A Pink's Bomi says that she is not running a YouTube channel for the sake of money + netizens doubt her statements

A Pink's Bomi made a statement regarding her activities as a YouTuber.

On January 6th, A Pink held a press conference for the release of their 8th mini-album 'Percent'. During the Q&A session, Bomi was asked about her YouTube channel 'Bbom Bbom Bbom' that has already amassed over 500,000 subscribers.

"It hasn't even been one year, but I am so thankful that so many subscribers have given me their support. I am recording YouTube videos with joy, even now. I am planning on diligently making the videos until [the subscriber count] hits 1 million and 2 million," expressed Bomi.

When the interviewers asked Bomi if she makes more money from YouTube or from A Pink, Bomi replied, "Of course, through A Pink I make a much bigger profit. There really isn't much [with YouTube]. After running a channel for six months, I learned that you should never start YouTube to earn money."

Bomi also explained that she first started dreaming of becoming a YouTuber five years ago, when she "watched 24 hours a day while on a weight-loss diet." Then, she ended the question by lightheartedly asking the press journalists to subscribe to her channel.

Following this report, netizens responded to Bomi's statements with doubt and criticism. The top comments revealed: "You're doing this for the money too..", "Who's gonna do it if it doesn't bring you money?", "Why are you doing this then? lol what the devil is she talking about? [similar idiomatic expression translated from Korean]" 

Other comments include: "Then, stop receiving advertisement offers", "If you have over 500K subscribers, I heard it brings you about ten million KRW a month, but I guess to you that is nothing....", "Of course you want to earn money and gain attention", "Oh really? Then disclose all your earning as a YouTuber and donate everything. I guess you can do that. Celebrities earn piles of money, and then you even take away the remaining opportunities for ordinary people with your very title as a celebrity.", "I just laugh".

Meanwhile, other netizens supported Bomi and attacked the top commenters for "seeing the situation with a skewed outlook". 

They wrote, "I think she's trying to say that it's difficult to start a YouTube just to earn money by quitting your job. Are you even reading the full article?", "[She saying that] she started YouTube by looking at the profits but later learned that it wasn't so easy as much as she thought", "How come our people just get angry before anything else?"

What is your opinion on this matter?

Netizens are once again showing their failure to use reason. If someone says they're not doing something for money, it doesn't mean they reject money. Not doing something for X does not mean one is against X. So all talk about that Bomi should stop receiving advertisement offers or that she should donate away her Youtube income is BS. A person can do things without the goal of profiteering from it, but if that activity starts bringing in money, they welcome it as an extra bonus. So Bomi does not have to prove to the world that she's not in it for the money by donating it all away.

The profits for just the streaming is minimum, the 'real money' on being a YouTuber is to become an 'influencer' and start to get sponsored content. Or, as many YouTubers do, start a Patreon or something like that, otherwise the income for the mere streaming is not enough for anything. Although, it seems many KNetz don't know it and think that she can equal or top her income as an Apink member...

Looking at her social blade, she's not earning that much. Ads are a fickle thing. One big YouTuber making an ass out of himself can affect the whole platform if advertisers decided to withdraw. There's a reason 'adpocalypse' has become part of any serious YouTuber's lexicon. Better to diversify your source of earnings with Patreon and merchandise.

"Celebrities earn piles of money, and then you even take away the remaining opportunities for ordinary people with your very title as a celebrity ."

This is just disingenuous. YouTube is an open platform. Anybody can open their own channel and do their thing (at least within the boundaries YT's guidelines). Sure, celebs may have it easy and are steps ahead of the regular, run-off-the-mill YouTuber but then again they already put the work in their own field. A number of successful YouTubers did start out as nobodies.

Even if she is, who cares? If she puts any bit of effort and time into making them while they're also preparing for comebacks, let her make that bread. It's not even that much, so why are y'all so pressed? She's a grown adult, adults need money to survive in the world (shocker). If she's treating it like a job, then hell yeah girl, get that money. Y'all are watching it thus giving her views and a tiny bit of money, no one is forcing you to either. Turn on Adblock and move on kiddos.

People don't really know how Youtube payment system works.

If BOMI really wanted to earn much as a Youtuber she would've quit her agency and be a content creator on her own. Having lots of subscribers is a motivation to create more videos. Many subscribers does not mean they'll all give you money... Some youtubers even have Patreon so they'll have funds and they have more subscribers than BOMI has.


I really don't know what's wrong... ALLKPOP creating this news or people not really asking the critical question.

As a content creator, getting one million subscribers is a reward in itself. Knowing that many people supports you will motivate you in creating more and new content. If she was earning money, it would not be because she had one million subscribers... it would be because of PPLs, donations, and sponsorships but she is not asking any...

once again, just haters have something against it. pretty much every youtuber does it for money too, but most likely because they can also do something that they like.

if these haters are subscribed to even one youtube channel, then they show their true stupidity, supporting other youtubers, who do it for the money, while trying to attack others...


celebrities should stop taking such pathetic haters so serious, just ignore them and let them cry in their parents basement as long as they want...

Youtubers don't earn that much money from ads in their videos. Most of the rich Youtubers make money from merch, sponsors etc. The money she would be making from YouTube is nothing compared to what she makes on Apink

Could it be that she is making money off her videos just as a little bonus? Just because she's making money on her videos doesn't mean that's the only reason she does it. I mean why do a channel where you do make money vs one where you don't?

You couldn't be more wrong, ad money is really bad on YouTube, you make roughly $1 per 1000 views. Of course people are not gonna just not put ads on their videos, if I can do something I love while making a littel bit of money from it, why not?

People are idiots. She releases just a few videos each month. That's not enough to earn much money with just 500 000 followers. She needs to release a new video like every 2-3 days to earn much cash.

"Oh really? Then disclose all your earning as a YouTuber and donate everything. I guess you can do that. Celebrities earn piles of money, and then you even take away the remaining opportunities for ordinary people with your very title as a celebrity."


The level of resentment, i feel bad for the celebrities that have to feel guilty because they´re often resented by netizens and how they should be thankful by their boastful life and are critized by everything they do. They have to portray themselvest as the perfect humble doll. And what right do they have to be saying she should donate her money? It´s wrong to spend the money you earned the way they want to, its wrong feel sadness or depression as a celebrity, it´s wrong to date, it´s wrong to wear something that shows too much skin, GO PREACH YOUR HIGHER MORAL VALUES TO YOUR FAMILY not on her youtube channel.

I think people are angry that she is not telling the real reason. THat's the whole point.

It's like when a gf asks her bf: "What makes you like me?" and the bf answered: "Your eyes are mesmerizing".

But we all know the real reason is "You're hot and I wanna get inside your pants".

because they will torture her if answers like that, that would be "morally" wrong since she already has a lot of money so netizens think they have the right to comment with their higher moral, but if she answers politically incorrect they would eat her, celebrities arent allowed to have free speech, they always answer depending on the public´s expectations.

"...you get paid when you have a certain amount of subscriber"

That's not how it works. YouTube pays per ad views/clicked not number of subscribers. The number of subs is just a social indicator as having a lot of subs doesn't even guarantee views. Some probably don't even know how to get notified if a channel has new vids despite being subbed.
