A six-year-old South Korean YouTube celebrity named Boram, who has 30 million subscribers, has gone out and bought herself an $8 million, five story home in Seoul, according to CNN.

The child star bought the building in the suburb of a Gangnam earlier this year through a company set up by her parents. She has two popular YouTube accounts: one where she reviews toys that has 13.6 million subscribers and another video blog account that has 17.6 million subscribers.

One of her most popular videos has attracted over 376 million views. In it, she makes instant noodles using a plastic toy kitchen and eats them on camera. Her content, however, has attracted some controversy in South Korea because people have been worried that her clips could negatively impact the emotional and ethical development of younger viewers.

Among the videos people are concerned about are staged clips showing her stealing money from her father’s wallet and appearing to drive cars on the road.

The non-governmental organization Save the Children reported her videos to the police and a local family court ordered her parents to complete a counseling course designed to prevent child abuse as a result. Those clips have now been taken down. Child stars on YouTube can be big business, according to CNN:

According to Forbes, the highest earning YouTuber last year was seven-year-old Ryan Kaji, the American star of Ryan ToysReview. In 2018, he earned an estimated $22 million through his channel, which has attracted over 20.8 million subscribers.

Other young stars include five-year-old American Tydus, who appears on his family's YouTube channel Trav and Cor, which has 3.1 million subscribers.

These YouTube stars make money in a couple ways. They can take a cut of the ads that play on their videos and they can also partner with brands to sell merchandise or include products in their videos.

In February, YouTube shut down comments on videos of minors after accusations that the platform had aided pedophiles.
