The course includes training students in becoming the next viral personality, putting on makeup, walking on the runway, dancing, live-streaming, taking selfies, and knowing all the relevant fashion brands.

According to Korea Boo, the social media influencer's market in China is worth $7.7-billion and it's expected to double by 2018. Whoa! No wonder they're offering this course now.
