Making money by eating online in South Korea

Charismatic eaters in South Korea are now making money while they have dinner, thanks to a new phenomenon called mukbang - a combination of the Korean word for eating (muk-ja) and broadcasting (bang-song).

Participants stream themselves eating online, and thousands of people pay to watch the most popular performers.
