Korean Internet sensation says 'yes' to S'pore
She is only four years old, but Kim Yebin has won the hearts of millions online with her cute antics.
The wide-eyed South Korean girl, affectionately known to fans as Baby Yebin, was in town with her parents and younger brother yesterday to present an award for Influence Asia 2015.
Speaking to The New Paper, Yebin's mother, Ms Jang Hye Jeong, 26, said in Korean through a translator: "We are overwhelmed yet happy by all the love Yebin has received online. Every time we are out, people recognise her and want to take photos with her."
The housewife said: "Sometimes, they buy snacks for her and she would gladly receive them."
Yebin rose to fame on YouTube last year after her mum uploaded a video showing Yebin's adorable answers when asked to say "No" to strangers when they offer her treats or invite her to go swimming.
The video went viral, receiving over 1.3 million views to date.HAPPY: Kim Yebin, four, with her family. TNP PHOTO: SHINTARO TAY
Ms Jang said: "We were amazed and surprised to know her videos were all going viral.
"Even my younger sister called and asked if I knew that Yebin is so popular online."
It is the family's first trip out of South Korea.
When asked how she felt about being in Singapore, Yebin smiled and said: "I am happy! I love the swimming pool so I want to go later.
"I also want to go to the zoo here as I love animals!"
The little one shrugged when asked what she felt was her cutest feature and said: "I think it's my mum's face!"
And what does she want to do when she grows up?
Yebin shouted without hesitation: "I want to be like my mum!"
