Peter Kang as a Person

Peter Kang once revealed that he had been bullied in school because of his Asian ethnicity. However, he does not have any hatred in his heart and loves the Asian culture.

His family was not sure what TikTok was all about when he initially stepped into the platform. He believes one can make a lot of money on TikTok. Responding to a fan query, he once said that there are three ways to make money on the platform: to interact with fans a lot, to make sure one gets TikTok “gifts” from fans (which later turn into money), and to continue to promote brands. He himself has promoted fashion brands such as Fashion Nova on social media.

He wants to continue posting content on TikTok till the app lasts and hopes it does not fizzle out like Vine. He believes if one loves doing what one does, one would never get bored of it.
