Korean beats Swiss as world’s biggest chocolate addict

Kim Do-yeon, a 21-year-old woman from South Korea, has become an overnight celebrity in her native country after admitting to being a chocolate addict on live television.

On Nov 2, Kim Do-yeon (who calls herself "Baddoll") made an appearance on Korean TV show "The Martian Virus", where she confessed to consuming large quantities of chocolate every day.

Now, it takes some guts to show off your slim figure while admitting to having eaten north of 1.2 metric tons of chocolate in the last six years alone.

As she demonstrated in the television studio, Kim Do-yeon loves chocolate in all its forms. Whether she drinks it from a glass, or whether she eats it mixed with noodles or steamed rice, she just cannot get enough of it! That last part sounds nasty for Swiss ears, but I guess it is not much different from chocolate fondue...

To quench her craving for chocolate, Kim Do-yeon says she melts small pots of chocolate every day and mixes it with whatever else she may eat, even meat. Her TV appearance scored a record audience, and chocolate addict Kim Do-yeon became a real overnight celebrity.

So if you live in Switzerland or have ever been here on a visit, you have probably gotten into an affair with chocolate at one point. So why not take this opportunity to finally come clean and confess your secret chocolate addiction?! Go ahead and tell us! We won't judge you - promised!
