Do real white women are called ‘ white horses ‘ in Korea?


Hello. This is Donggun. Today I’m going to tell you something shocking. There are cases where foreign women ask. Real Korean men … Do they call Western women as white horse? I was really embarrassed. I’m not using words. My friends don’t use it either. But it is easy to see on the Internet. So I made this video to explain it without any misunderstanding. Let me explain one by one from now on. For the time being The word white horse is slang for white women. That’s not a good word. When having sex in Korea, Korean used the word ” riding horse. ” when they were having sex with a white woman, they said, ‘ Mounted with a white woman ‘. and people start to say ‘I rode a white horse.’ Usually, this means having sex with a white woman. It was illegal to buy sex in Korea even in the early 2000s. But the sex trade was secretly carried out. There was a case in which white women came to Korea for prostitution in Eastern European countries such as Ukraine and Kazakhstan. So if there were any men who had gone on sex with white women, They’re not really speaking. But they said ‘I rode a white horse.’ No one’s using this word right now. But men who like to pick on women in clubs are using this word It is used by men who like to be one-night stands. Ordinary Korean men. More than 90 percent don’t use this word. So you can only hear this in places where there are many clubs and bars. But most Korean men never use these words. Today, white people are often referred to as white horses. But it’s not a real word. It is used on the Internet. Especially, it is used for fun by teenagers and twenties. That’s all I know. And I searched the Internet. Again, there was no real information on the Internet, but there was interesting information. I’ll let you know. In fact, it is said on the Internet that this word came from Japan. Because there is experience that Korea was occupied and ruled by Japan. In Korea, we speak Japanese or there are many Japanese culture. When Japan occupied Indonesia They caught Dutch women. And they forced women to ‘Japanese military sexual slavery’ Just then It is because Western women and Asian women were similar in physique or Asian men were small. Japanese soldiers treat women bigger than themselves as if they were riding horses. they used the word white horse from this time This is what I found on the Internet. Japan actually brings women from many countries. To make them as Japanese military sexual slavery They forced the sale of the sex. Among them, the biggest victims are Korean women. There are Chinese women. Many women are victims And one of them was a white woman. And they called the white women white horse Again, Korean men in general never use these words. Have I heard this word once in 30 years? or twice? Even when searching on the Internet A lot of korean people have expressed hatred for this. Of course foreigners were not happy to hear, Koreans are also upset when they hear this. So far, I am Donggun Please let me know if you have any questions! Thank you so much from Donggun

    I have been to Korea 3 times now and have heard the phrase "Riding the White Horse" several times. The ages of men that said it were from their 20's to their 50's. So it is still said and have been asked if I knew what that meant, it is still out there and being used. It is sad to say.

    So 10% of Korean men use this nasty metaphores to describe White Women.
    I will tell those men that #1 I'm not a horse to be mounted.
    # 2 who do they think they are disrespecting if they have sex with a White lady they say they mounted her?
    What They are actually saying is that they had sex with an animal which makes them sound stupid, and only other horses mainly Male horses, or jackasses can mount a Filly…
    If he can reach her that is…. So I believe I have set that record straight for those men who would be so brass as to say something like this.
    Moreover Japanese Men are in this with Korea since they started it that is…

    In fairy tales of western cultures a white horse represents something pure of soul or heart, of the highest beauty, strong, courageous, free, intelligent, and ethereal. Often second only to a mythical unicorn. I'm a little disturbed a "white horse" became a slang with such a dark and dehumanizing meaning. But I'm quite relieved to here most Korean men don't use the word, and find it a bad and shameful thing to say. In America, I would say that most men 50 years old and younger use a lot of demeaning language, (words, phrases, etc) toward women that demean them, dehumanize them, or strip away their dignity especially in terms of sexuality. It's awful. It's comforting to think that in Korea, most of the men may have much more honorable and caring thoughts and language toward women. Maybe it's not like that in other countries, but it sounds like (from what you said) that Korean is more kind and honorable to women. Maybe you will make a video on if that is true? Thank you for this video, it is very informative and respectfully done. Thank you again.

