Is home brewing beer legal in South Korea?

As a beer enthusiast, I've looked into the regulations around home brewing in South Korea. Interestingly, it is technically illegal to home brew beer in South Korea. This law dates back to the Liquor Tax Law of 1961, which prohibits brewing alcohol stronger than 1% at home. However, this law is seldom enforced, leading to a growing community of home brewers. It's a fascinating situation where a love for craft beer thrives despite the legal constraints.
