Loser Men in Korea
In 2009, a young Korean woman caused quite a stir when she stated on a television show that any man whose height was less than 180cm was a “loser”. Ever since then, that word has been jokingly used to describe short men.
The TV show was A Chat With Beauties(미녀들의수다) in which beautiful women talk about love and life.
The woman, nicknamed Hongdae Snob(홍대녀), was maliciously attacked online by netizens.
I wonder if the corollary also holds, namely that if you’re over 180 cm you are automatically assumed to be a winner?
