What is soju?
Soju is the preferred alcoholic drink of choice for Koreans. Part rice wine, part vodka, soju can be found anywhere and everywhere in South Korea. I’ve seen Koreans throwback straight soju at BBQ’s, on mountain climbing trips, while river rafting and during pretty much any other activity that expresses their love of the outdoors. This includes passing out on the sidewalks. Hey, it’s still outside…
