It’s about that time we talked about Korean Drinking Games. You need to learn them! You don’t necessarily have to use them to drink alcohol. You can do these with soda or water or whatever, but – of course – you can also do them with alcohol. Or, at least, you can understand what the people around you at the bars are doing, if you see people flicking things all of a sudden.

The cap flicking game, the high-low game, Baskin Robbins 31, and Sam-Yuk-Gu are the games we talked about in this video, and I think we did a fairly decent job of explaining them, considering how much we were drinking while filming. As soon as we got to dalki, though, we were totally freaking cooked. Soo Zee had lost too many rounds and suffered too many punishment shots. Then she tried to explain THE MOST COMPLICATED DRINKING GAME in a less-than-sober state. Seriously, we STILL don’t even know how to play this game.

The idea behind it is basic enough: someone calls out your fruit and a number, and you, without breaking the rhythm, have to say your name THAT number of times. When you start saying your name, though, in the clapping, is confusing. Do we say it at the beginning of the clapping cycle, or do we count that number backwards from the end? We asked the waiter, and he just said yes to everything. I think he was more like “my job ain’t to tell you how to play games!” and just tried to get away as quickly as possible. Or he could have been freaked out that Leigh was the one speaking to him rather than Soo Zee? Maybe he was nervous in front of the cameras? I don’t know. I’m sure some of you are just gonna be like “WHO CAREZ?! CUTE KOREAN BOY ON CAMERAAAHHH!!!” I know you. I can see what you’re thinking even if you don’t say it. OOOH you so Nasty!

If you do know the Korean drinking game that we butchered so terribly, here are some common two syllable fruit names in Korean that are best for this game!

Apple 사과 (sa-gwa)
Strawberry 딸기 (ddal-gee)
Mango 망고 (Man-go)
Lemon 레몬 (rae-mon)
Kiwi fruit 키위 (key-wee)
Cherry 체리 (chae-ree)
Grape 포도 (poe-doe)
Watermelon 수박 (sue-bak)
Pomegranate 석류 (seok-ryu)
Melon 멜론 (mel-ron)
Grapefruit 자몽 (jah-mong)

Anyhow, the place that we played those drinking games is awesome. We’re not sure if what we said about it in the video is true, but we heard a couple of people mention it. Papa YG supposedly owns the entire building across the street from us, and that restaurant is on the bottom floor. It’s a really cool place with a fun vibe, especially on the weekends, in which we often see people drunkenly dancing to the music blaring. And it goes on all night. Last weekend we stayed up till 6:00AM, after the sun rose, and when we walked past it to get our taxi home we saw people STILL there. Hell, I’m writing this blog post at 4:00AM on a Monday night as Music Monday exports, and I see people there now…ON A MONDAY NIGHT!

Otherwise, we were really happy to do another video with Leigh and Soo Zee. They totally feel like part of the Eatyourkimchi Nasty family now, and I hope you’re ok with seeing them in these videos. We’ve got something big planned this weekend for the lot of us, and we’re going to be doing more videos with them for that as well. Yay! We even bought mics for them so they can be mic’ed up, too! So next time, you’ll be able to hear them all a lot better :D

Also, sorry that this didn’t come out on Thursday. We filmed it on Wednesday night, after Martina got her voice back, and then the project got corrupted right when it was finished and had to be entirely rebuilt. YARGH! Video editing can be so frustrating sometimes.

Otherwise, we’ve got a few bloopers and extra scenes from the night. Check em out if you feel like a few more laughs:


  1. I went there last night with some friends while we were exploring Hongdae! I also saw EYK Nasty Studios, but the neon sign wasn’t on… then again it was after 10PM I think.

  2. During my exchange in Korea I went out with my Korean friends to drink..so they thought it would be very interesting to play those games in different languages to make it more difficult LOL. Also, something I noticed is that when they lost, they said: “it was practice, let’s start for real now”…and with that a bottle of Soju went into practice LOL

  3. OMG!OMG!OMG! Kim Hyun Joong CUTENESS OVERLOAD! at first I had no idea what the video/song was about and then they started the drinking song I saw you guys doing :)) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=54I4hMmktGM

  4. Jolene 졸린 McConnell

    I think you should all go for wild boar or goat, but as those are very pricey, I vote for shabu shabu.

  5. Helloooooo! :D
    I have a suggestion,can the EYK crew all go to a chicken and beer restaurant and play “Shock” and “Titanic”? :’]

  6. Pogi means “Handsome” in Tagalog (Filipino), haha.

  7. Hahaha yay Korean drinking games! My uni friends taught me so many of them, but my favorite one is the Graveyard drinking game/ or Ah Shock! (?) Does anyone happen to know the song (lyrics) you sing before you start? I’ve forgotten it already :( I know the song doesn’t really matter, but I want to teach some other friends, song included :P Thanks!

