Where can I buy Korean rice wine (for cooking) in Virginia?

A cookbook calls for ch'ongju, a rice wine from Korea. They say you can substitute vermouth, but I'd like to find the real stuff.

Korean markets in Maryland say they can't sell ch'ongju because they can't sell wine.

Is this something available at any HMart in Virginia? Or are there liquor stores that might carry it?

At one point, I was also looking for a Shaoxing rice wine for Chinese dumplings. Again, Maryland markets only have heavily salted variations.

Thanks.
