Don’t drink soju with Koreans until you know these important rules

Shaking your soju bottle before drinking it is an absolute must in South Korea. But, do you know why this is?

Soju is one of the most popular alcoholic beverages in the world. Before starting to drink, its common practice to hit the neck of the bottle before drinking. Yet, many who follow this tradition still dont know why they do it!

The modern soju bottle uses a metal cap, while in the past, it would be closed with a cork. The custom of shaking the bottle comes from when these cheaply made corks were used. Parts of the cork would disintegrate and fall into the drink, so it was common for people to shake the bottle. This would cause the disintegrated parts of the cork to rise to the top. People would also hit the neck of the bottle to get rid of the crumbs of the cork powder.
