SOUTH KOREA’S MOST TREASURED DRINKING CULTURE

SOUTH KOREA’S MOST TREASURED DRINKING CULTURE

This post is contributed by www.10mag.com. It’s a website where you can find guides for the best places to go or lists on the most interesting foods to eat in South Korea. It provides insight into what life is like there for locals and expats alike!


South Korea has a long dated history, through the passing of the years, some of its oldest traditions are still being passed to younger generations. One of them is their drinking culture. South Koreans are one of the biggest consumers of alcohol in the world.
Drinking CultureHowever, contrary to popular belief, Koreans don’t drink to the sole purpose of getting drunk. Getting together for a drink is to build up relationship with our peers, whether that may be our friends or our colleges at work.

Koreans drink to set the mood, rather that only consume alcohol. A drink can stimulate the appetite, perk up the atmosphere and keep the conversation going.

During drinking sessions Koreans have a variety of alcoholic drinks; normally during after-work get-togethers beer used to be consumed, but in recent years Soju’s consumptions has been overshadowing beer’s consumption with more people, ordering Soju’s newest alternatives: “Flavored Soju”.

DRINKING ETIQUETTE

Since the olden days the younger seek to learn good manners from their elders, to this day, South Korea keeps the drinking protocol as one of the most treasured traditions.

Drinking Culture


When consuming alcohol with South Koreans it isn’t about how much you can drink, like said before;

“People are drinking to enjoy relationships and hobby activities rather than for the drink itself”

                                                                                                                                                                          – HA JONG-EUN

President of the Korean Alcohol Research Foundation

 

There is also a saying that goes:

一不,三少,五宜,七過

One glass is not enough,

Three is still lacking,

Five is just right,

Seven is over drinking.


So try not to overthink it and just enjoy it.

Bear in mind that even though you have every right to say no, South Korean can be pushy when it comes to drink so be prepared for your refusal to drink be refused. Because drinking is to strengthen the bond between your peers, if you refuse without giving a good reason it can be taken as you don’t want to be part of it.

These are some of the most acceptable excuses for not drinking, most South Koreans won’t insist after you’ve given a “good” reason as of why you can’t drink.

Drinking CultureYou are pregnant Drinking CultureYou are the designated driver. Drinking CultureYou are taking medication.
Drinking CultureYou can’t drink because of your religion. Drinking CultureYou have alcohol allergies.
Personalities by Blood Type In Korea

Personalities by Blood Type In Korea

a

Referred as ‘farmers’ in some descriptions, Type A’s are said to be considerate of others and loyal to a fault.

They can also be secretive and reluctant to share their feelings.

Apparently they don’t hold their liquor well, either.

b
Referred to as ‘hunters’, Type B’s have very independent natures and tend not to be concerned about what other people think of them.

Although often described as shallow and lazy, they can be quite passionate about the things they hold dear.

Patience is not their strong suit either.
Type B men have acquired a very negative reputation in Korea and are not considered by many to be good husband material.

Often described as ‘players’, they are perceived as being selfish and mercurial, quick to anger and not terribly reliable.

That said, their bad boy image makes them very attractive to women, but not for the long term. (Type B women do not share in this bad rep, for some unexplained reason).

 ab
Referred to as ‘humanists’, Type AB’s are said to be controlled more by their heads, than by their hearts.

They are rational, good with money, but unpredictable.

Although inclined to be distant, they prefer harmony and as such, work well with mediators.

Some consider them two-faced, and therefore untrustworthy.

 o
Referred to as ‘warriors’, Type O’s are viewed as natural leaders and are often, also, natural athletes.

They tend to be outgoing, expressive and passionate, but can also bore others to death with their obsessive drive for success coupled with their absolute convictions that they are winners.

This certainty that they will always win explains why they aren’t afraid to take risks or gamble.

They have a strong physical presence and are unlikely to ever be overlooked.

Let’s get to know about Korea while reading them.


1. Two Brothers 형님 먼저 아우 먼저

1437362865595

A long time ago, there lived two brothers whose loving ways were the talk of the valley where they lived.

They took care of their widowed mother and upon her death they divided everything evenly.

Together they worked diligently from sunup to sundown to produce the most they could from their fields.

It never failed that come autumn they had the largest harvest in the valley.

