K-netizens react to how much Sojang made through her YouTube channel

AKP STAFF

On May 14, it was reported that the infamous YouTuber Sojang has been prosecuted without detention on charges of defamation and slander against IVE's Jang Won Young.

Starship Entertainment persisted in its legal pursuit against the notorious YouTuber infamous for crafting slanderous content about several K-pop idols, with a particular focus on Jang Won Young. On this day, court records reveal that Sojang was mandated to compensate 100 million KRW (~73,232.18 USD).

According to a news report revealing some of the court documents, Sojang's YouTube channel had around 60,000 subscribers, and garnered approximately 10 million KRW (~7,323.11 USD) in monthly profit from the ad revenue in the videos. The total revenue from the videos posted on Sojang's channel was confirmed to be 250 million KRW (~183,077.78 USD).

Korean netizens responded in a popular online community where they were able to leave their opinions on this latest update on the infamous YouTube channel. Many were shocked by the revenue she generated from her malicious videos.

They commented:
"She probably had more views compared to the number of subscribers she has."

"She earned so much more than I expected."

"Wow, she earned that much with that few subscribers?"

"They need to block any revenue generation on YouTube channels like that."

"No wonder she kept making those videos."

"I didn't think that many people would watch her videos."

"They should've fined her more money."

"This is why there are so many cyber wreckers who are active."

"She's able to earn money like that. That's why she didn't stop and kept making videos with lies."

"Take all that money away from her."

"That's so crazy..."

"This is why people keep making hate videos."

"Wow, 200 million KRW with just 60k subscribers."
"She needs to spit all that earning out."
