Maybe others with experience can chime in but general perception of Chinese people amongst Koreans is low class/unfavorable (just the truth)

Don't need to totally lie about it. An ethnic Chinese person can always just say that they're Singaporean or Taiwanese or just say you're a Hongkie from Vancouver. I'm kind of curious what Koreans think of those other nationalities.


It's like being Chinese without the ghetto associations that come attached to people from the mainland.

I totally agree with the rap of Mainland Chinese though. It's one of the primary reasons why I don't spend much time on the mainland.

I understand mainland Chinese people enough to get along with them but to me it's just not the best way to spend the prime years of my life. I definitely experience mainland fatigue after awhile.

Might make a difference but I don't think Korean people differentiate like that. If you are Chinese you are Chinese. I mean they can probably tell if you're dressed ok and kinda cool that you aren't one of the tourists that roll in packs of 20-30 people talking really loud and dipping their feet into the fountain at the Louvre. Same way even though I spent my entire life outside Korea, people see me as Korean/some expect me to be 100% fluent in the language

Here is the general Korean worldview:

Whites > Japan > Korea > other Asians (Chinese, SE Asian) > Indians > Blacks
Didn't include Middle Eastern/Latin because they seem to be outliers in terms of thinking about our relative position to them. I guess these days most people just think IS/terrorism when they think Middle East. FWIW, saw some Latin guys making moves at a Hongdae (student area) bar the other day but it was a foreigner bar/had Latin music playing (playing to niche?)

Was talking with some friends last night. Racism is basically ingrained in us or maybe even genetic, I don't know. And all of us have lived abroad, upper class/"good" education, etc.

But it's really the same anywhere. People put people into boxes. E.g. white people basically looking down on everyone or like (the rich ones) being afraid to go somewhere cuz there were too many blacks or something - written on their face but don't say it ("it looks dangerous")

Side note:

Came across this Insta page today:

Plastic surgery is truly some wild shit. If you an ugly ninja get your ass to Korea ASAP

You could probably find at least a thousand (probably much more) girls that look like that (the after pic)
