Six-year-old YouTube star purchases house worth €7.2m

Ah, the housing crisis.

For the past few years, we've been plagued by soaring rental prices, cramped rooms, bunkbeds, and not having anywhere to live.

It's been tough, with many young people opting to live at home with their parents for longer, move out to the countryside, or simply leave Ireland altogether for somewhere nicer, where rent isn't half your wages and your landlord isn't a total creep.

There have been little solutions given as to how best to solve this crisis, but thanks to a six-year-old from South Korean, we may just have discovered a foolproof one.

Become a toy reviewer on YouTube, make your millions, and buy yourself a house worth €7.2 million.

Simple.

The YouTuber in question is a girl named Boram, and she's been delighting audiences with her toy reviews for the past while now.

So much so that she racks in a staggering millions of views per month, as well as €2.6m during that time.

Suddenly the seven million euro house doesn't seem that expensive.

The Maeil Business Newspaper reports that Boram purchased the property in Gangnam, Seoul via the Boram Company,which was set up by her parents.

The six-year-old is now the highest earning YouTuber in South Korea, however some have expressed concern for the child's wellbeing suggesting that she may be being exploited for financial gain.

The Korea Herald reports that Save The Children took Boram's guardians to court in 2017.

They were accused of  "gaining financial profit by putting the children in situations that could put them under mental distress and distributing the footage to the public, with a negative influence on underage viewers who watch the clips."

The videos in question showed Boram pretending to give birth and stealing money from her father.

They were later made private.
