This is a simple list of Korean beverages with the Korean and English meanings.

Beverages are consumed by Koreans while eating with friends or at office meetups. Since Koreans have a huge culture of drinking all sorts of alcoholic and non alcoholic beverages.

The popularity of whiskey and their very own Soju and Makgeolli ( rice wine ) is known to every Korean since both are delicious and easy to remember. Since most of the beverages names are derived from English pronunciation should not be a problem for English speakers.

There are various classes of beverages depending on the ingredients.There are a large variety of drinks in Korea.

Although alcoholic drinks are pretty popular, non-alcoholic drinks like soybean milk, fresh juice, and yogurt smoothie are also enjoyed by Koreans. This list includes the names of beverages including alcohol, soda, and water.

If you are a beginner at the Korean language, and are finding it difficult to learn how to say certain words or phrases such as beverages, then look no further. Here I have listed nine of the most popular Korean beverages with their words in English.

This has been done so that it can be easier for foreign people who can’t read or speak the language but who wish to learn more about Korea. I hope that this will help you learn and practice Korean at the same time!