  8. I hear HaHa’s You are my Destiny during sam yook gu! I love htat song… I’ll have to play these though.

  9. Ohkay. IM SO CURIOUS YEAAAH~ not anymore but yeah I was really curious about the ddalgi game or the “frying pan” game so I had to google it and I came up with this: http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20100815211757AA67ZA6

    It was really useful and I can actually understand the game now lol xD Hope you guys do too ^^

  10. I love that game!(아이 엠 그라운드) I always play it with my friends but I lose…ㅠㅠ

  11. I really think you guys should drink gojingamlae (i think that’s what it’s called), the soju/ coke/ beer drink and do a drinking video with that. My Korean friends made me drink them one night and it’s really fun… although the shot glasses kinda ended up smashing us in the face… but worth it!

  12. KATHyphenTUN

    OMG!!! Me and my friends would play that game in high school!!! ITS SO FREAKING COMPLICATED!!! RAWR!! But we would give flicks in the forehead if you messed up. We would do the four version not the eight. If you want them to mess up you just need to say the max number because you always miss the first one, while you’re trying to count backwards!! Haha nice to relive that game again!! Was so much fun watching you guise!

  13. We play the 31 game here in England, but we only do it to 21…

  14. also leigh’s Korean is super.pro :D

  15. I loved seeing the eyk crew film together! I hope they appear in more videos ^~^

  16. Oh,well… I cant concentrate to listen to your explanation. My brain just want to listen to Leesang’s Our Meeting and sing a long with it. “Uri jigem manna…”

  17. Thanks for this hilarious video. I will try some of this drinking games on my birthday this Friday. It will be a lot of fun (*≧▽≦)ノシ)) Oh, and it’s always a lot of fun to see you all four on screen :3 ♥~ ♫~

  18. I’m craving F.A.P F.A.P!! :,(

  19. well we can tell who can hold their liquor. While I don’t condone drinking, it was nice to see Leigh and Soo Zee out with you having fun. Also that bit in the beginning with the food was more like a FAPFAP than a WANK. It made me hungry. Thanks alot.

    • My immediate thought is, nice, I will always be the one with water, so I should be ok to learn the rules. Ha! Except, I will need to go to the bathroom often. *Sigh*

  20. Cool! I want to try these games now.

  21. Pelase can u sometime go to Vatos Urban Tacos!! please!!!

  22. Go back to Dday in Ansan! haha

  23. As always, I enjoyed this W.A.N.K. but it finds me in a really weird place. Last week a guy I used to work with went out on his Birthday, drank too much, and got in a car accident where a woman was killed. He will likely spend time in jail, his career is gone, and he will forever have to deal with the fact that he was involved in the death of another human being.

    Let me say the EYK crew was in no way promoting irresponsible drinking — and I’ve had my share of Soju and everything else under the sun — but PLEASE, PLEASE, Nasties, if you drink don’t get behind the wheel of a car. There is already enough sorrow in this world…

  24. Idk if you guys know this game, but my friend brought this one back from his study abroad time in Korea.

    You have to do worse to the person next to you of whatever the person before you did, otherwise you drink. So if A taps B on the shoulder, B pokes C, C nudges D, D lightly hits E, E punches F… but then F doesnt want to punch G really hard in the face, so F drinks. This can get dangerous if per se A hugs B, B kisses C on the cheek, and they C has to do worse to D… did I forget to mention you have to sit in a circle, alternating gender? PLAY AT YOUR OWN RISK.

  25. My Korean friends tried to teach me that fruit game. OMG IT’S SO HARD I STILL DON’T GET IT!!!! (I also think Soo Zee does it differently than I learned it. I never did the shoulder and head movements.)

  26. drinking games should be physical not mental.

  27. I don’t know if this is a typically Korean one, but certainly one I’ve only played there and my favorite! We called it “Titanic,” where you float the empty soju glass in a glass of beer and each person pours in a little soju. One who makes it sink, chugs!

  28. thisisjustforfunval

    I’ve never been very fond of drinking games but I would totally spend a night playing drinking games with the whole EYK CREW!

  29. “So, tonight at work, I tried to explain dddalgi to a bunch of foreigners, but they were too drunk to understand. I do not get paid enough.”- Cute Korean Guy.

  30. You guys should play the Subway game next time! Where you pick a line on the Seoul metro and then you have to name all the stops on the line without repeating

  31. Was Soo Zee designated to pour drinks for everyone? And why did she pour the drinks with her hand on her arm? I thought that was for shaking hands.

