Twitter is Shocked That No One Knew About Yakult Before 'To All The Boys I've Loved Before'
The internet is freaking out because people had no idea about Yakult before To All The Boys I've Loved Before released on Netflix.
Netflix movie 'To All The boys I've Loved Before' is winning hearts everywhere, with everyone obsessing over the fresh treatment of a done-to-death story line, Peter Kavinsky (played by Noah Centineo), and Yakult. Yup, the pro-biotic drink has been flying off the shelves after the release of the movie on Netflix.
While the pro-biotic is referred to as the 'Korean yogurt smoothie' in the movie, people were quick to point out that it was Yakult. After multiple media reports on the brand's stocks rising up after the release of 'To All The Boys I've Loved Before' people are curious how no one knew about Yakult until now?
Let's get one thing straight: the drinks in the photo are NOT called "Korean yogurt smoothie," they are simply called YAKULT.
Plus, it's Japanese, right?

im watching to all the boys i've loved before and what in the world people called yakult as korean yoghurt drink??? people do that? — Mutiara (@msaftr) September 3, 2018
If To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before was set in the Philippines, Peter's Yakult gesture wouldn't be so grand because Yakult is fucking everywhere. Yakult is in every convenience store, Yakult is in your local sari-sari store, Yakult would even come to you via the Yakult ladies.
