This is my response:

 

drown by alcohol

economy will decline

fearsome soju bomb

 

NB Soju refers to local brewed rice wine, with an alcoholic content of less than 20%, and is an easy smooth drink, without diluting with water. It mixes with beer or even coco-cola to become a bomb. It is sold all over Korean shops; easy availability to any age group. A bottle cost only 1600 KRW, beer 3000KRW, mineral water 1000-2000 KRW. Many imbibe alcohol all day long; even the more expensive imported wine. Alcoholism has become a culture for the young; smoking is also on the increase. I am not an expert; it’s a tourist observation.
