The schools I went to their was never any Korean groups. Only in primary/elementary school I had a Korean friend in the same class, not bum chums but class and playtime buddies. Oh I remember there was this chubby Korean girl who kinda was watching out for him, she gotta along with everyone though and the other guy was kinda the same.

I remember my teacher chatting with the same girl and overheard how her uncle the dentist was very stingy and had never given them any free checkups.

That's all I have to say about the Koreans I've encountered. Oh and I remember how strict the guys parents were. They weren't terminator strict just tried to make their kid a hard worker by monitoring his T.V time and stuff. I wish mine were like that.

Koreans are so freakin' cool! I'd hang out with Koreans if I had any in my class....
I have a lot of Japanese though and they mostly hang out for themselves but it's fun talking to them and since we're a very small class we all just kinda talk to each other. But it's kind of natural that you would hand out with those whom you have the most thing in common with. Not weird at all ^^

My high school was very small so all the Korean kids hung out with each other in their own groups (most of them were even in the same class and they traveled to school together), but I was friends with some of them.

I'm Korean.

Although my parents raised in a very "Korean" household, I've never liked Korean groupies for multiple reasons. (Not saying I don't like Koreans since that would be absurd. I just hate that "Groupie" crowd.) I'll state them:

1. Their obnoxious custom to formal and informal speaking. I speak Korean fluently and can even do it on a professional level if needed. What I never enjoyed was the requirement that everyone should speak "Formal" at first acquaintance and so on. In addition, older (I understand if he/she is an adult, but I'm talking about people who are only 1-2 years older than me) members would tell me to use formal words to them while they used informal words to me. Fuck that. I'll speak to you formally when you gain my respect. That shit flies in Korea, not in America buddy.

2. They're not really smart. I've seen only a handful of relatively smart Koreans among those crowds, but they're all conformists. It's pathetic and annoying. The smartest Koreans I've met didn't hang out with groupies - they were making friends wit h people who can hold an intelligent conversation.

3. They'll basically create some sort of informal hierarchy; usually with the richest and most influential on top. Sadly among Koreans, many enjoy flaunting their money. For example: They'll drive Mercedes-Benz, play golf just because it is a "rich sport", buy overly nice things and wear them when simply going to class. I wouldn't mind it so much if they are using the money they worked for and earned, but no - it's daddy's money, not theirs. I'm not impressed.

4. The girls whine/blabber too much and the guys swear too much. I have nothing against swearing, but the sheer number of swear words they can pull out in a single sentence is godly. At this point, the swear word has no impact and it just makes the speaker look uneducated and stupid. The girls, for some reason, have this whiny pitch almost every time they open their mouth. It's obnoxious and I want to fucking slap you, not sympathize with you.

5. They gossip. Way too fucking much.


I've been friends with these "korean groupies" before in High School and early University years. From my perspective, they're not worth the time.


DISCLAIMER: Again, I'm stating behaviors that I personally witnessed and experienced. I don't know if the groupies you've met were different.

I bet 90% of people stopped to read this long post because the first line was "I'm Korean"

It's mostly Filipinos in my grade, but yeah, they MAJORLY STICK TOGETHER. It's like, they always together. Even if they don't know you, if you're Filipino, they'll accept you into their clique. Even though I'm Asian, I don't really like the little group they're always in...

I'm Korean, but at this point I'm pretty westernized.

They do tend to stick together, mostly because they're comfortable practicing their customs and speak the same language.

When I hung out with them, I had to use formal language to older kids (even if they were older by just a year) and such and such, but it wasn't anything bad. Koreans are just big on respect, and I'm totally used to it. It wasn't anything awful. It's just culture.

And people are talking about being shallow and gossip and such, but isn't that characteristic of most high schoolers/college students?

Whatever the case, don't be so quick to judge.
