Just a few more days left till it’s Christmas, some people organize end year party celebrations at work to show gratitude to each other. A lot spend it with families at their cozy homes and others who enjoy a hype night would go out enjoying parties for their year-end celebration. For this year, if you still have no idea what you’re going to do, I recommend throwing a party at home with friends and start off with JINRO soju, the perfect go-to-drink alcohol to enjoy with while playing drinking games. But mind that before throwing yourself into the pit, be prepared because drinking too much of alcohol can cause a hangover and it’s not something nice to go through.
JINRO soju is a Korean alcoholic drink that has been playing different roles for several occasions. A lot of Koreans believe drinking JINRO soju helps to build stronger relationships within friends or colleagues, some thinks it as an escape from reality from hard life or work. Nevertheless, JINRO soju plays a big part in Korean’s daily lives but how can they drink so much and still go to work in a good condition the next day?
Here are some tips how Koreans enjoy JINRO soju and preventing a hangover.
1. Pre-drinking prep
If you know you’re about to have a great night out, it’s always important to prep yourself and plan ahead before drinking. I find this very helpful before taking any alcohol. There are several pre-drinking pills and drinks Korean take it before drinking, it comes in various kinds, either capsule or liquid, and recently there are pre-drinking pack made into jelly so that it doesn’t taste bitter. One of the famous pre-drinking drinks that is the father of all Korean hangover drinks is Dawn 808. It comes in a small can and has a strong herbal taste. Then, there is Condition which comes in different varies of materials, and they have a drink specially made for ladies with extra vitamins and recipes included. Lastly, there’s Q-one Fresh Hwan which is said to be the most popular pre-drinking pills recently, and it has also made another version into jelly form so it’s easier for people to digest and eat it.
2. Hot soups
One of the most famous soups to chase over a hangover is called ‘Haejangguk’. It consists of vegetables and parts of meats in a comforting beef broth soup, but it comes in many different variations, such as soybean paste, spicy seafood food or fish cake broth soup. Another recommendation is of course Ramyun (Korean Instant Noodles). You can find it in any convenience stores and marts, and it is the easiest way to fill up your stomach before wanting to curl back into bed right away. The spice from Ramyun will help offset the consumption of alcohol from the night before.
3. Post-drinking cures
If there’s pre-drinking drinks, there’s definitely post-drinking cures as well. One of the most popular hangover go-to for Koreans is Oriental Raisin Tea. This recovery drink is well known for being an aid in relieving hangover. Not just hangover, but this drink also helps prevent dehydration after exercising. What’s even more great about this drink? Well, it contains 0 calories, which means no sodium, no saturated fat and no sugar! There’s another drink called Morning Care which also uses raisin tree extracts and other ingredients to help with the after drinking headaches. The company also boasts five different products for different categories of people.
4. Sauna soak (Jjimjilbang)
Sometimes after a heavy night of drink and not being able to go back home, Koreans often crash at a Jjimjilbang. Jjimjilbang is a Korean-style spa with 24-hour facilities equipped with amenities like steam rooms, hot tubs, saunas and sleeping quarters that are great for sweating out the toxins after a long night out. You can also take a shower to freshen up before going to work the next day. They also have a food court for those who are starving at night, I would recommend a popular beverage called “Sikhye” that is made from rice and it is believed to hydrate and help shorten hangovers. Yet, as sauna relaxes a person down, there are many alcohol-related accidents as well. If you fall asleep or pass out from dehydration from alcohol, it could be in dangerous. Please make sure to be cautious when staying too long for a sauna soak.
