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?

I've had straight up soju before, still too strong for me xD not used to it yet. I've also had a watermelon soju, they literally carved out the inside of half a watermelon and mixed the pulp with soju, so good! And just the other night, I had a peach flavored soju, it looks like the picture of the yogurt soju. I got it from a Korean restaurant (calls themselves a Soju House) a 20 minute walk down the road from where I live. Definitely going back to try other sojus xD their food is great too!
