What is Mukbang?
Mukbang (pronounced "mook-bong") translates to "eating broadcast" in South Korea. It's basically ASMR but with people eating large amounts of food.
Typically, the foods eaten are spicy and appropriately noisy, like fried foods, seafood, and noodles.
People who watch mukbang videos get immense pleasure from watching or listening to eating various foods. This phenomenon is known as the "tingles."
