"Men give their entire salary to their wives": 10 secrets of a happy life in Korea – about cosmetics, food and attitude towards Russians23.06.2022
I moved with my three-year-old daughter from another man. And, of course, I was worried about how we would be received. Behind one official marriage and one unofficial. By Korean standards, if there is at least one divorce, this is already a stigma, because a person has not passed the most important test of life – in the family. But we were accepted as family.
What are Korean men like?
On the one hand, there is little romance in them, but this can be fixed if we explain how it is customary in Russian culture to take care of ladies. On the other hand, in Korea, family comes first. The worst thing for a man is to lose his job, because according to statistics, he is the breadwinner. There are not many women working after childbirth in the country.
Hanging out with friends is an exceptional rarity. However, in Korean companies, there is a “hae chig” – this is when the boss decides that today is the time to go out for a drink with colleagues. Failure to do so can threaten the loss of respect in the team. In other words, Korea has its own system of hierarchy, where the elder in age or position in society is always right, to refuse him is to show great disrespect.
