Sonny Side Wiki — Parents, Siblings, Real Name
If you didn’t know, Sonny Side isn’t his real name. He was born as Will Sonbuchner in a landlocked Minnesotan town, St. Cloud.
Sonny comes from a financially struggling family. Though he didn’t talk much about his parents, Sonny shared that he grew up competing with his siblings over supper. In his words,
“The way I grew up, you ate what was affordable and easy. Every dinner had a big plate of toast, so if you didn’t get enough hot dish, you could fill up on bread.”
For his education, Sonny attended Sauk Rapids-Rice High School. But after graduating, he struggled to find his calling. He flunked out of three colleges and took unsatisfying jobs, including being a server at Applebee’s. Also, Sonny put his education in audio production to work as a DJ in the broadcasting field.
Finally, at the age of 24, Sonny realized that he wanted to explore the world and headed to Asia for roughly $2,000. Also, he credited his hometown for offering a “lack of diversity” that made him “curious enough to want to leave it.”
Teaching English and learning film production, Sonny spent eight long years in South Korea. Reportedly, he even worked for some second-tier K-pop stars there before finally starting his food channel, Best Ever Food Review.

Mentioning his distinct features, Sonny always wore a red bandanna (rarely white). It was mostly to keep the sweat from dripping down and disguise his receding hairline. Also, many claimed that he resembled Jake and Logan Paul.
