    For me No... I mean it would be nice getting to see my bias group more often but ironically South Korea is one of the last places where I would want to permanently live at. I definitely want to TRAVEL to South Korea since it is such a beautiful Country but definitely wouldn't permanently reside there.

    No. moving to a country just because you like kpop is stupid. That's like someone moving to America just because you like Hollywood. You'll have to learn the language, Culture, get a job and even then it won't be easy. Imma just stay my ass in England where I belong, and pray for nct or bts to find out England exists

    I've thought about teaching English there when I graduate so in a way I guess yes.
    Tbh, I've never really been interested in going even with my kpop obsession but my cousin went for two weeks and she couldn't stop talking about the food and sadly that is what warmed me up to the idea :sweatr:

    Probably not.
    I can see myself moving there for a year or two, but I'm not the type to force myself into an uncomfortable situation. I don't think my interest weighs enough to have to gel myself into a society I probably wouldn't even be welcomed into.

    Nah, but I wouldnt mind studying/working there for a fixed amt of time.
    Emigrating to another country is a stress i wish to avoid in this life. Aint nobody got time for all those paperwork/requirements
    My home country is my preferred homebase. Would miss the food too darn much :loverr3:

    I would love to travel there or even study there for one semester, but the only way I would live in South Korea permanently is if I got married to a Korean and my future husband would not want to live in the USA, and even then it would be extremely difficult, because that means I would be separated from my family.

    No.
    I would totally make an extended visit!
    I love exploring other cultures and find the Korean culture endearing in many ways but I wouldn't want to live there.
    There aren't a lot of things for non-Korean foreigners to do there other than teach English (which I have zero interest in doing).
    Not to mention the xenophobia that often comes with being a mostly homogenous nation. (I doubt Korea is as bad a Japan though.)
    Koreans take pride in foreigners liking Korea, but that doesn't necessarily mean that Koreans like foreigners (especially the older generation).
    The only way that I would live there is if I married a Korean (or had some other sort of divine life intervention occur). No doubt it would still be difficult, but then I would consider it worth it.

    I like this very much, just from this sentence alone. Lol. Anyone who would move for this reason alone is either a young fan girl/boy or plain dumb honestly. Aside from what you've stated already, cultural difference is huge alone. While there are racist people everywhere, Koreans not only have that stigma against black people, but on skin color alone so unless you have the complexion of a dead body, good luck. It's also difficult for foreigners to thrive and do well in traditional/conservative countries like Korea and Japan.

    @LongAssRider; I am biracial and I've lived in Korea periodically surmounting to 6 months to 3 months. I love it there, if you do not want to mix with Korean there is a wide conglomerate of international people living there.
