Alex Choi is a super-wealthy YouTuber who got over 682,000 subscribers by 2021 on his YouTube channel.
He incredibly loves luxury cars, and his most viewed video is also about his car.
The Origin Story
Alex is a South Korean American boy who was born in October 1999 in Seoul.
He was born in a wealthy family, which helped him a lot to succeed in his life.
He moved to Los Angeles in his childhood and now is a resident of there.
His family was great support for him since his childhood and the main reason for his success.
They noticed that he was talented, not ordinary; they provided everything they could and fulfilled everything he wanted.
Celebrities and YouTubers often do not share their personal and private lives in public, and neither does Alex. Thus there is not much information about his parents and educational history.
Alex started his YouTube channel on July 15, 2017.
The central atmosphere of his videos is about cars, especially luxury cars. It could attract millions of young people in a short time.
In March 2018, Alex uploaded a video to his channel entitled, “Police SEIZED my car and sent me to JAIL!!!.” Choi said that he was arrested after attending an illegal stunt show in LA where people were injured.
In September 2018, Alex narrowly missed a motorcyclist while attempting to perform a doughnut on Mulholland Highway.
As the video shows, Alex, for some reason, decided to drift across a two-lane road but failed to notice that a motorcycle was coming. Luckily, the two narrowly missed each other, and everyone was fine.
He immediately pulled over following the near-miss, only to receive a severe tongue-lashing from a woman (she is believed to be the rider’s girlfriend) who witnessed the whole thing.
He had the decency and good sense to stick around and to apologize profusely to her and to the rider, too. Choi said that the motorcycle was in his blind spot.
The incident was uploaded to Youtube, where Alex was criticized by the motorcycle community.
In December 2018, Alex was arrested in Beverly Hills for refusing to comply with a police officer.
This arrest doesn’t seem to be slowing him down as he pointed out that he “still has his driver’s license” and his M2, referring to his modified BMW M2.
In April 2019, his trip to Coachella was cut a bit short, and Alex had to return to LA since his Huracan started to lose oil.
