Biography[edit]

Joyce Chu was born and raised in Johor Bahru, Malaysia. She has been uploading videos of covers of popular songs on her YouTube channel.

Malaysia Chabor[edit]

Chu became a regional internet sensation with her song "Malaysia Chabor", composed by Namewee with information about her personal self. In the song, she tells others that she is a "Malaysian Chabor" (Malaysian girl) and not Korean, as many have assumed her to be.[2][3] Since June 2014, the video has reached about 4 million views on YouTube, and has spawned covers and parodies by others, especially by a Singaporean recruit consultant, Gary Chun, who made his own version called "Singapore Dapor" in which he showed his affection for Chu.[4][5]
