11 Best Korean Subscription Boxes (K-Beauty, Skincare, Snacks)

Korean culture is one of the most fascinating and unique in the entire world. There are certain things found in Korea that you cannot find anywhere else.

For instance, Koreans use scissors to cut their food instead of knives, it’s probably the only place where you’ll get sweet-tasting grilled cheese (and garlic bread!), and of course, they love their soju.

Korea is also very safe, has super-fast WiFi everywhere, their service standards are fantastic and heated floors are a standard feature instead of a luxury like in most other countries.

It’s an amazing place to visit and live, but if you can’t make it over there just yet, you can immerse yourself in Korean culture through these awesome Korean subscription boxes.
