If you are at all familiar with Asian girls, you’ll know that there’s quite a vast cultural difference between Chinese girls and Korean girls across the globe and in the US. Though many Westerners may be stumped at differentiating between the two at first glance, there are quite a lot of distinctions that go beyond just looks.
As a half-Korean and half-Chinese American female living 1 mile away from Chinatown and 1 mile away from Koreatown in Los Angeles, I’d say I have a pretty objective viewpoint of both sides. However, I’m not here to keep things PC. Whether you’re a guy trying to figure out which girl you’re interested in dating or you’re a girl that’s just trying to understand the differences a little bit better, you’ve come to the right place. Brace yourselves, my friends. This is going to be a brutally honest showdown of Chinese Girls vs Korean Girls for your reading pleasure.
If you’ve ever known a Chinese girl, you’ll know they are extremely independent and go-getters. They’re beautiful, smart, and know what they like and want. Many Chinese girls are very successful academically and create big names for themselves in their respective endeavors (ie. business, tech, and academia).
Most Chinese girls are true pioneers in their industries and tend to be extremely resourceful. They are relentless workers and excellent leaders in the workplace. If you’re looking for a badass boss babe who makes a good name for female-power, Chinese girls are your best bet.
Also, Chinese girls have excellent family values. They tend to be more traditional and their families play a huge role in their lives. For all you guys out there reading this, it also means they make excellent partners and are great to introduce to Mom and Dad. Be warned though: because they are very family oriented, you really have to earn the trust of the family if you’re dating a Chinese girl and you’re not Chinese.
Another thing to note is Chinese girls tend to be more frugal and cautious with their money spending. They aren’t the extravagant type and aren’t money-mongering or gold-digging types. Generally, they’ve probably already made a decent fortune from their own successes and endeavors since they are badass boss babes.
If you’re looking for a girl who likes to eat, Chinese girls are down for the food. Chinese girls are never picky and will eat almost anything. They’re very open-minded when it comes to food and different food styles, so foodies, REJOICE!
However, with great responsibility comes sacrifice. Because Chinese girls are so successful, they tend to have very VERY strong personalities. Culturally, most Chinese families come from a matriarchal structure, so women are most certainly in power and not afraid to let it be known. Frankly, you don’t want to get in a verbal argument with a Chinese girl unless you’re prepared to lose.
Also, the term “Tiger Mom” is derived from a Chinese female for a good reason. Chinese girls are strong mothers and dominate in relationships. With generally Type A personalities, they take charge and want to be in control most of the time. They are head strong and don’t really take any garbage from anybody. If you make a Chinese girl mad, they won’t give you hell, but they will cut you out and will never look back.
If you’ve ever seen a Korean drama, you probably get the gist of what Korean girls might be like. Korean girls are stunning, stylish, and loving. They are true showstoppers and have bright, sparkling, and endearing personalities that make them so easy to fall in love with. Korean girls are extremely creative, artistic, and have a great sense of style and trends.
Many Korean girls will pursue more creative careers since they excel in those fields. Korean girls are incredible artists and are extremely successful in music and performing arts. They also take fashion and beauty to the next level. Out of all the Asian beauty industries, Korea is the leading industry for beauty worldwide. They LOVE beauty products and always take very good care of their physical appearances.
The majority of Koreans are Christian in the US, so many of them grow up with strong Christian values (but that doesn’t necessarily mean they stick to them). They also learn at a very young age deeply rooted respect for those that are older than them. Since respect is integrated directly in the language by the way you address your elders, Korean girls are always extremely respectful to their own families and to their spouse’s.
In Korean culture, males are the dominant ones who generally are the breadwinners. Many Korean girls still hold the values true and search for men that will take care of them in the long run. In return, Korean girls are very loyal, kind, and will ride or die once you love lockdown.
Also, Korean girls love to eat! They are big foodies and definitely don’t like to skimp out on a nice meal. However, sometimes they aren’t as adventurous about eating different types of food. They generally like to stick with their roots.
However, with beauty and undying love comes a dark side. Since many Korean girls are looking for the perfect prince charming, they focus heavily on their aesthetics sometimes to the point of obsessiveness. Korea is the country that has the highest rate of plastic surgery per capita in the world with nearly 1 million procedures per year. Many Korean girls will undergo expensive and risky surgeries to achieve the perfect look, which also creates a pretty homogenous looking society.

Another thing about Korean girls is they love, and I mean LOVE money. Brand names, expensive cars, and luxury items are priorities for Korean girls when looking for the proper suitors. If you don’t have a full wallet, don’t count on dating one. Korean girls are notorious for being known as “gold-diggers” and expect to be wooed with expensive and lavish gifts.
If you’re looking for a ride-or-die girl who’s beautiful, objective, and doting, Japanese girls are truly the model citizens. Japanese girls are intelligent, thoughtful, caring, and understand the true meaning of empathy. They also live and breathe loyalty and always put family as a top priority in their book.
If you ever marry a Japanese girl, you’ll know that she will take on your family just like her own. She’ll also treat your parents with the utmost respect since integrity, respect, and honor are the utmost social priorities in Japanese culture. However, because of their deep-rooted traditional cultural values, if they do get married most Japanese women generally take on the role of house-wife. They are more dependant on their male counterparts to provide financially for the family since in Japan, once a woman becomes pregnant, she is not expected to work from then on. For those Japanese women who decide to pursue careers, they tend to be extremely independent and are known to not marry. This is also attributing to a significantly lower birthrate in Japan.
When it comes to Japanese girls weight, they tend to be on the very petite sizes. Since minimalism is very popular in Japanese culture, the diet in Japan is one of the healthiest in the world. Japanese women are very careful about what they eat and try to maintain a healthy and balanced lifestyle.
Japanese women also are very stylish and feminine. Japanese fashion is huge, and if you’ve ever been to Harajuku, you’ll know how seriously Japanese women take their fashion. Also, Japanese beauty products are a huge industry, and they make some of the best hair products in the world. You can count on Japanese women for being huge advocates of self-care.
Like any person that exists on this planet, we all have our good qualities and our bad ones. We all have distinctions that make us unique. As someone who is of Korean and Chinese descent, I can definitely say that some of these qualities apply to me.

Hey.. I think not only your comments are biased but you are not in touch with reality. Chinese girls are the bloodiest gold digger we, Asians, come across in Asia. They are not only mean but some of the most cunning and best loud mouthed liars. Korean women are much more family oriented and care for their partners compared to Chinese women. Chinese women are self centred to say the least. Japanese woman are much softer of the two on surface, but have a steel resolve once you are in partnership and make the best wife. Don’t forget that tiny Japan ruled china because their women are storing enough. Please be honest when you write such things and don’t play with words, like a typical Chinese woman !
You know that Kiki, the writer of this article, is half Korean and half Chinese right? So it’s silly to say that she is biased against Korean women. <3 Kaila
I can tell you got some extreme hatred going on here. Maybe you’re the one who’s biased.
Chinese women are very successful in business. And i dont think they are gold diggers. They usually own different kinds of business, specially here in the philippines where most business were owned by chinese families.
You say all these positive characteristics of Chinese women in the beginning and their “weakness” is that they have strong personalities. I think it’s very unprofessional to stereotype all korean women as gold diggers. A lot of korean women can be frugal and they do not date men just to get luxury brands. And if this can be said about all korean women, this can also be applied to a Chinese women too. If you are going to write an article about Chinese, Japanese, and korean girls, at least don’t have such a strong bias. Even though you are both Korean and Chinese, it is disrespectful to say all korean women are gold diggers and love money while Chinese women are the epitome of perfection from what you describe, even though this may not be true.
