7 Reasons why we're so hooked on Stephanie Soo
By now, you’re most likely pretty familiar with the YouTube trend known as “mukbang;” - if you’re not, it’s a South Korean phenomenon where people binge-eat massive amounts of food in front of a live stream or camera for viewers to watch.
With so many YouTubers jumping in the mukbang wagon, it’s hard to find a channel that stands out…but then, there’s Stephanie Soo.
Stephanie is an LA based Korean mukbanger/YouTuber who started doing mukbangs since 2017. Here’s a list of why we’re so hooked on her. Be ready to free up an hour or even a whole weekend!
1. Her food plating is GORGEOUS.
If you’re like us who love to look at beautifully-displayed food, you are going to ENJOY her channel. Stephanie’s very conscious of how she displays her food for her viewers and this is evident in her videos.
2. Interesting story time!
It’s kinda hard (and awkward, as well) to search the internet with stories relating to crime and mystery (especially since we know our search history’s being watched), but if you’re one whose interests lie in these kinds of things, Stephanie’s channel is your go-to. You won’t get bored with her videos because she’s conveniently (and wittily) incorporated story time vids and mukbang vids in one package. You learn something new everytime you watch her eat!
3. Her quirky personality and confidence
Stephanie’s personality isn’t something you come across everyday. She’s extremely confident with her body, sometimes to the point of poking fun at herself, and she’s okay with it. She’s simply quirky and adorable. We guarantee you, all it takes is just one video, and you’ll start saying “biss” right away.
4. Consistency is key
If you’re the type who likes to watch videos everyday, she’s got you. Her upload schedule is as consistent as day and night (even during her vacations!). She uploads mukbangs everyday, and even runs a second channel – her vlog channel - where she also uploads videos simultaneously! We love a hardworking sister!
5. She’s drama-free
Trust us, we’re just as shookt as you. Drama? On mukbang channels? Right? (We thought we only hear that with beauty guru YouTubers!) Well, she’s done what she can to stay out of drama, even when she got caught in one sometime late 2018/early 2019. She’s very drama-free, and that’s just refreshing.
6. She will try anything
If she’s curious, she’ll try it. Stephanie isn’t a picky eater; she will try literally ANYTHING. She’s even tried Jollibee and that made for an interesting video!
Stephiance is a fun addition to Stephanie’s mukbang. Stephiance is Stephanie’s fiancé; he hides behind the camera and occasionally (or more like almost always) appears on Stephanie’s mukbangs and vlogs- but you’ll only hear his voice or see his arm most of the time, sometimes half of his body, and on rare occasions, wearing a panda headdress to hide his face. They have an interesting dynamic and it’s always fun to watch their mukbangs and listen to their storytimes.
