The Korea Times reports that a wealthy YouTube star known as Boram just bought a five-story property in Seoul's affluent Gangnam neighborhood for $8 million. Boram is 6 years old, and her wildly popular channels generate a combined monthly income of some $3 million, with some of her videos--many of which are wacky toy reviews--attracting more than 300 million views. As CNN notes, "On YouTube, child stars can be big business." To wit, a 7-year-old named Ryan Kaji earned an estimated $22 million in 2018.
