Three Meals a Day, Meokbang, and the Korean Food Trend Written by Adri On November 15, 2014

Ratings with more than 6% for a cable television channel are very rare. Crossing that threshold means that a show is officially a sensation. So if a tvN cooking-eating cable variety show reached 8.3% in ratings, no one could deny that it is simply crazy.

Little that he knew, his simple idea has sent Korean audiences into a frenzy
