More Korean men experiencing intercultural marriages

27th April 2008

I just read about international marriages in Korea, particularly between Korean men and women from Vietnam, China, the Philippines, Mongolia, Thailand, Russia, Uzbekistan.

In my Korean language class, offered free by the government, there are 7 housewives, me, and a Canadian man. 2 of the women come from the Philippines, 3 are from Vietnam, 1 is from Uzbekistan, and 1 is from Kazakhstan.

In some rural towns in Korea, where population decline is a problem, the local government helps pay for men to fo on marriage tours because the women they bring back and the babies they will produce help the town.

There is some controversy over how the women are sometimes treated by their Korean husbands.
