Apink member BoMi recently discussed how she runs a YouTube channel because it brings her joy and fun when asked about it during a press conference held on January 6th.
She was asked whether her profits from Apink activities are greater than that of running a YouTube channel, a platform that has gained her 500,000 subscribers at the moment. She responded by saying that there isn’t much profit being made from YouTube in comparison to her activities as an Apink member.
Netizens have bombarded her with comments saying that she’s only doing it for the money and expressed their conviction that she isn’t being straight with the public.
“Then don’t take ad offers.”
“She’s really unlikeable.”
“Having 500k subscribers should at least bring her $10,000 per month. I didn’t know that amount was considered nothing.”
“Just admit you want to make money and want attention.”
“Oh really? Then why don’t you disclose how much you really make from YouTube and donate it? Is being a celebrity and making money not enough? Why take away the opportunity presented to normal and average people to make money?”
But there were also people defending her and criticizing the commenters saying that they tend to twist and distort things too far.
“Our nation’s people are so delusional. Are they talking trash like this after being properly informed? People don’t always start YouTube channels for the sole purpose of making money. And can’t they understand that she might have wanted to start to make a little extra money but was explaining that it was harder than it seemed? And so what if she started a channel to make money?”
What do you think about the situation? Why do you think the netizens criticizing her are being so harsh?
