The Twitter user who shared the video clip was confused by the fact Taeyong had bit into it like one would do an apple.
But, in different parts of the world it’s customary to eat tomatoes this way, even adding sugar or salt to heighten its natural flavor.
In Korea this is really common, they sell tomatoes and eat them like its any other fruit

Yet, there are people who prefer to cut it before eating or simply choose not eat it at all because of its taste.

One thing’s for certain: Taeyong enjoyed his healthy snack. And, there’s always more than one way to do something, especially when it comes to one’s personal enjoyment.
