From the Department of I Couldn't Make This Stuff Up comes this latest trend from South Korea: paying to watch a pretty girl eat.
Yes, Dear Readers, online sites known as muk-bang (literally, eating rooms) offer streaming video of people - often attractive young women - eating huge meals while chatting with their audience. One of the stars of the muk-bangs is Park Seo-Yeon, a 33-year-old woman known as "The Diva."
If you don't like to eat alone, the Food Network is too tame for you, and the various "reality TV" shows aren't floating your gustatory boat, you may be glad to know that Afreeca TV, the service which carries the muk-bang channels (about 250 of them, more or less), has plans to expand to countries beyond South Korea.
Have a good day. Clean your plate ... there are professional muk-bang diners in Korea who need that food.
See you tomorrow for Cartoon Saturday.
