HiBoy in real life
On 12 January 2014, HiBoy announced he would not longer be making YouTube videos due to feeling pressured to record and trying to balance his schooling, but returned to video making in May 2014 on a new channel, feeling refreshed after his break. He made a new channel because he felt the "MC" in his username was restricting him to making only Minecraft videos.
HiBoy is Korean and was born in the Gangnam District in Seoul, South Korea. He got the name "HiBoy" when volunteering at an event. Someone was tired of saying his Korean name and named him HiBoy and his sister HiGirl instead. The name HiBoy stuck and he initially resented the name. After a while he realized it was a good platform for people to get to know him and has accepted the name.
HiBoy has several independent series both on and away from the MindCrack Fan Server, including, but not limited to:
- Pick + Sword
- Chunk Survival
- HiBoy's Quest
- HiBoy's Prospect
- MindCrack Fan Server
- and significant videos (of multiple varieties)
MindCrack Fan Server
HiBoy participated in season 4 of the Fan Server UHC. Before the 1.5 map reset, HiBoy had a plot in the Cracker Town neighborhood of Blockhaven. He built a floating castle which he named "Laputa." It contained many elements essential to a base, including farms and storage, high above ground. HiBoy's past video series on the Fan Server was titled "Pick + Sword." The name comes from an older LP of the same name; it had an objective tower with goals to complete. He decided to reuse the name in honor of the past series. HiBoy invited a friend from The Spawn, AlphaStars, to join the server in May 2012.
HiBoy created his own skin. He got onto the Fan Server making a skin so he figured that he should make his own.
