Want to know, “what do Korean guys find attractive in a woman?”
It’s important to remember that every guy is unique and has their own preferences of what they find attractive in a woman, regardless of their background.
That said, if you want to attract a Korean guy, here are some of the characteristics they would likely be looking for:
10 Things Korean Guys Find Attractive in A Woman
1. Physical Attractiveness (To Them)
What a man finds physically attractive is going to vary from man to man.
However, Korean guys typically like long hair, big bright eyes, and a woman that takes care of herself physically.
Confidence is one of the most attractive attributes someone can have, no matter what the culture.
It’s not something you can change overnight, but if you have good confidence, self-esteem, and a positive attitude, Korean guys will likely find that attractive.
Culturally, Korean men value intelligence and might find a woman who is intelligent, well-educated, and able to challenge him intellectually to be more attractive.
You don’t have to have a high IQ! Being able to carry on a good conversation and having knowledge about different topics can be attractive to Korean guys.
4. Kindness and Compassion
I’m sure you’ll also agree that being kind and compassionate is attractive! It’s no different for Korean men.
They want someone who will be kind, understanding, and supportive in a relationship and show them the kind of attention they want to give to someone special.
5. Sense of Humor
A sense of humor can be attractive to anyone, and some Korean men will certainly find a woman who is funny and can make them laugh to be more attractive.
Korean humor tends to be a bit different than Western humor, so it’s also important to be aware of cultural differences too.
6. A Warm and Friendly Personality
A warm and friendly personality is always going to go a long way and help you attract someone.
Korean guys will likely find a woman with a good attitude, who is open-minded, and lighthearted to be attractive characteristics.
7. A Positive Attitude
A positive attitude is attractive to most guys and in most cultures, and it’s known that Korean men find a woman who is optimistic and upbeat to be more attractive.
Again, this isn’t something you can necessarily control but it’s certainly something to think about if you’re trying to attract a Korean guy.
8. A Sense of Style
Generally speaking, Korean men find a woman who has a sense of style and takes care of her appearance attractive.
For Korean men, this means a woman who is fashionable and keeps up with trends, as well as someone who isn’t afraid to try different looks.
Korean guys – and most guys – find a woman who is independent and self-sufficient to be more attractive.
Sure, it can also be intimidating at first, but once he gets to know you better, a Korean guy will appreciate your independence and ability to make decisions without him.
10. Shared Interests and Values
Having shared interests and values can be attractive to anyone, and it’s one of the most important factors for Korean men.
It’s important to remember that not everyone has exactly the same interests or values, but having a few common ones with him could help bring the two of you closer.
It certainly gives you something to talk about, and it’s going to help you build a stronger connection.
What Is Considered Flirting to A Korean Guy?
In Korean culture, flirting typically involves certain behaviors and actions that demonstrate you’re interested in them.
Not too dissimilar to any culture, of course!
Some examples of flirting behaviors that might be considered flirting to a Korean guy include:
Complimenting someone on their appearance or attributes
- Making prolonged eye contact with them and backing up a gaze with a smile
- Touching them or physically being close
- Using playful or teasing language and saying things that are a little seductive!
- Laughing at his jokes or being overly positive around them and about them
- Asking personal questions and trying to get to know them better on a personal level
I will say this again; it’s important to remember that every individual is different and will respond to different flirting signals.
I can’t tell you exactly what’s going to appeal to a particular Korean guy if there is someone, in particular, you have your eye on.
But if you check off a number of the points on this list and like a Korean guy, you’ll regret it if you don’t do something to make it clear to him that you like him.
At the end of the day, the most important thing is that you be yourself and make sure he knows that you find him attractive.
It’s then up to him whether or not he wants to pursue anything with you, but you’ll never know if you don’t take the initiative to let him know you’re interested first!