One late autumn evening, after they had spent the afternoon sacking and dividing the last of the rice harvest, the older brother thought,

“Brother has lots of expenses since he just got married a few months ago. I think l wiIl put a sack of rice in his storehouse and not tell him. I’m sure he would never accept it if I offered it to him.”

So, late that night, he carried it to his brother’s storeroom.

The next day, while tidying up his own storage, the older brother was surprised to find he still had the same number of sacks of rice as he had before taking one to his brother.

“That’s odd,” he said, shaking his head, “I’m sure I took a sack of rice to Brother’s house last night.” He counted his sacks again.

“Well,” he was scratching the back of his head, “I’ll just take him another one tonight.”

So, late that night. he carried a sack of rice to his brother’s house.

The next morning, he was again shocked to find he had the same number of sacks as before.

He shook his head over and over and decided he would take his brother another sack that night.

After a late dinner he loaded the rice and set out for his brother’s house.

It was a full moon and he could see the path quite clearly.

Soon he saw a man carrying something bulky coming down the path.

“Why, Brother!” they both called out at the same time.

The two brothers put down their sacks and laughed long and hearty for they both understood the mystery behind their unchanging number of sacks of rice.

The younger brother thought his older brother could use the rice because he had a larger family.

 


2. The Disobedient Frog 청개구리 이야기

A young frog lived with his widowed mother in a large pond. A rascal and a trouble maker, he never listened to his mother and caused her much grief and embarrassment.

If his mother said go play on the hillside, he went to the seashore. If she said go to the upper neighborhood, he went to the lower. If she said do this, he did that. Whatever she said, he did the opposite.

“What am l going to do with that boy?” she mumbled to herself. “Why can’t he be like the other boys? They always listen and do what they are told. And they’re always kind and respectful. I don’t know what will become of him if he keeps behaving like this. I have to do something to break him of his bad habits.” Mother Frog sighed deeply.

“Ha! Ha! Ha!” Little frog laughed. “Hush all that mumbling. You don’t have to worry about me. I’m doing fine just the way l am.”

“Is that so?” said Mother Frog. “Then why can’t you croak properly? You don’t even sound like a frog. Let me teach you.” With a smile, she puffed herself up and let out a loud Kaegul! Kaegul! “Now you try.”

Grinning broadly, Little Frog puffed himself up and let out a loud Kulgae! Kulgae!

“Why you impudent little rascal! You’re going to be the death of me!” cried Mother Frog. “You’ll Iisten to me if you know what’s good for you. Now you…”

Kulgae! Kulgae!” croaked Little Frog, hopping away.

Day after day Mother Frog scolded her young son but he continued to do as he wished and just the opposite of what she said. She fretted and worried so much about him that she became ill. Still he continued to misbehave.

One day she called him to her bedside. “My son,” she said, “I don’t think I will live much longer. When I die, please don’t bury me on the mountain, bury me beside the stream.” She said this because she knew he would do the opposite of what she said.

A few days later Mother Frog died. Little Frog cried and cried. “Oh my poor mother! I worried her so much by misbehaving. Why didn’t I listen to her?” he scolded himself. “Now she’s gone. I killed her. I kiIled her.”

Little Frog thought about his mother and all the trouble he had caused her. Then he told himself, “I always did the opposite of what Mother said because it was fun. But this time l will do exactly what she told me to do.”

So Little Frog buried his mother beside the stream, even tough he did not think it was very wise.

A few weeks later there was a storm. It rained so much the stream overflowed its banks. Little Frog could not sleep for worrying that his mother’s grave would be washed away. At last he went to the grave to keep watch.

In the pouring rain he sat, crying over and over, “Kaegul! Kaegul! Please don’t wash my mother away!” And that is what he did every time it rained.

And ever since then, green frogs have cried Kaegul! Kaegul! when it rains.

 


 

3. The Sun And The Moon 햇님 달님

tale

Once upon a time, there lived a poor woman with her son and daughter. She did chores for other families for a living. One day, she went to work for a rich man’s party and got some rice cakes there.

“My children must be hungry,” said the woman hurrying home.

On the way home, she met a big tiger. “Give me a piece of rice cake. Then I will not eat you,” said the tiger. The woman gave a piece of rice cake to the tiger. But the tiger kept following the woman.

