Here’s your chance to star in your own K-Drama—well, kind of.
If you’ve always wanted to live out your Korean drama fantasies in Seoul—y’know, take a romantic stroll along Cheonggyecheon Stream, don a hanbok at Gyeongbokgung Palace, or enjoy a cup of iced Americano at Hongdae—you’ll be thrilled to know that you can actually book a handsome, leading man-worthy guy to show you around the city and tick some items on your to-do list with you!
Yep, private tour platform Oh My Oppa offers you the rare opportunity to experience the best of the South Korean capital in the company of an “oppa”—a Korean term referring to an older male, also often used in a flirtatious way.
Launched early last year, Oh My Oppa became an instant hit, especially among women traveling solo or in small groups, who wish to take an authentic glimpse of Seoul through the eyes of a local, all the while experiencing heart-fluttering moments one would think can only happen in K-Dramas.
So, how does it work? It’s pretty simple: Choose among the available oppas, set your “date,” and pay for your reservation (prices start from 70 USD). You will then arrange your meeting through Kakao Talk, a messaging app that will also serve as your main communication channel.
Since Oh My Oppa mainly accommodates foreigners, you need not worry about the language barrier. Their guides are seasoned travelers themselves and are fluent in various languages including English, Japanese, Mandarin, and even Spanish!
Each oppa also presents a carefully-curated itinerary for your walking tour based on his personal interests and favorite places, though you, too, can give him an idea of what you’d like to visit or try in the city—this is your trip, after all!
