A six-year-old YouTuber who has 30million subscribers has bought a £6.4million skyscraper in Seoul.

The internet sensation, who makes £2.5million-a-month from her two YouTube channels, bought the high-rise with her parents through the Boram Family company, a public real estate registration document shows.

But it is not known why Boram has purchased the building, according to the Korean Times, which was built in 1975 and sits on a 258.3 sq m plot.

Boram Tube Vlog has 17.5million subscribers and Boram Tube ToyReview has a further 13.6million.

The young vlogger said her clips are ‘making play and a fun kids’ playground video…cute and rewarding memories of everyday life’.

But Save The Children’s local chapter raised concerns over the child star’s channel.

It went to court in 2017, claiming Boram’s parents were ‘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 Korea Herald reported.

There were further questions raised over whether clips of her pretending to give birth and steal from her father’s wallet were suitable for her young fan base, according to the paper.

It led to the relevant episodes being made private, with her parent’s apologising.

The highest earning YouTuber last year was seven-year-old Ryan Kaji of Ryan’s ToysReview, who made $22million in 2018 alone.

The young boy, whose last name and location within the US haven’t been made public to protect his privacy, jumped from eighth place in 2017 to number one last year.

Ryan surpassed a number of well-known YouTubers on last year’s list, beating actor and YouTube personality Jake Paul who earned $22,500,000 last year.

The seven-year-old also earned more money this year than makeup artist Jeffree Star, and Swedish gamer Felix Kjellberg – who is the most followed YouTuber with a whopping 72.5million followers.

According to his mother, Ryan was once an avid watcher of toy reviews, especially ones that focused on Thomas the Tank Engine, before he asked to start his own channel.
