Olive TV's ongoing reality show 'Food Cart Without Borders' is under fire for allegedly recruiting too many "unrealistic" customers.
During this week's broadcast, the cast and crew of 'Food Cart Without Borders' wrapped up their temporary outdoor food cart in France and moved on to Denmark. Shortly after opening up the food cart for business in Denmark, part-timer A Pink's Bomi encountered a woman who revealed that she was not a K-Pop fan, but a fan of scholar Yi Hwang from Korean's 1,000 Won bill.
This was not the first time that a customer "coincidentally" boasted his/her extensive knowledge of Korea. Previously, several customers who visited the food cart in Paris also recognized Korean soccer player Ahn Jung Hwan, Ghanaian television personality Sam Okyere, or had very detailed knowledge of specific Korean towns, streets, etc, despite the fact that they were not K-Pop fans. The food cart also garnered various "unique" customers such as magicians, actual chefs, and such.
Netizens complained via Olive TV's official website that "Most of the customers received invitations to visit the food cart via SNS", "There are too many Parisians who 'happen' to speak Korean", "This is a fabricated broadcast", "It's like they only show customers who know stuff about Korea", "I'm ashamed that Korean broadcasts are producing such fake content overseas", etc.