“Give me a piece of rice cake. Then I will not eat you,” repeated the tiger. The woman gave another piece of rice cake to the tiger. The tiger kept asking her for more rice cakes. She gave away all the rice cakes to the tiger. Now she had no more rice cake. So the tiger ate her.

Now the tiger put on her clothes and went to her house. He pretended to be the children’s mom. “Open the door, dear,” said the tiger.

“You are not my mom. Your voice is too hoarse. Her voice is soft,” said the brother.

“Oh, is it? Hmm, I have a cold.”

“Then, show me your hands,” said the sister.

The tiger showed his hands to them.

“Your hands are too hairy and dark. Her hands are white,” said the brother.

The tiger covered his hands with flour. And he showed his white hands to the children. Then the children opened the door. The tiger entered the house saying “I will make dinner. Wait here.”

Then, the brother saw the tiger’s tail.

“It’s not Mom. It’s a tiger,” said the brother.

“What should we do?” said the sister.

“We have to run away from here,” said the brother.

The children ran out of the house and climbed up a tree near the well. The tiger looked for them here and there. Then, he saw the children’s face reflected on the water inside the well.

“Oh, you are in the well. I will scoop you up with this bowl,” said the tiger.

The sister in the tree laughed at the tiger. “Oh, you are in the tree.”

The tiger tried to climb up the tree but he could not do it.

“How did you climb up the tree?” said the tiger.

“We used oil,” lied the brother.

The tiger rubbed some oil on his hands. And he tried to climb up the tree. But he only slid down. Laughing at the tiger, the sister told the secret of how to climb up.

“You could use an ax,” said the sister. Then the tiger made small cuts on the tree with an ax. Then, he could climb up the tree.

The children were frightened so they prayed to God. “If you want us to live, please hand down a rope,” pleaded the children as they looked up towards God.

Then a rope came down from the sky. The children held onto it and went up to the sky.

The tiger could not catch the children. The tiger prayed to God, too.

“If you want me to catch them, please hand down a rope.”

Then another rope came down from the sky. The tiger held onto it and went up to the sky. But the rope was rotten. The tiger fell down.

The children went up to the sky.

The brother became the sun and the sister became the moon.

“I am scared of the night,” said the sister.

“I will be the moon for you instead,” said the brother.

So the brother became the moon. And the sister became the sun.

 


4. The Silver AX and The Gold AX 금도끼 은도끼

10172_33081

www.byillust.com

A long time ago, a magician lived in the lake. One evening, when the woodman cut down a tree with an iron ax, he dropped the iron ax in the lake, so he cried because he didn’t have another ax or enough money to buy one. He cried nearby the lake. Just at that time, the magician appeared there, and said, “Why are you crying?”

The woodman said, “I dropped my iron ax in the lake”, and then the magician disappeared into the lake.

Afterwards he appeared standing on the lake with a silver ax and he asked, “Is this yours?”
The woodman answered, “It’s not mine”, so the magician again went into the lake and then appeared in front of the woodman with a gold ax. But this gold ax was not his, so the magician went into the lake and appeared with his ax. Only then the man said, “It’s mine”.
The magician said, “You didn’t lie so I’ll give you all three axes, your ax and the gold and silver axes. Afterwards, the man sold his axes for a lot of money; so then he became a rich person.

Another woodman heard this story. So this woodman went there and intentionally dropped his iron ax and then he pretended to cry, so the magician also appeared in front of his eyes, and he asked, “Why are you crying?”
He answered, “I lost my ax.” The magician went into the lake after the conversation and appeared with a gold ax.
He asked, “Is this yours?”

He answered, “Yes”, so the magician disappeared at once. The man had nothing, not even his ax.


5. Blind Man’s Daughter 심청전

12132

Many years ago there lived a poor blind man called Shim. He and his wife were childless, and never a day went past when the couple did not pray to the spirits for the blessing of a child. It was only after many years that their prayers were granted, and Shim’s wife gave birth to a beautiful daughter whom they named Shimchong. But sadly, the mother died soon after giving birth, and poor blind Shim was left to bring up the child alone, as best he could.

The years went by, and Shimchong grew into a beautiful young woman, devoted to her father.

