And so the plain girl from the countryside transformed herself into a glamorous online entertainer, ...
She usually goes live at around 9 p.m. and stays online for four to five hours. However, including the necessary preparation of researching discussion topics and applying her make-up, plus the need to interact personally with her fans for hours after finishing her streaming session, her workday can easily last for 14 hours, until 6 a.m.
Aside from the physical demands of working through the night, there’s an emotional strain, too. When viewers pay only for content, they enjoy watching and can give feedback in real time. They can request streamers to do whatever comes to their mind. It’s up to her to decide how far she will go to meet their demands, in the knowledge that someone else might be willing to go further.
“Some guys want you to show them your toes, and you have to wear tights while showing them,” she says. “I feel that’s too much; I’m using my skills to broadcast, I have talent. I’m not here to show off my feet to you. Others will ask that I wear more revealing clothes, show more cleavage. Those kinds of requests I can’t accept. To me, this is an art form, nothing else.”
