There’s “new money” — and then there’s this.

A 6-year-old South Korean YouTube star has plunked down $8 million for a posh five-story pad in Seoul, according to a new report.

The tiny big spender, known as Boram on her popular toy review channel, snapped up the building in the trendy suburb of Gangnam via the Boram Family company earlier this year, CNN reports.

The mini-millionaire, who has a total of 30 million subscribers, shot to stardom a couple years ago and now also has a popular video blog, according to the station.

In one of her most famous clips, she makes instant noodles in a plastic toy kitchen then slurps them down adorably on camera. The clip — shot in a colorful campy style — has been viewed more than 376 million times.

Some of her videos have sparked controversy, including one in which she’s shown swiping money from her dad’s wallet. Critics have claimed they promote bad behavior and poor values.

But she’s not the only kid raking in big bucks through YouTube. Last year, 7-year-old American Ryan Kaji earned an estimated $22 million through his channel Ryan ToysReview, which had roughly 21 million subscribers, according to Forbes.
