3- Doing unreal actions
Some characters do things that they would never be able to do while sober. Because of alcohol, they lose their minds. For example, in “Wok of Love“.
4- Going over a breakup
There are some legendary scenes in dramas where one of the characters fells into despair and alcohol because of a breakup. Then, the character starts to call or text her ex. The most legendary scene might be from “You Who Came From The Stars”.
5- Instinctly come back home
After having some drink, the character might also sleep on the spot or go back home safely by remembering even the door’s code. For example, in “Still 17“.
6- Reality Denial
More recently, the example of this case of “reality denial” was seen in “Still 17“. The main character says “I am not drunk” while it is the opposite. In that case, it is hard for the person next to him to manage his strange actions.
