A six-year-old South Korean YouTube star with 30 million subscribers has purchased a multimillion dollar, five-story property in Seoul. According to a report from Maeil Business Newspaper on Tuesday, Boram Family — the company that operates two YouTube channels featuring 6-year-old girl Boram — bought a five-story building worth 9.5 billion won ($8.06 million) in Cheongdam-dong, Gangnam, in Seoul.
Referring to the real estate brokerage industry, the daily newspaper said the building is located close to Gangnam-gu Office Station, a transport hub where Subway Line No. 7 and the Bundang Line cross. The certified copy of the real estate register showed that the family purchased the 258.3-square-meter property on April 3, gaining sole ownership over it.
According to YouTube analytics website Social Blade, the two channels featuring Boram — Boram Tube ToysReview and Boram Tube Vlog — hold the biggest share in marketing profits among Korean YouTube channels. The analyst estimated the average monthly revenue coming from the two channels to be around $3.1 million.
One of Boram’s most popular videos, which garnered over 300 million views, shows her eating instant noodles made using a plastic toy kitchen.
A non-governmental organisation, Save the Children, filed a police complaint after receiving complaints from citizens. Consequently, the Seoul Family Court ordered Boram’s parents to take a counseling course aimed at preventing child abuse.
