It’s Huge in South Korea, So James Rabe Tries a Mukbang, Which Means Eating Broadcast.
Over here, I wrote about the South Korean mukbang craze (translation: eating broadcast) and the kid that's getting rich eating in front of his computer.
A 14-year-old South Korean kid makes up to $1,500 by eating in front of his computer. His name is B.J. Patoo, and he's one of the most popular "mukbangers". "Muckbang" (pronounced muck-bong) translates as "eating broadcast". And that's what he does. Eats, chats with people watching, and shovels food in his mouth, and chews...LOUDLY! ((shudder))
In 2013, he made $250,000! So, I gave it a try on Periscope, which i why I'm not looking at the camcorder.
