Soju is now trending on Twitter after a hilarious video of a TikTok user trying the popular Korean liquor for the first time went viral.

Twitter users started sharing their stories about soju after TikTok user CrownMeCutie filmed a reaction video with the distilled alcoholic beverage. The TikTok user’s video has amassed more than 14.5 million views since being uploaded on Sunday.

In the clip, the TikToker shows herself reaching for a 375-milliliter (approximately 12.68-ounce) bottle of Joa soju with 16% ABV (alcohol by volume) for just $3.99 at an Asian grocery store. Her video’s on-screen text issues a warning to “Put it back” the moment she says, “Let me try real quick.”

After returning home, she compares the soju bottle side-by-side with a regular bottle of water. Without hesitation, the TikTok user twists the cap off and proceeds to chug the drink straight from the bottle.

That’s liquor,” she proclaims repeatedly. “That’s straight liquor.”

The popular Korean beverage is traditionally made from ingredients such as rice, wheat or barley. It also comes in different fruity flavors such as apple, plum, lychee and peach, and its ABV (alcohol by volume) is typically around 20%. To put this into context, a bottle of soju is stronger than 12 ounces of regular beer, which typically has an ABV range of around 5%, and 5 ounces of table wine, which typically has an ABV range of around 12%.

Soju, which is typically consumed in shots and not straight from the bottle, can pack a mean punch and knock moderate drinkers out of their senses, as shown by some Twitter users.
