Korean Blood Types

How can we have NOT talked about Blood Types all this time? Seriously! This is important stuff! Well, not really that important, because it’s not necessarily true, but it is shocking how our blood type descriptions do fit us quite well.

What shocks us, though, is that we fit our blood type descriptions better than we fit our Horoscope descriptions. I never really related with the Capricorn/Aquarius characteristics, and the only thing Martina agreed with as a Taurus was in being stubborn. These blood type qualities, though? Yes, I’m antisocial and Martina is a social butterfly. I can be sociable in a social setting, but I don’t put up with much and avoid stuff I don’t like. Also, supposedly I don’t care much for forgiving and forgetting, because I’m never offended, so there’s nothing to forgive or forget. It’s impossible to offend me. IMPOSSIBLE. Maybe that’s why I’m not in any Kpop fandoms? OHHH BURN! No wait don’t go! It was a joke! Ahhhh. There I go again being too blunt.

I wonder if Korea has the equivalent to Big Poppa. “Who they attractin with that line ‘what’s yo name what’s yo sign'”? In Korea it’d be more like “what’s yo name what’s yo blood type?” And instead of Big Poppa it’d be Big Abba. I’d totally listen to that song. On a more serious note, hey you: Kpop Celebrities. I know you read these blog posts (you don’t have to hide anymore). Where’s that club for AB people? I need to know plz.

Soo Zee was telling us how, in first dates, blood types very often come up in conversation. Maybe not to any great depth, but it’s asked, even if just in passing. Have you been asked your Astrological sign on your first dates?

I only know one person who’s really into astrology. I won’t name him, in case he’s reading. We did have a chat with him, once, though, and it was freaky how into it he was. It’s even down to the point where he can say “it’s this day in the Astrological calendar so ______ kind of stuff is supposed to happen today.” I remember he blamed the cracking of his toilet as a result of it, because technology was supposed to act up that day. I wouldn’t consider my pooper technology, really, though I suppose it technically stands up to the definition. You know, I guess that conversation we had was so specific that he probably already knows that it’s him, so there’s no point in us naming him anymore. Ok, fine. You win. His name was G-Dragon. Ha! No.

Also, there’s a fairly popular webtoon on the Korean net about Blood Types. I’m gonna link it here for relevance: BOOYA! Some of them are actually quite hilarious. They’re worth checking out :D

Yeah! So that’s it for this week’s TL;DR. Please let us know if there’s any characteristics we missed out on for the blood types, and also if you’re in any way shocked by our blood types. We’re shocked how much they fit us. Maybe you guise were like “pffft it figures.” I wonder if there’s a common bloodtype amongst commenters here. Maybe it’s only A types that are drawn to commenting? I wonder. There’s only one way to find out: by clicking on this pretty button below right here:

  1. Hi~ What if people decided to discuss on one person in particular about his/her blood type and they all said different ones? Actually, when you call someone 4D in Korea, is that that? I am not native English speaker, so I’m not really familiar with the ‘4D’ use…? Haha and I’m kind off too lazy to read theory about it (if there’s any bcuz I dunno)

  2. I have the Universal Bloodtype, which is O Negative. This means that I can give my blood to anyone regardless of their Bloodtype. Because of this, and there not being a lot of O Negative blood types here in the USA, I donate blood frequently (about every 56 days for whole blood). So far I’ve donated about 2 gallons. Anywho, I’m not sure if they take the negatives and positives of the specific bloodtype into consideration, or if they are talking about the main bloodtypes in general. Being an O Negative type, I can only agree with hard working/workaholic, which is the same for my zodiac sign (I’m a Capricorn). I actually have a tattoo that I designed which is my zodiac sign symbol with my bloodtype (O -) incorporated into it. I’m actually a mix of all of the bloodtypes, it just depends on my mood/how I’m feeling. Example: It is very easy for me to make friends, IF I want to. Personally, I am not a very social person. Like Simon, I only socialize when I feel that it is worth my time. I keep to myself most of the time, I get bored easily at times, I like organizing things, I’m very adventurous, hardworking, again I can get along with virtually anyone IF I wanted to but I normally don’t tend to be a social butterfly, I’m not very talkative unless I’m having a discussion/debate/rant, etc. I would be like a walking contradiction to people in Korea who believe in these Bloodtype personalities. I can be any of the personalities, as can any other person. Not all of them are spot on, but some of them are close enough I guess.

  3. wow, im blood type O+ and this fits me so well! i have 2 jobs, one im training to be a supervisor for, plus go to uni, i also love planning things, im planning a trip for Thailand and driving my bf crazy over it XD. I am a huge social butterfly, i get in trouble for talking all the time at work, don’t care if they’er strangers i will talk. and i hate been bored and find so many hobbies i immerse myself into. and yes, totally agree, my parents or siblings NEVER wake me in the morning or make a sound because no one wants me to wake up angry because i explode (i like me sleep T^T) and true NEVER forget! and forgiving can be hard too.

  4. Ok, so I Google the blood types to see if there is anything more specific that would nail me down more than this vid did or exhonerate me.

    O+ here. “Those with blood type O are said to be natural leaders – they are outgoing, energetic and optimistic. They speak their minds loud and clear whilst being friendly and easy going. They tend to be expressive and passionate with high self-confidence and are highly ambitious. They have a strong physical presence and are unlikely to be overlooked. They tend to be dramatic which might make others feel uncomfortable. They can be arrogant, insensitive, ruthless and vein. They can be obsessively preoccupied with success. However, they won’t leave someone who is in trouble by themselves and are said to be natural athletes. It is suggested that blood type O’s eat a high protein diet and exercise rigorously.”

    I have to say that last part? Not so much.
    Leader? well… does running your own business count? I thought it just meant I was working for an ass.
    Pieces for zodiac. Kinda fits but not really.
    Chinese zodiac…sheep. Now, that offended me at first until I found out that, basically, It means I prefer my own company….most of the time. I USED to be in the needy part but now I think I’m more along the lines of a blood type AB in that respect.

