BTS dating someone one who is Half Korean and Half American
Because you didn’t specify if they are certain type of part American (such as African American, Latina, Native American etc…) I tried to keep this as broad as possible. If I did mention something that is normally done in one culture and not another I apologize.
Seokjin is not going to really care about your genealogy. He is dating you because he loves you and the only time this would matter would be if you still had relatives in America. Seokjin is very much a family man and he wants very much to be involved with your family. He wants to know them and learn all about theirs and your customs you may have. And he is also lowkey going to be excited to learn about the food your family makes too…
“Does that mean I get to watch your grandmother make the famous caramel apple pie you love so much?!”
He doesn’t really think about the fact that you are only half Korean. Unless you were raised in America and didn’t learn about Korean customs then he will take the time to patiently explain it to you. Especially if it is something you are embarrassed about. He knows how hard it is to be in a place that he doesn’t know what things meant so he will definitely take the measures to put you at ease.
“Jagiya, before we go out drinking tonight with the guys I want to explain the reason we drink soju a certain way…”
Hoseok was honestly a little surprised when you told him you were half American. He had no idea! He confessed that you really didn’t resemble your non-Korean parent so he didn’t even think twice about it. You felt a bit bad though because he found out when you had introduced him to your parents. He didn’t say anything right then of course but he did awkwardly ask you why one of your parents was not Korean when you two were alone. Did your Korean parent remarry? His jaw hit the floor when you explained that, No my parents did not remarry and they are my birth parents.
“Oh my god Jagiya…. Your parents probably hate me because I was staring so much!”
He is going to take this opportunity to learn more about the different cultures in America. If you were raised in Korea is going to ask about there is anything different in your household that your family does that other Korean families. Do you practice traditional Korean customs? What are some of the things your non-Korean parent does that they don’t do in Korea? Some of his questions may come across as rude but if you are ever offended by something he asks he will be quick to apologize because he would NEVER mean to upset you, he was just be genuinely curious. He has an inquisitive mind and that is something you fell in love with so you really should of been prepared for all of these questions.
“So wait a second it is actually your non-Korean parent that is the most strict about keeping your floors clean and not wearing shoes in the house? Why? That is not something you do in America… right?”
Jimin is such a caring bean. But don’t ever cross him because he will not hesitate to turn scary on someone. He knows that there are people in the world who think badly of someone who is only half of a nationality. And he will not hesitate to put someone in their place. If you happen to take after your non-Korean parent there might be someone who will make snide remarks or give you dirty looks. He spent hours working with Namjoon to come up with the PERFECT shut-your-shit-down response and will uses it liberally. He will turn from soft sweet Jimin to serious scary Jimin in under .05 seconds.
“Allow me to point out how ridiculous your prejudice is. Here in this restaurant there absolutely NO ONE who cares who my girlfriend is. No one but you. So that means you are 1 in what 40 people? You are meaningless at this very second. So please take your meaningless opinions somewhere out of our vicinity. Now.”
This is another one who is all about the family so if you have family back in America be prepared for those horribly long flights back and forth. And if those flights are not feasible then there will be many many video calls and messages being sent back forth to inquire about the welfare of each and every person in your family. Birthday presents will be carefully prepared and you if you two are unable to make it then it will sent in the most secure packaging possible and will somehow ALWAYS arrive on their birthday.
“Jagi look at these birthday cards I found online! They are perfect for your Grandfather and I even found those gloves he said he would like!”
“Taehyung-ah… his birthday is not for another six months.”
“It is always important to be prepared Y/N!”
Be prepared for focused student Jungkook. You know how he is learning English? Well that is all he is doing in his spare time. He will randomly ask you to quiz him and tell you not give go easy on him. He wants to be able to communicate with you family easily. If your first language is different than English? Then be prepared to spend at least 2 hours every day for the next several months teaching him. He will also ask Namjoon to only speak to him in English because he knows that even if your first language is not English it will still be best for him to speak it because you will be traveling to America to visit family. He will be absolutely prepared because he does not want inconvenient your family at all.
“Baby, can you help with this pronunciation? I don’t think I quite have it down.”
