Here are what Korean look for in a life partner

One of the reason Koreans are disillusioned with marriage is because of the high standards they have for one another. Here is a list of what Koreans expect in a partner:


Males prefer their bride to be 163.4cm (5'4) and earn a salary of est $40,000 after taxes. Also they would like the female to have close to $200K in assets and be 2-3 years younger. They want their bride to have graduated from college and works either for a government or one the larger companies in Korea. Men say they value personality first, shared values second, and looks third.

They would like them to be older by 1-2 years and graduated from a 4 year college and work for the government or one of the larger companies in Korea.