    And now that I’ve posted all this, it means absolutely nothing.
    Fun way to waste some time though :D.
    Thanx for explaining this guys! I was really starting to kinda wonder why all the people I talk to online from Korea wanted to know my blood type. Now I know. :P

  5. If you ask me Blood Type As seem boring. I don’t know what Blood Type I am but I wouldn’t want to be A. I think I am though, I’m such an introvert and really sensitive. I’d love to be O or AB. Or even B, cos at least I could live my life not giving a fuck about what others think of me.

    Also, about AB; the reason they can be considered confusing is because they seem kind of bipolar. One minute they can be happy and fun loving, next minute they can be all emo. At least that’s what I’ve understood from what I’ve read.

    And lol, I laughed so hard at that Aussie accent. I’m an Aussie and it sounded very British to me. xD

    Lastly, about Zodiac Signs; I’m actually one of the few that believes in them a lot. I know they’re not always going to be true and match up though, and I don’t mind if others don’t believe in it. I just find it really interesting. Same with Blood Types. However I’m not as crazy as your friend, I’m not interested in Horoscopes and like ‘what shit is going to happen today’ kind of thing because I find it utter bullshit. However I match my Zodiac sign very well and that might also be a reason why I believe in them. And I know if you don’t match your Zodiac sign, it can be because your birth chart has a lot of other star signs in it. So Martina might have Gemini or Leo or something in her sign, as she is more outgoing. I think Simon acts a lot like an Aquarius though!

    Anyway, that’s enough nerdiness out of me. Going to shut up now. Great video though, glad I finally got around to watching it! ^^

  7. There’s a 4 episode Japanese drama about the way they are perceived in Japan, it’s really instructive since there’s little info bubble now and then about the blood type. It’s called “ketsuekigatabetsu onna ga kekkon suru houhou”. Each episode is about one blood type (and not every episode is good), and each one as a diffenrent main actress. So it’s about four girls with the same name but different blood type. Each story tells a different kind of love story for the girls and how they end up getting married.

  8. I’m blood type O but definitely do not fit the profile. I’m introverted, and get called out often for being too rational, and not emotional enough, lol. I just don’t understand game playing in social roles (although, I’m capable of faking it), if everyone was upfront and honest wouldn’t things be so much easier. It would work out better if I was a guy, because girls don’t seem to have these traits as easily accepted.

  10. I couldn’t begin to tell you what my blood type is. But I do know I’m a cancer and from the personality descriptions I’ve read, I match it pretty decently. As for the Chinese zodiac I am a monkey and I’ve read conflicting things regarding that. Some of what I’ve read I match pretty well, others I don’t match except for like one or two things.

    Based off of what you’ve said in the video, my personality seems like a mix of A and AB. Watch, I’ll really be something like O haha.

  13. I am blood type O and that is like the opposite of me. I am much closer to type A or to type AB. Funny, huh? But yeah, my students have asked me a few times here in Korea what my blood type is. According to most of my students, type O is the most desirable? Like as in for a relationship? I don’t really know.

  14. Hi S&M! (I Hope this is in the right place)
    I’m curious about Religion in Korea. GD posted a photo of a cross on Instagram and a lot of people got upset over it. Same with Taeyang and his tattoo, and Minzy and her concerts. What is the most common religion over there, and is it very publicly demonstrated? (Naaaaastay discussion subject)

  15. I’m blood type A, and this sounds 100% accurate. I’m super boisterous but I am kind of shy and I have a really hard time/hate talking to people I don’t know really well. I worry a lot like to the point I’ve made myself physically sick with stress, so that’s accurate. And I mean I do get good grades and I don’t every really get in trouble because I never really break any rules. So I dunno, this makes me sound like a freaking pushover, but I think it’s relatively accurate.

  18. I notice that A LOT of people underrate K-Pop in the U.S., saying that the music is the same thing OVER and OVER again…which can be true…sometimes, but then they start to think that all people in the K-pop industry are talentless. In Korea, do people underrate K-Pop Idols, thinking that they are just groups that are packed with pretty boys/girls in EXTREMELY tight pants? or do they acknowledge that some people actually have this thing called talent? Thanks~

  19. I asked my mother and she tells me I’m blood type O, as are the rest of my family members. In fact, the Red Cross website tells me that the majority of hispanics are blood type O. Which, if we’re using this Korean personality system, totally explains SO much about the culture.
    Of course, I’m not like that at all, so whatevs.

  20. If type B gets all the nookie, then, genetically, Koreans should mostly be type B or AB.
    But Korea is mostly Type A so, either Type B uses condoms or has weak sperm

    QED

    Of more interest would be your Briggs Myers Personality Typ I’m betting Simon is ENTP while Martina is ENFJ

  22. I’m honest introvert with blood type 0. I think that it is funny when description maches you and you share it, but i hate people which take it too seriously and judge others without thinking. I met a person like that (judging by horoscope) and i’m still wondering how it’s possible that we were in the same room longer than 5 minutes.

    3 years ago
  23. Wow! Those descriptions nailed me and my wife perfectly. XD I am an AB and she is an O. That was very interesting to watch. And I couldn’t agree more with Simon about never wanting to make an O angry…although that is kinda hard sometimes since they outnumber us ABs by such a large amount.

    ANYWAYS I don't know if this goes under TL;DR or not, but I'm gonna ask anyways, what are your thoughts about kpop companies merging/sharing stocks? Recently, Loen bought over half of Starship's stocks and this past summer, Woollim merged with SM C&C. There have been tons of rumors about the Woollim and SM C&C merge. People are wondering whether or not Woollim merged with SM because of pressure from SM or because they wanted to. I heard of these rumors mainly when the TOHEART promo came out. What do you guys think about this (and the promo :P)?

  28. nice TLDR guys! also, before i forget, i wanted to say that i think it’s cool you are now answering some of the last week’s comments at the end of the video!

