My 10,000th YouTube subscriber

Thank you all!

Can you believe that a couple of days ago I reached 10,000 YouTube subscribers? I remember when I got 5,000 I was very excited and proud, now I’m even more excited.


So today I’m introducing my 10,000th subscriber Matt to all of you!

mattfromyoutubeThis is the message that Matt sent me:

“Hello Maangchi, I am very happy to be your 10,000th subscriber and be introduced on your blog! My name is Matt and I live in Long Beach, California. I am 13 and am in 8th grade. I love your videos because they are easy to use and are delicious!”

I interviewed him through email.

Me: Hi, Matt, when did you find my recipes on the internet?

Matt: I found your recipes when I was watching cooking with dog (lol) and found that you were on her subscribers and I clicked on your channel. I have loved your recipes ever since.

Me: I started cooking when I was very young. Do you sometimes cook following my recipes?

Matt: Whenever I cook I use your recipes and follow exactly what they say.

Me: Do your parents sometimes use my recipes?

Matt: Yes my parents sometimes use my recipes.

Me: Your hairstyle is very unique! It must be very popular these days. Are you going to hair salon to get the hairstyle? : )

Matt: No my hair style is natural I don’t like to use chemicals in my hair I like to keep it healthy.

Me: Anything else you want to talk about?

Matt: I am Korean/French I know its weird T.T
