Have you misssed your chance ?
Hundreds seek to wed rich Korean
Hundreds of men have answered the advert on the Sunoo website
Almost 400 South Korean men have entered a competition to marry a businesswoman with a fortune worth about $18m (£11m).
The men were responding to an advert on the Sunoo matchmaking website.
The woman, 49, is described by Sunoo as "elegant, slim, feminine and active" and is looking for a "soulmate".
Eight finalists have been chosen from the 394 applicants, aged 37-49, and include company employees, teachers and bank workers.
"As a business operator, she was too busy to find her husband herself," a Sunoo spokeswoman told reporters.
"The bride prefers average but serious persons to high-flying professionals," the spokeswoman said.
The unnamed woman enjoys sports and travelling, and she wants her new man to have a "warm heart".
"She wants a soulmate with passion for life, who will share the ups and downs of life and can spend time to travel with her" said Sunoo's spokeswoman.
The millionaire plans to interview two or three of her eight finalists each month until she finds her match.
