A six-year-old South Korean YouTube star with 30 million subscribers has purchased a multimillion dollar, five-story property in Seoul.
Boram bought the 9.5 billion Korean won ($8 million) five-storey property on a 258-square-metre (2,770-square-foot) plot of land in the trendy Seoul suburb of Gangnam earlier this year, through the Boram Family company, which was set up by the YouTuber’s parents, according to a public real estate registration document.
Boram’s toy review channel on YouTube has 13.6 million subscribers while a video blog account boasts of 17.6 million subscribers.
Her YouTube channels generate an estimated monthly income of 3.7 billion won ( over Rs 21 lakh), according to South China Morning Post.
Several of her YouTube clips have been viewed over 300 million times, including one which shows her slurping down instant noodles made by using a plastic toy kitchen.
In one of her most famous clips, she makes instant noodles in a plastic toy kitchen then slurps them down adorably on camera. The clip — shot in a colorful campy style — has been viewed more than 376 million times.
Some of her videos have sparked controversy, including one in which she’s shown swiping money from her dad’s wallet. Critics have claimed they promote bad behavior and poor values.
But she’s not the only kid raking in big bucks through YouTube. Last year, 7-year-old American Ryan Kaji earned an estimated $22 million through his channel Ryan ToysReview, which had roughly 21 million subscribers, according to Forbes.
