Watching People Eat Online is the New Craze in South Korea Because South Korea
Ya know how porn sites are the number one destination on the internet because dudes wanna live vicariously through those who have sex with hot women? Well, the fascination of living through someone who has it better than you has now spread to food. These days, folks in South Korea are dropping some serious coin to watch people eat like a pig...for hours.
The fad, known as 'gastronomic voyeurism', nets 34 year-old Park Seo-yeon (known as The Diva to the socially challenged individuals who follow her) about $9,000 a month. Not bad for a day full of gluttony. Of course, it doesn't hurt that she's cute and I'll bet a dollar to a donut the majority of her followers are men. Which takes me back to my original statement about internet porn. I've often heard the term food porn and I envisioned it as being much more exciting than what people in South Korea are paying for these days.
