Despite becoming a viral sensation on YouTube with his skits and food and travel vlogs exploring Vietnam, Phạm first started out as a gaming YouTuber who mainly focused on producing Minecraft-related content. Owing to his charismatic and charming personality, Phạm was able to become one of the most popular Minecraft YouTubers in Vietnam. This success allowed Phạm to eventually diversify his content and become one of the most popular YouTubers in the country.
Phạm did not have the easiest childhood as his father was addicted to gambling and alcohol. This forced his mother to work multiple jobs in order to get through the day and all of this affected Phạm’s studies.
After getting bored of his job due to a lack of required creativity, Phạm decided to become a YouTuber and he currently is one of the biggest entertainers in the country.
