In Korea, lonely singletons have a quirky dating culture.As is the case anywhere else in the world, meeting new people outside of school or work can be difficult.Obviously, this displays to others that they are a couple.When the time comes, the boy will finally enter the girl's house to meet her parents.Though these meetings hardly produce couples, they're a good way for people to warm up to unfamiliar faces within their departments.
And so, engineering students usually team up with women's university students to go on their MTs together. Both Gwa-tings and MTs were also seen in 'Reply 1994.'Pairing off after a gwa-ting with the ladies from not dance but commerce majors.
MTs are outings hosted by department upperclassmen for underclassmen within the same department.
However, for departments that have an unusually skewed male:female ratio, department heads will coordinate accordingly to even out the numbers.
In this case, they paired off by having both men and women draw names of famous couples.
Here's a video that gets into the specifics on how to meet Korean singles: (Disclaimer: video is a how-to, and in no way guarantees success or failure) What do you guys think?
Does the group blind date idea come as a culture shock? i have been for two years in korea, and i have a lot of friends, but no real dating unfortunately.having something casual is do-able, but starting a relationship is even for koreans in between 20-30 next to impossible.
