Funnyjun is the author of ‘Soft Soju Exploration Life’, the only book on Korea’s soju, and has selected some of the more than 200 illustrations contained in the book to make posters and continue exhibitions in Korea and abroad. Based on the idea that soju is not simply alcohol but works as a communication tool for most adults, he divided the actions, behaviors, and attitudes at drinking parties into segments and revealed that they are aspects of contemporary culture.

For Koreans, soju is an etiquette that is naturally learned at drinking parties, but for foreigners, it is a new K-culture. Scenes of drinking soju inevitably appear in K-dramas and K-movies such as The Glory, Taxi Driver, Casino, etc., which have high viewership ratings on OTT such as Netflix and Disney+. But it’s hard to know how to do it exactly.
