Tiktok’s ‘Your Korean Dad’ Is the Wholesome Content I Need Today

Bring tissues. You're gonna need them.

Nick Cho from TikTok account 'Your Korean Dad'

Nick Cho is my Korean dad and he can be yours too. Just to clarify, I’m not Korean and have never met my Korean dad. But like 2 million of Cho’s fans over on his TikTok, I have been adopted and am totally ok with it. Lovingly called ‘Your Korean Dad‘ Cho’s TikTok has become a wholesome place I can go to when I need to be reminded of how kind, gentle, and compassionate people truly can be. Also, it’s a COVID-19 escape where he takes you on adventures like trips to Walgreens and on hikes or longboard rides where you hold hands.

‘Your Korean Dad’ is also a place where Cho shares his love for people. He gives out advice on heartbreak, makes you feel seen, and like you’re not alone in the world. Just read the comments on his videos and you’ll see how touched people are by his videos. Also, his enthusiasm for doing stuff with the viewer makes me feel like someone cares even though we’ve never met, and that feeling is something I want to hold onto. So, join the family and watch Nick Cho do mundane and ordinary things that inspire and somehow pull at the heartstrings at the same time. Enjoy!
