Still single Ryan Higa prefers ‘cute’ over ‘sexy’
YouTube sensation Ryan Higa has got the looks, the humour and the fame, but the American comedian of Japanese descent reveals that he’s still single.
Well-known for his comedy sketches, Higa was in town on Tuesday for the YouTube FanFest, which opens the Digital and Music Matters (DMM) event in Singapore.
When asked about his ideal type at a press conference before the event, the 22-year-old heartthrob said that he preferred “cute and innocent” over “hot and sexy”.
The celebrity, who has over 8.3 million subscribers on his YouTube channel, also again refuted rumours that he is dating 4Minute singer Hyuna, who is best known as being PSY’s love interest in the music video of worldwide hit “Gangnam Style”.
Higa and Hyuna recently appeared in a YouTube commercial for Toyota Corolla, causing rumours of Higa being “smitten” with the K-pop star to spread like wildfire.

Higa clarified that he did not actually meet Hyuna in person. He explained that he only made a couple of brief appearances in the music video thanks to Toyota’s app, which lets anyone add their own clips to the short music video.
The YouTube star also talked about the sacrifices he has had to make to pursue his dream. These include giving up college and not having a social life, as he spends a lot of time at home and writes for at least 12 hours a day to prepare for his sketches.
Higa will also be attending the first ever Social Star Awards on Thursday.
