When Koreans want to have fun, soju is always included. Distilled in the country for hundreds of years, low-proof “Korean vodka” is the most important guest at social gatherings, parties, and celebrations. Some sojus have fruity notes; others are described as milky. But almost all sojus are sweet – sometimes intensely so.
These days, most sojus are mass-produced and mixed with artificial flavorings, sweeteners, and other tongue-twisting chemicals. The result is what you might expect: an overly processed, sickly sweetened beverage with a lingering, unpleasant aftertaste. This is far removed from the original Korean drink.
