YourKoreanDad is wholesomeness personified

Meet Nick Cho, an endearingly wholesome internet father figure. Cho is the person behind the 1.8 million-follower YourKoreanDad TikTok account, where he posts videos of himself doing various lighthearted activities with an off-camera child: learning how to longboard, making a gingerbread house, and preparing meals. He also talks openly about how it's okay to express feelings, and that it takes courage to ask for help when you need it. In an interview with Inside Edition Digital, Cho discusses his experiences growing up with racism as a Korean-American, his nurturing and inclusive approach to parenting and relationships, and the surprisingly emotional responses he has received from viewers.

He's got the aura and cadence of Mr. Rogers, like a Mr. Rogers for Gen Z

Uhgh. Being estranged from both parents, that earnestness that my existence could matter causes onion ninjas.

Thanks for posting this. My husband and I watched all the links posted here last night through a film of tears. I'm making an effort to seek out media that's kind because I just can't take conflict and violence as entertainment anymore, so this and similar videos are welcome and much appreciated. So thank you, hurdy gurdy girl. I appreciate you very much.
