People in the eastern part of Asia may not be the world's biggest drinkers, but they do drink for sure (the average person does anyway).


The exceptions in that part of the world tend to be predominantly Muslim countries like Indonesia.

Oh?
Well we gotta reach an agreement. You learn to sing and I go there for a binge. Life isn't worth living if you don't get to experience the good feels of a well placed low note reverberating through your rib cage.

It's just misinformation that a lot of Westerners have about Asia. If you're into Asia but don't like alcohol culture, Japan and South Korea are the last countries that should be in your list. Basically every country that isn't Islamic is going to have significant alcohol consumption.

Cultures don't revolve about alcohool. I can't imagine one that does. Sure, alcohool is a part of life but life rarely revolves around it unless you're an alcohoolic, for example here only a marginal section makes such a use of alcohool to get drunk, that is unless you are under the age of 30.

Just as I thought, South Korea and Japan are the heaviest drinkers in Asia, on par with Americans and Canadians in Japan, and most European countries in South Korea. These stereotypes that East Asians are a chaste, innocent population need to die at some point.

You sound ... youthful. Works well when you're young, and in fact, dehydration is really what causes hangovers. Drinking water does help. Avoiding hangovers, though, becomes more difficult for a lot of people as they get older. We just don't tolerate the physical abuse as easily anymore. You can drink until you're sick when you're in your 20s and never get a hangover... I seem to get a hangover 30 minutes after having a beer, nowadays.

What does drinking sake or rice beer have to do with being "chaste" or "innocent"? There are still lots of clubs and bars and discos etc. around east Asia. But the allergy to alcohol is prevalent, and they still don't have a culture of pubs and binge drinking like some other places in the world. Despite being affluent, with good disposable incomes to spend on entertainment, neither Korea nor Japan is in the top 25 of countries based on per capita alcohol consumption. Heck, the U.S. isn't in the top 25 either. Nor is Canada.
