Mok bang unhealthy eating for public attention

Last Revised: Monday, January 6, 2014


While people are dying from starvation in some parts of the world, few Koreans are actually overloading themselves with food.

Mok-Bang (a portmanteau words for eating and broadcast) is currently the newest form of "food porn".
Sitting in front of their live web cam, these young gluttons attempt to stuff their mouth with food while answering questions posted by the observers.

Some of these top professional eaters were able to make a few hundreds bucks (close to a thousand) in just one night by accepting virtual currency known as "Star balloons" from their fans.

Ironic, it is.. as they watch their favourite munching star ballooned.... (probably the most ironic post I've ever written. see if you can spot another)

But if you were to ask me. I just cannot understands the rational behind all these.
Why these people are willing to degrade their health for money?

Good health, is much more important to me.

Medical care is expensive these days. Don't ya agree with me...
