The Best Soju in Korea

It’s finally ready! This video has taken us a really long time to finish, because it was such a massive undertaking. Allow us to present to you THE BEST SOJU IN KOREA!

This is an idea we’ve been tossing around for a while now. When it comes to Soju, most people only know about the few big ones in Seoul, but there are tons of other Sojus from around the country. Jeju soju is great. Busan soju is great. We tried them when we were in each of those cities, but we never tried Jeollanamdo soju before. Whoa we were missing out!

And so, our winner from the Sojus is Joeun Day Soju (aka, “Good Day” Soju). If you get a chance to try it, go for it! I’ve never seen it in Seoul, but hopefully we’ll find a place that sells it. Soju isn’t the tastiest alcohol to begin with, but this stuff was actually a lot better tasting than the rest. It’s really surprising when you put it up against the Sojus we like. Cho-um Chorum didn’t stand a chance.

I know some of you might say “they all taste like poison” but – really – there are differences in taste. We know some people who are surprised that we can taste differences in Soju. Cho-um Chorum tastes very different than Jinro Soju, for example. Anyhow, if you’ve tried different Sojus, let us know what your favourite flavour is, if you have a discerning palette :D

Special thanks to MyChonny for filming this video with us. He was in Seoul for a few days a while ago, and we got to hang out for a bit. We’re glad he wanted to partake in this video as well. Check out his channel if you haven’t already. He’s a lot funnier than we are :D

You can see more of our silliness in the bloopers, which we could have made a 20 minute video out of if we wanted to, but we kept it shorter in case you got bored. Here: have an extra chuckle at our expense :D

Speaking of Jeollanamdo Soju, we just came back from our giant Korean Road Trip on Friday night, and we’ve got a lot of footage from Jeollanamdo and its great food. Click on the button below so you don’t miss out on any of them. Yay!

  1. I have a noisy neighbor. In order to get prepared to put up with their noise during the Thanksgiving holiday, I went to my local Korean grocery store and stood in front of the soju aisle. SOOO many choices. I remembered this video and googled it. Thanks to Simon & Martina, I’m now super duper stocked on “Good Day” soju. I have a feeling I will owe my sanity to you guys. THANKS, as always! I hope to meet you guys at the cafe next Fall!!!

  5. I was looking forward to this video with trepidation, thinking it would be lame, but it TOTALLY WASN’T!!! It was very funny, you livened up the dialogue a lot with your funny “endorsements”! MyChonny was also very funny and a very accomodating guest! My husband also liked this video a lot. I did notice though that the dixie cups got less full as the video went on…..hahahahaa! soooo drunk! It’s great that you feel comfortable shooting yourself not fully in control, that makes it even more adorable. I do think that the shots could have been just a tad further back though, I felt like the contestants were all up in my face the whole time. Interesting effect, but kind of grating after the first coupla minutes.

  10. Ha, this video was great! Gonna watch it again with my…mmm sparkling water. Great editing by Leigh. I’m pretty much like MyChonny, a super wimp with hard alcohol. In fact, I can’t even seem to stand coffee with a shot of Irish whiskey. I’m such a wuss..what happened to my Scotch/Irish roots?!
