Yeah.. I got your point.

I was saying about seeing and leaving comments on cyworld mini homepages.
I usually use safari for my main browser and only use opera just for looking around cyworld homepages.
Of course I gave up the ActiveX things long time ago. :cry:

I sent a scan of my passport, but I've some friends that have sent their student ID and they accept it. There's actually a lot of tutorials for english speakers that want to use korean cyworld, maybe you can just google it.

I have a cyworld myself even without understanding how I did it... lol... just following tutorials. It's quite useful to keep in touch with Korean friends


*mouth drops open* !!!!!!!!!!!! 진짜???!! Then I am going to try to sign up again! :D :D :D

ㅎI never even thought about looking up tutorials, good call =]

EDIT: 왜요?? 왜요?? I tried a billion times to sign up but I keep getting the "Data error! Please, type the correct information" I don't understand what I am doing wrong.... :cry:
For the contact section they have an example "ex : 82-2-XXX-XXXX" Am I supposed to put in 82-2 in the first 2 boxes? Or the country code and area code of where I live?

Postby frankmx » October 5th, 2008 7:26 am

cyworld is not the only case; nate on, daum, or another korean website, for me at least. i have had problems for join in or have a new account T0T.

i had been asking by one friend & he told me in case of mexican people want a account

we must live in korea like a resident foreingner or be a korean guy....

i think that it would be cool having a korean account for join in cyworld...

but nowadays for me is very hardest!!!

i dunno how T0T....

Hi folks,

Cyworld is not for me because I am a Linux user using Firefox. There's a very interesting post for those computer-interested people about the web in South Korea here:

Definitely check out this article. For me, its the definitive piece on the IE and MS Windows lock in issue.

and
http://shinhwa.biz/forums/showthread.php?t=2579
are two great starting points for anyone looking to startup their own cyworld page. Here's my quickie prep list.

* be prepared to wait and email them constantly - mine took over 45 days to process
* send them anything they want but do so at your own risk - i scanned and emailed my passport and driver's license several times
* when you get your password - do not forget it - it is a pain to get a new one
* use Internet Explorer only to view/edit your cyworld
* get ready to low tech it - cyworld.com is still web 1.0
* get your dictionary out because it's all in korean
* do not sign up for the US version of cyworld - you can't communicate with your friends with the KOR version

joy!
