Opportunity for Overseas Interview? Suspicious or normal?

Just finished a Skype Interview with some international company last week and received a Whatsapp message from the interviewer a couple of hours ago informing me that I would have to head down to their head office in South Korea for a final interview; expenses paid. (Need to reply to them by wednesday)

I have a few underlying concerns:

1) The company is supposedly legit. But I searched all over the internet for my interviewer and nothing pops up

2) I am a fresh graduate applying for a entry level job - why would they bother asking me to go overseas to interview when they have a local singapore office less than 1 hour away from where i live?

3) I am afraid this might be a scam; with someone using a reputable company's name to lure victims in.. idk la

What do you guys suggest I do?

1) Should I check with the company's local office if this person/job offer exists?

2) Accept this interview and take this all expenses paid interview to go overseas for the interview

3) Do nothing. Act like nothing has happened, move on with life and continue living off my parents and be social bum

P.S: really desperate for a job as i have been mostly jobless since graduating nearly half a year ago.

Thank you all!

If u have doubts, then do option 1. Check with the company's local office if the person/job exist. If u still have doubts after reviewing, then do option 3 but at the same time, apply for other jobs too. U only do option 2 if u got no doubts at all and is confident of getting the job.
