fusillade762: "A problem with the way South Koreans drink is that they drink fast to get drunk fast,"

Problem? I'm already scheduling my next vacation.


A group of Koreans took me and a few others out to dinner early mid last year. I could not -believe- how much booze we all put down.  Apparently traditional Korean style dinner starts with booze, ends with booze, and has a lot of booze inbetween each course.

baconbeard: snake_beater: Once drank a whole bottle of soju on an empty stomach. Woke up on the floor in my own vomit the next morning.

WTF??? Soju has a bit of a kick, but it's not *that* strong. You'd better go get your ovaries checked.


See, that's what confuses me: I survived cleaning out a half-empty bottle of rum and two beers ewith barely a hangover but a bottle of soju makes me puke?

I drank Soju and Coke while at Kadena AB in Okinawa...then I got knocked out by a tree frog

/long story short.....aka "no shiat I was there"....

10th? Damn it people I'm doing the best I can. But I can't do it alone.

Yeah....after nights of lots of Soju and Cass beers at Chicken Two-Two and Hof (cheap place in Namdaemun)  - I have had to excuse myself from meetings at Samsung to puke in the corporate bathroom.

Good times for sure.

Good drinks....not a big fan of Korean food (other than the meats) though

Well, crap. If we want America to be #1 I'll have to drink more.

I have a buddy that's a big dude, professional diver, drinker; I can attest that the guy can hold his liquor in a serious way (together we have killed many bottles of scotch, sometimes in a single sitting).  However, last we hit the town in NOLA, we started with a mimosa breakfast, later moved on to beer, then old fashioneds, followed by sazeracs, then more (strong Belgian) beer (there may have been other drinks in there; hard to say for sure).  Come next morning, I was fine and he was violently ill; for some people it's not the amount so much as the type(s) of alcohol.

Soju is vile. It tastes like weak vodka with sugar syrup and pepper.

Shochuu, on the other hand, is killing my liver.

mayIFark: I have seen Japanese people drink 100 proof (they called it Sochu, not sure it is the same thing as this soju). It was a bunch of Americans and and Japanese drinking together, and we had no doubt in our mind who won.


They aren't the same, not in flavour or etymology.

Soju: 焼酒
Shouchuu: 焼酎

Shouchuu can be pretty good.
