Ever since Korea's mukbang craze started up a few years ago, mukbang has not only taken over web broadcasts; it's everywhere! These days, mukbang is a central part of TV broadcasts - idols do mukbang, actors and actresses eat in their dramas, even on the news, reporters share news about mukbang!
Now that mukbang has become recognized as its own genre of entertainment, AfreecaTV BJs have also moved on to YouTube to begin catering to fans outside of the initial "live broadcast" setting. So who are the top mukbang BJs gaining popularity on YouTube right now?
