Sex in South Korea

Despite the seeming advancements in terms of technology, the modernization of the society when it comes to sex is still underway. Society, at its very core, is quite traditional and patriarchal.

The males of her family, especially her father and older brother must give consent. This is not to allude to the freedom the girl has but more to do with the prevalent cultural norm. The woman you love is most likely to marry you if she has the blessings of her family.

Being a gentleman and respecting the culture is a sure way to impress the girl's family. It is also vital that you answer every question that they ask. It may sound intrusive or absurd, but keep in mind that they need to be sure that you will take care of their daughter for life. Marriage is a commitment for life to the South Koreans.

South Korean women have great romantic notions. It is best if you have a grand plan for the proposal. Make sure that she loves it, and it is according to her preference. You must make her feel loved and cherished so that she is willing to convince her family to accept you.

But, before going to the family for approval, it is also better to have a discussion with the woman that you envision a future with. In case, she feels that marriage is not on the cards immediately, do not pester her about it. Instead, showcase romantic gestures to show the intensity and sincerity of your love.


Wedding

Numerous rituals and traditions surround weddings in South Korea. The people here are quite nostalgic about maintaining and upholding age-old customs. They are well aware of the importance to continue and preserve the rituals and customs that have been weaved into several aspects of their life.

If you have convinced the girl's family for marriage, you can get ready to experience some of the most amazing and fun rituals that will make your wedding truly memorable. Some of the traditions and rituals surrounding the wedding are given below.

  • Chin-young-rye: Weddings here are generally held in the courtyard of the bride’s house. This ceremony is the meeting of the groom with the family of the bride for the wedding. The groom is led by girukabui, which can be termed as the best man.
  • Jeon-an-rye: In ancient times, the groom used to present wild geese to his mother-in-law. Nowadays, the custom is modified into presenting wooden geese. But, the concept remains the same. The notion of presenting the wild geese is a promise to take care of her daughter as wild geese mate for a lifetime.
  • Gyo-bae-rye: The bowing is a very vital aspect of a Korean wedding. The bride bows six times, and the groom bows two times during the entire wedding ceremony. The bowing is done to signify the vow of the commitment of the couple to each other.
  • Hap-gun-rye: In this tradition, the groom and the bride sip wine from a gourd that has been split into two parts. This is usually presented by the mother of the bride and the two separate halves signify the impending union of the bride and groom as one.
  • Pyebaek: This occurs a few days after the wedding. In this custom, the bride tries to catch the chestnuts and dates that are thrown towards her by the parents of the groom in her wedding skirt. The chestnuts and dates symbolize children, and the number caught by the bride is said to be an indication of the number of future children for the couple.
  • Hanbok: These are the traditional wedding attires that are worn by the couple and their families to Kunbere. The bride wears the color red, and the groom wears a blue one. This is to depict the Confucianism principle of yin and yang.
  • Wedding gift: It is a cultural norm to provide cash as a wedding gift by the guests to the couple. The amount of money that is given depends on the relationship of the guest to the couple.


Family Life

Confucianism is greatly observed in South Korean society. The principles of Confucianism stress the importance of family. As such, family and the relationship with family members are given great importance. It is normal for family members to help each other in times of need. The shameful act of one is also designated as the act of the entire family and is shunned by society.

Hence, individuals maintain and safeguard their reputation to a massive extent. Family life in South Korea is still somewhat patriarchal despite the progressing modernization that the country is constantly witnessing. Here, the males are given more power and are considered to the head of the family. The females are given a more subservient role and are expected to follow the lead of the men.

However, the opportunity to establish good careers and the changing mindset has propelled the women to balance their home and work with a delicate poise. Marriage is given a lot of respect, and thus, divorce is still a major taboo in society. The deeply rooted principles make the couple talk out and compromise rather than parting ways. If you have married a South Korean woman, you can expect her to take care of you and your family diligently. They are great cooks and are never likely to walk out on you.

Children here are raised by integrating certain morals and principles. They are taught to respect elders and show complete obedience. The eldest son of the family is expected to take care of the parents when they become old and ailing. This is also why most of them do not move out of their parent’s house.

South Korea is a great place to settle down and have a family. Great opportunities for employment, the opulent lifestyle, and the overall safety that the country provides make it an ideal place to start a family.
