amd1433: For those of us who've never tasted it, is there a comparable western drink to compare it to?
Bucky Katt: unlikely
gweilo8888: Absolute rubbish. I've lived on three continents (including Asia) and never seen a single person drink the stuff, although I've at least seen it in person which is more than most Farkers will have.There is no way on this planet that Soju is outselling beer volume for volume, or even volume of alcohol for volume of alcohol./just another attention-whoring fluff piece based on a meaningless "survey" by an equally meaningless publication
blubaldnuglee: Drinking Soju out of piss pots is a longtime tradition among GI's in Korea./my liver deserved a Purple Heart.
LeroyBourne: Whatever makes squid jerky go down. An old gf went there and brought a load of that back./hork*

brantgoose: According to Google soju tastes like... rubbing alcohol... vodka... water.It is made with... rice... wheat... barley... potatoes... sweet potatoes... tapiocaIt is mostly made in Korea, but apparently, judging from the list of starches, it was based on an idea by ... everybody who makes alcohol on Earth including African villagers and natives in the Amazon jungle.
Ablejack: I have a bottle of Shaojiu, coincidentally, it's also considered the world's most popular alcoholic drink! But it is the Chinese equivalent of soju. It comes in at 53% abv and it is awful.
The world's most sought-after brew?Korean concoction sojuOf course you'll ask why:It's all thanks to....PSY?!There's nothing "Sir Gangnam" can't do!
Prey4reign: Soju is people! SOJU IS PEOPLE! SOJU IS PEOPLE!!

bizzwire: If it's anything like Japanese shoju, no thanks. As noted, popular != good./used to drink it before it was cool//tastes like ass, with slight notes of methyl ethyl ketone//profit?
powhound: The point of the article was to provide a discussion springboard on why Korean women are so hot.
