What is a Korean Box Subscription by My Seoulbox?


So, you want to try Korean snacks? But your local Asian store doesn’t have enough selection to feed your appetite. So, you look for a snack box service online, but you have no idea where to start? What even is a subscription box?

A Korean Snack Box Subscription is essentially a monthly box that is shipped to your door, of Korean snacks, foods and drinks, essential skincare products the most loved K-pop merchandise etc., that are usually only commercially available in Korea only. The snacks you get sent vary from sweet to savoury to a bit of both and are genuine products that Korean’s love. You can get a single shipment and be done, or you can subscribe to the service on a monthly fee to be sent a box with a new theme and new snacks inside each month. 

What is a Korean Subscription Box for Snacks and Lifestyle products?

As said before the subscription is a bit like your monthly Netflix fee, but instead of a digital service you get sent a variety of delicious and delectable Korean treats as well as a skincare product such as a Korean sheet mask, or a general lifestyle product such as Korean black charcoal toothpaste. All this is for quite an affordable price too! 

Have we tickled your fancy yet? Well, do get one of these boxes, you can order through our main website, choose your box and checkout! It’s quite a simple process, made that way so you can curb your Korean snack appetite as quickly as you can. You can get a single box for a one-off payment, or you can subscribe to a monthly box at a discounted price.

When your box arrives, you can usually expect to have 16-18 different snacks in your box – depending on what fits in the box that month – and your one lifestyle product, 1 piece of K-Pop merch as well as the Seoulbox magazine Seoulzine, which explains what each snack is, their origin and any other fun facts about that month’s theme in terms of Korean culture.

Oh, yeah! Each box has a monthly theme, which makes the collated selection of snacks and products even more exciting! Additionally, Seoulbox also offer more than 1 type of box. Could this get any better? Not only do you have the option for a standard snack box (which is our Signature Box) with everything in it from above and more, there’s also Seoulbox V, which offers vegetarian options for our Seoulmates, as well as our Seoulbox Life, which gives you more in-depth insight into Korean lifestyle by sharing with you more Lifestyle products than the standard box.

About the author: Suji was studying in London in the year 2019 and, although being separated from her family, her passion for Korea was growing. She noticed that a lot of her close friends loved Korean culture, food, music, and dramas and gradually started to fall in love with Korea, but there weren't many opportunities to actually "experience" this wonderful nation!

Suji was aware of what she needed to do to introduce Korea to her friends' lives and, conceivably, to those of everyone else who was curious about a piece of Daehan Min-guk.
