Koreans are the thinnest among all the people in OECD countries. Fattest people? Take a guess.
In all seriousness, allow the Korean to put it this way. The Korean Father is about 5'10", and used to weigh around 180 pounds. When the Korean was growing up, the Korean Father was BY FAR the fattest person the Korean has ever seen in his life (excluding some people on television.) Then the Korean Family came to America. The Korean Mother one day decided to check out the Big & Tall store for the Korean Father, and soon realized that being big in America means an entirely different thing from being big in Korea. The Korean also vividly remembers when he saw the first 300+ pound person in his life -- and he was totally, totally blown away.
Of course, all of this is more than 10 years ago and there are a lot more overweight Korean people now. But really, America could use a lot of work losing some goddamn weight.
