It’s all about their tradition, their custom of being tender, sentimental, soft-spoken and polite.
They like to dress in colourful clothes and wear just a touch of make-up, flaunting their sexy bodies as they pirouette along the sidewalk.
A great thing about Korean women is their polite manner, and because they tend not to overeat they are mostly slim and have beautiful blemish-free skin.
And to the north, North Korea for the most part borders China, and for a distance of perhaps only 15 kilometres it borders Russia.
The capital of North Korea is Pyongyang, and that of South Korea is Seoul, a city of about 10 million as compared to about 3 million in Pyongyang.
Men are seen as the providers, the people who go out and work and bring home a salary.
Times are changing, though, and Korean girls take great care to appear tidy and feminine.
Korea, as a whole, was annexed and under the colonial administration of Japan from 1910 to 1945, and during peaceful demonstrations against the Japanese in 1919, more than 7,000 Koreans were killed by the occupying security forces.
In the Second World War, between 19, thousands of Koreans were forced into Japan’s Imperial Army and nearly quarter-of-a-million women and girls were used by the Japanese military as ‘Comfort Women’, a brutality which was not officially admitted to by the Japanese until 1993.
Often working long hours as clerks or secretaries in banks, travel agencies and the offices of big businesses, also as labourers in factories concerned with the production of electronic equipment, textiles and clothes, etc., the women and girls of this country do not enjoy financial equality, and South Korea is the worst ranked country in this respect.
However, things have progressed from the 1940s, when women had little or no formal education and were traditionally confined to the home.
The Communist North Korea has banned religion altogether and is closed to people either wanting to leave or enter the country.
