Chinese men are beating Americans in the battle for the hearts of South Korean women.

Chinese are now the ideal choice for foreign husbands, overturning the longstanding first choice of Americans, according to a recent South Korea media report.

The report in the Seoul Economic Daily said this change is on the one hand due to the rise of Chinese men’s financial prowess and on the other hand due to the alluring image South Korean women hold in the Chinese imagination.

The number of South Korean women marrying Chinese men has seen a steady increase in recent years. In 2016, 1,463 South Korean women found Chinese husbands, while 1,377 married Americans, the first time China has overtaken the US. Vietnamese husbands came third.

In 2015, the US edged out China, with 1,612 South Korea women marrying Americans and 1,434 marrying Chinese.
