Beer sales have continued to grow in South Korea as more offerings enter the market aimed at premium consumers. Foreign imported brands saw consumers switch towards full flavored beer, which led to domestic beer producers trying to reformulate their brands or produce new ones with higher malt content. Mainstream beers in order to compete with the premium and super premium beers have started to follow the trend of the premium beer through rebranding, reimaging, marketing and promotion of their current brands. For example, The Premier OB reduced the OB on its label and increased the Premier in order to make it stand out more. New entrants into the market such as Kloud have highlighted the brewing method of the traditional two brands, which water down a beer concentrate, leading consumers to think Kloud is more premium
