For those of you that live in Los Angeles’ Koreatown district, chances are you’ve heard of Yup Dduk’s #KTownSpicyChallenge. The task at hand, a giant bowl of ddukbokki, noodles, fish cake, and sundae (sausage) all mixed in with cheese and the, dare I say, Ttangcho pepper.

Our friends over at FoodBeast tried their hand at a bowl, and well... let's just say they weren't quite ready for it. Reach and Wally were put to the challenge by none other than Koreatown's very own, Mike Pak!

Yup Dduk’s next victim is everyone’s favorite KTown foodie, Cathy Kim. Cathy did a full video from her start to her tapout, definitely a fun watch.

If you guys and gals think you’re up for the challenge, head to Yup Dduk and share your videos with us on Instagram. Maybe it’s time the crew at Koogle gives it a shot.

Make sure to subscribe to Food Beast’s and Cathy’s YouTube Channels to get in on more fun as they tear through mukbangs and other food challenges.
