  • OP is the acronym for Original Poster. – Cardinal Aug 31 '16 at 10:05
  • OP can also mean 'Original Post'. – Alan Carmack Aug 31 '16 at 10:56

OP is an acronym for "Original Poster". In this question, that's you, 박용현!

OP is used in a lot of online communities to refer to the person that originally created the content that people are commenting on.

As suggested by @Lawrence, OP may also refer to the content itself, not its creator.
