More wine, please

Wine bottles are stacked on a shelf at a retail market in Seoul on Thursday. According to the Korea Customs Service's trading report released on Thursday, Korea imported $236.88 million worth of wine during the first half of 2021, a 110 percent increase on year. The liquor industry cited the Covid-19 pandemic as the reason for the surge, because more people stay at home and drink alone. [YONHAP]
