I Am In Love With This Korean Grandma On TikTok

Good morning to nobody but TikTok’s Korean grandma, @Chunja46.

With the United Nations (UN) now declaring the Covid-19 pandemic the “worst world crisis since World War II,” and with over 855,000 confirmed cases worldwide as of writing, things are looking pretty dicey. And, that’s not even considering the domino effect of recessions this crisis will bring to our economy and the rest of the world.

oof.

So, while we’re all stuck inside self-isolating, Tiktok has kinda become the perfect means of escapism. Some have used the app to promote washing your hands and the anti-Covid-19 dance, commented on our government and Prime Minister Scott Morrison’s lockdown measures, or simply, used it as an opp to redecorate

But, TikTok user and beloved Korean grandma Chunja46 is imo the biggest mood.

From “Flip The Switch” To The Coronavirus Dance, Chunja46 Truly Is The Social Media Queen We Need RN

Little is truly known about Chunja46 outside of the mythos created in her videos. From what we can tell, she’s wholesome, a fashionista and too powerful for her own good.

Her videos, all shot inside her house, are the bright ray of sunshine we all need since we’re all going stir-crazy from a lack of socialisation. Especially when we’re all trapped inside and haven’t had our daily dose of vitamin D in weeks, rip.

And, I love her. 

Here she is being iconic af
