Unlike most other dating apps, this app is not styled to be cute or romantic.The intention is very casual as the app aims to connect single people (hence the name being a combination of ‘single’ and ‘people’), by doing things that they are interested in.While dating apps do exist in Korea, there is no single Korean app like Tinder that is pioneering the dating movement.
Many people can never be quite sure whether they have a "good thing" going on in their romantic life, whether they're single or married.
In the thick of the desires of a dating life, the occasional emotional upheaval of an unmarried couple, and in the numerous stresses and duties that need a team approach in a committed partnership, one can find themselves wishing for there to be just one clue as to whether they are with the right person.
One would assume that dating apps would be huge in Korea for two reasons; everyone is wired into smart phones and ‘couple culture’ encompasses Korean holidays and leisure activity – there is even a day to mourn the singles.
The reality is that online dating services have a mixed response from the public.
The name of the app is a combination of ‘운명’ meaning ‘fate’ and ‘dating’, to literally translate to ‘Fa-Ting’.
