How would you react if you were caught right in the middle of the 5.8-magnitude earthquake like the one that shook Korea this past Monday evening? Well, this anchor showed that it was no sweat!

A clip of Daegu's TBC 8 news anchor, Myung Mi Kim, being cool and composed during the 5.8-magnitude earthquake is going viral. Netizens are impressed by her professionalism and left comments such as:

"Awesome. It must be the first earthquake in her life... She could have died if the ceiling lights or any broadcasting material fell... She had a poker face. She would instantly be the best anchor if she worked at KBS."

"Now I understand how difficult life is as an anchor. They don't even care if there's an earthquake."

"What a Strong lady."

"Such a professional. She deserves a bonus!"

"She's much braver than I am," and more.

Check out her professionalism in the clip above!

it's either she got ot in control or ahe didn't notice it at all.

She's so posed! I'm studying journalism and I could never do it, since 2010's earthquake in my country, I'm so scared of them.

How would I react? To answer your question akp, like its just another day of the week. If you're Chilean like me you know what I mean. So many earthquakes on a regular basis that it doesn't stop daily life.

CoMiRa cheriebunny Wednesday, September 14, 2016

So am I, 5.8 is just a tremor here.

k_kid cheriebunny Thursday, September 15, 2016

For Chile maybe. But honestly if you live in Korea, earthquakes are almost non-existent. I have family there and it was the first time they called us in LA to tell us about an earthquake they felt in Korea.

cheriebunny k_kid Sunday, September 18, 2016

Well that was exactly the point. Nowhere does it say in akp's question "... If you lived in Korea." They asked from your point of view. ¬_¬

People who live in countries that have earthquakes are used to them. I can't speak for South Korea, but I know Japanese are very used to earthquakes, and they are very calm when earthquakes hit.

CCA Maggie Wednesday, September 14, 2016

I live in Los Angeles and I'm not used to earthquakes. They still freak me out.

k_kid Maggie Thursday, September 15, 2016

Earthquakes in Korea aren't really common as Japan. You might have very small tremors, but never anything major or anything like the one you just saw in the video clip.

Maggie CCA Thursday, September 15, 2016

I know. I'm from earthquake country, and it was such a show during my freshman year in dorm in college seeing my dormmates freaking out when earthquakes hit.

intricate Wednesday, September 14, 2016

lol... she wasn't perfect though, her eyebrows started to twitch a little... xD but yeah... my friend told me she was super scared and afraid to die when that earthquake happened.. so props to the anchor for only twitching her eyebrow... hahahha

NgohiongPuso intricate Wednesday, September 14, 2016

Even without the earthquake.. nobody will be perfect...

intricate NgohiongPuso Wednesday, September 14, 2016

at any rate.. you can't say she wasn't at least shaken by the experience...

NgohiongPuso intricate Wednesday, September 14, 2016

From my perspective.. I bet she was thinking more of her job than her life... Because one move from their will be a broadcast blunder... but she stayed still.. :)

Winston Wednesday, September 14, 2016

No one mentioned anything about the behind the scene crew who also stayed during the earthquake tremors, the cameraman, audio crew and others. its like the viewers thought only the announcer is there talking. give the crew some credit too. A live Broadcast is never successful just because of one person.

soundxcrash Winston Wednesday, September 14, 2016

lol i was about to mention that we think outside the box !

intricate Winston Wednesday, September 14, 2016

meeh.. they all just ran away and left the camera rolling... xD
