The Same but Different

This can of soft drink probably looks familiar to you even if you are unable to read the Korean script on the side. The writing on the can is in fact a phonetic Korean version of "Coca Cola - Light".

Yes..guess the can and style is very strong that even the fonts are in different language, everyone is still able to recognise it.

I find it funny that they will translate a universally-known brand name though.

Is it common for other big brands? I know I have seen a starbucks outlet written in korean in seoul.

Hi Murphy_Jay. I have seen many phonetic representations of well known brands including the home of the golden arches! Cheers...

So interesting that it's written in Korean. Nice to see that.
