6-Year-Old Who Reviews Toys On YouTube Earns Enough To Buy RM31 Million Home For Family
A six-year-old girl, who runs a YouTube channel reviewing toys, just bought a new home for her family in Seoul's one of the richest areas
According to a report in Malay Mail, the girl's family bought a five-storey building worth some RM31 million at Cheongdam-dong, Gangnam on 3 April.
Known as the Boram Family, they operate two YouTube channels Boram Tube ToysReview and Boram Tube Vlog, featuring the little girl named Boram.
The two YouTube channels featuring the girl reportedly hold the biggest share in marketing profits among Korean YouTube channels
The two channels estimated to have an average monthly revenue of USD3.1 million, the Korean Herald reported via YouTube analytics website Social Blade.
Boram Tube ToysReview, where she reviews toys, has over 13.6 million subscribers. The channel has gained huge popularity worldwide.
On the other hand, the Boram Tube Vlog channel that shares the daily life of Boram and her family is followed by more than 17.5 million subscribers.
While netizens have expressed amazement over Boram's revenue, saying they too would want to be YouTubers, past accusations that Boram was abused by her parents are getting the spotlight again
The Korean Herald reported that back in September 2017, Save The Children's local chapter had taken the issue regarding Boram being abused by her family to the court.
The charity pressed charges against Boram's guardians, accusing them of gaining financial profit by putting her in situations that could put her under mental distress.
They claimed that by distributing her videos - in which she is seen stealing money from her dad's wallet, damaging her favourite doll and acting as if she is pregnant - to the public creates a negative influence on underage viewers who watch them.
Following the public outrage, the parents apologised to the public and made the clips private. Meanwhile, the Seoul Family Court upheld the charity's accusations and ordered protective disposition to Boram's parents, the Korean daily reported.
