A TikTok user is making plenty of Americans jealous after sharing a video comparing school lunches in the U.S. to those in South Korea.
We found literally the only tool you need to make delicious grilled food in the safety of your own home this summer.
In his clip, which has now received nearly 2 million views, the TikToker first shows several photos of somewhat disappointing American lunch plates while a badly sung version of Flo Rida’s “Low” plays in the background.
Then, as the real version of “Low” kicks in, Jin begins showing several images of South Korean school lunches — which admittedly look extremely delicious.
“I’m not saying America lunch is bad but Korea lunch…” Jin captioned his video.
Many of the Korean lunches feature a diverse array of noodles, vegetables, tofu, carbs and assorted meats, all served in a neat and compartmentalized manner. One tray of food is even topped with a full lobster.
TikTok users seemed beyond impressed by the Korean lunches, with many saying the upgrade was so severe they would move there for the food alone.
“I’m moving to Korea,” one user wrote.
“I would love to go to a Korean school just for the lunch,” another added.
Jin was only pulling a few examples, so it’s tough to argue that U.S. lunches are completely inferior. However, American lunches have long been compared to other countries by both media outlets and researchers — often with the implication that other nations really go the extra mile.
Still, American lunches actually stack up pretty well when it comes to nutrition. Juliana Cohen, an assistant professor of health sciences at Merrimack College, told CNN last year that America “has some of the best nutrition standards in the world.”
However, Cohen added that the U.S. lacked in other areas, such as the structure of school lunch and the time each child is allotted to eat. For example, students in Japan typically eat in the classroom and usually serve each other.
