In this study we compared Korean working adults’ participation in drinking parties with work colleagues, with Korean undergraduates’ participation in drinking parties with fellow students, to examine if being employed versus being an undergraduate had effects on alcohol consumption. Findings showed that working adults had lower levels of self-efficacy in their drinking-party participation than did undergraduates, and that working adults were less positive about their decision not to join drinking parties than were undergraduates. These findings may imply a generation difference between working adults and undergraduates and also social influence reflected in the Korean workplace culture.
