Early Life, Family, and Educational Background
Kimi Park – popularly known as AngelsKimi – was born in Korea on 23 September 1992. under the zodiac sign of Libra. She’s of Asian ethnicity and holds Korean and American nationality.
At the age of two, she and her family moved to the US and settled in Minnesota.
She spent her formative years on the East Coast, and matriculated from a local high school in 2010. Subsequently, she attended the University of California in Irvine.
As a little girl, Kimi loved playing games. Her older brother inspired her to start playing video games, while her friend Edison Park helped her build a career in online streaming.
AngelsKimi is a hardcore gamer, who started by streaming her gaming sessions on Twitch in 2015, mostly playing the multiplayer online battle game, ‘League of the Legends’. As her audience grew, she diversified her games to include ‘MineCraft,’ ‘Among Us,’ ‘Maplestory’ and ‘Teamfight Tactics.’ She studied famous streamers such as LilyPichu, beccaTILTS, Pokimane and chocoBARS to become a pro, eventually mastering the art and creating her own style.
When she started on Twitch, she used the nickname, ‘AngelsKimi,’ but she has now changed her display name to ‘Plushys.’ She’s one of the most popular streamers on the platform, having over 410,000 followers.
Kimi created her first YouTube channel back in 2016, and the second one a year later. She is famous for making gaming and Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response (ASMR) videos.

Kimi’s YouTube channel was formerly self-titled ‘AngelsKimi.’ However, in 2021 she rebranded the channel, and told her subscribers why she had to change the channel’s name from ‘AngelsKimi’ to ‘Plushys’ – she had always wanted the channel name ‘plushys’ but couldn’t use it because it was already taken. As soon as YouTube notified her of its availability, she acted accordingly.
