[GUEST] Renting an Oppa for Your Tour of Seoul?


Now that the world is slowly opening up — and we can all agree cabin fever has been at an all time high — people are ready to go out and enjoy the world again. Maybe even do that trip they’ve been dreaming of. Maybe it’s finally time to make that journey to South Korea you’ve talked about, wrote about, texted every single one of your friends about.

Bags packed, ticket bought, hotel reserved, but there is just one more thing you need. A tour guide. But not a normal, large group, flag-following, takes-you-to-all-the-usual-spots-but-doesn’t-show-you-the-real-Korea kind of tour group. Instead, what about a one on one tour with a local guide? What if your tour is planned like a date? Sound intriguing?

Enter the company Oh My Oppa!
