One fan asked, “Did you get drunk on your birthday?” 

“I don’t like getting drunk,” RM replied, in English. That said, he doesn’t have strong feelings about drinking alcohol. “I don’t like or hate the liquor that much.” 

RM shared what his favorite drinks are and recommended a Korean drink, makgeolli, to fans who are of legal drinking age.

My favorite is…a couple of champagne, some wine, or beer. Actually, my real favorite is beer, which is draft. I prefer draft more. I also like makgeolli. It’s kind of like a traditional Korean liquor, so when you come to Korea or, you know, if you have some Korean restaurants around you, you should definitely try the makgeolli. It’s kind of sticky, but it’s really good.
