Meet a Korean soulmate online

Singles will mingle the cross-country way at a special event for Singaporeans and Koreans next month.


A total of 300 of them from both countries will meet online in a match-making event to check out one another's profiles.


Organised by Korean-based match- making firm Couple.net, which opened a Singapore branch at Orchard Parade Hotel in March, the event is from Oct 11 to 17.


Twenty-eight Singaporeans have signed up so far and applications are free.


Its spokesman Erica Oh says with the 'spread and overlapping of popular culture' among Asian countries, she hopes that this web-based event will bring together Singaporean and Korean singles.


She adds that like in Singapore, 'Koreans tend to have fast-paced and career-focused lives nowadays, especially for women'.


'Personalised and online match-making have become an increasingly popular method of meeting people, primarily due to convenience and efficiency,' she says.


So far, 100 single Korean women and 50 men have signed up for the event. All are English-speaking and hold at least a bachelor's degree with an annual income of between $30,000 and $100,000.


The company has also checked the participants' marital status with Korea's family registration records to ensure that they are single, says Ms Oh.


One participant interested in meeting a Singaporean man is Korean-based Kim Jung Ha. She thinks men here are 'good and kind to women', after working for a Singaporean male boss previously.


The 34-year-old secretary to the chief executive of a manufacturing company also does not mind moving here as 'Singapore is a clean, safe and good country to live in with a lot of shopping malls'.


'I find Singapore quite special,' says Ms Kim, who visited Singapore in November last year.


Although there is no background criteria for Singaporeans, Ms Oh says because of the limited places, priority will be given to those with a similar education or financial background to their Korean counterparts.


Singaporean E. Lee, who was already attending Korean-language classes before hearing about the event, has put in his application. It is also the first time he is joining an online match-making website.


The 33-year-old analyst in the legal industry, who earns between $4,000 and $5,000 a month, is open to a long-distance relationship and says the event will be a chance to get to know women outside Singapore.


'Singaporean girls can be quite materialistic,' says Mr Lee, who has had his heart broken by local girls who told him that he would not be able to keep up with their lifestyle as he lacks a degree.


With working hours that usually end around 9pm, he says the online event will also be more convenient for him as he can surf and contact potential matches during his free time.


Already feeling the heat from his parents who have been hinting about his single status, he says: 'Everyone has flaws. I'm just looking for someone whom I can connect with. A soulmate.'