One day, Old man Shim was walking out alone when he fell into a deep ditch that brought water to the fields. Every time he tried to scramble out, he slid back again into the mud. He had started to think that he would die in that ditch, and he was bemoaning his fate when he heard a voice speak to him from above.

“Old man,” said the voice, “We have heard you complain many times about your blindness. If you will give 300 sacks of rice to the temple as an offering to Lord Buddha, then we monks will pray for you to be able to see once again.”

The old man cried out, “Good monks! Only save me now and return me safely to my daughter, and I will gladly offer you whatever you ask to give to Lord Buddha!”

No sooner had he spoken, than he felt gentle but firm hands lift him up and out of the ditch – to the blind old man it seemed that those hands had reached down from heaven itself. Shim was so grateful for his rescue that he thanked the monks again and again, and swore that he would bring the 300 sacks of rice to the temple.
It was not until later, when he was already home and dry, that he realised that he had no chance of keeping his promise to the monks.

“Oh Shimchong,” he said to his daughter, “What shall I do? We are so poor that I could not offer three bowls of rice, let alone 300 sacks. Now what a terrible fate will befall us? I have offended Lord Buddha himself!”

Father and daughter both began to weep, for neither of them could think of any way to pay their debt to the temple. That night, as Shimchong lay awake, unable to sleep, her mother appeared to her and said, “Go down to the harbour tomorrow. There you will find a merchant looking for a young girl. Go with him, and he will provide the 300 sacks of rice.”

It so happened that the Dragon King of the East Sea was angry with a rich merchant, and he had sent storms to sink the merchant’s ships on the way to China. After losing ship after ship in this way, the merchant had consulted the high priest of the Dragon King’s temple, who told the merchant that he must take a beautiful young maiden out to sea and sacrifice her to the Dragon King.

The merchant offered a great quantity of gold to any family that would give up their daughter to the Dragon King of the East Sea – but none would enter into such a terrible deal. Then Shimchong appeared at the harbour, and she went to the merchant and offered herself in return for 300 sacks of rice to be sent to her father. The merchant could not believe his luck. 300 sacks of rice was nothing to him – a low price indeed!

Although the merchant sent 300 sacks of rice to the temple, and the monks did indeed pray for the return old man Shim’s sight, nothing happened. Now not only was he poor and blind, but he had lost his daughter too – he was utterly alone.

Shimchong boarded the merchant’s ship, and the ship put out to sea. At first the waters were calm, but then the Dragon King began to thrash his tail and the waves started to toss the ship to-and-fro.

The merchant told Shimchong to put on her brightly coloured wedding dress, and then he brought her out of the hold and up onto the deck. Shimchong quietly said a prayer, and then leaped over the side of the ship and into the waves. As soon as she had disappeared the violent sea grew calm again. The sailors wept because they had never seen a girl at once so beautiful and so brave.

Shimchong sank deeper and deeper into the icy cold sea. When she opened her eyes, she was surrounded by bright fish of every colour and shape, and they lead her to the palace of the Dragon King of the East Sea. There she lived, happily at first, but it was not long before she began to miss her father deeply, and she began to look sad, and sometimes there were tears in her eyes.

At last, the Dragon King could no longer bear to see the lovely girl looking so sad. Her devotion to her father touched his heart, and as a reward for her goodness, he sent her back to the world above, only first he transformed her into a lotus flower.

A fisherman found the giant lotus blossom in the mouth of a river, and he was so overcome by its beauty, that he decided to make it a gift to the king of the land above. His queen had recently died, and he was in deep mourning. When he saw the flower, his eyes lit up in wonder. He thanked the fisherman with gold, and set the flower up in his room, and every time he felt sad, he stood and looked at it, admiring its beauty.

What he did not know was that each night, when the palace was asleep, Shimchong would come out of the blossom and walk through the many beautiful chambers and halls, and at first light, she would merge back into the flower.

One night, the king could not sleep so he got out of bed and drew the blinds to let the moonlight into his room. He turned around and was amazed to see the most beautiful woman he had ever beheld.

“Who are you?” He asked, “Are you a spirit?”

The girl tried to merge back into the lotus blossom, but it had vanished. She could not say who she was, for surely the king would not believe her story. The king could not help but fall in love with her, and she was moved that so powerful a man could be so gentle and so sincere.