    Now, on to the subject at hand! in Japan, it’s pretty much the same. blood type is a big deal and i think the attributes you’ve described are the same as well. people take it very seriously and i remember there was a big scandal a few years ago about several companies that was refusing to hire type B people, like, you had to write what your blood type was on your resume and if you were type B, then your application wasn’t even considered. craziness, right?

    Also, i knew that Martina was gonna be type O, because I’m type O and we are sooo similar, lol. i guess the only think that doesn’t fit me about the stereotype is being a hardworker though… cuz i’m sooo lazy… lol.

    keep up the good work!!

  30. Okay so my friend who is obsessed with Korea said that people with certain blood types get along or disagree with others who have a certain different blood type. For example, people with blood type AB might get along well with people with blood type O and might not get along with people with blood type A. Could anyone tell me if this is true and if it is what the relations are?

  34. What is the stigma towards interracial marriage in Korea? Especially if it is a Korean man and a foreign woman vs. a Korean woman and a foreign man. Also, is it more popular for interracial couples to live within the country or move outside of Korea?

    Maybe one point missed out was how in Korean variety shows for K-Pop bans there is a huge focus on what blood type each member of the band is (I’m thinking especially about UKISS Vampire) and they always make it dramatic when a member is AB and make fun of the B’s for being lazy and rude. xD

  48. Blood type O here, and total total introvert. People are fascinating, but exhausting. Planning events? Oh my gosh. Uh-uh. Nope. No way. That would involve talking to others, and there ain’t no way that’s happening. I’d probably have to ATTEND said event, too. Good gravy, that’s a terrifying thought. I’m thinking this blood-type thing might not be accurate.

  49. I recently had a look at my blood type info and it actually fits me pretty well.

    Relevant to this topic, do they pay any attention to negative blood types? Or do they just sit in with positive types? (I’ve got a negative blood type; I’m A-.)

    Also nobody believes in horoscopes! My parents think astrology is a scam. It’s “all rubbish” apparently.

  51. Yo Simon! Capricorn/Aquarius, AB type here as well. I’m EXACTLY as described too! The dead-on accuracy really surprised me. I, too, think life is too short to waste on people i don’t appreciate, or be offended and the like. I’m kind of a computer too, in the sense i tend to carefully choose where to invest my emotions. On the other hand i do dive head first in friendships and such (when i like someone, i reaaaally like them) and am kind of a workaholic. Can’t sit on my ass for the life of me. Soo, true AB type but what about the O type hints? How does the blood type system explain those things? Are there some exceptions to the rules?
    Also, guys, i almost choked on my pasta because of all the laughing. Please go easy on us. XDDD (no don’t, i really enjoy your cheerfulness)

  54. I don’t know my blood type but from your descriptions A fits my personality the best. I’d be freaky if I actually am A. Hmm.
    As for horoscopes, I’m a Gemini and only some of the traits fit me, mostly the negative ones. Gemini’s are supposed to be really talkative, eloquent and make friends easily, but I’m not like that at all. In Chinese zodiac I’m a sheep and I think that fits me more than Gemini does.

    3 years ago
    • You sound just like me! I too am Gemini, and always hated the fact that I only seemed to have the negative traits, and always wished I was less socially awkward… as for eloquence, in writing I don’t think I’m too bad, but try to get me to voice an opinion, or anything else vocally, and that’s a whole other story (though I like to blame it on my farmer-sounding accent) :P
      As for my blood type… wouldn’t have a clue, but I think type A seems to fit me too. I don’t know enough about the chinese zodiac to comment, except for I think I’m a horse… whatever that means lol.

      3 years ago
      • I’ve come to terms with my social awkwardness and being an introvert, but I do still in some situations wish I was more extroverted. I think I’d make friends more easily :’D
        I think I’m quite eloquent in writing as well though sometimes it takes a long time to write what I want to say. Even with short answers. But out there in the real world I stumble on my words, can’t find the right words or just end sentences abruptly etc etc. This happens especially when I’m nervous. With my best friend who I’ve known for over 16 years I can be quite witty and eloquent tho. So my eloquentness depends on the situation and company I’m with I guess.

        Your chinese zodiac is determined by the year you were born, it’s quite easy to look up. :)

  56. I’m also AB! Woohoo! But regarding horoscopes, I came across an old Chinese book on personalities that combined the western and eastern horoscope with bloodtypes to predict your personality. There were always a few pages going into detail on each possible combination, and it surprised me just how absolutely accurate it was! I mean, the book could describe aspects of my personality that no one else knows. And I showed it my friends/family, and they said the same thing. I just that that was interesting. Has anyone else ever encountered a combination of horoscope/blood type too?

  58. I can see some characteristics of B type in myself but more importantly I would love to calculate Simon’s natal chart (I have to say I slightly screamed when Simon told he was a cusp baby)! I love astrology and I practise with k-pop idols’ natal charts if I happen to find enough information to calculate them. I usually focus on sun, moon and rising sign and moon phase to see the main personality that the person reflects to the world in a daily life before I delve deeper.

    I’m blood O- and i’ve been dying to donate blood but I am not allowed since i’m very underweight ;-;
    Whats the point of being a universal donor if you can’t donate blood? I read somewhere that there isn’t enough blood to give around but only a handful of people don’t qualify to give it. So give! GIVE!
    I find that I don’t really fit into my blood type description and fit into the Scorpio one exactly. (I’m extremely jealous and protective over those I love)

    I think its awful that the Nazi’s used this for bad instead of good.
    They thought B types were most likely criminals
    They even had the blood donor and the receiver in the same room hooked up to each other.

    • That’s lovely! I have the same problem, I’ve tried to give my blood three times, but I only succeeded once. And that was because I was on holiday with my ex-boyfriend’s Italian grandmother and I was VERY well fed. And I was very weak afterwards. Otherwise they wouldn’t have my blood.
      I tend to be anemic and my weight is barely over 50kg, so in the end, I gave up on trying to give it…
      But it’s amazing that you are so keen on it, so do insist that your friends and family give their blood!!

