#TrytheTrend: Mukbang

Hungry? Film a mukbang! Mukbang is a mix of 2 Korean words: “muk-ja” (eating) and “bang-song” (broadcasting). It involves a YouTuber eating (sometimes copious amounts) food on camera, while interacting with their audience, either through live chats or pre-written questions. Mukbangs are an intimate, relaxed way for you to connect with your fans, so let’s dig in, shall we?
