Why Blood Groups are Important in Korean Culture?

Krupal Mehta, Mumbai, Maharashtra

Has someone ever asked you what is your blood group other than for formal purposes? I guess not, but Koreans can ask you just to start a conversation or to learn about you. Yes, Koreans tend to predict the personality type from blood groups and vice versa. Koreans do believe that certain personality type comes under one’s particular blood group. Let’s learn about each blood group along with its personalities.

Blood Group A:

According to the Korean Blood Group Personality Chart, people with Blood Group A are sensitive and conservative; hence they are also called introverts. They are uncomfortable in crowded places, and they tend to get hurt easily thus they have difficulty opening their heart or expressing emotions. They may appear cold-hearted, but if you are patient and ready to respect their boundaries; they can be very affable and trustworthy. They are creative, prone to be a perfectionist and inevitably punctual.

Blood Group B:

These people are likely to be independent, optimistic, and outgoing as compared to Group A. They are not afraid of speaking their mind or confronting their opinions loud; hence they can also be called self-centred by some. They are passionate beings and live their life to the fullest. However, sometimes they can be indolent and slothful around the things they are not passionate about. They are carefree and outspoken most of the time. Hence, they can be professed as social butterflies.

They always understand others’ emotions therefore they are often considered sensible and reliable. They are outgoing, expressive, confident, and passionate about the things they do. They are sticklers for perfection and can often be observed as arrogant and over-competitive at times.