  73. I’m blood type O just like Martina *mental high-five to Martina* but I can say that I’m kind of like my blood type. I’m really not the most out-going person at all. Making friends isn’t hard to do for me it’s just that I’m not the person to go up to someone and randomly say hi. However, when I’m comfortable around the people I’m in, I’m definitely out there. I am a hard worker but not all the time, but I will have to say that I’m the happiest when I’m the busiest. From hearing the descriptions of the blood types I would probably be mostly like blood type A which strangely my whole family is type A and I’m the only type O lol

  75. Simon as AB makes total, complete sense.

    I’m an O, but I think I’m closer to a B – the laid-back Japanese version obviously, not the playboy Korean one! Haha. I wouldn’t say I’m super-social or anything but I like meeting new people and changing things up, and I’m a bit impatient and impulsive.

    When I was younger I was very athletic and worked very hard all the time, so perhaps there’s some truth to the stereotyping… I probably only became more B-like (where you annoyingly rely on other people) because my O-type plans wouldn’t work out anyway due to poor focus. Perhaps my true O colors will re-emerge when (if) I manage to settle into a stable career.

    Incidentally, that’s why I’ll never believe in blood types – where’s the acknowledgement that people’s personalities are constructed based on their experiences, and can change over time???

  76. I find this so funny. I have no idea what my sign is. I am type O negative (I wonder if the positive/negative has any effect?) and everything they said was spot on except I am not the life of the party. I’m more like Simon at a party. I actually don’t really like people very much. (my friends say I’m not prejudice, I hate everyone.) Everyone in my family (my mom, dad, sister, brother-in-law and my husband) are all type O negative and we are all exceptionally different lol

  78. I’m A positive. I found that out when I was a freshman in college and banking blood for my upcoming surgery. That’s when I found out my dad has the same blood type as I do, and he donated, too.So instead of my having to give four units, we each gave two. Then we’d have juice and split a package of cookies afterwards, Because we have the same blood type, I could donate an organ, should he need one. Now, when I know I’ve slightly annoyed my dad, I’d (jokingly) be like, “I’m sorry, Daddy. Want a kidney?”

  80. I’ve always wanted to know what my blood type was. As you said, most people don’t know something like this. I got interested in it when I started watching anime way back when. Like K Dramas and such I would always hear it mentioned in anime and never really understood why. When I heard it was a characteristic thing my reaction was, “Ooooooh, so like zodiac signs!”

    I feel like my zodiac sign really fits my personality, I’m a Cancer. Till this day I have not found out my blood type, I guess its been laziness. I would say my personality leans more towards the A type though. I really want to know what it is now.

  81. its funny that you did this topic because me and my mom where talking about blood types because of a radio commercial asking for people with O type to donate.

  82. I am a blood type O but I act literally halfway in-between an O and a AB. I really am quite mean about my opinions and tend to not give a Honey Badger about offending people and I don’t care for superfluous conversing, but i also love organizing things and am a total workaholic and I always throw myself into things and I never forget. So I am the NU ABO, but that’s not possible for a legit blood type. Plus, if you ever have kids, they won’t have the same blood type as either of you. They will be A or B.

But, given what I know about genetics I think there should be subcategories for A and B. ‘Cause they could carry an O allele, like my Mum. Oh, I be nerdy <3 Also, I couldn't find the whole song (Japanese artists/companies seem to have an aversion to youtube), but this Zoom In [NEWS Koi no ABO] is a song about News blood type too!

  88. I was born in Korea and definitely blood types are a big part of society and media in general. It’s not as big of a deal in North America because you’re not told your blood type when you’re born here (I heard it’s for patient privacy and like if you had an affair and the baby is not the daddy’s or something LOL it would become really obvious with blood types). In Korea a baby’s blood type is given when its born or you find out in elementary school through health checkups I think. I remember when I went to 1st grade in Korea we all had to do health checkups at school.

  93. Aww man! I’m blood type B (B+ to be exact) and now I the mystery is solved as to why I suffer from random bouts of a-hole-ishness! Haha!! I kid. I agree with most of the things you said about B’s. I do get bored VERY easily and am always looking for challenging things to do! I was actually reading about this a few months ago, because I had some Korean penpals that would ask my blood type (which, at the time, I thought was VERY WEIRD) and after i told them, they basically stopped talking to me! I was taken aback!

    After some research, (why all the B hate??!!) I found this online and bookmarked it to knock out some of the dings to my Blood type self-esteem: “Blood type B’s are said to enjoy life and are passionate, wild and active. They can be creative and optimistic and have a ‘let’s go’ attitude. They love animals and are passionate about the people and things that they hold dear. They can have an individual and independent nature and don’t care about what others think of them. They can laugh in failure’s face and have a bright and liberal way of living – however this can cause them to have enemies.” There were some negatives to this, too, but I’m not even going to talk about those, hahaha!

    In western culture, I’m a cusp baby (Libra/Scorpio) and I fit a lot of those qualities too. And in the Chinese zodiac, I was born in the year of the Pig (a Water Pig to be exact). When I was younger I used to think it was lame to be a pig? Why couldn’t I be a tiger, or a bear, or leopluradon or something?? But I take pride in being a pig, now. Oink freakin’ oink oink man! It’s amazing how there is a bit of truth in everything!

I used to joke around and say that it’s because we are smart (As in school) and royalty :P The description you gave fits me pretty good: I’m in introvert, I like rules and guidelines, model citizen, I am very polite (Canadian ><) and don't like conflict. I'm very cerebral and "brain-centered", but I can take decisions. Also, I have some characteristics from the other blood types (a little bit of AB for being antisocial ^^'). That was an interesting video :)

  96. What’s really interesting is when you try applying both your blood type and your astrological sign…I am O (I know because I was born overseas to a military dad) and a Virgo….Talk about two very different personality characteristics (with some overlapping)!! And yet given certain situations I am both. I think I tend show of my “Virgo-ness” when I’m dealing with new people and new situations, but the O blood type comes out when I am comfortable…

  97. …no clue what my blood type is, though I was talking about blood type earlier today. In a biological/genetics sense unfortunately, no fun stuff for me….evar…
    I find it interesting that you feel you fit blood type more than astrological-ness. I wonder if that has to do with the fact that the astrological chart is about 3k years out of whack so all signs need to be adjusted three to four weeks to the right (ie I, a Libra, should actually be a cusp Scorpio). Doesn’t that make you want to stroke your imaginary beard while you check to see if that fits better?

