The girls, in their 20s, planned out their travel around shopping for cutesy items and visiting animal cafes around Seoul.

Upon their arrival in Korea, Yoo’s three friends voiced they wanted to try Korea’s staple liquor, soju.

After purchasing several bottles at a Korean convenience store and trying the drink, the three Russian friends announced that soju is “like water.”
