    Episode 2 of Seoul’s webtoon series with illustrator Soosemi!
    Is Seoul’s tap water safe to drink?

    Seoul boasts a world-class tap water supply system that offers citywide access to clean and safe drinking water—anytime, anywhere! Not only that, but participants of a blind taste test even evaluated that it tastes better than the bottled water of some well-known brands!
    That clean and safe drinking water is called Arisu—Seoul’s very own tap water named after the old name of the Hangang River, and consumed by all citizens of Seoul.
    Visiting Seoul and find yourself thirsty? Feel free to try a glass of Arisu!
