Top 5 Korean Dating Sites for Foreigners

Korean women are pretty, cute, sweet, quite attractive and have an innocence about life. they are the best girlfriends to have in the world. If you’ve ever been to South Korea you might have noticed that there are many foreigners walking with their Korean girlfriends in street, especially in cities like Seoul and Busan. Actually a lot of  Korean women want to date a foreign man, most consider it is “cool” and “exotic“ to fall in love with a foreign man. So, dating a Korean girl is usually quite easy for foreign men.

However, before traveling to Korea to find your love, you should resort to online dating, you can browse thousands of Korean females just at your home. You can get to know a potential date before meeting in person very soon, without much risk or time commitment.  But do not to be overwhelmed by access to too many choices,  you should narrow them down and find who is a good fit for you.

Online dating is a number game, a normal response rate is around 1-10% depending on how good your profile is, so do not feel frustrated when getting few responses at first. Just be patient and keep sending out messages until you find the person you are looking for.

Without more ado, here is a list of several popular Korean online dating websites with detailed reviews.

1. Korean Cupid

Korean cupid dating website

Korean Cupid is a well-known website for foreigners to date Korean singles. The site has 500,000+ members and thousands of Korean women sign up everyday. This is a considerable number of members among many Korean dating sites. This website is especially popular among foreigners looking for Korean girls.

You can sign up and start browsing profiles under a minute. With its advanced search function, you can easily narrow down the results. The good news is that it seems there are more women than men on its platform.

The site is free for standard members, you can create your own profile and browse profiles, I personally prefer Korean Cupid as it allows you to see all the profile details without having to upgrade unlike other friend finder site.

With free member, you can only talk with women who are paid members. If you want to contact all members, you need to upgrade to its Gold and Platinum paying members. You will find lots of exciting and useful options available instant chat and video chat. I personally recommend its Gold membership, with just $10 per month, you can enjoy most if its features such as messaging and live chat. And you can contact any member you want.

The site has both English, Korean, Chinese, Japanese, Dutch, Italian, French and other language versions, However if you want to talk with a girl who speaks Korean only, you can user their advanced translation tool.

Though Korean Cupid actively screen for scammers, you’ll still find fake profiles. But it is not difficult to identify fame profiles, those with only one or two attractive  picture posted or poorly written profile tend to scammers, stay away from them.

KoreanCupid also has an Korean Dating App available on Google Play, which you can download and use it on your smart phone after becoming a member.

All and all,  Korean Cupid is one of the best Korean dating sites in existence. You’ll find lots of real local women hoping to meet a foreign gentleman. I highly recommend this site to anyone who is interested in making friends or dating with Korean women.

Pros:

  • It is owned by Cupid Media, a large dating company.
  • Free to register and create your profile
  • Advanced search functions
  • Many Korean women on the sites are looking for foreigners

Cons:

  • Need to upgrade to a paying member to communicate with others.

2. Badoo

Badoo dating app

Badoo is a free and  popular app for both social networks and dating site. It is available on both desktop, Android and iOS platforms. Its members are very active and it is one of the best platform to make Korean friends online.

Unlike KoreanCupid which focuses on Koreans, Badoo is a worldwide site claiming to have over 430 million users from 190 countries. People there are from different countries and speak different languages. But one good thing is that you can find girls from other Asian countries as well.

There are two ways for you to meet others: “Encounters” and “People Nearby”. The “Encounters” section helps you find matched women based on shared interests, while the “People Nearby” allows you to find people in your area who have common interests with you.

It is free to use, but you have limits of girls you can contact in a day. If you want to talk with more girls, you have to pay for upgraded features at about $10 a month. You can buy credits if you want to rank higher and get more exposure.

Most Badoo users are late teens and young adults and Badoo users tend to find a casual sex, hookups and flings, rather than a serious relationship, give it a try if want to have a casual hookup with South Korean women.

Pros:

  • 3 months Free trial
  • Leading Kenyan dating site
  • Free and easy registration

Asian Dating website

Asiandating is probably the best dating site for men who are looking for mail order brides from Asia. Unlike Badoo, it is more of a site for you to find serious relationships, instead of casual hookup.

It has 2.5 million members, making it one of the biggest dating sites for you to find Asian singles. When browse through profiles, I find that there are many members from  Asian countries Indonesia, China, Malaysia, Philippines, Japan, Thailand, and others. There are also many others from the USA, Australia and UK, who interested in finding an Asian love.

Of course you can also find many Korean singles on its platform. Most of the registered Korean girls here can speak at least simple English, the great benefits of Asian Dating is that you can find singles from almost all Asian countries, which gives you more choices.

It does not matter if you do not know how to write and read Korean, the site offers instant translator for platinum accounts.

Though the site has take excellent measures to prevent users’ abuse. However, just like any other dating websites, it is impossible to screen all fake profiles.  You need to be careful of some scammers.

AsianDating supports Androd App but iOS app is not available. It is availalbe in almost all major languages in the world. and its members are mainly from USA, Europe, Japan, Korean, Philippines and China.  Most female members are from Asian countries aged 25-44.

If you are looking for Asian girls for love, the traditional dating methods may do not work. Asian dating is your best choice out there. I highly recommend this site for those who are interested in girls from both Korean and other Asian countries.
