It’s always a pleasure to witness the people you like to eat, and; it’s even more pleasurable when they make it appealing not just for the stomach but for the eyes as well.

We love everything about her! Right from her savage attitude to her proclaimed love for eating, she owns it all. Be it her gopchang mukbang or even a simple yet wholesome meal of bibimbap topped with laver bugak, Hwasa is a true beauty to watch even when she eats. MBC’s ‘I Live Alone’ wonderfully captures her constant mukbang escapades, and we certainly aren’t complaining! She’s called the ‘Sold-Out Queen’ for a reason. And honestly, we all are victims of the ‘Hwasa Effect.’ Watch out for the Queen when she eats!
