One of my favourite stories of 2013 – we gathered 12 expats to taste-test 16 different sojus, the first time anyone has ever bothered comparing soju brands. Also included was a history of the drink, interviews with foreigners selling soju overseas and Koreans drinking it at home, and an analysis of why it’s so popular. Nominated for Groove’s Food and Drink Story of the Year, 2013. Read it at Groove.
