    1. Translations
    2. I think the proper term is “Japanophile”, but I’m not sure if everyone knows that. There is “Anglophile” (someone who like English, US culture) And I believe “koreanophile” might be one, but I’m not sure And weeaboo and koreaboo are offensive terms, but some people ARE koreaboo/weeaboos. Koreaboo (korean) and weeaboo (Japanese) is a person who is OBSESSED with the korean or Japanese culture. And I mean like.... - trying to act like there favorite idols or anime characters - “look like” a korean person or Japanese person/anime character. - rejecting their own culture/nationality and being absobred in korean or Japanese culture (mostly music and anime) -identifying as korean or Japanese -listening exclusively to Korean and Japanese music. (I mean their playlist is like 90% korean or Japanese) - liking ONLY things that are korean/Japanese (Sometimes I find myself listening to korean/Japanese/Chinese music or watching videos about culture, or watching shows/movies a lot so I brainwash myself with American music. I don’t want to be called a koreaboo or weeaboo)
