5-year-old Dubai girl has over million followers on Instagram
Family moved from South Korea to Dubai
Breanna’s fans shower her with branded gifts.
She is all of just five years, but she is a social media sensation, with more than a million followers on Instagram and counting…
Breanna Youn lives a jet-set lifestyle and is spoilt for choice with her ever-increasing fans showering her with branded gifts such as Louis Vuitton handbags and Chanel and Tiffany jewellery to designer outfits, banquets and hampers laden with chocolates and cookies. She moves around in chauffeur-driven limos and globe-trots in business class, reports DailyMail.
Born to a South Korean father and a Filipina mother, Breanna now lives in Dubai.
Her tryst with fame started when her mother posted her pictures on Facebook and strangers requested her to start a Breanna fan page and she obliged a year ago. But when imposters began pretending to be the little girl, her mom started the OfficialBreannaYoun on Instagram seven months ago and Breanna’s fame rocketed.
She also has 305,000 followers on video website Vine and 210,000 fans on her Facebook page.
Breanna currently has 1.1 million followers on Instagram and gets an average 60,000 new followers everyday dwarfing those of Pixie Rose Curtis, the redheaded Australian three-year-old who was dubbed the Princess of Instagram with 90,000 followers.
She is quickly catching up with One Direction’s Zayn Malik and Girls creator Lena Dunham, both of whom have 1.2m Instagram fans.
Her parents are puzzled by her popularity. Her mother was quoted by the report as saying Breanna has ‘no special talent that she is good at like dancing and she does not do much on camera…But she has something inside her that makes people love her and makes them happy…whenever I put her in front of a camera, she is a natural and loves posing’.
The little girl speaks four languages – English, Korean, Tagalog and Arabic.
Breanna along with her 7-year-old brother were living in a two-bed apartment in Busan, South Korea, where her father ran a sea-food export business, when they received an offer to fly to Dubai and they haven’t returned hence.
While some parents comment they love Breanna more than their own kids, others criticise her parents for exploiting their daughter and enjoying fame.
