In Korea eating live octopus is considered as a way to build strength and stamina and some martial artists do this difficult task to get power. Octopus is an animal with a bulby head, two black beady eyes and slimy eight legs with thousands of suckers. Eating such a beast alive is quite a task as the tentacles can attach to the tongue or teeth, as explained by a vendor. He survived when the tentacles attached to his teeth. The narrator explains all cannot be as fortunate as the vendor – which means that people would have lost their life eating live octopuses. Despite this Koreans eat this with considerable ease as depicted in this video.
