Soju: An Official American Word

Yes folks, soju is no longer just a liquor in South Korea but a word in Merriam-Webster’s dictionary. The dictionary gave its definition as ” a Korean vodka distilled from rice”.

I am not a drinker but I certainly want to try some just to satisfy my curiosity. However, the price of soju in America is $15 per bottle. That’s too much! I am not ready to shell out some dough just to spit the liquid out once it touches my tongue. [I can’t stand alcohol].

I think the Korean dramas had something to do with soju breakthrough (if you consider it as one). This liquor perhaps appeared in every Korean dramas that I have seen, therefore, I must assume that this is indeed the showcased liquor in every Korean dramas ( I have seen, haven’t seen, or fixing to be seen).

Anyway, congratulations soju! You outdid Rain and Se7en.

    $15 is a lot. A Korean resto here in my hometown (that’s in Davao City, Philippines) sells a bottle for Php150.00.