  32. We play sam-yook-gu in the Philippines too! But it’s boringly called three-six-nine instead of the Filipino tatlo-anim-syam. Meh xp
    Another popular game here is I never. All you do is say something you’ve never done. If the other people have done it, they have to take a shot. If they haven’t, no shot. The person who is most innocent/taken the least number of shots wins XD Hopefully everyone you play this with is honest about what they have and haven’t done, so that’s the only caveat…

  33. And SooZee 누나~ your hair color is really suit you and its really pretty~ and intern leigh 누나~ your dress is so pretty too~~ :3

  34. Guise~ can you tell me what song is that in the video at 5:24 mark? I’ve heard that song when i was in korea. But damn i didnt know the title is.. Thank you so much~~ i lavvvvv yuuu guisee~~

  35. Drinking games are so fun!!! My favorite part is yelling at the person who messed up to “DRIIINNNKKK!!”
    Have you guys heard of/ played the game bunny bunny?

  36. Carmina Canilao

    LOL. Funny how you guys read my mind ahah about the korean waiters. lol ~~~ kekekeke. You should so do drinking games with like random koreans around your age; or just the EYK crew would be good enough already since it’s like a 2 vs. 2 Game. Beer Pong is really popular now these days, maybe you can do SOJU pong to make it more Koreanized.

    You can read the rule about Beer Pong here (i googled it up):


  37. 2:18 looks like Luna from fx

  38. I was wondering when you were going to show us the drinking games…

    Even if you don’t drink (or don’t drink heavily), the drinking games are pretty funny.

    Here’s the 369 game on 1 Night 2 Days:

    Here’s the Strawberry game from 1 Night 2 Days (there are even funnier ones, but this is the one I could find first):

  39. How about the perfect pitch game? The one with accentuating a different syllable each time, from the first to the last one of the word. For example TEletubby teLEtubby teleTUbby teletuBBY. I’ve seen it played in 1N2D quite a lot so I guess it’s a drinking game as well.

  40. of course we’re more than happy to see leigh & soozee in the vids they are so cool & fun their personalities are all perfect :) love all you guys! this is definitely my favorite wank ever ;)

  41. leigh turns really funny when she drinks xp

  42. It doesn’t matter where you play these games or what kind of games you play…just play them, drink the alcohol and upload videos. Although I guess it would be interesting to do it at the SM building *having nasty thoughts* ke ke ke

  43. i was wondering. If i were to go to Korea and hang out with Korean friends would i be expected to drink? I can’t drink alcohol cause of medicine i take. Would they understand and give me a pass or would i still have to drink at least one shot?

  44. Can I get drunk and crunk with you guys? Also this video has gotten pumped to go partying (and drinking – lots of it) for my Prom on thursdays

  45. There’s a game that I like recently that has numbers but it’s not anything like those horrible math games. It’s basically the vocal version of musical chairs. However many people your playing with, you have to try to count aloud, one at a time to one number short. So of there are five people in your group you’re going to count up to four. One person says one number, in order stating from 1, then someone else will try to say 2, then 3, etc. However, two people cannot say the same number. If two people say the same number at the same time, everyone must start back at one. This continues until someone finally gets to four, at which time the person who didn’t say a number is punished. It sounds complicated, but it’s not. It is surprisingly hard to get all the way through without two people saying the same number though. It’s supposed to be done really fast so that nobody had time to think very much. ^^

    • Ooooh my favorite!! You gotta be the first one to start this game to sit back and enjoy other people screwing up by calling out same number at the same time. Oh that joy..

  46. Shelley Beh

    Awww I wanna play korean drinking games with you guys

  47. http://youtu.be/Ob4zBtYXdwc
    Do Koreans use the latin alphabet to find characters on their electronics?

  48. bleeping by bleating well played guies i laughed so hard. it fit the video so well!

  49. Can you guys do a video of Korean MT’s? I think that would be quite helpful for people that are planning to study or work in Korea.

  50. What restaurant/spot you guys doing this video at?!

  51. There’s certainly a degree of disinhibition towards the end of both video there :D Leigh was having too much fun I think

    Next time you guys should totally do it in a BBQ place, what’s better than Korean BBQ and drinking? They’re like the Bonnie and Clyde of the Korea, er, cuisine, erm, as shown in drama !

  52. OH MY GAWD CUTE KOREAN GUY!!! LMFAO!! U guys r awesome!! :D

  53. Cassie

    There’s a drinking game where you bang your chopsticks on the table like clopping hooves and you say the number of your ‘horse’ then the number of someone else’s ‘horse’…sounds weird in writing…I forget the name of it now, but I like that one.

    Also 007, where you point your finger at someone, and if you say ‘bang’ the two people to the left and right have to raise their arms…..
    Oh, and Zero! that’s my favorite drinking game.

