9 Essential Korean YouTubers You Won’t Regret Binging

As someone who’s kept very busy during this quarantine, I (along with probably many others) am beginning to run out of Netflix and Hulu options. Due to this unexpected shortage of binging options, I’ve turned to Youtube as a great platform to add to my streaming app rotation.

Youtube is now the second most visited site after Google and over 5 billion videos are watched every single day. There are tons of Korean YouTubers tailored to essentially any kind of video you’re looking for.

Below are 9 of my favorites varying from popular channels with 5.69M followers to lesser known but exciting up and comers. Enjoy and don’t stay up too late watching!
