Our Review Of KoreanCupid

KoreanCupid was launched in 2002 as a way for men from the west to meet girls who are from Korea. It was intended to be a clearinghouse for white men to find Korean brides, but it has expanded to give men from China, Singapore, and Thailand a chance to meet the woman of their dreams. The ladies who sign up for this site are often looking for a man who will take care of them if they move away from Korea, and these girls often come to their men with little to no skills. They have not been able to succeed in Korea, and they need a fresh start.

Members And Their Profiles

Members who make profiles on this site talk about trying to find friendship and love. They are hoping to get to know these ladies, and the ladies on the site will help these men learn what they want in a woman. Some men will marry the First Lady they meet, but others will need to speak to a lot of different ladies before they find the person they are looking for. These members are usually particular in what they say, and they make it easy for men or women to learn what they want. Users do not need to guess when they are reading these profiles.


Fake profiles are not typical on this site because the site monitors all the profiles that they create. They make sure that accounts that are lacking in information or send spam messages are deleted. Anyone who sees a fake account can report it, but most of these accounts get closed within moments of their creation.

How To Sign Up

You can sign up for this site at any time, and it allows you to fill out as much or as little of the profile as you want. You might want to add more information to your profile so that people will have an idea of who you are, and you could upload your ID to verify your identity. Most people with an authenticated ID will get hits on their profile.


The site allows you to sign up using your Facebook account. This is a much faster way for you to validate your account, and it prevents the site from closing down your account. People who do not verify their account after a certain amount of time will need to contact the site for help before their account is closed.

Sending the first message

Contacting members requires that you send hearts. You can send hearts to let people know that you are interested, but you need a premium account to send a message to people that you want to meet. If you’re going to have the freedom to send as many messages as you like, you should pay for premium. Someone who does not pay for premium must hope that a girl will find them interesting.

Users can search the site as much as they want, and they can filter their searches to find the girls they most want to meet. Using the search bar makes it much easier for you to change your searches. You can see girls who have the right build, height, and skills. You can meet girls from certain parts of Korea, and you can meet girls who are in a certain age range.

How To Make A Quality Profile

Making a quality profile is easier than you think. You need to use the site to your advantage by filling out every part of the profile. Answer all the questions. Use a good photo. Let the website show you how to create a good profile, and you will get more hits because girls can get to know you by reading your profile first.

You get the green verified badge on your account when you have filled out your whole profile. You need to verify your ID, and you need to have a complete profile at all times to keep the verified badge. People on the site tend to talk to authenticated users only.

Korean Cupid Android App

The Android app is just like the website. However, you get a few more options that make it easier to use on a touchscreen device. You get:

  1. The heart that helps you like someone’s profile and send them a heart.
  2. A recent messages tab that allows you to see any new messages that you’ve been sent. You are shown how many messages are unread when the tag is highlighted.

Real Life Reviews Of The Site

“I took a trip to Korea recently, and it has been on my mind ever since I got back. It is such a beautiful country, and it is a place that is filled with very nice people. I wanted to get to know more people from Korea, and I thought I might meet a girl who would have the same sensibilities as me. Because of this, I signed up for the three-month membership that allowed me to send messages to anyone that I wanted to at any time. I also wanted to have a chance to get to know people, and I sent endless messages to the people I met. All the people I met were very good at speaking English, and they let me learn a little Korean at the same time. I have been really focused on getting back to Korea, and I have many more reasons to go now that I have all these friends from KoreanCupid. Plus, I met a beautiful girl. I will take on a date when I go back.”
