Changes in the South Korean Beverage Industry: One Glass of Soju, Please

The Ministry Of Economy And Finance Announced A Revision To The Enforcement Decree Of The Liquor License Law

According to this revision, starting next month, it will be possible to order one glass of soju at restaurants in South Korea. This change comes as “selling alcohol in empty containers such as glasses” has been included as an exception to license cancellation. Therefore, selling single servings of alcohol is now legally permissible. Previously, some had viewed wine bars and whiskey bars that sold single servings as illegal under the Liquor Tax Act.
