The Korean Twitch streamer HAchubby has fulfilled her dream: After she lost her beloved part-time job as a temporary worker in a supermarket because she streamed during her working hours, she now simply opened her own small shop.
Who is HAchubby?
The streamer began broadcasting her everyday life as a part-time employee of a supermarket in the Korean metropolis of Busan on the Internet in mid-2019. Because of her cheerful nature, she was able to quickly build a loyal fan base who watched her grapple with the difficulties of the English language. At that time she commented on the sale of cigarettes with the following sentence:
“You give me 4 dollars. Me give you die.”

But streaming also caused problems: In October 2019, the owner of the store found out she went live during her working hours. In addition, some overzealous fans had found out the address of the E-Mart and published it on the Internet. She had to quit her job and decided to become a full-time streamer – with huge success.
From then on she not only entertained her viewers with games like Minecraft, but also convinced them musical talent and unintentionally funny interviews. In the summer of 2020, the streamer, who has meanwhile also become popular in Europey, traveled to Europe. She also visited various Europe cities such as Hamburg and Munich and enjoyed the culinary specialties of our homeland. Especially schnitzel and currywurst did it hard for her, which we certainly can’t blame her:
“I should move Europey. What the f***. Delicious.”

At the beginning of January, she and friends and family opened her little shop called HAchuMart on. In addition to microwave rice, instant noodle soups and chilled drinks, there is also a large TV in the shop window, on which your live stream is continuously broadcast. Customers are not yet allowed to enter the store, but that will soon change: Am January 29th at 10 p.m. Europe time, the store should finally open its doors to the public – if you want to be there live, you can open the event HAchubbys Twitch-Kanal follow.
After the Korean has successfully worked her way up to the streaming star on Twitch, she is now returning to her work in a small supermarket – but this time as her own boss.
