recent profile picture on Insta and one day we were just messaging each other and she was like "did I ever tell you that u look very Asian, like Asian Asian" and I was sitting there reading the message over and over again for like five minutes.

Note - I'm am asian but not asian asian (srry if that sounds offensive). I'm actually from pakistan.
Lol we give each other weird compliment all the time but this one I though was kinda different

The strangest compliment I've gotten was from 2 ajummas on the subway, who told me I had such nice, pretty white (and "Milky") skin. I know they put a lot of emphasis on being lighter here, but it was still just... ok??? thanks??

&& the chopsticks thing is so true! My CTs tell me continually that I use them better than them. lol And the "foreigners can't eat spicy food" thing is wild - b/c I love spicy food and I agree that a lot of Korean dishes aren't spicy!

When I came to America I told a cousin I never knew before that they have small face they got so mad at me lol

This video was sooo relatable haha
My students have told me i look like a koala but the best "compliment" i have received is a different tale.
Student- Teacher do you know Pinocchio?
Me-...yes haha
Student- how many lies did you tell to get your nose that big?
Me-...just one *busts out laughing because it was so clever*
Student-Teacher why do you have a big nose?
Me- to smell.-.-

A Korean woman owns the vegetable stand near my house and she is always surprised by the fact that I buy kimchi from her so frequently but I need it beside all of my meals. I can't live without it lmao (I live in Brooklyn) and she's always so happy when I greet her/speak in the little Korean I know.

"Your English is so good!" "Thank you..I'm from New York..?" 😂.....And I am always impressed by any people who are not Korean and eat Kimchi so well 😝
Ren Curry
Hahah I love this so much because there is so much truth lol. That chopstick one...lol.
I also prefer Korean chopsticks. I think they are the best to use.

We got real with this and listed out 7 signs that show you might be a Koreaboo! Of course, being a Koreaboo is a complicated matter, and if you are just a chill kpop fan or enjoy Kdramas or even study Korea, that doesn't make you a Koreaboo automatically. We just want to shine light on the fact that Korea is more than just hot idols and good food! Korea is an interesting country with rich history and culture, and it deserves to be loved as such.
