This is a illustration of one of my project call ' Dalbam' a Korean Bar. I tried to draw many as possible to show the Korean alcohol and their design. One the left side will be the Korean beer and the right side will be Korean Soju.

Soju (/ˈsoʊdʒuː/; from Korean: 소주; 燒酒 [so.dʑu]) is a clear, colourless distilled alcoholic beverage of Korean origin. It is usually consumed neat, and its alcohol content varies from about 12.9% to 53% alcohol by volume (ABV).[4][5] Most brands of soju are made in South Korea. While soju is traditionally made from the grains of ricewheat, or barley, modern producers often replace rice with other starches, such as potato and sweet potato. This liquor features in the drinking culture of Korea.


Korean beer. "Strong IPA Platinum beer."


After establishing the company in 2010, Platinum Craft moved to China to produce beer, and is making beer in Chungcheongbuk-do, Korea in 2017. I haven't tried it, but if you look at the reviews, it feels light at first but has a strong bitter taste and a sweet taste behind it.


Korean beer, "Gwanghwamun".

Seoulite Ale


Korean craft beer. Convenience store GS25 beer "Gwanghwamun".
It was the most impressive that I had never encountered it before, the design was pretty, and it was also designed as Gwanghwamun Gate, a representative attraction in Korea.Gwanghwamun Gate is the main gate in the south of Gyeongbokgung Palace. It means that "the great virtue of wages shines on the whole country."


BN Group's liquor company. It is the oldest local liquor company in Busan and is a dilute soju manufacturer, and representative soju companies include Daesun and C1 (Siwon). The headquarters is located in Busan Metropolitan City.

Daesun Soju contains natural sweeteners Tomatin and honey, so it has a high sweetness and flavor. Long-aged distilled soju stock solution adds a clean and deep taste. In particular, it has implemented a soft throat by applying the "far-infrared maturity method" developed by a research institute under the presidential election casting and obtained a patent.


Hallasan Mountain is a liquor manufacturer and brand name of diluted soju in Hallim-eup, Jeju-si, Jeju-si, Jeju Special Self-Governing Province. Hallasan Mountain is neat and has a good neck flip. It is also soju made of volcanic rock water. It is even more famous because it is a specialty of Jeju Island, and it is not available in countries other than Korea.

The labels and peking designs of Korean soju and beer are colorful and large in writing. The soju industry will carry out an agreement to unify bottle designs into one in 2010 and share empty bottles. From then on, soju bottles will be recycled and sold regardless of the manufacturer. In the end, the reason why soju is green is because green soju is a hit and the color that can be purchased at a low price is green.


Why do beer bottles have a lot of brown?
In 1995, a copy of "Beer Drinking with Eyes" was released. Breaking the stereotype that beer bottles should be brown, this beer gained sensational popularity among young people. Then, why were all beer bottles brown until the transparent beer bottles came out? It is for UV protection. Beer smells bad when exposed to strong light for a certain period of time due to deformation in the hop component, one of the main ingredients of beer. It is because of the chemical reaction between sunlight and hope.

For reference, soju is transparent unlike other liquor, so it doesn't matter what color bottle you use. Using a green bottle in terms of marketing to give a nature-friendly image.
