Yesterday the ddokbokki lady near our house asked Jae “who is that foreigner standing behind u?” When he said “my wife” she clapped for us hahahah
Usually people are just curious. We get lots of stares but no negative comments.
Jae’s aunts and uncles all drove in and dressed up for our wedding ceremony . They treated me like family and we had a great time. His uncle invited us to visit. One of his uncles (that lives in Australia) called to congratulate us.
That said… This is NOT typical. My friends mother threatened to kill herself because my friend got engaged to a samsung employee (a very good job in korea) and not a doctor….so u can imagine what marrying someone of a different race would do…
Usually the family won’t be rude to your face tho… I’ve found that they usually just say stuff behind your back haha so even if his family hates u…they won’t tell u… I wouldn’t worry about that.
