soju wanna get a drink?

It burns the eyes!

I kind of have my doubts about this statistic. It seems too far off charts to even be possible.

South Koreans drink twice as much as Russians. Let that sink in for a moment. Twice as much.

13.7 shots of liquor per week. On average. A week. 13.7.  A week. Shots. Of liquor. On average.

Meaning some drink more than this.

I have a friend who works for an American company but is a liaison with a partner company, the Korean company Samsung. And let me point out that this man is a drinker. Only an Irish friend can compete with him. And yet after a few months in his role with Samsung his only comment to me was that he had to get out of the role because it would kill him (the excessive boozing) and ruin his marriage (ubiquitous use of prostitutes).
