Soju is crazy with calories, something in excess of 500 per bottle.

I was told makgeolli has about 25 times the anti-oxidants as red wine, but I have no idea if it's true or not. I pretend it is, because I love drinking it.

Makeoli might have the most since you would almost always mix with some form of cider.  And it's so easy to drink :) you probably consume more volume.  Not to mention, the greasy pancakes that is always served with it.  With that said, not gonna stop drinking it, but just sayin'.

I'm gonna take the OP in the "spirit" it is served and consume roughly twice my daily calorific intake by around midnight tonight...of all the above. The reasons are twofold, firstly it's Friday and secondly it may be our last....

The Ks once gave me five minutes notice. I didn't know what to do with the extra time.

Isn't every Friday the first Friday of the week? You're drunk already, aren't you!?
