The two brothers have amassed a large following for their YouTube videos about life in Korea.

The brothers are sons of Yiombi Thona, who was born king of a little tribe town Kitona in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Thona arrived in Korea in 2002 after fleeing his country and the family gained a high profile in Korea after featuring in a TV documentary series.

Time magazine named Han, 16, as one of the 30 most influential teens of 2017. He debuted at the Seoul Fashion Week in 2016.
