Vietnamese.

They will never run away.

Mail-order brides imported by South Korea from countries such as China, Vietnam, the Philippines, Cambodia, Uzbekistan, and Mongolia became known to the public of South Korea and the international community in the 2000s, largely due to the widespread human rights violations committed by international marriage brokers.

The entire process of mail-order marriages has been viewed as problematic by human rights advocates. According to the relevant organizations, it takes only four to seven days for a man to fly to the country, meet a large group of women, choose a few of them that he likes, make a final choice, and fly back. Most likely, the broker would also arrange for the man and the woman to have a wedding and spend their first night together before the man returns to South Korea. The woman then stays in housing provided by the broker for two to six months during the visa application. Not only does this practice incur additional costs for the marrying couple, there have been cases where brokers limited the women’s freedom to move or sexually harassed the women.

South Korea is not the only country which has this problem. Check out Rosebrides.com’s “Vietnamese Brides” webpage, for instance.

Vietnamese single ladies are not only pretty and nicely slim, but their faithfulness to their husbands makes them even more attractive. Femininity in this culture is often defined in terms of self-sacrifice, respect, keeping one’s self alluring, and a strong work ethic. She will always be committed to pleasing her husband and will always be in support of family.

The Vietnamese lady attracts attention with her slender and petite figure, her rich dark skin, long dark hair and beautiful, luminescent brown eyes. In the cities, there is no excuse for a woman to appear in public without being in some kind of stunning apparel. Bad habits are unusual and unacceptable to most Vietnamese ladies. Marriage is considered a life-time commitment and girls usually marry anywhere between 18 and 25 years of age. She is a loyal wife, a caring mother, an excellent cook and a diligent homemaker. [1]

In 2009, the Cambodian government temporarily banned marriages with South Koreans. Vietnam and the Philippines both prohibited international marriage brokers. The United Nations Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women has issued many reports. This website, however, is largely missing the perspectives from the exporting countries and the international community. My project and website focus on South Korea as an importing country: exactly what is happening, why it is happening, what is being done, and what more should be done.

As you may realize while exploring the site, the problem has multiple dimensions. It is a systemic problem, and the actors are caught in the system. We will never be able to fix the problem if we only imagine these marriages as some terrible, monstrous men trafficking some naïve, poor women.
