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
