Korean Online Dating

Here is all the things you need to know about Korean online dating culture in South Korea before you start.

  • Blind date is normal in korean culture, usually korean are more open to be introduced or referred by their friends, so there will be more trust in the meetings.
  • Korean Language is necessary, as it might be really hard sometimes for korean to understand or speak english fluently with you, so make sure you can speak at least basic korean language to start.
  • Korean culture is quiet strict and sometimes you might find yourself shocked as koreans felt insulted because of something you do. So make sure you know a little bit of korean culture, things to do and not to do, because you might offense them without even realizing it.
  • Korean Dramas is not real, make sure you have real expectations when you start online dating or plan to do it, because many people disappointed when real life in korea is not like in korean dramas.
  • Motive does matter, make sure you don’t have expectations to do one night stand, sexual orientations or push the relationship so hard as it will really turn korean off, they don’t do that, if you want to do it, go to Korea Night Club, it’s quiet normal to do it there, but not in online dating.

Korea Dating Site


interpals Korea dating site

Interpals is actually not a direct online dating site, but more focused towards finding Korean friends online for multiple reasons in which one of them is for language exchange. However, they also provide the reasons of flirting, dating and romance here. So make sure you try this one as I think this online dating site is the easiest, free and comfortable to use.

Korean Cupid

Korean Cupid is quiet popular in Korea or maybe it’s of the best when it comes to online dating sites in korea. This online dating site is used mainly by male foreigners who want to meet their korean dream girl. If distance is no big deal for you, then this one is for you.

You also can filter the female search by browsing based on your own detailed desire, narrowed down by criteria such as location, education, body type, ethnicity, and much more. However, the downside of this is that it’s not free, yes you need to pay to use their features.

Asian Dating

AsianDating is part of the Cupidmedia network and have a tons of people sign up here. The sign-up process is free, but the site only provide excellent features to premium members.

Downside of this site is that a lot of spam messages coming after you sign up. However, after you finished sign up the by time, you can filter those fake message and focus on real one.

Hi Penpal!

HiPenpal is similar to Interpals other than this one is not like an online dating site in the way of their chat box. This is more like sending email to the person we want to know and that’s why maybe this Hi Penpal is good for those who is patience and have not much time to wait on the reply. As the reply can come in a minutes, hours, or even days, just like emailing to our colleagues and coworkers. 

Free Dating Apps In Korea

Here’s the list of best and free dating apps in korea as list below


tinder Korea dating apps

Tinder is worldwide dating app including in South Korea. Even though you might concern about perverts here, we must remember that bad guy is everywhere, not just in dating apps like tinder, and especially tinder is transforming itself a lot into a social app rather than just a dating app.

What i mean by that is that tinder is now function for matching people according to their common interest and habit.

With the campaign of “Find Friends through Tinder“, it has transforming the app from just dating app into friendship app too.

Hello Talk

datalk korea dating apps

Lately, I using this app, about few months ago and it was quiet good to find a partner and friends. However I use it just to check on whether it really does work to find friends and couple, for me to share with you. So here is my conclusion after using it for a week.

I think it’s quiet limited unless you buy your coin to talk with more people in a day. but it’s really good so that you know people here are not just registered for having fun, i mean actually paid services filtered those freak and other bad intentions.

Also it’s good for you to be patience (if you don’t buy coin), to wait for the next day before you talk with another girl/boy.

GLAM is one of the best and popular korean dating app that even won a title ‘Best Social App’ in South Korea 2017 google play awards.

What makes it unique is that they have ‘tier’ algorhythm where they will match each user with their same tier. Tier is like a user profile made based on many option and elements, thus filtering each tier (group) with it’s own similar interest and desire.

This app also keep your privacy by allowing you to block someone you might know IRL, so you don’t need to worry that they find you out here.


dangyeonsi korea dating apps

Dangyeonsi dating app is actually for korean as it’s using korean language for its app. However, if you have a good korean language skills then you can try this one. The unique things about Dangyeonsi is that you need to not just enter regular information, but also occupation and blood type.
However, for you who doesn’t like to spent money on app or not good at korean, it’s better for you not to installed this because this app required an in-app ticket to message to other person.

The name is “Culture Clubs”, which is actually useful to match up people with similar interest such as movie club, climbing club, study and bicycle club. Good thing is that you can create new club that others can join too.
