"You are so beautiful".....NO, I'M NOT!!!!

How long does it take for my boyfriend to do his hair? A lot longer than me and when he is finally finished I dare not touch it.

Korean thought of the day --It's not uncommon for Koreans of the same sex to compliment you on your skin or hair, maybe even stroke them or marvel at them. They're not gay, and they're not hitting on you. They are just curious and uninhibited. Especially in smaller towns and rural areas, where there aren't all that many tourists, Koreans are fascinated by us (Westeners) and the ways we look different from them.

If someone pays you a compliment, refute it. As in Japan, modestly and self-deprecation score politeness points.
