This story is about how I met my Korean boyfriend for a few years, I lived in South Korea. Koreans love to play drinking games, and Truth or Dare comes up a lot. One of my close friends there was always daring us to do really weird or slightly embarrassing things.
Most of the time, no one would take her up on her offers. One time, we were out at dinner, playing our usual drinking game, and there was a group of guys sitting a few tables away. I noticed that one of them looked like a Korean singer, Jay Park, and I pointed him out to my friend.
Famous Korean Drink "Soju"
She said: "I dare you to go and ask him if he is Jay Park and get his autograph." I laughed and said I wouldn't. We continued to eat our meal and order another bottle of Soju, a kind of Korean alcohol. Well, after a few more bottles, the dare was brought up again, and money became involved as well.
This time, I accepted. I figured the guys probably didn't even speak English anyway. I walked over to the table and said: "My friend thinks you look like Jay Park. Do you get that a lot?" Turns out, he and his friends did speak English -- but it wasn't Jay Park.
The guy said that he'd never heard that before, but he was flattered, and we started up a conversation. After a few minutes, the group invited my friend and me to keep drinking with them. The group of us drank together for a few more hours and had a great time.
Lots of good conversation and lots of Soju. After we were all suitably drunk, we decided to hit up a noraebang (karaoke in Korean), and the guy even sang a few Jay Park songs for us! Haha. At the end of the night, one of his friends gave me his number.
We ended up dating for a while. Unfortunately, we had to break up when I left Korea. But at least my friend had to give me 20 bucks and we had a good time.
