In order to celebrate the upcoming Black Day, Bokbulok Season 2 made a special episode dedicated to “black foods.”
When Kibum was chosen through a random dice game to eat a tarantula, he couldn’t hide his contempt and surprise at the situation.
The chef who cooked this fried spider dish informed the idol, “Because tarantulas are poisonous, we first boil it in water and then fry it in oil to produce a dish that is safe to eat,” assuring him that the poison is gone.
Kibum instinctively took the fried spider with his hand and placed it in his mouth. The show cast and audience members were shocked as they watched Kibum bravely chew the spider’s head while the idol seemed nonchalant about the whole ordeal.
“It was really hard to begin eating it but once I did I just thought of my mom. Unexpectedly, it’s pretty good. After eating the body, the legs seem more like a snack,” Kibum said, as he proceeded to eat the legs as if they were dried squid legs instead of tarantula legs.
During this special episode, other “black foods” that were presented to the studio guests include squid ink, horse’s black intestinal organ diameters, frog eggs, mole crickets and fungus ridden black corns.
Kudos to Kibum for being brave enough to eat the tarantula. Personally, I wouldn’t be sure if I could eat it myself if I was asked to.
I won't eat this even if my life depended on it~ cringe
