SEOUL - A South Korean millionaire who advertised for a son-in-law has found the perfect man after sifting through 400 responses, a matchmaking agency said Tuesday.
The 78-year-old identified only as Kim began looking for a husband for his 38-year-old only daughter last July, a spokesman for the Sunoo agency said.
Kim, who is worth 40 billion won (S$48.7 million), had specified someone aged 37-42 who grew up in a harmonious family, with a good character and a stable job.
Ten of the applicants were selected for interview.
The right man, a 41-year-old surnamed Lee, met the daughter for the first time last October and they will tie the knot this Saturday, the spokesman told AFP.
"Lee showed little interest in my assets. I also like his being cheerful and magnanimous," Kim was quoted as saying by the Hankook Ilbo daily.
However, a wealthy 49-year-old woman who advertised for a soulmate last May through the same agency has not yet found one despite 390 responses, the spokesman said.
The woman, who is reportedly worth 18 million US dollars, has interviewed several applicants but found none suitable.
