Someone who is obsessed with Korean culture so much they denounce their own culture and call themselves Korean. They usually are kpop fanatics (not fans) or fans of League of Legends or other competitive games popular in South Korea. However there is a line; if someone just likes the music, language and culture they are not classed as a koreaboo.
"That boy over keeps calling himself Korean and all he talks about is Korean things, he's such a koreaboo!"

Someone who is obsessed with Korean culture (not north, but south) and talks about them non-stop. Probably won't see them ever again, because while you are reading this, they have immigrated to Seoul.
Why are you such a Koreaboo! I'd rather you be a weeaboo!

Someone who denounced their own race and calls themselves Korean, genuinely believes that they’re Korean or wishes they were Korean. They may also think that they will some day marry their favourite idol (see also delulu) or may use small parts of Korean in their sentences without caring about learning the language. They could think that all Asians/Koreans are beautiful gods who are above the human race (see also yellow fever).

Not someone who:
-is interested in Korean culture
-listens to Kpop music
-listens other Korean music genres
-watches Korean TV shows
-makes cringey jokes about Korean celebrities
-wants to live in Korea
ect...
“Jackie is such a Koreaboo, she’s American she shouts ‘OPPA’ at random Asian men and tries to look Korean by glueing her eyelids down.”

A non-native Korean who is obsessed with Korean culture to the point where they denounce their own national/native identity and proclaim that they are Korean.

These people typically start off as K-Pop fans, but some Koreaboo's also start off as StarCraft II or League of Legends fans since they are very famous competitive sports in South Korea.

The word "Koreaboo" itself comes from the term "weeaboo"; a non-native Japanese person who is obsessed with Japanese culture.
That girl over there listens to K-Pop and always wear K-Pop shirts. She's definitely a Koreaboo!
