K-dramas inspire Indonesian to create halal soju

Korean spirit: Sovi created Mojiso after watching K-drama series, which made her want to try the food and drinks she saw on screen.

AS the Korean Wave continues to influence the lifestyles of many Indonesians, Sovi, a culinary entrepreneur from Bandung, recently made news for creating a halal version of South Korea’s national drink, soju.

“This Mojiso drink is not soju like the one in Korea. The ingredients are 100% different. That’s why it’s halal, ” Sovi told kompas.com.