  99. I am blood type B+ through and through. Actually, I pretty much fit everything to a “T”. Like I am a Leo in the Western zodiac, a Pig/Boar in the Chinese zodiac, and an INFP on the Meyer’s Briggs, and everything they say about all of those is absolutely true about me. I am like the text book version or something, especially when it comes to my blood type. In fact, when I was studying abroad in Japan I used to get a lot of sh*t about being a blood type B. Most of my classmates were able to guess which blood type I was after 5 minutes of talking to me, since I am such an obvious case (or so they said), but half of them didn’t want anything to do with me after they found out T_T I even got picked on by the teachers on occasion, along with the other type B’s in my grade. I mean, not badly, but enough to notice at any rate. It’s true that they really stereotype over there. It’s a sad fate being a B. /cry cry cry Only not really! xD Because honestly being a B rocks, especially when I’m around other B’s. That’s just like a recipe for trouble… or disaster. Or disastrous trouble… In a fun way xD. Regardless of the stereotypes I faced when I was in Japan, I wouldn’t have it any other way. Also, aside from getting bored really easily and being an adventurous charismatic asshole (which I totally agree with btw xDDD), I think Blood type B’s are pretty stubborn and opinionated. Or maybe that’s just the Leo in me…

  102. LOL the comic strip is actually also made into a Japanese Anime too. Also another characteristic about Type A people is that they usually very stubborn. Like if something bothers them, they will also think about it or talk about it. (I am Blood Type A— I also know I am A positive)

    Also Blood O types are very generous because they can give blood to anyone but can only receive the same blood type blood, while AB people are supposedly selfish because they can receive anyone’s blood but can only give blood to AB people.

    But I’m surprised to learn that you didn’t know about your blood type ô_O I know mine since forever, it’s written in my baby-book and if you go give some blood, they actually tell you what is your type. But I guess it makes sense if you don’t know about it, especially if you’ve never been really ill before and never had to go to the hospital, or if your parents were so excited when you were born and they didn’t give a sh** about your blood type x)

  110. Personally, I’ve never really understood the whole blood type astrology but I guess that it’s got as much basis as any other astrology. I think that it is really over used in j- and k-dramas as a character definition though.

    Interesting TL;DR, I think that you have settled into a good rhythm now. I even got it early on Tuesday! ^_^v

    BTW Simon, if you were born on, or before 10:21am (local time in London Ontario on your birth date), you are a Capricorn, afterwards would make you an Aquarius. I’m gonna guess Aquarius, mainly because they make their rules and then stick to them. Greek astrology is really complicated with all the planet positions and what not and it can really affect your personality etc. more than just your sun sign. And no, I’m not into this but my Mom TOTALLY is so I have seen all the books, etc. to look stuff up.

    all koreans go to the dermatologist… most of koreans do have really good skin but if one pimple appears they pretty much go as soon as it appears. For other koreans who dont have that nice skin they probably go on a regular basis. Also a lot of koreans get freckles ( some more than others ) and in korean standards thats a no no. So for that reasons they go to the dermatologist to get ipl lasers. And going to the dermatologist in korea is much cheaper then the U.S..

Everyone knows their sign though, it´s not that hard considering it´s based on the day you were born… I´ve never encountered horoscopes in a media before though, not in TV or radio, sometimes in a magazine (the really girly ones) and even then it was just a bunch of vague nonsence… We generally lack any kind of distributing people into categories given something they were born with, now that I think of it…

  121. Does having a recessive O allele in your blood type affect blood type personality in Korea?

    For example if your father was blood type O and your mother was blood type B and you were blood type B you would have one allele for B (the dominant) and one for O (recessive). Would someone who has a BO genetic expression differ in their blood type personality than someone who has a homogeneous BB expression?

    Thanks!

    3 years ago
    • Genetically- having a recessive O doesn’t make your blood cells any different from someone who has two B alleles- your cells will have the same antigen. So, if we assume the blood voodoo is being driven by the antigens, then no, there would be no difference. All having an O does is give your child a 50% chance of not inheriting the B allele from you.

    • I can’t say anything about living in another country and assimilating but if you have the talent and really really want to go for it you just have to try. Ballet dancers all over the world have thrown themselves into Russian or French companies and I’m sure they have had issues with assimilation and language and such as well but they do it. Show business is always a tough go of it though. Junsu has had foreign dancers in his videos before there are probably others as well. A long time ago I wanted to be a dancer too but now it’s just for fun for me. Work hard and good luck!

    When I was in college, I did find myself the head of group projects a lot, but it was always because no one else would pick up the reigns and organize the project. (I was older by about 8 years and impatient to get things over with so after about 30 minutes of waiting for someone to lead, I’d step in and mom everyone) but other than that, I prefer to stand back and let someone else be in the limelight.

If I dont know the person I wont talk much …or then I will overtalk to hide the fact that Im shy lol. I dont like party. Im pretty calm. Im not a workholic person but Im quite passionate in what I love. ( Talk me about Japan or my favorite Jpop duet group and I can speak no stop for hours ). I also have the ”I forgive but I dont forget” side XD. So I guess I only have the ‘bad side’ of the O ???

    Anyway, my favorite jpop group made a song about bloodtype years ago. I remember finding it so strange XD ….( Koi no ABO ).

  135. what about blood types like B+ does that matter at all??