  54. TOTALLY get Leigh and Soo Zee in more videos! They are awesome and we all wish we were in their shoes, working with you guys in the studio.

  55. I love how you know us so well :P. I was indeed oggling the cute waiter…I wish all the Nasties could fly to Korea and rent out a huge space (a bar would be far too small) and all chat and drink (if we choose to) and have fun together…We all feel so close to you guys even though you’re so far away. Another fun Wank and the blooper reel was the bomb!

    You need to do another video about drinking games and try to explain the Ddalgi game again, thoroughly, I’m so confused. I watched it 3 times, still confused and the explanation in comment form doesn’t really make sense…
    I fee

    • I’ve only played it up to 4, we call it the frypan game and just count instead of using fruit. So the steps are 1) slap legs/table, 2) clap, 3) left hand, 4) right hand. When your name/fruit is called, let’s say Mango, with the number, you have to say your name with the number of steps you got. But you say your name at the END. So if I got Mango 3, I slap my legs/table and then say “Mango!” with the last three steps before I pick someone else. If I got Mango 1, I only say it at the very last step.
      It’s much easier than it sounds, haha.

      • I’ve played this version too but only with names, not fruit and same as Michelle, only up to four counts per person. Plus the best part was the rhyme before hand “ting ting ting ting, tang tang tang, ting ting tang tang, hu-ry pan nori!” It helps set the beat. Explaining this game to people is virtually impossible, even sober.

        Another one that I vaguely remember was some counting game where someone shouts out a number and everyone points at two other people in the group and from the person that shouted the number you count people, going from person to person based on who is pointing at who. Whoever is the last person to be pointed at based on the number called has to drink. I think there was a rhyme that went with that also but can’t remember…

  57. Ahh I love EYK Crew. It is great that you are a proper family!

    On another unrelated note: @7d7499139ac52feac2d2e9c45f6821f8:disqus Have you seen the new SHINee Pv for Breaking News ? I think you will like it! Not show-tuney at all, more like their old style! You can see the whole thing here on AllkPop : http://www.allkpop.com/article/2013/06/shinee-has-breaking-news-for-fans-with-full-pv

    It is sooo good.

  58. When watching this I knew the bloopers would be glorious…..I was not disappointed…

  59. New Challenge for those who mastered their “Ddalgi game!” There’s a game called “Ddalgi Dang-geun Subak Chamoi Melon game(strawberry, carrot, watermelon, oriental melon, melon)”! You name those fruits repeatedly to the same beat EYK crew uses in Ddalgi game but since there are five fruits, you should name only four fruits on your turn and then the person next to you starts with ‘melon’.

    So it should go

    person #1 Ddalgi dang-geun Subak Chamoi
    person #2 Melon Ddalgi Dang-geun Subak
    person #3 Chamoi Melon Ddalgi Dang-geun

    and on and on and on until someone’s too drink to name them!

  60. Chubby Bunny!

  61. WHO CAREZ?! CUTE KOREAN BOY ON CAMERAAAHHH!!! lmfaoo he looks so confused! Thanks for the video EYK crew <3 (even though i'm not allowed to drink yet)

  62. LongClawTiger

    Please, please, please do the next drinking segment at that outdoor camping style grill place! What could be better than drinking games and the chance of flaming meat?
    As for the video itself, this was so much fun to watch! :) I felt so sorry for SooZee though. She really did look like she took more shots than anyone else. It made me wish I could tagteam in and take a few for her.

  63. I just can’t stop looking at that cute little red car in the background, it looks like it’s got a huge smile :D

  64. “Baskin Robbing 31″ …. Ah, the things spell check won’t catch ^_^ Made me giggle though~!

  65. I’m always soooo bad at the counting games. When with lots of Koreans I always play the “foreigner card” to get out of those ones.

  66. Yay EYK family :) baskin robbin 31 made me want ice-cream… it’s too late to buy some… *sigh*

  67. I love seeing drunk or at least tipsy EYK crew!!

  68. really nice music was playing in the background when baskin robbin 31 was introduced.any ideas what song that was?


  70. omg I always play the “ddalgi” game with my friends when we have sleepovers, its so much fun :D apparently its also a good preparation for Korea… xD btw the blonde hair looks really pretty ^^

  71. Akira Miyashi

    aww….so nice to watch the EYK crew together~! :D
    Soo Zee and Leigh should be in more videos!

    p/s: Baskin Robbin’G’?

  72. It’s great to see you guise having so much fun^^

  73. Have you guys ever played assa??? (아싸)i think thats how its spelled.
    well its really fun, im sure soozee knows how to play ^^

  74. BLONDE!
