Eating live octopus in Seoul

I took advantage of a lull at work to go to Seoul, South Korea. It's a great place - more later, but I wanted to share a crazy experience that I had. The owner of the guesthouse I stayed at took us out for live octopus. Yes, live octopus. Needless to say that I got it on video. The tentacles still move around for up to 10 minutes after being cut up, and if you don't chew it up fast enough, the tentacles can stick to the inside of your cheek (it's a scary feeling despite it being painless.)

Needless to say, I washed it down with plenty of soju.
