Anyong hassayo!!!

I really have been looking for a Korean hookup for soju. It's a kind of alcohol that is popularly sold in drinkin-boxes. If I send you money, will you send me soju? It's totally legal to mail it, I've had three different connections over the years.


Hope you like kimchi!!!

Hey Sarah -- this is great news!

I'm sure you'll have an awesome time. It's really humbling & enlightening to live full-on in another culture (or as full on as you can).

Some unsolicited advice -- do make local friends and do your best to avoid spending all your time with other foreigners.

I'd sure enjoy reading the occasional post of your thoughts and experiences. Please do visit us here!!!!

wishing you all the best and looking forward to your stories!

... soju...

Yes! And frighteningly expensive this side of the pond. You could make a killing im-/exporting it.

It does have a real appeal. We had a Korean student years back, here in Toronto, who broke up with his girlfriend and was buying rounds of the stuff at a Korean bar around Christie to abate his homesickness. Then he got the bill at the end of the night (in the upper hundreds of dollars). Luckily it's a terrific intoxicant, so he wouldn't have to carry the memory of signing off on the tab.

I'm envious of your move, and adventure. You won't need to be told to have a great time, but have a great time!

I'm gonna miss ya Sarah!

I can't tell you how just crossing paths with you in our neighbourhood can brighten my day so.

This will be a great experience for you - be sure to keep in touch and let us all know how things are going.

Have safe travels my friend!

mmm...Soju. Getting drunk out of a drinking box is fun. I think the taste is deplorable and the packaging wonderful

When you ship Velvet the Soju could you throw in a couple hundred pounds of Kahlbi (short ribs cut crosswise)? I could live off those fucking things.
