[Entertainment/Press Article] Korean-Style Games in the Dinner Engagement





When travelling to experience different cultures it’s important to immerse yourself in that countries way of life and what better way to do that in Korea than by playing some Korean drinking games.

As many westerners will already know Soju , Makgollie and Maekju (beer) are a way of life here in Korea. If you weren’t big drinker before you came to Korea you probably are now.
So we here at the Colourful Daegu blog thought we would share with you a few Korean drinking games to help you really be a part of the Korean culture. (Also you will win a lot of brownie points with your Korean friends and workmates).



Titanic

What you need:
.Shot glass
.Beer glass
.Beer
.Soju

Fill your beer glass up half way and slowly add the shot glass so that it floats in the beer. Take turns to go around the table and add a little bit of Soju into the shot glass. The person who adds the Soju that tips the shot glass has to down the whole drink.
Be warned, Korean people will be pro’s at this.



Higher or Lower



What you need:
A glass bottle of Soju
The lid (only person can see the lid)

Inside the lid of every bottle of Soju is a number between 0 and 50. The leader with the lid must ask the first person to guess the number. The leader will go around the table telling the group if the number on the lid is higher or lower than the number they have guessed.  Leaders be warned, if the people playing manage to split the number the dealer must do a shot (as in all Korean drinking games the shot is always poured by someone else on the table so be nice to your friends).



The Lid Flick

What you need:
A bottle of Soju
The lid of the Soju bottle
Two shot glasses

If you have ever drunk Soju it’s likely that you have already played this game at some point but just in case you have somehow avoided this Korea tradition we included it anyway.
Open your Soju and wind the metal on the lid so that it looks like a straight stick.
Everyone around the table takes turns trying to flick the metal off of the lid.
You only get one touch of the lid per go so make sure you don’t adjust it.
You go around the table flicking the lid. Once you finally win and someone flicks the metal away the two people either side of the winner will drink a shot. Once again its good to remember that the winner will be pouring the two shots so be nice to everyone on the table.
Warning: The metal can flick off at a surprisingly deadly speed so make sure to guard your eyes while flicking.



Numbers

 What you need:
.A basic knowledge of the Korean numbers
.Soju
.Shot glasses

This game is not only traditional but helpful for foreigners trying to learn Korean. If you can remember your numbers after a few drinks then you will be well on your way to mastering Korean.
Sit in a circle.
Each person on the table is given a Korean number (Hana, Du, Set, Net……)
The youngest person starts and shouts a number. The person with that number will then shout someone else’s number. If at any point someone forgets their number or speaks their number when it’s not their turn then they drink.
The trick of the game is to say someone’s number without looking at them. Looking at the person next to you when saying someone else’s name is the perfect trick.



I Love You

What you need:
.A good sense of humour
.Drink of choice

This is a great game but it helps if everyone speaks the same language. The aim of the game is to not laugh. The first person must keep a straight face while you go around the circle saying the sentence ‘I love you _____.’ You must fill in the blank with the funniest answer you can think of. This is a great game if you know the people you are playing with quite well. Anyone that laughs has to drink.



Chopsticks
What you need:
.Drink of choice
.Chopsticks

Everyone sits in a circle. You must all have at least one chopstick. This makes it a great game to play when you are in a Makgollie bar. The first person must ask a question or say a statement referring to someone playing the game. Everyone points their chopsticks at the person on the table they think the statement or question applies to the most. That person must drink and say the next statement.
An example statement would be ‘The laziest person on the table’.

Have or Have not

What you need:
.Drink of choice

This is very similar to the western game ‘I have never’. Every one on the table sits with their hand out in front of them as if ready to receive a high five. Each person takes a turn saying a statement such as ‘I have not eaten a live octopus’ or ‘I have never been to Taiwan’. If you have done the statement that the players say you must put down one of your fingers. When all the fingers go down that person drinks. If you are hard core drinkers you can take a sip every time a finger goes down and down your drink when you lose all 5.
This is a great game to get to know people (as long as you think everyone will be telling the truth). If anyone is caught out lying, whether on purpose or by accident they have to do a shot.



Mando

What you need:
.Drink of choice
.Hands

In case you haven’t ever heard of Mando, it is a delicious Korean food but for the purpose of this game it is a great drinking game. Everyone puts their hands in the center of the circle and sings a little song. With every beat of the song, people in the circle open or close their hands (think hand puppets talking).
If it is your turn you must shout out a number at the end of the song. At the same time everyone either opens or closes their hands:
Maaaando, mando, maaando….mando,mando, (shout a number)

Each person counts as 5 so if there are 3 people playing you can shout 5,10 or 15.
If you guess the number right then you can sit out the round. The game keeps going until the last person has to drink all of their drink. This is a silly and really fun game.



These are only a few of the games played in Korea and they are great ways to get to know people better or a great part of the Korean culture to take home with you. Just be warned. Those Korean drinks are potent (the photography session for this article got messy) so play responsibly or just make sure you are really good and win every game.

    "Ta hiểu!" Cao Thăng khẽ gật đầu, mỉm cười, nói: "Ta không miễn cưỡng ngươi."

    Hắn vốn định nói mấy câu khách sáo, nhưng còn chưa kịp bắt đầu thì đã bị Kỷ Mặc nói toạc ra rồi. Hơn nữa còn tỏ rõ, không còn đường gì để thương lượng hét.

    Ngươi có bằng hữu của ngươi, ta có bằng hữu của ta. Ngươi không thể bán bằng hữu, ta càng không thể.

    Cao Thăng suy nghĩ trong lòng: Nếu Kỷ Mặc nói như vậy, chắc hẳn không phải là giả dối.

    Nhưng hắn không biết, mặc dù Kỷ Mặc không nói láo, nhưng vẫn có một điếm không nói ra. Hắn với dv không chỉ đơn giản là bằng hữu. Bọnhọ chính là huynh đeẹ!

    "Vị công tử này là...." Cao Thăng nhìn Nhuế Bất Thông.

    "Nhuế Bất Thông!" Nhuế Bất Thông gật đầu mỉm cười: "Cao đại thiếu, ngưỡng mộ đại danh đã lâu."

    "Ồ, Nhuế thiếu cũng là người của Trung Tam thiên?" Cao Thăng cảm thấy hứng thú hỏi: "Không biết gia tộc nào lại sinh ra được thanh niên tài tuấn giống như Nhuế thiếu?"

    "Thanh niên tài tuấn thì không dám nhận, về phần gia tộc... lại càng không có." Nhuế Bất Thông mỉm cười: "Cao thiếu quá đề cao ta rồi."

    "Ngươi không biết hắn?" Kỷ Mặc chỉ Nhuế Bất Thông, tỏ vẻ kinh ngạc hỏi: "Cao Thăng, không phải ngươi mới xuống dưới Hạ Tam Thiên lịch lãm sao? Ta còn tưởng rằng ngươi ít nhất cũng phải xuống một thời gian dài rồi đó?"
