    I used some of these apps but couldn’t find the one I’m looking for. These apps showed so many korean profiles but I guess they are not interested in dating / marrying Indians. Also there are a lot of fake profiles and perverts. And unfortunately I deleted my profiles. I guess finding korean guys online is Li’l bit hard.. If by chance any koreans are reading my comment do reply 😂😂
