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."

oo what business does she do?

Rositaz Tuesday, November 29, 2016

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

tough shit

asura_wrath Monday, November 28, 2016

Can she imagine you never been hit by someone before, she is lucky actually

L_catzzz asura_wrath Monday, November 28, 2016've never been hit by anyone at all?

asura_wrath L_catzzz Monday, November 28, 2016

Im a man ...

L_catzzz asura_wrath Tuesday, November 29, 2016

So? Man got hit too~ My second brother got hit all the time. He's the good looking one in the family. I can't remember how many girls already try to approach him. And my cousin's cousin got so many love letters~

goodbyhello asura_wrath Friday, December 2, 2016

Oh my gosh who s your catzz friend. Seems to be a show of. 재수없긴 해~~

asura_wrath L_catzzz Friday, December 2, 2016

@L_catzz Well its not you

L_catzzz asura_wrath Friday, December 2, 2016

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).

L_catzzz goodbyhello Friday, December 2, 2016

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).

L_catzzz goodbyhello Friday, December 2, 2016

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

L_catzzz Friday, December 2, 2016

or yes

goodbyhello L_catzzz Saturday, December 3, 2016

It s dependant of where the personne live too don t you think ? Your mom is brave don t you think... not all women are like that... and its not the problem you re just rude sorry

goodbyhello L_catzzz Saturday, December 3, 2016

Yeah i understand kk

L_catzzz goodbyhello Saturday, December 3, 2016

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?

goodbyhello L_catzzz Saturday, December 3, 2016

Ok I see now. Its a misuderstanding... ok then was a pleasure to talk here with people who are open to discuss ^^

lizrosee Monday, November 28, 2016

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.

k_kid lizrosee Monday, November 28, 2016

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.

skididdlepopper Monday, November 28, 2016

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.

k_kid skididdlepopper Monday, November 28, 2016

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.

themsbabyg skididdlepopper Tuesday, November 29, 2016

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.

skididdlepopper themsbabyg Tuesday, November 29, 2016

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...

themsbabyg skididdlepopper Tuesday, November 29, 2016

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.

skididdlepopper themsbabyg Tuesday, November 29, 2016

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.

skididdlepopper themsbabyg Tuesday, November 29, 2016

glad we had a peaceful discussion though :) haha

themsbabyg skididdlepopper Wednesday, November 30, 2016

Its only our opinions. Which we don't have to agree. Glad we can respect each other.

Oooh she is a very nice person, at least i can tell u that 😊

alexwoojulee Monday, November 28, 2016

i mean, i know all of you are gross white teens that don't actually care for korean ppl nor experience any form of fetishization but she's making a valid point

darlingdella alexwoojulee Monday, November 28, 2016

It didn't say yhe flirting was from white men, unless I missed that.

Xiyima alexwoojulee Monday, November 28, 2016

Search in google korea sexualization of caucasian women. It goes both ways sweetie.

thieves alexwoojulee Monday, November 28, 2016

Do you actually know what a fetish is? Don't toss words around ~
