My last ex was a kpopper. He was half-Canadian, half-Chinese, but was obsessed with Korean pop culture. He looked the part, too, and got stopped on the street all the time by people asking him if he was some kind of kpop idol. Hence his giant, overinflated ego.
Anywho. I'm Korean-born, though I've never been into all that kpop culture (I was mostly raised on music by dead white guys from the 17th century lol), but apparently I have the "ideal Korean looks" that's all the rage in Asia right now. I don't know, I get a lot of superficial comments from Koreans and non-Koreans alike, and it's bothering me more than ever. Like, who cares. What about my personality?
I get the feeling that the reason that my ex was so attached to me was simply because of the fact that I'm Korean and I fit into his ideal stereotype. Some of the guys who hit on me nowadays (mostly the ones obsessed with kpop) act like they hit the jackpot when they find out I'm Korean and not just some other Asian ethnicity. I mean, come on, guys. Would you not come on so hard if I told you that I was Japanese, instead? Does where I come from really matter that much?

It's possible. This is the negative side to this new wave of people who entitledly proclaim and persist their 'racial preferences'. Doesn't it feel incredibly depthless?
I experience the same exact thing! -_- Guys constantly come on very hard to me when they find out how mixed I am and act like they've "hit the jackpot", praising me over physical features, making disgustingly shallow comments like "You've got the best traits of every race". *eye roll* It's such a turn off.1
