Hwang Bo says she gets hit on by non-Koreans a lot to the point of annoyance

Hwang Bo talked about getting hit on while traveling abroad. 


On the November 28 airing of SBS PowerFM 'Old School,' singer/entertainer Hwang Bo made a guest appearance to talk about what she has been up to lately. 


Hwang Bo shared, "I was busy running my business and traveling...Until recently, I went abroad for work, never to play. Work traveling and leisure travel are completely different, so I traveled alone like I had wanted to." 

When the DJ asked, "You must have gotten hit on a lot while you were traveling abroad," Hwang Bo answered, "It happens a lot, so it's annoying. It's not because I'm pretty, but because I am a foreigner. They are curious." 

Hwang Bo added, "It's really cheesy. They run into me and say sorry and then ask me where I am from. I guess I don't look very Korean, so they ask me where I came from."

    It happens everywhere.. I'm foreigner student in korea and it is the same.. difference is that korean guys only talk to girls they are interested in (mostly) soo it can be even more annoying

    Ppl who just heard of her name for the first time through this article are already judging her... it's sad that you guys judge ppl so quickly. anyone reading this article should be able to catch that there is a cultural difference she didn't quite pick up on, and this is just one part of the whole talk. those who have seen her during her xman and wgm days know she is the most genuine person with the kindest heart. she spent many years away from the entertainment and did a bunch of charity work. i advise you guys to not judge ppl so quickly like that

    Actually, since you use the context of gender, I'm a female btw. So....yeah. I've been hit too (just not as much as my brother tho. He got hit way too much).

    Lol. No, really, I'm just asking an honest question to the OP. Just wondering btw. But the answer that I got is he using gender as an excuse for not getting hit at all, which I'm not too agreeable with. Even my dad got hit by my mom (she's the one who asked for his cellphone number & call him first).

    Well, if he just answered "no", I would have just responded back "oh okay" without knowing the op gender regardless :)

    Perhaps. And yeah, my mom is really brave. No doubt of that. She also keeps pushing me to be the one that make a move first too. Haha. Maybe I just word my sentence wrong. ESL here. So it came off as rude. I just want to point out that male can got hit too. That's all. And my initial intention of asking that question to the OP is because I'm just curious whether the statement that he made came from his own experience or that he just gave a general statement, like you know when these idols said they are fat and only eat an apple or a banana a day, some people would say "at least they can have food to eat" (it's not like those people does not have any food to eat but just rather making a general statement that about how those idols should appreciate what they have). So an answer of yes or no should be suffice to confirm my curiosity. You know what I mean?

    I get why she's upset. As an Asian American, I've been hit on before too just because I'm Asian and there are people who love to fetishsize/sexualize us. It can be really disgusting and upsetting to wonder if anyone ever sees past your race or even wants to get to know the real you.

    I know so many (Asian) friends that been in your shoes. They would always get hit on by everyone just for being Asian, usually by white guys most of the time.

    asking what country you're from isn't flirting >.> wth >.> heck a lot of people can't tell most Asians apart so there's no harm in asking- and no need to freak out about it either.. Idk who this lady is but she doesn't seem like a nice person here.

    They were using that as an excuse to break the ice and flirt with her. It's like the most basic thing guys do. And she's a former idol from the group called Chakra and she's really nice. She was one of the frequent members on X-Man.

    This is just cultural differences. In the west flirting, hitting is nothing. But to Asian some feels direspect esp if there's sexual innuendos in the move.

    I get what you're saying- when people "flirt" with me it feels disrespectful and even scary sometimes. But asking someone their nationality might not be flirting. That's all...

    I get what you meant too. But who knows maybe the way the guy "ran to her or the way he looked at her while asking that bothers her.

    yea but she's saying that this has happened so much to her to the extent that she's annoyed...not just on one occasion. She almost saying," most of the foreign men i encounter look at me with flirtatious eyes-they're annoying." I don't wanna continue having this conversation because i might seem like a bad person. I've also lost interest in this article.
