I know that in China you can get live crabs from vending machines and Japan is renowned for its weird vending machines, but this is the first time I’ve seen alcohol sold in a vending machine in Korea. For a country that really. likes. to. drink. I’m not all that surprised. It just caught me off guard. Kind of like finding a cigarette vending machine in a Moose Lodge or VFW outpost in the States.
