I’ve been fortunate to have had some great experiences with the girls of both Japan and Korea. I’ve lived in Japan for three years, and in Korea for one. I’ve traveled extensively in both nations, and have had experiences with a wide variety of girls in each. I thought it might be useful to summarize my thoughts on the major differences between the girls of these two very different countries. Some degree of generalization is involved in an article like this, but only by doing so can we hope to overcome the limitations inherent in an article of less than 1500 words. I’ll start with Japan first.
Physical: Short, nice faces, beautiful white skin, and hair color that ranges from black to very light brown. Pubic hair is usually unshaven, for whatever reason. They tend to be very shy about their genitalia, so remember this. I had one girl once confess how terrified she was of a man performing oral sex on her, because of the “shame” of exposing herself in such an intimate way. Hygiene is fantastic. You will not find many of the long-legged, full-figured types common in Korea.
The big advantage of Japanese women, and the trait in which they excel over all others, is politeness. That may not sound like a big deal, but to me it is. Poise and demeanor count for a lot in Japan. Nowhere else have I seen sexiness expressed with such delicacy of movement. The flash of the eyes, the twist of a hand…it all seems to play together in one harmonious package. Even better, Japanese women are not close-minded about dating foreign men. Unlike many countries, politeness here is not seen as weakness. It is seen as an essential part of “getting along” with the group, and you will be rewarded for your good behavior.
Views Of Men
There is little of the overt racism here that a foreign man might encounter in other countries. I never had any bad experiences in Japan with hostility or racism. I’m not saying it doesn’t exist, but that I never experienced it. Foreign men of all nationalities can do very well here, as long as you learn the rules of the game, have some language skill, and are sensitive to your environment.
Japanese girls tend to be vocal in bed. While I enjoy this, some guys do not, or find it tiresome after a while. Common is playing the “little girl” act, exaggerated moans and groans, and things like that. Don’t expect a Japanese girl to take the initiative in the seduction process or in the bedroom. The man is expected to lead, and you must guide the interaction with this in mind.
In Tokyo, I always like the Tokyo Midtown area, which is good for day game. It’s like a small indoor city, with plenty of high-traffic stores and restaurants. And for night game, Roppongi and Roppongi Hills are great for people in town for a short time.
Physical: It’s safe to say that, in the physical department, Korean girls have a decisive edge over Japanese girls. Long legs, muscular asses, and nice facial beauty make for a great combination. Pubic hair is (on average) much less than Japanese girls. Body hair overall seems to be lower, in fact.
Here’s where things get a bit rough. The Korean temperament is very different from the Japanese. Korean girls are more willing to speak their minds, let their intentions be known. And this is a good thing. But the bad news is that they live in a very rigidly hierarchical, status-oriented, racially conscious society. There’s no escaping this fact. I’ve had people tell me that things have changed a lot in the past 15 years, but I’m skeptical. National traits take longer than that to change.
I always got the sense that being with Korean girls in public, especially at night, was viewed as some sort of a big deal. In Japan, nobody cares. In Korea, they do care. And you’ll hear about it when random guys start drinking and talking to you. Koreans are very fixated on race, status, hierarchy, and things like that. Even stranger, they have all these odd requirements for what constitutes facial beauty. You can find girls who are amazingly beautiful but who are told that one imagined defect renders them less than desirable.
Considering this, it’s best in Korea to adapt yourself accordingly. Keep things on a very low profile. Social pressure for them is a big deal. Don’t flaunt your relationships, and don’t discuss them under any circumstances with Korean men. You will find Korean girls outside their native country to be far less inhibited than they are in Korea. They are the world’s worst cockblockers and seem to view your liaisons with their women as a personal insult.
Koreans are not as vocal as Japanese girls in bed, but have better bodies and less body hair, as noted above. Like anything else, a man’s taste in women will vary greatly from one to the other. I didn’t notice any cultural inhibitions or preferences worth mentioning, except that anal sex is not widely popular in either culture (as it is, say, in Brazil).
I always liked Myong-dong, Kangman, and Apgujeong-dong. They’re now expensive, but that’s how it goes. Money opens doors here. Day game is a better value, in my opinion. During the day, if you’re a student or in your 20s, the area around Yonsei University or Ihwa Women’s University are good places to find girls wanting to practice English.
