Mint: A polarising flavour where one half of the population finds it pleasantly refreshing while the other half feels like they are eating toothpaste.

Regardless of where you stand, soju brand Good Day has launched a mint chocolate version of the drink in Korea.

"Mint chocolate becomes mainstream!" the official Good Day account wrote.

With 12.5 per cent alcohol, it has a lower ABV than your typical soju, which hovers around 15 per cent.

It's also supposed to taste more chocolatey than mint, despite its clear appearance.

Reactions from Korean users don't actually deviate too far from how Singaporeans might usually respond.

For context, Korea has been going through a mint chocolate craze for months now, and the fad has conceived products like mint chocolate jam and mint chocolate fried chicken.
