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.

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:
