BTS = Brainless Talking Sucks

, , , , | Right | November 1, 2020

I’m half-Korean and half-white, but I’m almost completely white-passing so people don’t usually know. I study as a producer and I want to go to Korea to produce for K-Pop entertainment companies. I am watching a Korean variety show when I get a visitor, a girl I know who uses our recording studio.

Visitor: “Hey, can I ask for something?”

Me: “Yes, what can I do for you?”

The visitor notices what I am doing.

Visitor: “Wait, what are you watching?”

Me: “Just a show. I’ll turn it off.”

Visitor: “I didn’t know you liked Korean stuff. I didn’t peg you as that kind of girl.”

Me: “I’m just watching a show.”

Visitor: “It’s super cringy for white people to watch that stuff, you know. It’s weird. What’s wrong with what we’ve got?”

Me: “What are you talking about?”

Visitor: “It’s like a Koreaboo thing, isn’t it?”

Me: “I’m half-Korean. Watching these shows helps me practise the language.”

Visitor: “What? No, you’re not! Your phone’s in English.”

Me: “What the h*** are you doing on my phone?”

Visitor: “Uh…”

She left pretty quickly after that. I didn’t find out what she was doing on my phone, though. I don’t produce for her anymore; she can’t look me in the eye!
