This is a second piece that deals with what it means to drink socially in Korean culture.  Korean drinking culture has a different social aspect than western social drinking.  With formality deeply set in society, people are often shy to express what they really think soberly.  Often, a friend is inviting another friend for a drink can be interpreted for a serious talk.
