Many game youtubers show contents by playing games, but there is a special one here. HongGae's 'story telling' content is what we're talking about. HongGae makes the viewers want to play the game by giving out reviews in forms of stories. Let's take a look on HongGae, who dreams to make his own, one and only fun content.
Brushing Off the 'Toughness' and Adding 'Gentleness'
In one of his youtube videos, HongGae shares that he used to toughen up when broadcasting. He was 18 when he first started broadcasting and back then, so many popular BJs were airing with vulgar languages and provocative contents he thought he should do so too. But one day he thought, 'What would my parents think if they see this?' and took a look back at himself and decided to change his style of airing. So he started a clean, general-rated broadcast for his loved ones.
To those who say they miss his 'tough days', he replies by saying "Some people do say it was better before, but I want to show and prove that this channel can grow the way it is
now, in a clean and no-need-to-be-censored way. Hope you come to look forward to it."
HongGae is keeping his promise through his youtube channel and facebook. He no longer airs on afreeca TV. He added on that he wants to erase how he used to do it at afreeca.
His gentle style of carrying the show along with his mid-low toned voice makes the viewers assume him to be in his mid-20s which is true. That's how clean his contents are as a 'nice character'. "Some people think that I'd be really, super nice but I'm just an ordinary early-twenty year old. When people post mean comments on my youtube I call up my friends and ventilate it out." is how HongGae introduces himself as an ordinary guy in his twenties.
A Normal Video That is Viewed '700,000' Times
It hasn't been long since HongGae started youtube but he's already a creator who has a video that's been viewed more than 700,000. It started from a very normal background. "There was a friend who had more subscribers than me and he said that I won't be able to do it. That motivated me to belt out to him that I'll make a video that will be viewed more than 100,000 times, and that video is now viewed over 700,000 times." is what HongGae shared about how it all worked. It was possible through a friend who had more subscribers but nudged him in the wrong way. That's how normal HongGae is. But what makes him special is his dedication in achieving his goals.
What HongGae Says, It's worth Believing
HongGae's ultimate goal is to have the viewers believe in his words. He is planning to keep on creating contents on what he did best since middle school, games. His interest in games isn't the only reason of him being a player himself but the reason he chose to narrate in his contents has to do with his dreams.
HongGae wishes to become a game journalist like movie journalists who critique and study movies. That's why he shares having more fun in narrating than playing games itself.
How HongGae is Creating His Own Way
The background to the success as a content creator from a young twenty-year old is from the preparation and character. HongGae starts from searching. He looks into many opinions of users and files of many cases through wikipedia and more subjective and objective materials on the web.
The next part he focuses the most is his script. His clear pronunciation and diction throughout the show is one of his signature as a broadcaster. "If you look through my videos, although I may talk slow, I don't get stuck. I read over the scripts five times to check if the sentences go along and I care a lot about my pronunciation." is how he shared his way of working.
My Power Starts from Here
So what would HongGae think on what he has, as a one and only? He thinks his power to 'create the viewers to keep interest and stay focused even on a same story.' is it. He changes background musics and the tone of talking to keep it interesting even for one video.
Another character he picked about himself was his easy-to-listen voice. He tries hard not to stutter and cares about his pronunciation and the quality of his narrations are superb.
Game creator HongGae is beloved for his clean contents. All the love probably were drawn to his heart of enjoying his job. How about trying HongGae's magical stories of games tonight?
