South Korea's new trend: Earn money by letting people watch you eat on webcam

Simply eating large amounts of delicious food sounds like a wonderful way to earn some cash -- and that's apparently what some youths in South Korea are doing.

The new internet trend called 'Mok-Bang' (Korean for 'eating' and 'broadcast'), is where young and attractive Koreans stream their meals on webcam live to thousands of audiences.

According to kotaku.com, one particular famous broadcaster is known as The Diva, who streams on Korean site Afreeca TV.

She eats copious amounts of food from 8pm to 9pm everyday, from Korean food to five packets of instant noodles to three pizzas, she is a tiny pretty girl with a monstrous appetite.

While she spends about $3,000 a month on food, she also earns thousands of dollars from her videos as happy viewers pay to watch her eat.

To dispel rumours that she was throwing up her food after eating, she sits in front of the camera for hours after eating just chatting and digesting her food.
