Yeah, Koreans are known for that ****. Especially with their sons. Their mothers will only "allow" them to marry Korean women. I dont think its nearly as big of an issue with the Korean daughters. For some reason its more acceptable for their daughters to date a foreigner but not their sons. Chinese on the other hand dont care as much.
