GOT7‘s BamBam is going viral in the Philippines!
On October 21, Filipino fans of the Thai singer were amazed when he posted a photo of his snack of the day on social media. It was none other than the local delicacy called balut.

Although it looks like a simple hard boiled egg on the outside, it is actually a fertilized duck egg made up of the egg yolk, the egg white, the soup, and the baby duck itself.
A few days after sharing this photo, BamBam uploaded the full video of himself trying the egg for the first time. It opened with him cracking the shell on a hard surface.
He definitely seemed to find it interesting at least!
While many fans loved how BamBam immersed himself in the food culture of the Philippines…

… a number of them couldn’t help but laugh at the pun that he created. GOT7’s fandom is called Ahgase (also known as IGOT7) which means “baby bird” in Korean. As such, BamBam was experiencing eating the Filipino ahgase—balut! He even said before putting the egg in his mouth that he’s “eating Ahgase for the first time.”
Fans agreed with the joke that BamBam was “eating” them, even punctuating their comments with crying emojis.
You’re eating an ahgase? 😭😭😭

Last month BamBam shared in his press conference that he would like to “taste” his fans. He finally got to do so by eating balut!
I wanna experience eating my own fandom.
