Two sisters found a very interesting business idea while in quarantine that caters to the fanatics of all things Korean in the Philippines. Seeing that there are a lot of K-fans out here, they knew there has to be something that could connect them even amid the pandemic.
GoGo Korea opened in June as an online retail/wholesale shop that sells a variety of items from Korea (on hand or pre-order), which ranges from food, beauty products, fashion, K-pop merchandise, and breast pump products.
One of their special offerings is the ‘Pabili Service’ wherein they take care of looking for anything that a buyer wants to buy in Korea from a link or an image they send, find it for them, and sell it for a reasonable price. This is such a life saver as it saves a lot of effort and time!
A taste of Korea
“Living amidst a pandemic, things weren’t as readily available as they used to. Thankfully, through GogoKoreaPH, we can have a feeling of visiting Korea again through our products. Aside from eating the food that we sell (because even we are addicted to them!), we have also some skincare products that honestly are part of our self-care routine, especially amidst the stressful environment we live in these days. We want our buyers to be able to afford genuine and guaranteed authentic products from Korea without breaking the wallet and feel like they’re in
Korea living the K-Drama life that we often see (and want)!”
They have a business partner based in Korea who is in charge of ordering the products. Because of the threat of the virus, they make sure that its sanitation is being taken care of before shipping to the Philippines.
“We also make sure the contents of the box are quarantined before we open them. In addition, we make sure that our products are clean before shipment.”
Buyers not just save time and effort and are provided with convenience, they too also don’t have to worry as all parcels are being stored safely.
One of their best sellers includes Tom’s Farm almonds which are available in various flavors such as honey butter, cookies, and cream, matcha, tteokbokki, yogurt(Yakult), among others. They come in small and big packs (but really 1 small pack is never enough, am I right?).
In demand brands
GoGo Korea also has famous beauty brands such as Nature Republic, Laneige, Krave, Missha, and COSRX as they are very much in demand and loved in the county as well.
“Many of our buyers love the K-pop merchandise from BT21/BTS! For our mommies, brands like Spectra and Imani are highly sought for high-quality breast pump products.”
Wherever you are, you can surely have a taste of Korea as they also ship nationwide!