    3 years ago
  136. hhmm.. I’ve always found it interesting how some they belive so much in the blood types.. (well or in horoscopes for that matter). But I gotta say I’m more keen to belive in what the astrological signs tell about a person than that what blood type you are. I mean in relation to blood types there are only 4 types (or more if we have to include whether it is positive or negative.. but in other words 4 in general) soooooo does that mean that all those countless people around the world are divided into only 4 cathegories… I’m not saying that 12 cathegories is much either but still.. if I had to choose, I’d prefer the Astrological signs
    Anyways, I’m also AB- and I can see myself fitting some of the charasteristics you guys mentioned but regarding others I’m not so sure really, the same goes for my sign though, I agree only about some of the stuff they say about it.. although, of course there wouldn’t be such a thing that grasps all you personality.. I mean that’s what makes us different ;P

  138. Blood types makes me remember U-kiss… a long time ago, when Alexander and Kibum were still part of the group, they did a show called “U-kiss Vampire” based on their blood types and it was HILARIOUS! Also, Mblaq’s fans are called A+ because all the Mblaq members are blood type A… this stuff is really part of korean culture….
    although I’m blood type O, I’m introverted but I really like organizing events and I always give my all in everything I do (actually only if I like what I do…)and I don’t get angry easily but when I do… even the devil gets scared, lol joking (or not), :/

  139. I find it interesting that my blood type O and my zodiac sign (Leo) seem to fit perfectly with one another, however I’m like the complete opposite, I’m very passive and introverted (also very lazy and like to procrastinate) more of a follower than a leader. though I can be very unforgiving and apparently scary when angered so maybe there is a tiny truth in all of that stuff.

    Did you know that there is a I think it’s a Korean comic strip? RealCrazyMan’s blood types comic.
    It’s about the blooddtypes. They give situations like when it’s Christmas and they explain on a very funny way how the different bloodtypes would react on that situation.

  150. Also, to comment on your comments on Western v. Eastern, I will confirm
    that pretty much everyone in America knows their astrological sign, but
    no one I know actually believes in any of it. For example, I know that
    I’m a Scorpio, but that means absolutely nothing to me. One of my
    friends always used to say things like, “I dunno! I’m a Gemini! I can’t
    decide!” when we were in high school, but it was always jokingly. I also
    had a teacher that would use star signs as an icebreaker/conversation
    starter. None of us actually put any kind of trust in horoscopes,
    though. I tend to roll my eyes at people that actually read horoscopes
    for real — they’re just generic statements that you can MAKE true if
    you want to badly enough. You know, self-fulfilling prophecy.

    On
    the other hand, I have a chronic illness and have to have my blood drawn
    at least every six months, and it’s been this way for several years. I
    still have no idea what my blood type is. When I went to Japan, everyone
    asked me what my blood type is, and I just shrugged and said, “I don’t
    know!” which was always met with shocked faces.

  156. Wow, if Simon is an AB, that just boosts my favoring to ABs. They seem like my type XD

    3 years ago
  157. It’s also interesting to me to compare/contrast the bloodtype stereotypes with those that exist in Japan. For example, ABs are INCREDIBLY stigmatized in Japan because they’re seen as “unpredictable,” “eccentric,” and “opinionated,” which are disagreeable traits in Japanese society. You guys mentioned that Bs are stigmatized in Korea, whereas in Japan, they’re seen as very laid back, go with the flow kind of people that tend to be charismatic and make good leaders — which is good in Japanese culture.

    But the one thing I’d really like to point out is the irony of Asia’s obsession with bloodtype personality traits. Did you know that the original research done into bloodtyping was actually a racist effort to prove, biologically, that Asians were all of a certain bloodtype, and thus inherently inferior to Europeans? Yup. True story. So actually, yes, the descriptions were all completely biased. Now, from the original researcher’s point of view, they were biased toward his particular race. Now it’s interesting that they’ve taken on a life of their own and completely different bloodtypes are viewed as favorable/unfavorable based on the culture of the viewer.

    • Interesting Lynnette… can you recommend anything further to read on it?

      3 years ago
      • Okay, so I mixed it up a bit, haha. Blood-typing was originally used by Nazi Germany to perpetuate ideals of “pure blood” and racial supremacy. It was also used in Japan to racially stereotype Taiwanese people during Japan’s occupation of China. Once blood types were medically discovered, they were immediately hijacked by people trying to make it into a racist comment on personalities/violent tendencies. You can read more about it by Googling “Blood Eugenics,” or simply “Origins of blood type stereotypes.”

        Here’s an interesting article from a German website: http://www.spiegel.de/international/world/how-german-blood-purity-research-advanced-medical-knowledge-a-902865.html

        And here’s an interesting article about blood type culture in Japan: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-20170787

        And also an article on a Korean blog about blood-type stereotype: http://blog.korea.net/?p=5911

        Ultimately, all books that have been published regarding “personality traits” based on blood-typing were ALL written by people with absolutely NO medical background.

    • Side note: Did you ever watch that “U-KISS Vampire” show? Hilarious. They would divide the group up by blood-type and put them in weird situations and analyze how they reacted. Of course, I’m sure the editors skewed it to make them all perfectly match their blood-type descriptions, but it was still entertaining, nevertheless.

      3 years ago
      • I watched that a while back. It was really entertaining. Like you said, I’m sure they were told to play up their O traits or A traits or whatever. Dong-ho even hinted at that (I don’t remember if it was in the show or somewhere else), I think, cuz he got some backlash for being such an obnoxious B type, and he was like “guise, you know this is a variety show, right?”

  159. hmmm Japan also puts a lot of stock in blood types for fortune telling etc and the run down is largely similar, but with A being more of a negative thing [too straight-laced, serious, kind of OCD, a total glasses character in a way] and B being less negative [creative, go at their own pace]. i think that AB is still quirky and O is well-liked, but… i’m not super familiar with this stuff.

    I literally have the attention-span of a burning match-stick, so yeah I get bored easily, and tend to search for things to keep me busy. Which also means that I AM busy a lot, I work a lot and will be doing multiple things at once.

    • Koreans eat SOOOO much fried food. Fried chicken especially is really popular, often there are multiple fried chicken places in just one building. Fried food is really rich for me so I didn’t eat it too often in America but in Korea I don’t have much of a choice. If my coteachers or boss want to go somewhere after work it’s usually a fried chicken and beer place.

