     Park Seo-yeon is a South Korean lady making a killing off her country’s new craze, “gastronomic voyeurism.” Break down that phrase and you can figure out what the phenomenon is: basically, “watching people eat online.” South Korea, the country that invented Starcraft the sport and now pays to watch people eat.

    Anyway, Park cooks huge Korean meals before sitting in front of her computer each night and eating. She keeps her clothes on the entire time! And for this, she pulls in the equivalent of $9,000 a month—a pretty good ****ing haul that has allowed her to quit her job as a consultant.

    Contrary to my initial thought, gastronomic voyeurism isn’t a fetish. It’s just kind of sad: Park says that people who

    “can’t eat that much, or don’t want to eat food at night, or are on a diet” watch her eat, while others pay because they feel lonely eating by themselves. “It feels as if I am eating that much food with her. I think that’s what the show is about,”

    said one guy. TIL: eating by yourself is apparently bad.

    We've all watched an episode of epic meal time, thus we have no room to judge.

    You're familiar with the ways in which Youtube generates revenue, right?

    Every time you watch something on youtube, you pay the creator of whatever it is you watched a certain amount of monies. Technically, google pays the creator, but only after you've clicked and watched their youtube webpisode.

    Sure, you aint physically paying someone in cash, but you're most certainly paying them with your time, and as the old adage goes--time is money

    Reality tv and web cam/webisodes that are popular are just weird around the world.

    If this chick isn't getting skeeted on while she eats I don't get it.

    This makes me think of that one super popular reality show in Sweeden or Switzerland where cameras follow regular ppl around as they don't do much. They're not like the fake reality stars that are some sort of personality and try hard. This is literally wake up, eat breakfast, go to work/run errands, watch tv, etc. type activities.
