According to the landing page, KoreanDating.com.au is the right place for fans of Korea, or anyone looking for a Korean experience. Furthermore, there is a basic membership, which is completely free. However, there is also a paid membership, which can be quite expensive. For this review, we decide to sign up. But later, we find out that there is nothing you can do as a basic member. Using the chat feature requires the premium membership. The trial membership is cheaper, but part of a subscription rip-off.
Once you sign up, you can enter the site’s members’ area. This is where we first start asking questions. None of the profiles that we encounter, have anything to do with South Korea. It feels like this site makes use of a profile database, which is shared by several different dating sites. Luckily, we can send flirts for free. Flirts are a selection of pre-written messages. These can be sent to start a conversation with any other member.
The paid membership options
We want to write our own messages. But now we find out, that all the messaging features are available only to premium members. To become a premium member, you must purchase a premium subscription, in the shop. All premium memberships renew automatically. This is also true for the trial membership, which only lasts 5 days. It costs you a bit more than a dollar per day. Should you fail to submit a cancellation, it rebills at 52.99 USD per month. This is a lot of money for a dating site that fails to connect you with Korean singles.
Are there any fake profiles?
Subscription rip-offs like this one are often full of fake profiles. In this case, we could not find any signs that might indicate a fake chat scam. The operator even promises not to condone the creation and use of fictive profiles. KoreanDating.com.au is operated by Online Connections Inc, from Plantation, in the United States. You can find out more about our previous experience with this operator, in some of our older reviews.
