People: No more Tsingtao beer

Nippon TV reported that Tsingtao Beer is popular as an imported beer that can be easily enjoyed in South Korea, ranking second among imported beers in terms of sales. “JoongAng Ilbo” reported that as the controversy continued to expand, an importer of Tsingtao Beer said, “The Tsingtao Beer imported into South Korea is not the third factory that caused the controversy, but the beer produced in the 1st, 2nd and 5th factories. Because Each factory uses its own malt, so the malt that caused the problem in the video cannot be used in other factories.”

However, some South Korean consumers who have watched the peeing video have begun to react, saying, “I was scared, I just drank Tsingtao beer yesterday” and “I will not drink Tsingtao beer in the future.” Some people on the Chinese Internet also said on social networking sites , “I can no longer drink Tsingtao beer in the future.”

Tsingtao Beer opens sharply due to suspected urination video impact

“Chosun Ilbo” reported that Tsingtao Brewery was founded in 1903 and is one of the four largest beer manufacturers in China. Affected by this problem, Tsingtao Brewery explained that it “has notified the Chinese public security organs and the public security organs are also investigating.” All the beer ingredients that the male workers urinated on have been sealed and stored.”

At that time, South Korean restaurants suspended the sale of Chinese kimchi and took measures such as strengthening hygiene control when importing Chinese kimchi.
