KoreanCupid.com - Lots of Fake profiles

2

Review:
I've looked at this site and its sister sites. Yes there are way too many fake profiles. There may be some actual users but they are few and far between. The owners of the site in the terms and conditions claim copyright on your photos and even admit to using them to create profiles on their other sites. Also the prices are too high. Yes you can join for free, but then you can't do jack shit.

At least on other sites like Plenty of Fish you can actually use the site for free. And there are actual people on there.

Pros:
None

Cons:
Everything

Gilbert does NOT recommend KoreanCupid.com to friends/family

Unfortunately, I have to agree with the above written comment.
I do not know for sure if the profiles are fake or not, only that once I get an interest from someone which I reciprocate, the person never ever replies me back. It happens that the individual who sends me the interest does not even care to view my profile to know more about me, and their own profiles reveal very little of themselves too.
I also noticed that their communicative and language skills are typically on a very low level, no matter if they are Korean or from some other country. I wonder if people there are actually serious, or if they actually exist. The whole thing doesn't seem to get anywhere.
Not to mention that whoever are behind this business, they indeed try to persuade you all the time to upgrade and thus pay more.
I have been on this website for a while, but so far I have not been able to get one single sentence in koherent English or Korean from anyone (apart from "hi, whats up"). How can any person make any kind of bond or get to know better another without verbal contact, messages, mails, etc.?
It does not seem very serious for me.
