Netizens deride Olive TV's 'Food Cart Without Borders' for too many 'unrealistic' customers

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. 

Check out some clips from this week's broadcast of 'Food Cart Without Borders' below.

Ever since I watched Running Man, I knew their shows are fake.

They all pretended to be surprised when guests showed up. As if they didn't know who was coming.

I live in Denmark, and so many people knows a lot about the different countries, especially asian countries. There's so many who doesn't know about K-pop but a lot of other things about Korea. And Danish people loves asian food - mostly Korean and Japanese.

That ones kinda funny, but think about it. She's fan of a Korean king, makes sense why she wants to eat Korean food.

Not saying the show is scripted but I live in Denmark and I know they gave notice to a Korean restaurant that "advertised" that the show and these celebrities would come.. I specifically know of the restaurant only but it wouldnt surprise me if they had contacted other people personally or contacted the Korean Embassy to promote

I mean is it THAT weird that 1. someone can be interested in in Korean culture aside from Kpop and 2. their interest in Korean culture (regardless of how they became interested) drew them to a Korean food cart?

I had no interest in Kpop at first,i started with anime found Kdrama and became interested in Korean history finally i got an interest in Kpop because of people like Suzy and IU..what your saying makes total sense to me,people interested in Korea are obviously going to be drawn to a Korean food cart,plus as with most reality TV i`m sure they had many hours of filming but after editing only showed the more interesting parts..
