About the Blog
Welcome to Annyeong Oppa, one of the Philippines’ leading social media hub for anything related to Korea – Kdrama, KPop, KLifestyle, KTravels and ultimately, our favorite Korean celebrities.
The Annyeong Oppa blog started in May 2017 as an extension of the Annyeong Oppa page on Facebook which has gained popularity since February 2016. It’s been known for its witty memes about Kdramas that give so much feels to its readers. And the rest is history.
In September 2017, the Annyeong Oppa website was relaunched to share more timely and relevant contents about Korean pop culture specially made for the Filipino fans which includes Korean-inspired travels, fashion, food, events and other activities.
About the Bloggers
Anj de Leon (a.k.a. Anj Kalma)
Founder / Chief Content Manager
I am Anj and I started the Annyeong Oppa Facebook in February 2016 to release my inner fangirling feels. I am a Registered Nurse in profession and a big Hallyu fan. My fascination in korean dramas led me to start a page and eventually this blog and the rest is history. In addition, I also love to write and draw.
I manage this blog with Joey and Jess — my long time friends who are big korean lovers too.
Co-Founder / Social Media Manager / Content Editor
I am Joey, a known Korean pop culture lover within my circles. I’m a former bank marketing manager, a part-time professor and ultimately, a fangirl.
In 2018, I was chosen as one of KTO Manila’s WOW Supporters to promote Korean tourism in the Philippines. While in 2019, I started being part of the KOREA.net (Korean govenment-owned website) as one of their Honorary Reporter to promote Korea to the rest of the world. I recently moved to South Korea to study Korean language and I will share my experiences, adventures and learning thru this blog.
Join me and Team Annyeong Oppa as we explore and discover all other things related to Korea.
Writer / Editor
I’m Jess, a Korean pop culture fan of more than a decade. I’m also a part of the Taiwanese drama craze back then. I started watching Korean dramas when I was 12. Then I became a K-Pop fan when I was 16 and the rest is history. I never thought that my passion in writing and my love for K-Culture will be the key to achieved my long time dream which is to go to South Korea. But it really happened! Thanks to the support of my Annyeong Oppa family and fandom friends.
We are certified fangirls of Asianovelas which started during the Meteor Garden (Taiwanese version) era. We were in the same bff circle during highschool days but college life and adulting responsibilities turned us into casual friends with just random “hi” and “hello”. After six years of not seeing each other, we had a reunion which led us to establish this blog.
Meanwhile, we met Jess in 2018 as one of the winners of Annyeong Oppa’s giveaway. She became officially part of the team when she represented Annyeong Oppa last November the same year in South Korea.
What’s our turning point? KDrama and KPop came into our lives. We are all hooked and fascinated by the Korean culture. Through this blog, we will share our feels, adventures, misadventures, recommendations, reviews to anything related to Korea along with our contributors.
