Abstract

A mukbang ("eating broadcast") is a form of online video entertainment originating in South Korea, where the host eats a large amount of food while interacting with viewers.

The purpose of the present study was to investigate the relationship of presence and escapism with problematic mukbang watching. Path analysis indicated that social presence associated with problematic mukbang watching, while spatial presence was not.
