Korean Women Wish to Marry Korean Americans

Korea Daily, Posted: Dec 02, 2008


LOS ANGELES - As travel to the United States for South Koreans becomes easier under a new visa waiver program, more Korean women have begun exploring the possibility of finding husbands in Korean American communities. As a result, the matchmaking business is thriving, reported the Korea Daily. A matchmaking service business in L.A.'s Koreatown told the newspaper that inquiry calls from women in South Korea have jumped more than 100 percent since the new policy's implementation. Matchmaking businesses from the country are hastily opening up L.A. branches and devising special programs to accommodate the need, reported the Korea Daily. U.S.-born or -raised Korean American males are popular among women in South Korea. Despite the demand, difficulties in obtaining visas obstructed many couples'opportunities to develop trans-Pacific love relationships. The U.S. Embassy in South Korea has traditionally categorized unmarried men and women as the group with a high risk of overstaying their visas and often denied them. Meeting the interested persons face-to-face remains a daunting task for many Korean women unless their U.S. counterparts actually visit South Korea.
