cultureLesson Three - Romance, Dating and Love American Style Koreans are surrounded by examples of American lifestyle every time they turn on their TVs or go to the movies however, a lot of those examples are misleading. Some of the most misleading cultural elements are that of romance and relationships. "Sex In the City" is not a good example of how most westerners conduct their romantic relationships. In this class, we'll take a look at the statistics as well have an open discussion on the media's involvement Korean perceptions of western romance. You'll have a chance to ask questions and share opinions on the subject. This class will be in a lecture format with an open forum for classroom dialogue
