It is manufactured by the Dong-A Corporation; it is also distributed in the United States under the Dong-A America Corporation in a 3.3 oz glass bottle (approximately 1/3 the size of a Red Bull). Dong-A Pharmaceutical, a branch of the Dong-A Corporation, also manufactures Bacchus-D, one of the three original energy drinks in the world [See http://www.donga-pharm.com/Product/03_otc.jsp] .