      I do see plenty of Koreans with skin problems as well, one of the Korean teachers at my school had lots of skin trouble… she recently got her face lazered though, face was really red when she came to work but it’s starting to look normal again.

      3 years ago
    • Not tanning is true, but the not eating fried foods isn’t. There is fried chicken everywhere in Korea, plus a lot of street food or easy to make food is fried, like dumplings or any sort of on-a-stick food you buy from a street vendor.

    • It means that if you are Rh-negative and your partner is Rh-positive and you make a baby- you will probably need to get shots at some point in the pregnancy so you don’t develop antibodies against your potentially Rh-positive child.

      Odd really, that this is the only antigen that would have an actual, physical bearing on a couple’s “compatibility”, and it isn’t included in the “blood astrology”. It might be that it is just really rare in Korea to be Rh-negative. It is more common in some other populations.

  188. What really surprises me about blood types being a popular topic is… That negative and positive never comes into it!! I’m B- and my sister is B+ and of course we have a lot in common (being sisters, I guess), but we are also very different. VERY different. Do Koreans just ignore the + and – of their blood types?? Seems such a great opportunity to go into more depth of character! Darn it, Korean Blood Type Personality Creators!

    Also, isn’t it true that you’ll inherit certain blood types depending on what your parents are? So therefore… COULDN’T KOREANS (and other countries believing in blood type personalities!) MANUFACTURE THEIR IDEAL BABY… By getting a mate who will create said blood type when matched with them?? That would make an interesting k-drama… O_o

    3 years ago
    • On inheriting blood types, yes you inherit, so it should be possible. But if your parents are positive blood type, there’s a chance the child will be negative blood, and a negative blood type parent can ONLY give birth to a negative type child. If you or I (I’m A-) get pregnant with a positive blood type baby, our bodies will attack it and either it will kill us or we will miscarry. A negative blood type cannot give birth to a positive blood type baby.

      • I am a bit late, but as a Mom I thought I would add something. I am O- and when I was carrying my son (16 years ago) the doctors spoke to me about the problems that COULD happen if I didn’t have 3 shots of what is called RhoGAM. You get a shot when you are typed as soon as possible in your pregnancy, then another in the middle. The last one is when you give birth, but ONLY if the baby is a positive blood type. If the child is negative then no shot is needed. The fist two shots protect the child inside the womb from your negative blood, the last one is to protect future children because any antibodies made from “red blood cell spill over” will affect a positive baby in later pregnancies. Hope that helps!

        3 years ago
      • Sorry but i would like to add something here. It is ENTIRELY possible for a negative type to give birth to a positive type. My mom is O- and my dad is B+ and i’m like my dad B+. It’s true her body was trying to fight me developing and tried to abort me but doctors caught on really early. My mom had to take medication to stop her blood from attacking me and had to take them everyday. She tells me it was a daunting task and there were chances it still might not work but she decided it was worth it. So i’m am good proof that it is very possible if you have good doctors.

        I just wanted to share this to show it was possible ^^;;

    • That would be an interesting kdrama.. However, like Simon and Martina said, some people don’t believe in the blood type stuff. There’s also always the possibility that the person may not get all the traits that are associated with their blood type. I only identify with most of the ones for my blood type.

    • It makes sense because in Korea the Rh-negative phenotype is rarer than in almost any other country on earth. Less than 1% of the population of Korea is Rh-negative. Compared to, say, Canada, where it is just less than 15% of the population is Rh-negative.

  192. I’m type 0 and personally think my personality match AB type more. I don’t think things like blood type, horoscope or eye color (I’ve seen sth like if you have blue eyes you’re like blablabla…) or your hands shape and this line thingies. Personality is something much more complex thing and there are many different things that have influence on us, especially during childhood.

    And come on judging people by blood type is a rude thing!
    O my god! you’re *insert blood type”! Go away!

    It’s silly!

  194. I have absolutely no idea what my blood type is. It’s either A or O, but based on what you guys said I think I fit AB best in the “not giving a shit about what people think.” But then again it might be A because I don’t share my opinions for the same reason i.e If I don’t care what people think, why would they care what I think? Agh, I’d like to find out though~~ In school the blood bank told us “Once you hit 18 you can’t find out your blood type unless you donate blood.” so I was like “Screw you!” but that’s probably not true lol (I’m not eligible to give blood anyway I don’t think)
    I was born on a cusp too! But of Libra and Scorpio and to be fair after reading about those personality traits they fit me to a T but I don’t really believe a star sign dictates how a person is. Interesting tl;dr! I enjoyed it a lot :D

  195. I found out my blood type when I donated (I found out I was + then, since both my parents are O, so it would be unlikely for me not to be). I am blood type O and nothing like the description. I share more with A and AB than I do O. Like, I am super introvert, so more like A, but I can be an asshole too. But yes, no one ever would call me extrovert or the life of a party. Unless that life is growing wallflowers.

    • From what I’ve read on blogs about this topic no it doesn’t play into it at all. The +/- comes from the Rhesus(Rh) blood group system which is just a series of antigens. One of things it decides is what blood you can receive if you required a blood transfusion. AB+ is the universal receiver, o- is the universal donor.( I’m A-)

      3 years ago
  202. I really identify a little with all of these. I’m A positive, and I do make slower decisions, but only when they are super big decisions that costs lots of money.
    Other than that, I really identify with O mostly, and a little with AB.

    I wonder. Does being positive or negative have any influence on this. Such as A positive, or O negitive? =]

    In Romania, before being able to get married, you have to get a medical certificate, and one of the mandatory check-ups is blood type. I guess that is not the same in Canada

    3 years ago
    • Actually, blood tests used to be required in Canada to get a marriage license but that stopped sometime in the 1980s I think? Other people here have said that it was to protect against “blue baby syndrome” (my husband was a blue baby but he survived – lucky for him because they didn’t have a treatment for it back in the 70s but his mom couldn’t have any more babies for this reason) but the MAIN reason was actually to protect against (accidental?) inbreeding/incest. I mean, if you have to get a bloodtest, there has to be a reason to fail and not be permitted to get married, right? The reason was inbreeding. I don’t think that it was so much a “oh noes! we must keep our genetics strong!” kind of thing, more that so many kids were displaced and moved around during the 2 world wars that you might lose track of, or never know, of siblings/cousins/parents/children you had out there and since genetic sexual attraction (look it up, it’s a thing) is really difficult to resist, well, it was more likely than you think back in the day. People felt more reassured than intimidated by the testing I think.

