6 Male Behaviours That Are Only Romantic in K-dramas

April 27, 2022

There are some weird behaviours K-drama has normalised that are borderline creepy but somehow look cute when Korean actors do it. Nigerian men can’t try it sha because it will end in tears. Here are seven of those things.

1. Piggyback rides

Sorry oh, but if a Nigerian man randomly carries me on his back, I’m just going to think he wants to kidnap me. What kind of yeye romance is that one please abeg?

2. Pulling you close inside the bus

Why’re you rubbing your sweat on my body in the name of romance? Why’re we even inside danfo in the first place? The buses in Korea are cute and romance friendly, but the ones in Nigeria will only bring insult and suffering. 

3. Acting like an asshole for no reason

That nonsense thing men in K-drama do where they act mean to you even though they like you. If any Nigerian man does that and his babe finds out that he’s bullying her just because he likes her, e don be.

4. Holding you tighter when you say no

When it’s not like you used jazz. What would make you escape the beating of your life? If a Naija babe tells you she wants to break up and you hold on to her while she screams no like they do in K-dramas, omo whatever you see, take it like that. 

5. Stalking her

There’s nothing remotely cute or romantic about stalking a woman, especially when you’re already dating her. But in K-dramas, the male love interest will follow the babe around when he’s supposed to be at work just because he can’t concentrate. Try that one with your Nigerian babe first. They’ll just block you since you want to be creepy.

6. Kissing a woman to clean her mouth

In K-drama, the quirky female lead will have a streak of stew on her lips. And instead of her male love interest wiping it away with a napkin like a normal person, he’ll go and kiss the stain away. Please don’t try it with a Nigerian woman. Imagine kissing egusi or okra soup from someone’s mouth. Eww.
