After completing a 200-mile walk across South Korea streaming the process for 17 days, a small Twitch streamer burst into tears on the streets of Busan.
During their live streams, many streamers attempt to complete crazy challenges, whether in the games they play or elsewhere. Subathons, for example, have exploded in popularity, particularly since Ludwig’s insanely successful 31-day stint in April 2021.
In recent years, live streaming your adventures has become extremely popular, and this streamer wanted to show off their journey between two of South Korea’s most populous cities.
Sseugsang, a Twitch streamer, began his journey on December 17, 2021, pledging to walk all the way from Seoul to Busan, a distance of just over 200 miles, and arrived in Busan on Monday, January 3 after going live every day to document his journey. He cried after completing the impressive feat, sounding both relieved and exhilarated that it was finally done.
He broke down and celebrated by running to the beach and jumping into the water, before relaxing on the sand and ending the stream.
During his 17-day journey, the streamer averaged just under 12 miles per day, roughly equivalent to the distance between New York and Boston.
This streamer doesn’t appear to be in any hurry to repeat this walk any time soon; perhaps driving or flying would be more efficient in the future.
