Korean 101: Crazy Soju Flavors

I'm not really into alcohol...

It makes me REALLY sleepy really fast so if I'm out having fun with my friends its better if I just have fun without any drinks in my system. That being said, I HAVE had soju and I can tell you...the flavor matters a LOT.

소주 = soju

This is your normal soju.

It tastes like straight alcohol, like you know it can't be good for you. It burns a little on the way down, but in some strange way you get used to it?

This is yogurt soju.

This was the first flavored soju I was told I HAD to try. My friends all said it was really sweet and actually yummy compared to normal soju. I still haven't tried it though! It's actually soju + yogurt + sprite + lemon!

This is the BEST soju...grapefruit.

This seriously just tastes like grapefruit juice which I LOVE. It's totally artificial and sugary but you don't drink soju for the health value lol.

자몽소주 (ja-mong so-ju, grapefruit soju)

Here are some others!

Strangely enough...in Korea, "cute" and "sexy" girls are used to advertise alcohol instead of masculine men like in the States.

Have any of you tried soju? What did you think?

Peach has a really sweet mild flavor but u guys have to be aware cuz ull never know much u drank cuz its so good n itll kick ur ass afterwards..means itll make u drunk unconsciously . pomegranate tastes like cough syrup for kids,citrus n grapefruit has some bitter taste after u drank it,blueberry is ok..peach oh men it is just so good.
tried it for the first time during my B.A.P chicago weekend. it was the 'BLUE' soju pictured above. I LIKED IT!!
I have had straight soju often and then was taught to squeeze a lemon in it. I've had a soju and champagne drink that was good too. ima try the yogurt one though XD
@MirandaKawahara. remember when we tried it for the first time ever. 😍😍😍
I always thought when I tried it one day that it might actually taste good, but this has kinda ruined that thought for me xD I hate the taste of alcohol and really if I ever drink in the future it's purely going to be for taste and not to just drink, so I hope some of these will taste good with little alcohol taste lol

Japanese Sake Has Amazing Benefits For Your Skin
No worries, you won't get tipsy. If you enjoy a few shots of sake every now and then, you'll be excited to know that the warm drink actually has some amazing benefits when it comes to your skin. Yes, you read that correctly. A Japanese rice wine you usually pair with your sushi can have you waking up like Beyonce. Flawless, honey. According to our favorite girl Chrissy Teigen, she informed viewers on her daytime talk show Fab Life, that the popular skincare brand SK-II's is inspired by none other than sake. While most of us are probably wide mouthed with surprise, for the Japanese, using sake for your skin has been a tradition for years. They even go as far as bathing in the wine on New Year's Day to rid themselves of evil spirits. According the SK-II's, they use an ingredient in their skincare line called pitera ["derived from a strictly controlled natural fermentation process"] which is a strain of yeast found in the sake. How amazing and interesting is that? It's becoming a trend to find skincare products that happen to be infused with this all natural ingredient and the results happen to be amazing. So, grab yourself a shot glass, throw one back and keep scrolling to see a few products that will give you the skin you've always drank -- oops, I meant dreamt of. Fresh® Sake Bath [get yours here] SK-II Pitera Essence Set [get yours here] boscia Sake Balm [get yours here] Would you give any of these sake infused products a try?
How To Learn A New Language At Home
I've been trying to improve my French recently, and came across these awesome YouTubers called DamonandJo. They have self-taught themselves nearly 6 languages! I believe they speak French, Spanish, Portugese, Italian, German, and of course English! You can either watch the video above (which I suggest cause they have the BEST sense of humor) or check out their tips below: 1. Follow Famous YouTubers in the language you want to learn! There are tons of youtubers in other languages, and often if they are famous enough, there will be english subtitles. Listen to them to hear real people speaking the language rather than a text book! They're usually super entertaining too so it helps :) 2. Follow those YouTubers or famous people on twitter so you see that language each day! The easiest way to get used to a foreign language is to see it all the time and this really helps! 3. Change your phone/facebook/etc language to your desired language! Since you probably already know where everything is in your phone or facebook, you wont be confused and you'll learn a ton of new vocab! 4. Listen to audio books in the language you want!!! Audible has a ton of foreign language books. Try starting with a book you already know well (like Harry Potter for me - I'm trying to read that in Korean right now...) and listen throughout your day! 5. Sign up for foreign magazines or newsletters! Or even better download their app in another language! For example, my boyfriend gets push notification from Le Monde which is a french newspaper :) Even if you only read the headline, its practice. 6. Try cooking a meal using a recipe in a different language! You start to learn that a lot of words you actually already know (for example, sauté means the same thing in french and in korean bokkeum (like bokkeumbap) means fried! so literally "fried rice!" 7. Watch TV shows in the language Duh!!!! 8. Talk to yourself and dont be afraid! Practice speaking whenever you can, even to people who are strangers! be brave! What languages are you trying to learn?!
