Hana Hwang became an internet sensation when her video thanking Selena Gomez  for her surprise visit caught wind with fans and supporters, with over 2.5 million YouTube views so far and growing. She receives written letters, emails and thousands of comments of encouragement and inspiration on the channel feed.

Even though there were a few negative comments, Hana enjoyed seeing the continuous chain of comments by those defending her. She said that she would “just like to hug the bullies because they are just hurting inside.”

“I really want to thank you for your words of love and standing up for me. You make my heart feel really happy,” says Hana.

With Hana’s video success, a rumor that she had passed away started an online chain of RIP messages and emotional comments, but Hana created her own video to put those rumors to rest. Hana and her family are still getting used to her new fame.

Fans who believed the rumor have spotted her at the mall when she was making her customized yellow cap. They were overjoyed that she was still alive and asked to take photos. Shortly after being spotted, one of her young fans posted a YouTube video defeating the rumors and showed the new photo of him and his sisters.

Hana says, “I’m thankful for all of you. I wish I could hug each and one of you in person and I love you guys so much and I’ll talk to you soon.”