    In my experience, many Korean men won't say 백마 directly, but they will say things like "oh, I never did it with a foreigner." Or "oh I want to sleep with a foreigner". I've been in Korea for 5 years, and no one has ever said 백마 directly to me, but their actions have the same meaning since they only want to meet foreign women for sex. I think it's important that these stereotypes are addressed directly. The meaning of "open minded" is different between western and Korean culture as well. When we say open minded in the US we mean open to new ideas and experiences. But in Korea "open minded" seems to have the meaning of having an open relationship or being open sexually.

    If you really do rarely hear this, it is because you are man and you choose your friends well. As a white woman who has lived in Korea for over 8 years with a very good listening comprehension of Korean language, I can inform you otherwise. I hear it at least once a month being used to refer to me. More often if I run into a lot of big groups of men, especially teens or men under age 30. You shouldn't assume that all Korean people are as well mannered as you, because this country has a long~ way to go in terms of its treatment of foreign women.

    Сколько в других странах проституток, но никто не тыкает им этим постоянно. Люди любят выбрать объект и заклеймить и преувеличить, даже когда все не так, то не очистишься от этого клейма. Таиланд вообще всех переплюнул, но почему-то я не слышу в разных видео или комментами, чтобы Таиланд за это кто-то постоянно упрекал. Во все странах это есть, и в Европейских и в Восточных, которых это часто все делается скрытно

    Every country will have those men and women who do not respect one another or who treat sex too lightly. Most people grow out of it. Thus, one is also able to find good men and women in every country if one can look past the immature or terrible ones.

    Их культура, исскуство и т/п.. Вызывают огромный положительный интерес.

    Вот сейчас, некоторая часть европейцев интересуются азиатской культурой, они мечтают поехать туда, чтобы познакомиться ближе с тем, что им не равнодушно..Интересно… Стоит только задуматься, "если отношение азиатов, не блещет такими же теплыми чувствами к иностранцам? (Особенно европейцам).."

    Не очень приятно, но в любой стране есть расисты и тому подобные..

    Thanks for the explanation. It was good to hear the history behind the phrase, as well as your opinion and point of view. However, I do think it is more common in today's slang than you think unfortunately. I say this bc I have lived in Korea a few years now, and all my Korean friends know this phrase. As more foreigners are coming to Korea, more Korean men are curious about westerners. If u ask most men they always seem to say ,"I'd like to try dating a foreigner." But, let's be honest, dating just means sex to them. Most men would never consider marrying a foreigner bc of parental opinions. So, it's still a problem that most Korean men see women as objects. Korea is still a very patriarchal country with old fashioned views.

    Foreign woman have to aware most of korean man. Many koreans can't be apart from internet culture, especially teenage~twenties. So it's just their natural inner side as it is. Of course They don't use this word in front of their parents or teacher. But It's not that uncommon word in man's society. When they talk about their new white girl friend, she could be called as white horse. Don't have fantasy on korean man. They are not kpop idol.

    How about "Russian saram imnida?" That I heard about more often while in Korea and I think is worse. And I've heard that horse term is used in SE Asia too, like Thailand and Laos.

Внешне вообще не отличишь. Во всех странах были, есть и будут легкодоступные девушки. Даже в той самой Корее есть такие. Это зависит не от расы и не от национальности, а от личного выбора каждого

    일본어를 사용하거나 일본 문화가 굉장히 많이 들어있다고 생각안하네요
    일본어는 특정 분야 아니면 대부분 사용안하는 수준 같습니다
    2천년대 초반에도 한국에선 성관계 자체가 불법이라니 무슨 성관계가 불법입니까?
    성매매가 불법인거죠
    성관계가 불법이면 애 못낳아서 나라 멸망합니다
    성관계가 불법인 나라는 전 세계 어떤 나라도 없습니다
    가야인이 일본을 건국한 시조고 백제인 신라인들이 일본의 지배층이 된걸로 알며 백제 가야 신라 고구려가 일본에 많은 기술 문화 문명을 전수해줬습니다
    일본어의 뿌리가 백제어라는 말도 있습니다 일본에서 한국문화가 한국의 일본 문화보다 훨씬 많이 들어있다고 생각하네요

