There's A Travel Site That Lets You Rent An Oppa To Show You Around Korea
Hands up if you've ever dreamed of touring around Korea with a handsome oppa by your side! *starts daydreaming*
Btw, in case you don't know what an oppa is, it's a Korean term used by females to refer to an older male. While it can be used to refer to any older male in general, including siblings, the more common use is as a term of endearment for a boyfriend.
If you guys stalk FB 24/7 like we do, you may have seen photos of this Korean travel site being spread around recently
So as the name suggests, Oh My Oppa is a travel platform that allows you to rent an oppa for a day to take you on a private tour around Korea.
The aim is for you to get a better understanding of Korean culture, tradition and history, as well as have a unique non-touristy experience, by getting a local to show you around.
Each potential oppa-for-rent comes with his own tour itinerary that's been personalised according to his interests and specialities. Check out some of the guys below:
1. Raymond's your guy if you love Korean food
2. Or if you want a look at the more traditional side of Korea, go for Ryan
His studies in architecture and interest in history makes him the best guide for a tour that explores Gyeongbokgung Palace and the streets of Insadong, which are known for its traditional architecture, teahouses, and Korean cultural experiences. He'll even help hook you up with a hanbok (Korean traditional outfit) rental.
3. Wanna have a chill day out like the locals do? Joon's got you.
Joon has been living in Seoul for more than 20 years so he def knows the city like the back of his hand. From playing with adorable raccoons at a cafe, to wandering the streets of Hongdae while eating street food, and even getting a tarot card reading, he'll show you how Koreans have fun.
4. You'll literally be in for a day of non-stop fun and games with Jake
According to the site, Oh My Oppa is currently closed but the good news for all of you planning trips to Korea is that they'll be up and running again in April 2018 ;)