      • I guess it’s done because parents should know their Rhesus – it could be dangereous if Rhesus of a baby conflicts with its’ mom’s Rh.
        I dunno if it’s mandatory in my country tho (med. certificate, I mean)

        • In the U.S. they check the mother’s blood type when pregnant (If they don’t already know it) and the baby when it’s born. If the mom is Rh negative they usually get the medicine they need once when they are pregnant, and then when the baby is born, if the baby has a Rh positive blood type, they get another dose.

      • in america the blood test thing used to be mandatory as well. there is a building in my home town that still has “marriage blood tests done here” painted on the wall. the tests were to check for blood type compatability and Rh factor compatability because these incompatability can cause complications with pregnancy. today though these tests arent required b/c these issues can be addressed medically.

        3 years ago
        • What is interesting, Colorado (a U.S state for those of you who don’t know) is actually making it mandatory again, it’s basically a test for AIDS. Another thing that they require for that is that if it is your first time getting married you have to take a mandatory marriage counseling class. (this also applies if you are on your third marriage)

  205. I find it hilarious that like you guys, I find it weird that the description seems to fit me so well – or, maybe not necessarily my perception of me, but that which I’ve heard comments about from other people. That being said – I’m type A and I’m a GIANT hermit. I’m doing my MA so I must be a pretty decent student, and my friends often tell me I’m too nice and passive. Oh, and I’m TERRIBLE at making decisions… so yeah? As for whether that means I only seem to have good qualities… I’m not so sure. While I can’t speak about their blood types, just about everybody I know that doesn’t like to upset people and over-analyze things tend to have a lot of anxiety and a super self-critical. I guess what I’m trying to get at is maybe even though it seems like they’re traits aren’t negative from an outward perspective, they can be negative when viewed inwardly? I dunno… that’s probably bull but yeah.

  211. Great question. Soo Zee told us some interesting stuff about her dermatologist and how her friends go to dermatologists. Hmm. Sounds like a good topic :D

    3 years ago
    • Yes! I agree with this topic! Cause Ive read few things about plastic surgery/dermatologist in korea where they put different charges for foreigners. I remember that Ive read somewhere, i dont remember whats the website is, but basically it says that when you go to do a plastic surgery in korea, you have to pay more expensive rather than locals and then, its not the famous doctor who’ll do the plastic surgery for u, it’ll be someone else. i was really freaked out when i read those! i would sue the doctor if thats happened to me tho. Anyway, does that apply to dermatologist as well? Its kinda … i dont know whats the right word to put in, but, do koreans generally have good skin or its just that their dermatologist are really good? or maybe their lifestyle-like what they eat and blabla. haha, im writing an essay now!

    • Super agree – there’s a couple of guys in certain groups for example, Kai from EXO and Maru from C-Clown that people point out as being dark-skinned and often make fun of them.

      Kai’s even said that he’ll try to become paler (which broke my heart as someone who is naturally dark-skinned Mexican)
      Maru’s said that his dark skin is beautiful tho and he intends to stay dark because he is super handsome so why should he change? (go, go maru!) But there was comment from one of his own band members that when they first met him, they felt like maybe they couldn’t trust him or they were apprehensive around him just for being dark-skinned.

      So what’s up with this point of view?
      We all know the old way of thinking that to be light-skinned meant one was rich and could afford to stay out of the sun but dark-skinned people had to work under the sun and tan, so they were poor but why does this white-skin-is-beautiful idea still persist?

      3 years ago
      • Korea went from a third world country to a first world country about thirty years ago so traditional views are still very relevant. No one goes through the thought process of ‘oh their white skin makes them look like they have the luxury to stay inside,’ but that is (one of the) the subconscious reason.

        3 years ago
        • yeah, i mean, i know /most/ people don’t consciously think that sort of thing but they do insist that white skin is more beautiful or attractive than dark skin.
          This leads many to see themselves as ugly or unattractive to others, leads to low self esteem.

          Like I said there was even comment that people feel apprehensive around dark skinned people who /are/ Korean. Do they feel similarly around dark-skinned people who are of a different race/nationality?
          Would Koreans trust a white person more than they would a Mexican? A black person?

          This sort of thing makes me really sad that they aren’t even comfortable in their own skin (and I’m just talking about skin-color, aside from all the dieting and plastic surgery)

          All skin-colors are beautiful~

          3 years ago
        • Hahah self-esteem is definitely an issue in Korea especially for youths, but they handle it differently. If you have a problem with your appearance you fix it rather than accept it. Not saying that that is right or healthy, but it’s different than how westerners see the issue.
          As harsh as it is, Koreans do feel a bit more uncomfortable around those with darker skin. Most of the country is made up of the same ethnicity and when Koreans were exposed to foreigners they were usually white American troops. But this is changing thanks to the web and globalization.

    • I would love to see a TL;DR. I noticed that in dramas EVERYONE seems to be obsessed with facials. Even the men and “tomboy” girls will still put on those disposable face masks. I always wondered if it was product placement or pretty everyone and their Dad are super conscious about how their skin looks.

      3 years ago
      • On the same note, what are the most popular Korean facial products/brands? I recently just purchased what I’m guessing are department store quality Korean skin care products while I was in Japan (Korea town). However, I’m curious what are the most common/trusted brands for Koreans. I’m told Koreans (men & women) wear on average 10-20 products on their face every day. Also, any mention of natural skin/hair care products would be appreciated. For instance, so and so’s great grandmother swears by washing your face with coconut oil, or ___ is a popular organic product. Thanks!
