6 Filipino Oppas Girls Go Crazy Over

Korean dramas have won the hearts of many Filipinos for years now. The K-drama phenomenon won’t end anytime soon in the Philippines, for we seriously have a huge fan base here. In case you are not familiar with the word oppa, it literally means older brother of a younger female. But it has been a popular term nowadays because it’s being used as a term of endearment or a word to describe a “hot and handsome” guy.  Girls, no need to look further, for we’ve got our very own oppas! Here’s a roundup of our favorite Filipino oppas:

1John Lloyd Cruz
