Dating as an institution is a relatively recent phenomenon which has mainly emerged in the last few centuries.
From the standpoint of anthropology and sociology, dating is linked with other institutions such as marriage and the family which have also been changing rapidly and which have been subject to many forces, including advances in technology and medicine.
They also look for partners who have higher status and connections rather than charm and personality.
Yes you can argue that Westerners do the same but how they do it is radically different! Korean men and women grow up believing that they can only date in their social circles.
Let's make sure you make the most of your dates and make it as stress-free as possible.
In any case most of Korea’s dating culture involves introductions.I've lived in Asia for more than seven years and coached guys for five.This is my take - Get ready to find out what makes dating in Asia different.These people will have dates on a regular basis, and they may or may not be having sexual relations.This period of courtship is sometimes seen as a precursor to engagement or marriage.
