Because her husband was not with her, she had a really hard time and was asked to come back many times.
Stressed and tired, she called her husband in Korea, and had him talk to one of the officials.
Enter a room full of people and you will instantly be attracted to some while others won’t even register on your radar.
Who is so self-aware to know exactly why they are attracted to someone?
Every one of us a suspect; our Korean spouse a possible victim.
A Filipina my husband and I know shared with us her unpleasant experience in the Korean Embassy when she was applying for her visa.
These challenges will come after you get married and live in Korea with your husband or wife, but right after the wedding, before coming to Korea, you will have to get through the tedious process of getting a visa. A very young Filipina was not granted the visa, because her husband is 30 years older than her.Most Korean parents-in-law won’t learn English, Filipino or whatever your native language is just to be able to talk to you, of course… Besides, we have known each other for 7 years before we got married and both his and my friends and family can attest to our long-distance relationship…and you can’t expect them to adjust to your culture. but you see, even if you’ve got nothing to hide, you will get the same suspicious glare from the official interviewing you, so it’s normal to get nervous.Everyday, you are faced with the challenge of “fitting in”, trying to understand and embrace a culture entirely different from yours. The questions seem endless, some degrading, and you have to answer them in front of other couples who will be asked the same things.You have to learn and “perfect” your spouse’s language, because it’s the only way you can communicate with your in-laws. When my husband and I had our interview in the Korean Embassy in Manila, we were quite confident that we would not be given a hard time, because we submitted all the requirements.
