Infinite’s Sung Kyu Says He Once Drank for 12 Hours Straight



Infinite’s Sung Kyu has recounted one long night of drinking in the past.

Sung Kyu recently appeared as a guest on the KBS health show, Vitamin for its special episode dedicated to helping protect your live during the alcohol-filled year-end holidays.

During the show, Sung Kyu shared, “Before I debuted, I once drank with my friends from night until lunch the next day and lost all recollection of what happened after.”

He added, “When I opened my eyes it was 11 p.m. and I was sleeping at home but I had no memories of what happened until I got home. After seeing the taxi fare confirmation text message, I was able to determine when I came home.”

Sung Kyu shared that after that incident, he decided to only drink in moderation from then on.

The episode airs on December 19.

I wonder what "moderation" means to him =P.

imagining the shenanigans he must have gotten up to when he was shitfaced and I'm like crying with laughter omfg T__T oppa pls

I don't get why people are applauding this kind of behaviour...
purekpopology 20th-Dec-2012 04:09 am (UTC)
1. He didn't do anything wrong. He drank with friends, and took a taxi.

2. Being drunk makes you act silly and usually those silly things are very funny haha. Thinking of an idol being that way makes me laugh, especially since they're always suppose to be so proper.

1. Um, drinking for 12 hours straight and to the point where you lose parts of your memory isn't wrong persay, but it def isn't admirable. I don't get why people are acting like this is funny because it's not. It's dangerous behaviour.

2. It's good that he realises what he did isn't the wisest thing and that he drinks in moderation now, but Infinite has a lot of young impressionable fans who might think it's cool to go on a bender now because their precious idol did (and it's even worse because Sunggyu is viewed as being especially responsible).
a_cheshire_grin 20th-Dec-2012 10:26 am (UTC)
Came here just to say that. Sunggyu is my bias in Infinite, but this makes me side-eye him a bit.

Of course it's his choice to drink and even though I don't drink alcohol, I've no problem when others do it, but they should know their limit. A lot of bad things could have happened, while he was unconscious.
I'm relieved that he realised his behaviour wasn't very responsible.
chunsakuma 20th-Dec-2012 10:39 am (UTC)
Yeah, ofc it's everybody's choice if they drink and if they do, how much they drink, but there has to be some sort of reasonable limit... hell, I like to get a bit tipsy occasionally, but I've personally never even gotten to the point of being sick (I refuse to let myself get to that point), so to me, the fact that so many people think it's normal or even commendable to go on an extended bender and get blackout drunk is absolutely mindboggling.

I have much less of a problem with Sunggyu in this post than with the comments tbh. At least he seems remorseful and realises that it's dangerous behaviour.
a_cheshire_grin 20th-Dec-2012 11:37 am (UTC)
Yes, some of the comments also give me the "Haha-everything-oppa-does-is-so-funny-and-we-don't-have-to-question-his-behaviour"-vibe. :X
moronicus_kyla 20th-Dec-2012 05:37 am (UTC)
well, in the context of the show he's appearing in, it's okay for him to share what happened to him. it's not some fun variety show that's full of idols who are out to share their stupid stories, it's a health program. they were probably discussing how wrong it was to do this and they probably even backed it up with research or whatever. i think sunggyu shared his story in order to contextualize the subject matter of the day and to get younger people to watch it. he does say that it's a regret and it shouldn't be done.
chunsakuma 20th-Dec-2012 05:45 am (UTC)
I don't think he's trying to encourage the behaviour and I respect that he seems to realise it's not the smartest thing. My main issue is that I just don't understand the comments I'm seeing that are like KEKEKEKEKE OPPA U SO FUNNY or GET IT GYU, etc. Yeah, lots of people drink, myself included, but what he's describing is essentially a bender and I fail to see the humour in that.
moronicus_kyla 20th-Dec-2012 05:55 am (UTC)
oh okay, I get you. but IDK, a bender is a common trope in comedy and sure, it's full of wrong implications and whatnot but I can see why people are amused by the story. I guess it's funny to some people because they can relate to it (being stupid and drunk and shit like that). to my knowledge, the people in omona aren't really kids and they're probably lol-ing at the fact that someone like Gyu who's supposed to be straight-laced and squeaky-clean can just be as dumb as your normal teen (at least that's how i read it XD)
chunsakuma 20th-Dec-2012 06:08 am (UTC)
But I mean, like you said, this isn't a variety show or something comedic. I guess I also don't understand how so many people can relate to drinking for 12 hours straight and to the point where they black out because yeah, I'm 23 and I drink on occasion, but the level of drinking that he's talking about shouldn't be normal or laughable imo.

Then there's the whole other can of worms with how Infinite (like most idol groups) has quite a young and impressionable fanbase who might think that if someone as seemingly responsible as Sunggyu can go on an alcohol-fueled bender and come out of it fine that it's totally cool if they try it too.

i understand where both sides are coming from tbh. i've had alcohol poisoning twice, i think my record was drinking for 9 hrs straight, and i was practically in a coma for the next three days or so. but whenever i look back on my experiences and share my drunk stories with family/ friends - because lbr so much shit can go down in a single drunk night - for some reason it sounds bloody hilarious and i have a good time laughing and rme at the things i did.
/csb

i think he isn't encouraging this behaviour, just sharing it for shit and giggles.
chunsakuma 21st-Dec-2012 12:06 am (UTC)
First and foremost, I'm glad that you're okay, but I really fail to see humour in anything that leads up to/includes alcohol poisoning, drinking for extended periods of time, and/or being in a coma. To me, all of that has way too much gravity to treat as anything but what it is : incredibly dangerous.

I don't think Sunggyu is encouraging the behaviour either (he seems to regret it and realise the severity of the situation), but shits and giggles? Really? This kind of thing just isn't funny; I don't care how anybody spins it. People can call me a hardass or whatever, but I won't apologise for viewing and treating this subject with the seriousness that it deserves.

How do you drink for 12 hours straight and not like.......die?
moronicus_kyla 20th-Dec-2012 05:31 am (UTC)
it's probably drinking, with eating and talking and doing stupid shit XD
dippz 20th-Dec-2012 06:04 am (UTC)
But he still managed to black out. So much shit could have happen while he was out cold. That's dangerous as fuck......

He freaking blacked out.
jeit91 20th-Dec-2012 05:39 am (UTC)
it's possible.
palebluedot09 20th-Dec-2012 06:50 am (UTC)
well it depends on how much you drink in that time span.
ironicmustache 20th-Dec-2012 11:01 am (UTC)
he's korean.
i see grown ass men (and women) stone-cold blacked-out every day of the week here. korean drinking culture is something else.

Idols being actual humans instead if the perfect robots their company wants them to be.

kamakazza 20th-Dec-2012 07:43 am (UTC)
I am pretty sure he wasn't knocking them back 1 right after the other and probably took breaks and ate food in between, hence why it is possible for him to do that.. I only drank for like 7 hours straight on my 22nd birthday and that is because u don`t drink all the alcohol one right after the other, you pace yourself.
iamtheliquorr 20th-Dec-2012 10:32 am (UTC)
um yeah drinking till you black out is never a good idea

good thing nothing bad happened to him
confuqued 21st-Dec-2012 04:43 am (UTC)
My mans!
xalter_egox 21st-Dec-2012 12:37 pm (UTC)
He added, “When I opened my eyes

lol Gyu, since when? XD
Hmmm, would this incident be the reason why he's now the king of vitamins? Such an adorable leader <3
