It’s not hard to imagine getting bored or even lonely as a foreigner living abroad. With major social media apps today, some of these apps may be unknown to the foreigners’ community in Korea. There are Korean social media apps to meet people, make friends, socialize, exchange language and culture and even date in Korea. Some require absolutely no Korean proficiency and unfortunately for others, you need at least a beginner level Korean efficiency to use some of these and for those who do, we compiled a list of chatting and social media apps in Korea for you with direct download links. For a list of other useful apps in Korea, click here. Happy socializing!


Simply put, this app is a platform for language exchange. Many Koreans and foreigners use Hellotalk to meet new people, exchange culture and language, make friends. Asking for dates is highly frowned upon on Hellotalk and could earn you a lifetime ban although that hasn’t stopped some people.
Language – English and Korean


Vingle is a less famous (among foreigners) Pinterest-esque Korean social media app. You can join communities or make your own, make your collections of pictures, gifs and videos, leave comments and send direct messages.

Another widely known social app among Koreans. With Hithere, you can write a status, create picture albums, post as many pictures as you want, leave comments, and send private messages. With over 5 million downloads, Hithere is increasing in popularity and it’s the most downloaded app on this list.
Language – predominantly Korean but you tend to bump into a few people who speak English from time to time.


Perhaps the weirdest and most controversial app on this list, 영톡 is infamously known as the “hook up” app in Korea. According to Koreans, over 90% of males and females on the app are simply looking for sex. But of course, it doesn’t come without its downside. You’ll find lots of trolls, pervs, and catfish. As long as you don’t mind all that, or are willing to weed them out(except of course you are into that), chat all the way!

Moci is almost like Vingle. It connects with your phone’s GPS and lets you find people with similar interest around you. It also lets you create and different communities and interest groups.
