I went to Carribean Bay! It was soooooo much fun. I LOVE water

. Then we went to Everland after.
.
My experience:

.
A cultural difference I noticed was that everyone showers and changed clothes together in one room. That was a little shocking but it made me comfortable with my body because everyone was so comfortable with theirs so I gained some confidence.
.
Another thing is that almost all of the girls did their makeup before and after swimming. And even fixed their hair. I think it is a cultural difference because Korea is a society where everyone feels the need to be perfect when in reality I think guys actually don't care. Usually in America we just don't wear makeup and let our hair dry naturally as it is when we go swimming. No one cares what you look like.
.
I think women are especially pressured to look perfect. But I feel like Korean women pressure each other and themselves more than men do. They already look beautiful but they feel the need to fix everything.
.
Usually a guy will like me more if I'm open about not wearing makeup in front of them or just being natural. I like wearing makeup but I'm not afraid to be natural when I want to.
.
Someone who truly loves you will appreciate all of your natural aspects more than if you pretend to be something else all the time.
.
I think people have to learn to accept themselves. Especially women. Isn't it exhausting putting on a mask everyday? Learn to love yourself for the beauty you already have.

    Koreans care too much what others think about themselves.

    @Innes It makes me sad and angry sometimes. Because there are so many beautiful people. Life is so short. So why care? It is not important.

    @제시 Yes, It's so sad. But I don't blame them. It's their choices.

    @Innes And the influences of cultural history as well. Like that of Confucianism. But I think everything has to do with change! One person at a time. Like America too. Women use to be suppressed the same.

    Were there a lot of people when you went there?? and what time was it? I feel like before end summer, I should go once 😅 but if a lot of people there, I probably feel uncomfortable and easily exhausted already.

    One of the reasons they(usually young girls) makeup before&after swimming is to upload photos of their best on the social media, I think.😄

    @Seungcheol I still don't get it 😂 Usually they use snow or a photo editor which edits your photos even without makeup 😂

    I agree with your opinion! Our people sometimes too much care about others! We have to think about a inner beauty!

    You didn't mention the way women wear clothing in swimming pool and the sea 😂 If I were you, I'd notice this first that they don't wear bikinis and thongs. Many western girls want to wear them in korean but they can't because it'll stand out. It's as awkward as wearing makeup in the water 😪
