Korean Wine At Food and Wine Festival

Yup! Our eighth visit to the festival.  This time we tasted Korean wine and it was an eye opener!  In Jewang ungi, a history book written in 1287 during the Goryeo Dynasty, a myth regarding the origin of alcoholic drinks appears. Once upon a time, there was a king who enjoyed using alcohol to tempt a woman to want to have many children. When their son was born, they named him Sul. The word sul (hangul: ?), referring to alcoholic beverages, came from a blending of the words “su” (hangul: ?; hanja: ?) and “bul” (hangul: ?), meaning “water” and “fire”, respectively. That is, “firewater” originated from the boiling liquid.[1] It should be noted that this is popular etymology at best.
