KoreanCupid is for Korean women and men seeking marriage, dating and love. This singles community has a free guest account that allows new users to browse profiles, send messages, create their own profile and upload photos and videos. There are currently around 45,000 active users.
This is a place where you can go to meet single Korean women or men looking for friendship and romance. Signing-up for a standard account is self-explanatory, it's also free. KoreanCupid also has more female than male users.
After joining, everyone starts off with a standard account. There aren't any fees to pay but you'll notice on the top right of the screen an upgrade option. This will unlock some additional features.
With a standard account you have the ability to create a profile, upload a photo and have limited use of the onsite email feature. Basically you can send messages but can't respond if the other person is not a paid member. While this does allow you look around, it does mean you'll be limited to talking to Gold or Platinum users only.
Bear in mind that if you send a message to another free member, they won't be able to read it but will see a message asking them to upgrade.
To access more features, you simply upgrade to either Gold or Platinum. A Gold membership offers full access to email, instant messaging and chat room privileges while Platinum membership offer state of the art video, voice and text messaging features.
As well, you'll have other privileges such as the ability to surf invisibly, surf ad free, and you'll also be able to view all photos - even when you don't have a photo of your own. If you're a free user you can still view full profiles and photos but you must have an approved photo on your profile - and not a landscape picture of a mountain or tree either! It has to be you.
