Dear Korea #099 - Just a Teeny Bit Envious


I would like to start by saying that not all of the guys I know are creepers that spend their time checking out random women on the street. Heck, as far as I know, most of them are perfect gentlemen. Either that or they’ve mastered the art of controlling their peripheral vision.

Anyways, if there’s one thing I’ve noticed while living in Korea, it’s that the women here are stupid gorgeous. Not everyone agrees, and that’s totally fine (different strokes). While I’m completely aware that this may have something to do with all the plastic surgery that exists here, that doesn’t change the fact that there is a lot of eye candy in this country. I personally think some of it may have to do with the fact that they put a lot of work into looking good before stepping out into the public (though this sometimes leads to destructive behavior). Compared to lazier folks like me (I don’t remember the last time I got a haircut..), it makes sense that the hard working ladies here look so much prettier.

That being said, I’m feeling the need to clarify that how a woman looks does not define her worth, and that everyone is beautiful in their own way. I feel silly for thinking that I have to include this disclaimer, as it’s something I feel is super obvious, but better safe than sorry…right?