Not long after, they were married, and on their wedding day he said to her, “My blossom. Now you are my Queen. Anything you wish, I shall grant. All you have to do is tell me your desire.”

Shimchong replied, “There is only one thing I wish for. Let there be a great banquet to celebrate our marriage, and may all the blind men of the kingdom be invited to dine with us.”

His bride’s wish was strange and unexpected, but the king gladly granted it. They held a banquet, and blind beggar men came from all four corners of the land to feast at the table of the king. The new queen watched from behind the silk curtains, hoping to catch sight of her father. Though hundreds and hundreds of blind men came into the banqueting hall – not one was her father.

The queen had given up all hope of seeing him. “He must have died of grief when I went away,” she thought sadly to herself. But one of the king’s kindest and most faithful stewards called out, “Do not close the doors for there is one more beggar for the banquet.”

An old man entered the hall, and leaned on one shoulder of the steward. His clothes were ragged, he was covered with dust from the journey, and he was so weak he could hardly walk.

Shimchong came out from behind the curtain and held his hand. “Father,” she said, “It is I.”

When the old man heard that familiar and much loved voice of his daughter, he opened his eyes and could see.

And that was the story of the Blind Man’s Daughter.


6. ANGEL AND WOODCUTTER 선녀와 나무꾼

Ãß°¡-2

Once upon a time, an honest woodcutter lived in the mountain.  He lived alone; in addition, he was too old to marry.  

He always cut wood.  He was diligent, honest, and kind, and he had a warm heart.  

He always wanted to get married.

One day, he went to the mountain to cut the wood and suddenly, a deer appeared in front of him.  

And the deer asked, “Please help me, please, hide me.  A hunter is following me.  Please. help me!”  so he hid the deer.  

The hunter came to the woodcutter.  The hunter asked about the deer.  

He answered,  “I don’t know about a deer, I didn’t see it.”  The hunter went back.  The deer could talk.  

The deer said, “Thank you very much.  Please, tell me your hope.  I can help you.”  The woodcutter answered, “I’d like to marry with someone.”  The deer said, “There’s a pond up the mountain; on the 15th midnight, an angel comes down and takes a shower.  

At that time, you can conceal her clothes but you don’t have to return her clothes until you get three babies.”  He promised.

On the 15th midnight, he went to the mysterious pond, and he took the angel’s clothes.  

So the angel couldn’t fly back to the sky.  He concealed her clothes.  After that, they got married, and lived happily.

Korean Drinking Games That You Can Play With Your Friends.

Korean Drinking Games That You Can Play With Your Friends.

Playing games while drinking is an important and vital ingredient to your success in adapting to Korean culture.

Usually, you need four or more people to play these games, and there is a Penalty Drink that is made before the start of the game.

Don’t worry if you keep losing!

You can always ask for the “Black Knight” if you want someone else to take the penalty for you.

But remember, calling out for a knight comes with consequences, one that totally depends on the person you pick.

How black knight works [흑기사]: You pick a person to take the penalty for you (usually they accept), and you must return a favor of their choice.

If you’re unlucky, they might reject your call, which means you need to drink twice the amount of your original penalty drink.

**all the games are based on non-alcoholic drinking games.

 Let’s Begin!

Mandu

You can play this game with two people but you could even modify it and play with more. Each hand is either a closed fist for zero or open for five. So the options with two people are 0, 5, 15, or 20. Both of the players shout out the number they think will be up. So, if I say 5 and my friend has two fists and I have one fist and one open hand I win and he drinks. If we are both wrong, both drink. If we’re both right, no one drinks.

Cowboy

Put everyone into a big circle. The person who begins counts to three, but instead of saying three he can say any number between two and twenty. When the first person says “three” everyone in the circle should fire their “gun” at someone else in the circle. Then the first person who said “three” starts the count from one, following his gun to the second person who says two, who follows his gun to the third person who says three continuing in this fashion until the number the first person said is reached. Whoever is that person must drink.

Soju

Bottlecap

This game comes with the bottle of soju! Take the cap. Twist the end part of the cap so that it sticks straight out. Now each person takes a turn flicking the end trying to flick it off from the base of the cap. Whoever succeeds enjoys sobriety while everyone else drinks.

