I'll have to say Koreaboos.

Weeaboos are cringey and will sometimes leave the house for cons and such but the most they do is make cringey ass videos on YouTube, Whereas Koreaboos go outside and crash Korean weddings(Baekhyun's brother's wedding), and I think someone even tried to poison a kpop singer too(a while back). They're fucking nutty as all hell and have no home training.

I don't know a whole lot about the Kpop community, but from what I can tell while weeaboos may be generally socially weird, annoying people koreabos are worse because of their obsessions with Koreans, and idols in particular.

It's super creepy, and while some weeaboos are Asian fetishists I feel like it's a lot less often than with koreaboos.

I always thought weeaboos are worse, because with Koreaboos, at least you like a real person

But after reading some of these posts, I can understand why Koreaboos can be worse. Both have some weird fantasy of the characters/idols they admire. Weeaboos, however, are in love with animated characters. They're not real, so the fact that they can't grasp in reality that well makes me cringe. 

On the other hand, Koreaboos also can't grasp reality, but they literally harass actual people. I went to KCON in LA in 2013, and these fans were CLIMBING ON THE FENCE to see their idols. 

Weeaboos are just weird and smelly. Koreaboos are scary. They're both bad in their own way.

I think Koreaboos are worse now because kpop and stuff is all popular right now. I think the weebs have calmed down a bit and koreaboos are becoming more prevalent now.

I probably dislike Koreaboos more because I am Korean. If I was Japanese, I'd probably be more bothered about weebs. Koreaboos are just really annoying to me. I've seen mild versions of weebs and the worse versions but it seems like all koreaboos are crazy.

I think Koreaboos are worse because a lot of them think they're better than weeaboos so they act worse. There's a slew of koreaboos in my high school, and they harass this Filipino student and call him cute and stuff. I told them he wasn't Korean and they told me he was a tan korean, then proceeded to call me a weeb for having a Hatsune Miku keychain. They just seem more crazy, rude, and cynical. Most of them also seem to be evolved weeaboos who think like "oh i used to be a weeaboo, but now i'm a cool KPOP FAN!1!1!!"

You are so right, most koreaboos are former weeaboos. I think people who stuck to being a weeb have a genuine interest in their weeb activities and they stick with it even though it's no longer "popular".

I second this actually. 
I have met both but I can say what is much worse.
A person who is both of these, they are a fucking nightmare, apologies on my poor choice of words but it's true, they are and I never want to meet another one again.

korweeaboos are the ultimate worst of the worse.

like i dont even understand how you have the time to obsess over one thing let alone two things. 

 

But on a more positive side of things at least all the ugly Koreans and Japanese (looks/personality wise) have a chance to date because of them lololol ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Kind of hard to compare since weaboos tend span a greater age range than koreaboos.  You can easily find weaboos of ages 10 and 40 but most koreaboos are teens/young adults--at least from what I've seen.  I'll take the leap and say that koreaboos are worse just by virtue of commonly fetishizing and/or harassing real people while most weaboos are satisfied with their imaginary pals.  And the fanwork, god--kawaii desu~ vocaloid omegaverse fics are disturbing as fuck but the fact that people write pornographic content about their K-pop crushes knotting just takes it up to a whoooole new level

But on a more positive side of things at least all the ugly Koreans and Japanese (looks/personality wise) have a chance to date because of them lololol ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

 

^^^ Why I'm eagerly anticipating the rise of the Chinaboo; my time will come :alpacawink:

I've mixed feelings with both.

Weeaboos because the disillusioned image of Great Japan (desuuuuu) is unbelievable. I've met a mix of weeb and otaku in some of the communities I'm in, and they're sometimes beyond cringy especially if you're caught in their sight. I've a bunch of horror stories about them. 

Koreaboos. I don't know. For some reason some of them couldn't tell if you're an actual Korean or not, but will approach you if you so much as resemble one. And yes, you will get asked if they can call you "Oppa" orstufflikethat. It's even more awkward if you weren't a hardcore K-Pophead. It's crazy impressive and creepy how they seem to know every damn thing about an idol's life. Lol.

I've been a part of both and I've seen some scary ass shit come from each. I was never huge into Kpop but I did have a period of time where I was really into some of it, but I was a complete weeaboo for almost 4 years :/ But I was more in the closet about it.

I don't fully know which could really be worse, weeaboos heavily range in age but koreaboos are usually tweens and teens, and its kind of like youre one or youre not kind of thing, but oof can they be far more horrifying sometimes. I currently have a friend who actually loves Kpop bands but even shes aware how god awful some people are about it (and she can keep herself sane and Im very proud of her lol) Weeaboos really range on many levels, so its really the extreme weeaboos who are the worst. I know I was one, but I kept it pretty well hidden until I hit the emo/scene phase 2 years in... yikes
