Having competed in the latest season of RuPaul’s Drag Race, drag queen, YouTuber, and K-pop banger maker Soju Love stole our hearts, oozing cyst and all. Since the show, she’s been busy releasing her own scintillating pop songs – “Fall in Love Again” is on repeat – and building up her drag-dedicated variety show ‘Shot with Soju’ on YouTube, where you’ll find her reviewing Drag Race and interviewing alumni like icons Alaska and Alyssa Edwards.
This episode of Making It Up As You Go Along welcomes Soju to take on the challenge, where we give artists a box filled with random topics to pick out and discuss, no matter what their knowledge on the subject is. The drag k-pop idol and Chicago queen brings the finesse and polish of the Korean music world together with the grit and comedic spitfire of American drag culture; in this latest instalment, she talks thirsting over Troye Sivan on Twitter, learning English via Charlie’s Angels and having sexy thoughts about the iconic Lucy Liu, despite being “strictly dickly”.
Across this season of Making It Up As You Go Along, Dazed cover star Lil Nas X has weighed in on iconic memes and yeehaw culture, while drag artist and writer Crystal Rasmussen got real on the Olsen twins. Just last week, Harry Freegard told us why gays are allowed to shoplift at M&S and appraised Hugh Hefner’s great dressing gowns, and Doja Cat spilled on her Kermit the Frog crush.
Now, sit back and watch Soju consider turning straight for Lucy Liu, and stay tuned for future episodes.
