A six-year-old South Korean YouTube star with millions of subscribers has purchased a multi-million dollar, five-storey property in Seoul, reported  CNN.

Boram's two YouTube channels - one for toy reviews and one for diverse video content - have made her a local sensation with a collective following of over 30 million subscribers.

Earlier this year, the child star purchased a five-storey property in Gangnam, a high-end suburb of Seoul.

According to a public real estate registration document, the transaction worth 9.5 billion Korean won ($8 million) was made through the Boram Family Company set up by her parents.

One of Boram's most popular videos, which garnered over 300 million views, shows her eating instant noodles made using a plastic toy kitchen.

However, some of Boram’s videos - such as her stealing money from a wallet or pretending to drive a car - have attracted controversy in South Korea, with people questioning the impact of her actions on young minds.

A non-governmental organisation, Save the Children, filed a police complaint after receiving complaints from citizens. Consequently, the Seoul Family Court ordered Boram’s parents to take a counseling course aimed at preventing child abuse.
