Business Insider reports that this teenager from South Korea has found a way to make lots of money from eating.

That’s right, 14-year-old, Bj Patoo, streams his food binges on a platform called Afreeca TV where viewers are allowed to donate digital balloons that are worth around 10 cents each.

By using the platform to broadcast his eating, Patoo is apparently raking in around $1,500 a night for munching his dinner.

The act is actually called Mukbang and is quite trend in South Korea where many people pass the time while eating alone but opening up their dining rooms to love broadcasts.

The community also chat to Patoo and make suggestions as to what he should have next.
