You may not recognise the name Alex Ho, but there's a chance you're already following @Alexhkf
on TikTok or have seen one of his videos, where he's dancing to popular K-pop songs or putting his own spin on a trend. It's a fact the man himself acknowledges: "People know me as just Alex," he says, nonchalantly.
But with 6.4 million followers on TikTok, one million YouTube
subscribers, and 146,000 followers on Instagram
it's his face that people first recognise—yet another similarity between him and the K-pop stars he's often told he resembles.
At the studio where our cover shoot is underway, his presence doesn't go unnoticed by two
Gen Zers who are excited to see oppa
in person. It's something he's gotten used to and rather than letting social media fame get to his head, it's kept him grounded.
"Honestly, nothing much has changed, my
drive and passion remain the same. But I have a bigger support system now, and being able to receive so much love from my fans truly inspires me to do better," he reveals, when asked about the impact being a public figure has
had on his life.
