Korean Blood Type Stereotypes as Told by K-Pop Idols

Have you ever heard of blood type stereotyping? Compatibility? In Korean culture, it’s common for people to ask you what your blood type is, as certain blood types are associated with certain personality traits. Are you curious what the common beliefs toward blood types are?

You’re in luck! We’ve got a comprehensive guide to understanding blood types stereotypes. A GIF guide (Note: All celebrities are shown in the sections of their respective blood types):

Type A

First off, we have Type A. They’re typically shy, which can lead to some feelings of awkwardness…

Although they may not be vocal about it or show it in their actions, they are always occupied or thinking about something.

But don’t let their introverted nature deter you from what they’re capable of because I assure you they are also known to be hard workers and more significantly, perfectionists.

If you look it up, many leaders of popular groups are all Type A!

Type B

Now we have quite the opposite of A: Type B!

Type Bs can often be compared to Peter Pan because they refuse to accept growing up and love to play around!

They’re also pretty indecisive, which can get frustrating at times…

Not to mention they’re hot-tempered and stubborn…

But we love them regardless because they do have a sense of humor and can make us laugh.

Type O

Then there’s the beloved Type O.

They are known for their charm,

and confidence.

But they should really be careful because sometimes it can too much for others to handle.

Type AB

And last, but not least, we have Type AB.

Sometimes known as ABnormal,

and sometimes known as AB Style.

They are often in their own world.

It’s almost as if they came from the stars.

They can have very split personalities. Sometimes like As and aiming for perfection,

and sometimes like Bs, full of cheerfulness and laughs.

It can definitely get confusing going back and forth.

We just have to remember that they’re carefree, unique, and special in their own way.
