Lee Min Ho's Drink On 'The King: Eternal Monarch' Is Actually Available IRL

Get yourself some Cheong Kwan Jang

There's no denying that Lee Min Ho shines in whatever role he portrays. The latest one that got fans raving? The King: Eternal Monarch. But it's not just his acting chops that got attention, his wardrobe — even the drinks he had on the show — have caught many eyes. If you've tuned in to the show and have wondered what he — and other characters — are taking while spending late nights planning how to rule or at stake-outs, you'd be happy to know that it's not just a prop. It's Korean red ginseng!

If you're looking for a drink that doesn't just satiate your thirst but also gives health benefits, this is where your eyes should be. Fun fact: it's been part of many households — and even palaces' — rations for thousands of years because of its ability to strengthen the immune system, keeping you strong from health problems. It also helps the body adapt to stress and keep it balanced. Plus, it improves one's stamina. If you've been having trouble sleeping or are just plainly stressed out because of the current health situation — we don't blame you at all — Korean red ginseng can also help relieve your fatigue. It's just what you need to add to help keep your body strong amidst the pandemic.

It helps increase mental energy too. Perfect for this stay-home period — and late nights binge-watching your favourite K-Drama, if you ask us. Ready to give it a whirl? Try Korean red ginseng from Cheong Kwan Jang. With over a hundred years of experience providing drinks made with Korean red ginseng, it's safe to say they know the drink well. Here are a few ways to enjoy it.


Keep it balanced while you work through each day
