Muk-bang, a South Korean trend where audiences watch people binge eat online, is satisfying audience appetites in China. 

On May 22, Cao Ting from Changsha, Hunan province, ordered an extra-large helping of spicy, dry cut-noodles and some spicy chicken wings. Then, the 23-year-old filmed herself sitting in front of two large bowls, swallowing mouthfuls of noodles and biting into the chicken.

Looking as cute as the Japanese cartoon character Momoko Sakura, Cao smacked her lips and wore a satisfied expression while binge eating. In addition to her appetite, Cao's fans were impressed by her beauty, and many commented on her slender figure, makeup and the tattoo on her wrist.

When she had finally eaten all the food, Cao posted the footage on Kuaishou, a popular short-video app. Within 20 hours, the post had received about 150,000 views. The top comments included: "Help! I feel so hungry now"; "Why are you still slim after eating this much?"; "Hang in there, guys. We can have breakfast in a few hours"; and "You are so cute".
