Who are the most subscribed YouTubers in Hong Kong? In this article, we’ll introduce the top 10 famous Youtubers in the city. The list is based on the number of their subscribers as of Sep 2020 and it will change from time to time! Let’s meet them!

1 Emi Wong

Emi Wong is a fitness instructor who owns 3m subscribers on YouTube. She has been posting workout videos since 2017. To our surprise, Emi was once a party girl. She loved drinking and partying. She didn’t love her body back then and suffered from an eating disorder. When she realized she was not alright, she started re-examining her lifestyle choices. Eventually she underwent a lifestyle transformation and became a personal trainer.

At that time, she was not entirely satisfied with her corporate life. She wanted to become a part-time personal trainer to earn extra money. However, finding clients was a bit difficult, especially since she had a full-time job. Therefore, she decided to upload workout videos on YouTube which leads to her massive online success.

A lot of her workout videos are 10 to 20 minutes, and anyone can do them at home. This is completely suitable for busy Hong Kongers who can’t find time to exercise. So it is not difficult to explain her channel’s popularity. Some of her videos are in English, an unique point to help her stand out as a Hong Kong youtuber as she attracts overseas fans who can’t understand Cantonese (local language in Hong Kong)!

2 Gem Tang

While Gem is not necessarily a Youtuber, she does own a personal Youtube channel. Technically a singer, Gem shares her music and personal life on Youtube and attracts more than 2.37m subscribers.

Gem, whose real name is Tang Sze-wing, rose to prominence in Hong Kong about 10 years ago. She later found further success elsewhere in China after attending I am a Singer, a popular Chinese singing competition show in China.
