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. 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. 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.

  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. 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. 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 ;)
