listener: jjongd, do you drink cocktails well?
jonghyun: many people seem to think that i wouldn’t drink cocktails or sweet alcohol well because they know i can’t drink… very well. but, no, i drink hard liquor and soju well. i drink strong alcohol well. i cannot even sip beers. many people get surprised by this. they say: “you said you can’t drink well!” i remember replying that, even though i can’t drink very well, soju and hard liquor are better. i actually had makgeolli (korean rice wine) a few days ago and thought that it wasn’t really something for me to drink.
