woman-earns-a-living-by-eating

I’ve always told people that making good money doesn’t come easy, but I think I’ve been proven wrong.

According to Reuters, a trend called “gastronomic voyeurism” is taking South Korea by storm. There are a select few that are taking great advantage of this. One of them is Park Seo-yeon, a 34-year-old who recently left her job at a consulting firm to pursue her online “business” full-time. Why? Because she is making over $9,000 a month just to eat in front of a webcam.

She goes by the name of “The Diva” and will sit and eat food while chatting with her fans for up to three-hours. Viewers then send her virtual balloons, which translates to cash.

However, Park claims that she is not doing this just for the money. She believes that she is helping give back to society as well.

“It feels great when people said ‘I recovered from anorexia thanks to you’ or ‘Thank you for a fun and delicious time’,” she said. “I am the woman who lives a life to eat.”

Would YOU pay to watch her eat? Make some noise in the comments below!
