Who stands behind Emirichu? Wiki Bio

Emily ‘Emirichu’ Sim was born in New York City, USA, on 27 August 1995 – her zodiac sign is Virgo and she holds American nationality. She is a digital illustrator and a YouTuber, best known for her “Emirichu” channel which she launched on 12 June 2011, and which is currently subscribed to by over 2.2 million people, and counts over 150 million views of all her videos combined.

Childhood and education

Emirichu spent the first two years of her life in New York, then the family moved to Los Angeles, California where she was raised alongside her two older brothers, by their father who was a construction worker, and their mother who worked as a nurse at a local hospital.

Emirichu is of South Korean descent, but hasn’t learned to speak Korean, although she can read it.

While attending elementary school, Emirichu expressed her desire to train in Taekwondo, but her father wouldn’t allow it, stating it is a ‘boyish’ thing, so she then found comfort in drawing and watching anime. As her eldest brother has stated, Emirichu was very clumsy while growing-up, and would even fall from the coach while sitting without a reasonable explanation, but she hasn’t broken a single bone in her life although she did sprain her ankle when she was 12 years old. Her brother has also stated that she is most balanced when wearing high heels, but her nickname is still ‘Clumsy Ox’.

Emirichu attended a local high school in Los Angeles, and while there taught herself to draw on the computer, and how to create animated videos which eventually led to the launch of her YouTube channel. She attended college and during that time worked as a part-time teacher, and spent her summers working as a camp counselor. She graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in 2017.

Career as a YouTuber

Emirichu is best known for the animated videos which she uploads onto her YouTube channel, which are solely animated by her. She became famous on the platform after the video “It’s Not Like I Like You” was uploaded onto the JozCentral channel on 24 June 2017, and has gathered over 30 million views since then.

The song is performed by Static-P, while Emirichu did all the artwork and animation.

The first video she uploaded onto her channel was “League of Legends Champion voice impressions (an attempt)” on 30 April 2016 which is five years after the launch of her channel. The video didn’t gain much attention, but two of her most popular videos today are “Childhood Crushes 2” which has been viewed over 12 million times since 29 June 2019, and “Extrovert Problems (Ft.TheAMaazing)” seen more than 3.5 million times since it was uploaded on 27 July 2018.

She has collaborated with many popular YouTubers, including Wolfychu, Danny Casale, and Sultan Sketches among others, while her biggest inspiration is Arina Tanemura, a Japanese manga artist and an illustrator.

Emirichu is also active on Instagram to which she has gathered nearly 400,000 followers, and has uploaded over 260 pictures onto her account; she is also active on Twitter on which she has over 175,000 followers. She has also tried live streaming on the Twitch platform, but did it only two times before giving up on the idea.


Love life and relationships

Emirichu has been keeping the details of her love life hidden from the public’s attention, and this is normal as she was raised in a somewhat traditional South Korean way. However, on 19 October 2017, she tweeted about wishing her boyfriend a happy birthday by drawing him while he was working. She wasn’t yet popular at that time, and the tweet gathered only 20 likes and two comments but this was the only time that she’s spoken about having a boyfriend. It is believed that the two broke up in the summer of 2018 for unknown reasons and Emirichu hasn’t talked about any boys since then.

However, there are rumors circulating the internet that she is currently in a relationship with another YouTuber, after they met on the internet, and that they have been together for nearly a year now. One of her fans started the rumors but Emirichu hasn’t commented on these.

As of June 2020, she is single, hasn’t married, and doesn’t have children.
