    McDonald's customers in South Korea will soon be able to pair their favorite fast-food with a cold beer, NBC News reports.

    The franchise plans to offer beer with "premium" burgers at its newest location in Seongnam, near the South Korean capital of Seoul.

    Starting Feb. 22, when the restaurant opens, the "Signature Burger," which costs about US$6, can be upgraded for an additional fee to include a choice of draft beer.

    Although McDonald's offers alcoholic beverages in various European locations, this will be the first time an Asian location will serve anything besides soft drinks since 2004.
