Soju - help!

A few weeks ago, I tried the Soju Martini at Cinnabar in Glendale, and have since been trying to replicate the recipe at home. One problem: a regular source for the key ingredient.

Soju is basically a vodka like spirit made primarily from sweet potatoes. Jinro Soju is apparently the number one selling spirit in Korea, China and parts of Japan.

I have tried 99 Ranch in the valley, which yielded a tiny bottle of green tea infused soju, but that was their entire selection. My usual source for obscure liquors, Vendome offered little help.

Obviously, an in-depth foray into Korea-town is called for, but I thought I'd see if anybody had any other ideas.
