[New Project!] Ask A Korean!

Hey guys :)

I brought up my recent post about drinking in K-entertainment with some of my native Korean friends, and they had some really interesting feedback.

That got me thinking -

I know that many of us on Vingle are Korean or Korean American, but we're also very into the Kpop world. Why not ask some K-entertainment related questions to some Koreans that aren't really "in the know" when it comes to the Kpop fandom?
For example, when I talked about drinking and its affect on the audience - my friends said that they actually never thought that was weird. It's just how TV has always been so they don't really think its a problem.
Another interesting point: In Korea, more conservative people think it isn't feminine to share your emotions freely. For example, a girl shouldn't confess her love openly and confidently (that's more of a manly thing) That's why in dramas or in advertisements, you see girls getting drunk and speaking their mind because when you're drunk its okay and a little "cute" to slip up and say things like "I love you."

So, if you have any Korean cultural questions or questions about their views on the K-entertainment industry, ASK AWAY!

I'll get a few of my friends' opinions and post them, and then our Korean Vinglers can also chime in!*

Leave some ideas in the comments and I'll pick a few to start off!

Or just comment below if you're interested :D

*Their opinions only represent a smaaaaaall percentage of Koreans, just like if you asked 3 Americans for their opinion on a huge issue so please keep this in mind :)

I'm sure it probably depends on the person, but what is the difference between a Korean guy being a gentleman, and Korean guy being flirty?
