"My TikTok account got big enough that people here in South Korea started recognizing me after I moved here," they revealed.

That subsequently led to so many different events. As June tells it, a woman from South Korea who recognized June immediately befriended the TikToker and pulled them from their "miserable" job at a private school to a new place of work in Seoul. While working this new job that they ended up loving, they met the love of their life and they're currently in a happy relationship.

June also revealed that the money they made by monetizing the TikTok helped them to settle down in South Korea "much more comfortably and much quicker" than they anticipated. As an aside, they even speak fluent Korean, though they've admitted that their fluency varies between conversational settings.

At the end of the video, June said that they'd be going home during the Holiday season and teased a possible reunion with Mashed Potatoes.

It's safe to say that June's life is in a much better place than they might have expected, all thanks to their love and appreciation of "The Boy."
