Two reasons: Socio-economic status and perceived dominance
1st: Asian women select white men to climb the social ladder, move up in society.
However, that trend is changing as Asian men are being perceived as Doctors, lawyers, Corporate I.T. Executives etc... They bring home as much if not more than white men. Now Asian women desire them. Also, America perceives Asian men as strong providers, highly educated, and more open minded than in the past. KPOP helps to make them sexy and appealing to a broader audience.
2nd. Asian women are starting to come back to their Asian men. They nolonger need to date or marry outside their race for a come up.
It would be nice to see Asian women act more mature when speaking to white men. The high pitched, chronic laughter at jokes that are below average and kowtowing to white men is unattractive to watch. White men’s egos aren’t so fragile that they must be chronically adored. Asian women are smart, strong and can stand on their own without being sycophantic.
