Tsongsul is a traditional Korean “feces wine,” made by soaking chicken, dog or human feces in soju alcohol until the mixture ferments. So when Japanese news site Rocket News 24 got their hands on a couple of bottles, it was no surprise that no one in the office wanted to drink it.
The solution? Find a Japanese air band girl group and tell them it’s a Korean medicinal wine.
Apparently the ladies thought it was delicious, sweet and similar to Rosé or “those old Japanese candies they used to sell at supermarkets.”
And then Rocket News told them what tsongsul was.
