Is it normal i feel i am/was korean?
Hi so I am not, as far as i know, of korean descent or korean ethnicity in the slightest. I’m actually argentine and salvadoreña, so yeah hispanic but something has been bothering me lately. I think it all started when I was 5 years old and asked for a book on korea for christmas and asked santa to learn hangeul?? (the korean alphabet) and then when I was 11 i begged my parents to go to the korean market down my street almost every single day. since i was 6 all my friends have been of korean descent and i have connected with all of them? i don’t know why. also i only use korean products because they’re a the only things that work on my skin, western products cause breakouts and reactions where as ones in korea clear my skin and the makeup matches me perfectly. i don’t know why but this hasn’t started to bother me until last week when my friend brought me tteokbogi (korean food) and i stared crying cause i just had this sense i was at home? i watch korean broadcasting systems only and please don’t give me any of that “ur just a koreaboo” shit because i’ve got that feedback for so long and it’s annoying cause i hate kpop and all those korean stereotypes, plus i’ve felt like i was a korean before i was even aware of that type of media (like i previously mentioned, 5 years old??) i don’t know what this is or if anyone else has felt this way? i don’t know what could have influenced this. my mom is a very spiritual person and she believes i was korean in my past life and she made that connection years ago when i was little and she thought something was off. personally i don’t believe in past lives but on the other hand i don’t know why i feel this way. i’m 17 now and i have been fluent in korean since i was 13 (feel free to comment in korean as well because i will respond)
