Idols have strictly scheduled activities, practice, recording, production, post-production, choreography practice, photoshoots, and innumerable other activities that they are committed to. As such, there is a minimum period that they get to express themselves in the ways they like and enjoy genuinely. To do that, different idols have different outlets of energy—some like gaming, others like painting, and some just like getting some rest in. Similarly, there are a bunch of K-Pop idols that actually spend that time making youtube videos and have a massive following on their channels as well. Here are some K-Pop idols that have their youtube channels!

1. Amber Liu

Amber has had her Youtube Channel for more than five years now, having started on April 3, 2015. She currently has 1.46 Million subscribers and tons of videos with her and her friends. Sometimes they do fun activities together, and sometimes they're straight chilling. Overall, her channel is perfect for you if you want to see friends having fun (and most of those friends are often idols as well, such as Eric Nam and BTOB Peniel).

2. Day6 Jae

Jae's Youtube channel used to be called JaeSix back when he uploaded fun roadside interviews and interviews with friends as well as casual vlogs and "day in the life" videos, which he conveniently called "A Jae in the Life." Since he started doing music solo under his title "eaJ," he changed the name of his Youtube channel to eaJ. The channel currently has over 946K subscribers.

3. EXO Baekhyun

Baekhyun's Youtube channel is called "백현 Baekhyun" and currently has 3M subscribers with 13 videos on his channel.

Sorn has a successful Youtube career besides her successful idol career, and she posts content quite often which includes covers of songs, makeup tutorials, daily vlogs, and collaborations with other idols like BLACKPINK Lisa and CLC Elkie. She also posts speed painting videos, reaction videos and often goes live as well. Her channel is called PRODUSORN and has 38 videos with over 564K subscribers.
