Oh My Oppa!


Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ll know we’ve been celebrating Althea’s 3rd birthday! In our biggest contest yet, we’re giving away a round trip to Korea plus some fun activities for you to do while you’re there. One of our main highlights is a tour with Oh My Oppa, a local touring company that gives you an education, fun tour of some of the highlights in Seoul. But that’s not the best part of it, you’ll be accompanied with a handsome Oppa of your choice!


Ah, so you’ve found yourself in Korea and you’re planning to live out your K-drama dream. What better way than to discover the gorgeous land than with a handsome “big brother” Oppa by your side, giving you a tour like a local? They’ve got a rough pre-planned itinerary that allows you to pick them based on the location you’d like to visit and how you’d like to spend your time (you can even contact them to arrange a customized tour). We’ve picked out some of our favorite Oppas and their activity highlights, and we’ve paired them up with must-have beauty items from Althea. 


Food Fiesta
If you’re down to try all the exotic and delicious food Seoul has to offer, William Oppa is the one for you! His tour includes a walk around Gwangjang Market, a traditional market and haven for Korean street food including DdukBboki, Kimbap and even the famous moving octopus dish (try if you dare!). After stuffing yourselves full, you’ll enjoy a relaxing stroll down cheonggyecheon stream, a pretty place to soak in the culture and a popular hotspot for couples.
Beauty must-have: Make sure you look your best with a longwear lip tint that doesn’t fade even after all the yummy food! The Saem’s Saemmul Water Candy Tint is pigmented and lasts on the lips, plus it’s handy size means it’s perfect for popping into your purse for easy touch-ups!


Scenery Soakers
If you’re down for a light and easy day with good company, take a leisurely ride along the Han River with Kihyun Oppa. Enjoy the breeze and soak in the calming scenery of the river as you paddle along, perfect for those of us looking to have a K-drama moment! He’ll also be bringing you for some light eats, the perfect way to end the day.
Beauty must-have: If you’re going to be riding outdoors under the sun, you’ll definitely want to pack a good sunscreen for your tip. Dr. Frog's Intensive Calming Sun Block is great for all skin types and leaves the skin feeling cool and refreshed when applied. It also has an SPF of 50+, PA+++ and contains soothing ingredients for a healthy, protected complexion.


Shopaholic Express
Shop till you drop with Jin Oppa! He knows the ropes and places, and he’ll take you around Namdaemun market. From clothing to little knick knacks and souvenirs for your friends and family, there’s bound to be something for everyone. You can even ask Jin Oppa what are some of his tips and tricks to getting a good bargain!
Beauty must-have: Keep your complexion fresh and shine-free when you’re picking out what to bring home with you. Having a blotting pact like Aritaum's Pore Master Sebum Control Pact ensures you'll look and feel great even when you're out bargain hunting.


Traditional Traveler
Thinking of taking the traditional route? Be enthralled by Korea’s traditions in architecture, scenery and even clothes with Aiden Oppa. Follow him down history lane with Hue Oppa as you explore the Gyeongbokgung Palace full of culture and traditions, soaking in the beauty of olden Korea. You’ll even get the chance to dress up in an old-fashion hanbok, perfect for that selfie opportunity!
Beauty must-have: Being out and about can dry out the skin, so keep a face mist on hand so you can spritz the heat and dryness away! Refresh your complexion with Laneige’s Water Bank Hydro Mist to keep your skin looking its best. For an extra dewy glow in pictures, spray some on before snapping away.

All these and other gorgeous Oppas are awaiting! Find out how you can win a trip to Korea to get your very own tour with one of the Oh My Oppa guys, as well as enjoy a show with STARPASS here.
