TikToker Compares American and Korean School Lunches in Hilarious Video

A TikTok user who moved to the U.S. from South Korea has gone viral after comparing school lunches in a recent video.

Minu Jin, who goes by the handle @gami1227, shared the hilarious video on June 30, suggesting which school lunch is supposedly better.

The video begins with several photos of typical American school lunch: trays containing burgers, pizzas, side dishes of corn, carrots and green peas, and of course, Bosco sticks.

In what appears to be a striking juxtaposition, the video then cuts to photos of Korean school lunches, which consisted of noodles, vegetables, meats and other diverse side dishes.

For a grand finale, one tray even had an entire lobster on top.

Jin, of course, only picked a few examples. At the end of the day, it comes down to individual taste and the fact that all school lunches serve the same purpose of nourishing students.

@gami1227I’m not saying America lunch is bad but Korea lunch… 😩😭🥰😍❤️ ##foryou ##foryoupage ##fyp ##foryourpage ##korean ##korea ##food ##lunch ##asian♬ Switch – backupuser_tinem

Still, Jin managed to convince a lot. The video has received more than 2.1 million views as of this writing, with many wishing to move to South Korea for the sake of lunch.
