Lol, if there is anyone here arguing with his feelings, and have a filtered version of events, its you. My long post was just to show (what many other users already pointed out) the existing effects of the hallyu-wave and possibilities to exploit it. When you take all the similar experiences that people have presented, and confirms it with facts you see a pattern. Your respons is to just simply deny it flat out, and say that in reality eeeeryone hates koreans like cab drivers, white expats in the Phils, your white classmates.... yeah, basicly evryone!

Im not denying that tons of people do hate koreans, but that doesnt neglect the fact that the hallyu-wave have had hugh impact on a global scale latly. Neither does it say that koreans are better in anyway, nor that this should discurage other asian guys. Thats your twisted interpretation.

Quote:You might want to look just research a bit about sino Korean relations if you think everyone in China watches k pop and is pro korean. Again your natural korean bias and general patriotic tone no matter how you try to tone it down is quite evident.

I NEVER said that evryone watches kpop or is pro korean in mainland China. I just shared my experiences about mostly positive respons when telling chinese people where I was from. But You wrote:
Quote:The idea that the average filipina or mainlander watches K-Pop is laughable considering they love their Telenovas here and the mainlanders love their Chinese drama shows.

So I just responded with this article [url] http://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-35888537[/url]

Quote:Descendants of the Sun: the Korean military romance sweeping Asia...
Korean television dramas have always been popular across Asia, but the region may have hit peak K-drama fever with military romance Descendants of the Sun....

But its main fan base lies overseas, particularly China, where so far it has been viewed more than 440 million times on popular video-streaming site iQiyi.com. China has strict rules on broadcasting foreign dramas, but relaxed them for Descendants of the Sun, whose production was reportedly partly funded by Chinese investors.

Which you ignorred, since you dont want to argue with facts, but with your feelings and present a filtered/contradicting respons that fits your little reality. Oh, and Im overly patriotic but trying to tone it down? Give me a clear example of that accusation? Or maybe you are just building up a strawman on me for being overly empathising on what a global phenomenon the korean pop culture has become, a fact that you just refuse to aknowledge so you just label me with shit in a desperate attempt to pull me down, which simply is not an argument.
Kind of contradicting since all you counter argument to anything anyone has to say is that in reality koreans sucks and evrybody hates them, and that the chinese do evrything better. You are the one turning the discussion in some ethnic-polarizing way where it seems more like you are an overly prideful chinese, when I as well could release an avalanche on hate people have expressed for them, including in SEA, but Im not going there since I dont have any hate for chinese people and dont want to bring the discussion in that direction you are moving it towards. You keep doing your thing, by projecting your feelings.

Quote:I've traveled thought S.A. and been throughly gawked at also. What's your point?! Do I attribute to my race?! No.

That the h-wave is big there and keeps growing and just fueles the already existing asian fever over there.... which is kind of more relevant then the superficial way they call all asians for 'chinos' (I speak spanish so dont try to fool me that is has as important impact on asian guys over there like the h-wave, lol). The point of lining up examples of being gawked is that, for me, most of them have been because the girls recognize/suspect that im korean, and it still goes on here in the west. Then you match it up with the smilar stories other users have had and there is the pattern again.
Doesnt mean girls cant gawk at you anyway (obviously).
I dont know when you where there, but realize that this is a pretty new thing.

Quote:I have so many personal encounters with anti korean sentiments just as you have many pro korean sentiments.

But you dont know exactly how many encounters with pro korean sentiments I have had, so how can you then now you have had as many anti? Oh I see, you basicly admited that no matter how many empirical examples I will bring up you will just denie it or agrue against it for the sake of arguing against it, got that already.

Quote:Yet they are oblivious and think everyone is hating on them cause their jealous.

Generalizing much? Oh yeah, I forgot you are just trying to bring evrybody down hehe.

Quote:I don't think it's possible for most Koreans to think rationally about anything related to korean relations. It's in your blood to be fiercely patriotic due to many generations of being run over by other countries.

Ok, so when I say that I have used korean pop culture to benefit my game, and you dont belive that, its me whos being irrationally patriotic. Make sence tard
And yeah, Korea has been kicked around many times which have made the people very patriotic. Ifact thats usually common for patriotic countries, just like Russia who have had to deal with vikings, mongols, the swedish empire, napoleon, wwi, the soviet intervention, civil war, experiment with socialism, nazi invasion, the collapse of USSR and so on, hence their strong patriotism today with the knowledge of that independence isnt free and when they as a people have suffered collectivly national solidarity gets stronger, which has its pros and cons. Like you say nothing wrong with that, so why bring it up in a negative way?

Quote:just realize you are a relatively small country with a much smaller influence than you've been brought up in school to believe in.

Hehe you see, you dont know me. I didnt grow up in Korea, nor did I go to school ther, I grew up in the west, and for the most time no one knew anything about Korea at all, and I had basicly no contact with the culture, so im very aware that its a small country that havnt had much influence.
But about five years ago I experienced a great shift in that and have since then taken advantage of it, and still do. That comment is so ridiculous since most koreans have little idea of exactly how popular their stuff has becomed abroad, just like you lol. Infact its more fascinating how such a small and insignificant country could make such a global impact (hehe thats right, my overly patriotic blood just kicked in, changing the perspective of your commentAngel).

Quote:Ask an American what they know about Korea they say psy and pretty much thats it. Korean pop culture is a niche in every sense and will always just be that a niche.
Doubt that. First it would probably be the conflict between North and South, second Samsung, then Taekwondo, then Starcraft, and if anything else yeah maybe Psy. Interesting that you put him first, maybe you start to admit things Banana
Most westerners are quite ignorrant about Asia in general, But yeah, ofcourse its a niche, a globaly growing one which attracts a pretty broad crowd.









Anyway, if anyone bothered to read this post and thought that its so much ’eco’, that being me repeating myselfe over and over again. Well, thats because im pointing out PC’s various gaps, and contradictions he presents in his posts. How he ignorre facts and other ppls experiences, using arguments with no substance and trying to fit in Asia (and the rest of the world) to the reality of his little hi-so chinoy-pinoy bubble in Manila, or wherever he is located.
Asian guys, just know that there are possibilities to exploit this, both in Asia and globaly. No hate needed for that, and we are way of topic now. Over and out!
