As noted in the report, South Koreans drink 13.7 shots of liquor per week on average, which is more than double the amount that Russians consume. The countries that follow after are the Philippines, Thailand, and Japan. The U.S. is ranked at #10 on the chart.
The reason for such a large liquor consumption is the country’s love for the fermented rice liquor called Soju, according to Quartz. The drink accounts for 97% of the spirits market.
Looks like we Americans need to step up our game.