Tap

The guy who starts taps their mug on the table once. The next person to his right can tap once, which passes it to the next person on his right, or twice which sends it back to the person on the left, or three times which skips the person the right and goes to the next person after that. Whoever screws up must drink.

Napkin, Beer, Cigarette

A napkin is placed over a beer mug. On top of that is a 100 or 500 won coin. Now the players take turns burning holes into the napkin with a lit cigarette. The player who drops the coin into the mug must drink.

happy together

Son Byung Ho Game

Everyone holds up 5 fingers & take turns saying something they’ve done. Anyone who has also done that must take down a finger. The first person with no fingers left drinks.

King Game

Have cards equal to the number of players, with 1 king. Everyone draws a card & hides it. The person who draws king can call out numbers & actions. People with those cards can do the actions or drink.

Titanic

Fill a cup half way with beer & float a shot glass in the drink. Everyone takes turns pouring Soju into the shot glass. The person who sinks the shot glass must finish the whole drink.

Cup Tapping Game

Everyone sits in a circle. Someone starts by tapping their cup once to pass to the right. The next person can tap their cup once to pass or twice to pass backwards. If you mess up, you drink.

dog
Noonchi Game

The objective is to not be the last one to call a number. Everyone collectively counts up. If two people call out a number at the same time, both drink. If you’re the last to call a number, you drink.

Noonchi  is a Korean concept signifying the subtle art and ability to listen and gauge others’ moods. In Western culture, noonchi could be described as the concept of emotional intelligence. It is of central importance to the dynamics of interpersonal relationships.

Apartment Game

One person yells a number equal or less than the number of players.

Players quickly put their hands in a stack on the table. Whoever’s hand is in the position of the number yelled, must drink.

3-6-9

This game is simple but tons of fun. Get your group of friends together with the drink of their choice in hand and ready to be consumed. The object is to say the numbers out loud starting from 1 but you must clap instead of saying a number that has a 3, 6, or 9. So if the person before me says 8 I would clap once for 9, but if it’s my turn and the number is 39 I would have to clap twice. Whoever ends up saying 3, 6, or 9 must drink! Then it goes back to 1 and starts over again.

To make things tougher you could be devious and insist that even numbers divisible by 3, 6, or 9 cannot be said either. Drunken division is never a pretty sight.

Rabbit

Everyone gets in a circle. The person who starts says bunny bunny with hand motions  like a rabbit eating with your four fingers over your thumb, then he gives it to someone else who then gives it to someone else. But at the same time the people on either side are saying Tangeun Tangeun (carrot carrot). Whoever messes up drinks!


Baskin Robbins 31

Everyone can count up to three numbers. The first person starts with one, and they can stop counting at one, two, or three. Then, the next person will count up to three numbers starting where the first person left off.

Person 1: “One, two.”

Person 2: “Three, four, five.”

Whoever makes a mistake and counts more than three numbers has to drink. However, whoever says 31 also has to drink, so be careful of how low or high you count!

This game is easy and fun but can get confusing if someone playing doesn’t know how to count in English or if someone playing doesn’t know how to count in Korean, which definitely happened when I was playing before!

Gyeongma Game or Horse racing game

The entire game is played with people drumming on the table with their hands to simulate the sound of horses racing on a track. You first go around the table in order calling out your “horse number.” Horse number 1 (일번말), horse number 2 (이번말), horse number 3 (삼번말), etc. Each person is a designated horse number. After you go around and identify which person is which horse number, the game starts. You take turns calling out your number and then the number of the one you want to “attack.” Usually, horse 1 starts it off.

ex. 일번에 삼번 1 attacks 3

Then number 3 would call out his/her number first and “attack” someone else by calling out their number. 삼번에 오번 3 attacks 5. You really have to listen carefully to see if your number gets called. If you slip up and miss your turn, you drink.

This game is meant to be played FAST. It gets really chaotic because everyone is banging on the table. Also, the same two people can go back and forth attacking each other.

“3 attacks 1!”

“1 attacks 3!”

“3 attacks 1!”

“1 attacks 3!”

etc.

Once a round is over and someone drinks, the drinker becomes horse 1 and the numbers reset again. It keeps you on your toes because your number changes each round. Depending on how difficult/fun/evil you want to make the game, you can choose to omit the number introduction in the subsequent rounds after the numbers have been reset and start attacking right away.
