New fad sees people in South Korea streaming themselves eating

Foodies, welcome to your heaven. The new online craze hitting Korea is what you’ve been waiting for: mok-bang. A mash up of Korean words (eating and broadcast), this new fad sees people online in South Korea streaming themselves eating, no, gorging themselves. Word on the street is that this new trend might’ve been taken from when Korea was praising actors online for their ability to eat deliciously in TV dramas. But whatever the reason, this is definitely worth a watch.

One of the most popular mok-bang broadcast jockeys is someone who goes by the name The Diva. By day she works at a consulting agency. By night she streams herself amidst an endless supply of food. The Diva spends around $3,000 on food each month. Picture a pint-sized girl scoffing down medium pizzas, fried eggs, crab legs, beef patties, and instant noodles. It’s a sight to be seen, that’s for sure!
