Larissa Riquelme, an actress and model who shot to worldwide fame after being shown cheering for the Paraguayan national team during the World Cup in South Africa, arrives in Korea on Monday in search of a potential husband.
During her visit she will go on dates with three Korean men who were selected from 1,592 local applicants. The lucky three are reportedly all at least 180-cm tall and fluent in English or Spanish, and have chosen where to take Riquelme on their date.
According to matchmaking firm Sunoo, Riquelme's first date will be with a 27-year-old employee of a conglomerate, identified by his surname Huh, to the Hongik University area, including a stop in a pet dog cafe.
On Wednesday she will go to Bukchon Hanok Village near Gyeongbok Palace with a 27-year-old man with the last name Eom who works at a securities firm.
Her third date will be with a 31-year-old man, whose last name is also Eom, to Lotte World and N Seoul Tower.
Riquelme signed up with Sunoo through an acquaintance who works at the Paraguayan Embassy in Seoul. She is traveling over 30 hours from the other side of the world in the hopes of finding her true love here.
