  • Soju used to be a distilled rice wine (or distilled from sweet potatoes, which is probably even more authentic and historical)….HOWEVER nowadays, all but the most expensive (very very expensive!) stuff is made with pure ethanol mixed with flavoring. It is basically just watered down everclear or labratory grade alcohol. That is why it is dirt cheap, and also why it usually doesn’t make you too hung over.

    Instead of talking about soju, if the writer had bothered to do any actual research (obviously not the case) he/she would have mentioned Makkeolli (or it’s better variant Dong Dong Ju) instead…still made with rice, delicious, and interesting (unique) rice wine that isn’t “distilled”… A close inspection of a lot of other alcohol products in Korea will show you that the whole industry is crooked as hell…ethanol is a major ingredient of many of the products that are put in traditional bottles…it is kind of sad, really.

    But Dongdongju is the real deal.

    • Hi Alvn, thanks for your correction on the Soju. You’re absolutely right, nowadays it is made with ethanol. Great recommendations for alternatives to soju after the readers have tried Korea’s and the world’s most popular alcohol. Cheers!

      • Have you tried makkeolli or it’s close cousin dongdongju? Anyhow, sorry if my comment sounded a tad rude, but then I’ve lived in the country for 7+ years so I guess I’m a bit of a connoisseur..If I knew someone would read it, I’d write a similar article! lol.

        • Hi there! Thank you for your comment and for the correction. I’m the writer, and I lived and worked in Korea until very recently. I also love makgeolli, but, sadly, I had to exclude it in this article.

          I encourage you to write about your experiences in Korea. 7+ years in Korea is definitely long enough to have some expertise!

          Thanks,
          Whitney
