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!"

Koreaboo is someone who does not have korean genes, live in Korea, or in another way are korean, that does basically everything to be korean. A koreaboo often does a few, all, or more than the following:
1. Doing aegyo (Acting cute) randomly in situations that does not call for it. (If you do it sometimes you may not be a koreaboo, don't worry)
2. Mixing korean phrases with english, examples: Hey babe, you're my oppa. Noona, hi! Annyeonghaseyo guys. I SARANG HIM. Saranghae. Kkaepjjang! (If you say a few of these phrases you are not a koreaboo, just don't use them for everything, Thank me later.)
3. CRAVING a korean girlfriend/boyfriend. (You aren't a koreaboo if you happen to have a koren girl/boyfriend but if you will not tolerate dating someone who isn't korean, please stop.)
4. Trying to be korean; like, dressing in traditional korean clothing, doing your makeup to look more korean, etc. (Styles and such do not make you a koreaboo, but don't try to be what you aren't.)

You are not a koreaboo if you are interested in korean culture, are learning the language, liking kpop and kdramas, and other stuff. But if your behavior is strange, please stop, because koreans may find it offensive, weird, or creepy when meeting or seeing a koreaboo because they are often fetishized.
Koreaboo: "Annyeonghaseyo babe!"
Example: "She/he is a koreaboo!"

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
“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.”

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!

A website that posts inaccurate stuff and starts fandom wars in the Korean music industry.
Only thing Koreaboo knows how to do is source from "Netizens".

Koreaboo posted another bullshit headline again.
