Unquestionably, Koreans like consuming alcohol on any occasion, according to KDrama fans. The drinking culture in Korea shows a lot about the country's social sturcture, lifestyle, and customs. In Korea, alcohol consumption aids in the formation and strengthening of bonds between family members and friends.
Similarly, there is little doubt that drinking is an influential element of Philippine culture and daily life. Drinking is a social activity in the Philippines primarily to develop camaraderie, form larger and wider circles, and celebrate the good, the bad, and everything in between.
South Korea has among the highest percentage of alcohol consumers on the planet. South Koreans consume the most liquor weekly, with 13.7 shots on average. And none of the other 44 nations studied by Euromonitor came close. The Russians, the second largest in Euromonitor's sample, take 6.3 shots per week, while Filipinos eat around 5.4 shots weekly, and Americans consume only 3.3. According to WHO data from 2018, people of the Republic of Korea consume 10 liters (2.2 imp gal; 2.6 US gal) of alcohol per year. The "bottoms-up" method of drinking entails drinking one shot at a time rather than a little sip each time. Whether drinking casually with a guest or binge drinking, statistics gathered on Koreans have categorized drinking occasions into five different types: going out with friends (44.2%), going out with colleagues (34.2%), drinking at home or friend’s home (29.3%), drinking at home alone, and drinking with meals at home (27.5%).
A study on the alcohol drinking patterns among Filipinos revealed that drinking is embedded in the Filipino culture: 45.5% of respondents said they drink alcohol to socialize, 23.8% drink to remove stress and burden, and 17.5% drink to be happy and gain pleasure.
Koreans and Filipinos are alcoholics in good and bad ways. A large majority of Koreans and Filipinos have regarded drinking as a necessary element of social life. Whether it’s during a time of joy, happiness, or stress, they often drink until they are drunk. Concerning their alcohol tolerance, based on the statistical data, Koreans are more potent and have a higher tolerance than Filipinos. Koreans can endure more of the intensity that liquors can give. Moreover, they have more active drinking habits than Filipinos.
If Koreans and Filipino "tambays" were to join a drinking contest, who do you think will win?
