How to Avoid Being Bitten By a Korean Vampire: A pseudo-scientific survival guide

The other day I was asked by a Korean friend a very unusual question “What is your blood type?”. I stared blankly wondering if this person worked for the Red Cross, made a weird Twilight reference, or was just so uninterested talking with me that they would ask such a ludicrous question.

 

After searching the internet, I found out that in Korea , some people attribute your blood type to your personality. A very plausible and logical explanation. This KKonnect Writer suggests something sinister… Korean Vampires.

 

Before you turn the page on your objection of the existence of Korean Vampires, please consider the following points: Did you know there are no official government statistics on the amount of Vampires in Korea?  Ever wonder why Seoul sounds so similar to “Soul”? Or why PSY “Mr.Gangnam Style” wears sunglasses in daylight? Did you ever wonder why Koreans like RED colored Kimchi so much?  It’s time we get educated on this blood type theory before we lay victim to a Korean Vamp.

 

The table below (Courtesy of visitkorea.or.kr), shows how compatible you are with a person depending on blood type. I believe this can also be abstracted to how likely you are to be bitten by a vampire by blood type.

Type A male

70%

Type B male

20%

Type O male

Make sure to also know your blood type and the blood type of the Vampire you are dealing with. With assistance from Seoulistic.com, the following are personality traits according to blood type.

 

Blood Type A  people are introverted, considerate, self-conscious, patient, unable to express emotions well and tend to be perfectionists.

 

Blood Type B  people are creative, individualistic, self-centered, inconsiderate and passionate.

 

Blood Type AB people are critical, indecisive, unpredictable, emotional and are most likely to be geniuses.

 

Blood Type O are leaders, easygoing, friendly, outgoing (Hmm, no negatives?  I think the person who made these stereotypes was a Type O)

 

I urge all of you to figure out the blood type of your friends and your susceptibility to be bitten.  Next time a Korean Guy or Girl tries to charm you, make sure to watch your neck, or perhaps wear a turtleneck shirt…

  1. Pure. Genius. I just knew something was amiss. Although I think I must have had a full blood transfusion of the wrong type as an infant because I’m type A. Introverted? Really? LOL

  2. Brilliant Article! I noticed this whole “blood type affecting one’s personality” in a lot of Korean T.V Shows. I’m a Type O so I guess all I need now is to find a Type A or even Type B Korean husband.
