Word of the day: mok-bang (#BRICKwatch)

Mok-bang is a mashup of the words for ‘eating’ and ‘broadcast’ in Korean and is the name for a strange new trend in South Korea.

It’s basically live-streaming yourself eating your evening meal. And people actually watch this.

Mok-bangers(?) spend LOADS of money on food and you can watch them eating huge amounts every night. They sit for around 2 hours and earn a virtual currency, which can get them thousands of dollars in real money! The trend has taken off on Afreeca TV, a peer-to-peer online video network in South Korea.

Here’s ‘The Diva’, one of the celebs of mok-bang.
