Would You Ever Eat 산낙지?

산낙지 or, san-nak-ji, is probably the scariest thing you'll ever some across in Korea.

It's LIVE octopus.

It's just a very small kind of octopus that was cut into small pieces while still alive and served immediately, usually lightly seasoned with sesame and sesame oil.

Because its so fresh, its still squirming around the plate!

If you're REALLY adventurous, you can even eat them without cutting them up.

For me, I'm a pescatarian, so while I DO eat fish, the thought of eating a still-living thing really really saddens me. Especially because octopi are so smart! It's totally up to you though, and is definitely a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Would you ever eat San-nak-ji?

Tzuyu from TWICE had an AWESOME reaction when she had to eat it on a reality TV show...

In the end though, she thought it was delicious lol!

@SimplyAwkward lol conan obrien bought one of these guys when he was in korea and kept it as a pet (its name a samuel) hahahahaha
I've never had octopus and I never wanted to. I'm not a very adventurous person and I really don't like trying new things but as they say, "When in Rome."
I have tried it! 😉 The taste is good, but, my friends said I had to just swallow it, I couldn't. I had to chew on it before swallowing....as you say, "once in a lifetime" is good for me Lol 😅 after some of us tried it, we asked the lady if we could have the rest cooked...she I guess was perplexed as we had ordered it raw...it was better cooked.
If I were to eat it, I would most likely think that it's delicious. On the other hand, I don’t think I coukd ever get past it squirming on my plate or in my mouth for that matter. I remember watching this video in my international marketing class. It was a competition in Japan of them "cooking," although it's much more accurate to say preparing, live food. There were different types of seafood and even snakes. It was nauseating and yet incredibly intriguing to watch. It was considered some type of cooking competitions and judges would eat it and everything. My class seemes to be a mix of disgusted and amazed, just like I was. I don't think it's something I would be into trying. Lol
I couldn't, I would scream because the thought of a living creature in my mouth scares me and I'm a texture freak and octopus have strange textures...
