Right. I’m moving to South Korea. Goodbye world.

Right. I’m moving to South Korea. Goodbye world.

Kim Sung-jin eats dinner like many young people in front of a TV or computer screen, however this chap (along with many others across South Korea) earns money from doing it.

And not just a few quid for pocket money he’s pulling in £1000 a day.

He doesn’t even have a niche product, it’s just whatever the guy fancies to eat that day:

  • Chinese takeaway
  • Pizza
  • Chicken
  • Noodles
  • Local food
  • Soups

He’s become a ‘national’ celebrity ‘People say hello to me on the street,’ Kim says. ‘I do what I want. That’s the perk of a personal broadcast.’

Just like YouTubers nobody will give a definite amount they earn from streaming/videoing themselves but Afreeca TV (the website that hosts it) said out of some 300,000 broadcasters who air their show at least once a month, the top 500 make more than someone would normally make by working full time.

The famous Patoo earns as much as £600 per ‘session’

In 2013, South Korea television network TV Chosun said the top Afreeca TV host earned more than £150,000 a year.

Important things to remember with everything we post:

  • If you earn over your personal allowance (currently £12,500 a year) HMRC need to get their % cut (even if the money is in cash or from another country)
  • If you’re working for yourself / earning an income on the side you need to let HMRC know – There are numerous benefits but also some drawbacks
  • You need to always ensure whatever you’re doing is legal and not hurting anyone else – be careful and always think twice
  • Some income streams may require you to have DBS check, licence, insurance or qualifications before you can start to profit from it, do your research.
  • Be careful that any additional income doesn’t compromise your studies or main income/job
  • If you work for a company check your contract, if you don’t inform them you’re working on other side projects outside of work they may have grounds to ownership on this work
