Edellyn and JoungHwa Married for: Seoul, South Korea Edellyn: JoungHwa and I met when I accompanied my friend on a date with a Korean boy. She and her date decided to both bring a friend along to make it a double date of sorts, and since my original date bailed, my now-husband came in his place.
I believe in letting life surprise you—and did it ever! I never thought it would work out with JoungHwa because we both had plans prior to meeting. I was leaving for Japan the following week and I figured by the time I returned, he would have already left for the States, where he was planning to study. But he waited for me and we got married after two years.
Koreans are very family-oriented and hold responsibilities to family in high regard. Approval of parents from both sides is very important in a marriage. They also really do put emphasis on respect based on seniority in age. What I love about being married to JoungHwa is he always does his best and puts our family first.
He makes me want to become the best version of me. Plus, he is a very willing Instagram husband!

It takes time to get used to the Korean way of life and thinking. What advice would you give to someone wanting to date a Korean man? Marry or be with a man not because he is Korean but because of who he is. Cultural differences can always be an issue between interracial couples, but I believe personality clashes are more critical than cultural ones.
It is tough to be in an interracial relationship especially here in Korea, so it is vital to be with someone who respects and accepts who you are.
