One of YON­GIN, SOUTH KOREA» South Korea’s hottest YouTube stars is a 70-year-old grand­mother whose cool, un­daunted style and hi­lar­ity are a breath of fresh air in a so­cial me­dia uni­verse that ex­alts youth and per­fect looks.

Park Makrye’s videos are all about show­ing off her wrin­kles and her el­derly life in the raw.

South Kore­ans love watch­ing her give make-up tu­to­ri­als, re­unite with an old friend or try pasta for the first time in her life in her “Grandma’s Di­ary” YouTube videos