    I think not many Japanese language and culture in Korea.
    There is a rumor that Korea's ancient country founded Japan and Korea's ancient country became the ruling class of Japan.
    Korea's ancient kingdoms taught Japan the art of culture and civilization.
    There is a theory that the roots of Japanese language are the ancient Korean nation, Baek je language.
    There will be more Korean culture in Japan than Japanese culture in Korea.

    Благодарю вас за честность. Слышала и про выражение "белая лошадь", и про японские дома "для утешения", но не знала, что в этот Ад попадали ещё и европейки, думала, что это коснулось в основном азиатских женщин: кореянок, китаянок… Неприятно, что бедным женщинам, не важно какой расы или национальности, пришлось проходить через такие издевательства.

    Если говорить о сегодняшнем дне, то не осуждаю женщин (и мужчин), которые решили себе зарабатывать на жизнь подобным образом: их тело – их дело, судить по ним о целом народе не следует. Да и вообще, мужчина, пользующийся услугами проститутки, сам ничем не лучше неё.

    Не знаю, как девушки из США и ЕС, но девушки из России (мужчины наши не так милые, как мы, ибо настороже)), обычно приветливы к иностранцам, потому что у нас просто не принято плохо относиться к гостям, да и всегда интересно пообщаться (именно пообщаться, не больше) с представителем другой культуры, узнать что-то новое, посмотреть на Мир другими глазами. Есть конечно такие дамы, которые намеренно хотят выйти замуж за иностранца и уехать из страны, но на самом деле большинство наших женщин имеют отношения и семьи с представителями своего народа. У нас даже на этот счёт шутливое выражение есть:

    – Эй, ты что, встречаешься с иностранцем?

    – Нет, я поддерживаю отечественного производителя. )

    seems like it would be difficult to date a Korean person as a foreigner because you often hear them say that their parents wouldn't allow them to marry only to to date you (sleep with you but not seriously) which is also terrible…..

    Cute guy talks about really serious stuff. This actually explains a lot of what I hear in interviews when people ask Korean men about dating foreigners and they constantly use "open-minded" and say "Ukraine"… not necessarily because of this term, but because of the history.

    That being said, I applaud you for being open about this information and it's good for anyone who plans to travel to Korea to know that there are douchbags in every country – no matter if it's your country or Korea. Be safe when traveling.

    I was living in Korea. I can say that there is some issue with being with a Korean girl. Like once i had lunch with a female colleague because we had to talk about something related to work and we didn’t have free time during the day.

    Someone insulted her for being with a foreign man.

    Also i could recognise once that it was a big thing to get laid by a foreign girl.
    As long as she wanted it it is also totally fine. ( she can do what she wants)

    Or some clubs don’t let foreign male in.
    The only thing I can say is stand above it.

    Plus male from all over the world have some special vocabulary and are showing off their stories with girls.

    That is nothing particularly Korean.

    Like: omg there was this super hot Latina !!!!
    I just had a Japanese she was exactly like in a porn!!!

    I mean this happens anywhere.

    The difference between a girl and a boy is bigger than between a korean and a european.

    So don’t get angry about stuff like that.
    Also 90% as he said don’t even think so much about that.

    Something what would equal just using Asian person for sex purposes..
    unfortunately happens too.
    But then there are people who see nothing wrong with that.
    I beg to differ, to me someone who has to buy someone for sex, or hopes get someone only for sex is not my cup of tea.. 🤢
    Such people have to date each other. For that one night. 🙄
    rather than trying to get decent person to think they are interested in them. 😷
