Seven out of ten Korean college students think there is a problem with drinking at universities, but don’t have any willingness to fix it.
In a recent survey of 2,400 students by Diageo Korea across the nation, 70.5% acknowledge there is a drinking problem. However, due to university entrance parties, department parties and club events, drinking parties remain prevalent on college campuses.
According to the Korean Health Organization, 23 students have died from alcohol-related incidents in the past 10 years.
Only 20% of students said they would actively try to change the culture while the majority of respondents said they wouldn’t or can’t.
