A 6yo Girl in South Korea Bought a 5-storey Residential Building Worth $6 Million to Honor Her Parents

In this age of fast-rising technology, the speed of the industry’s updates is faster than we could imagine. For many years now, internet celebrities have fast grown in numbers, and social media and streaming sites have been trending globally. More and more netizens have entered the “Internet celebrity” industry, wherein they earn a higher income than what other people achieved after working so many years.

A 6-year-old South Korean girl named Boram has purchased a 5-storey residential building that covers an area of 258.3 square meters. She did it to honor her parents, who live in Cheongdam-dong, Gangnam District, a famous wealthy area in Seoul, South Korea. The building (reportedly) cost US$6,847,000.00 (about KR₩9.5 billion). Surprisingly, the payment for the building is only equivalent to Boram’s income for 2 and a half months!

Some people wonder how a little girl earns so much money. It turns out that Boram has 2 YouTube channels. Boram Tube ToysReview, a channel where she introduces children’s toys and has 14.6 million subscribers. The other is Boram Tube, a channel where she showcases her daily life with her family and has 9.42 million subscribers. Boram has shared hundreds of videos on each channel, and each video earns millions of views. The most amazing video she shared was when she was eating noodles with soybean paste. The number of views on this video reached an all-time high of 338 million!

One may think that a 6-year-old girl can attract millions of followers just by playing with her toys or sharing mundane interactions with her family. However, there is more to it than meets the eye. The internet is bigger than it looks. Preparing for a video requires planning ahead and how to overcome the pressure of the operations. These are the stages never shown in front of the camera.

Boram’s monthly income can reach almost US$3 million (about KR₩4,162,620,000.00). With these 2 highly popular channels, she has become the highest-paid (and the youngest) internet celebrity in South Korea.

She is amazing! Many netizens praised the little girl for honoring her parents in such a way only older people can achieve. However, some worry that Boram may encounter unpleasant opinions and bashes on the internet at a very young age. Fortunately, she has her family’s support all the way. ❤️
