ack, thats easy. im asian myself. in asia they just have a lot of respect for their elders (eg, bowing, serving.) there always top notch, so whatever the age, you have to obey you're elders. if you don't they'll hit you on the head and stuff like that. it's not all that fun, but it sure teaches you how strong old people can be. just for extra, usually, asian familys have grandparents, parents, children, and sometimes aunts and uncles in their family. i forget what that's called. when you get to be an adult, you don't leave the home, you stay and take care of your parents. unless you're a girl that gets married, but that's different. you move into your husband's home, unless its a drama thing where the parents disagree against your marriage and stuff. but you have to get your parent's consent to get married. i don't think they have to sign anything, but its just respect. or it culd be because im only 13 and i don't know about marriage yet.

coupling same sex actors...am i right?
why do koreans like to hit each others head? bout their accent---i just can't get it?
i'm curious bout korean artists---why are they old?---i mean is there some age policy for celebrities in
Korea? or do they have to get through some intense training before they can formally come up to
showbiz?




Anyone who's curious?....also please feel free to answer my curiosity, and also, put up your own, as well!


Yeah. I wonder why most korean artists are old.

I've not seen one korean actor (yet) that was in his early EARLY EARLY 20's.


It's not true that all Korean actor are old, there are many of them that are still in early 20's

like Jang Geun Suk (21)


but most of the young man in entertainment industry are in music industry instead of film




wow!
i really like this guy!
yup!
young enough!

well, because of the vowels -> high tone, the korean language is kind of loud and noisy.

I compared it with german / vietnamese and english / french...

KOREAN - Maybe hitting that hard is normal for them, coz I have korean friends(older and younger age) when they hit or just tap someone its really big time and when the kids play they hit one another(its their game).

Yes I know that all korean actors aren't old.

That's why i stated "most korean artists" meaning i stated not all of all korean artists are old.

And is the reason of why there aren't many young korean actors because they are all in the music industry, as you said?

asian kids are raised to respect their parents a lot. And part of Buddhism/Confusionism is to respect ones' parents - so when you go against your elders, it means that you are disrespecting them. That's why no matter how old they are - they have a sense of filial duty to their elders - be in parents or grandparents. ie: can't really go against their wishes, or answer back, raise their voices to their parents, etc. Its something that is unique to Asian culture - because western kids are definitely not raised this way.

Why do japanese enjoy taking baths together in a big group that cant understand

Also why do they soap up outside the tub wash off and then get in the tub


It's a cultural thing. They are used to it. The soap thing outside the tub, just means that you don't get the soapy/dirt into the clean tub that you are supposed to be soaking in.
