How to install Kitchen Cabinets on a Drywall?

I have 2 Kitchen cabinets, each 50 CM on 80 CM, they way about 10 KG (maybe more? not sure). <br />
I wanted to hang them on the wall but just discovered it's a drywall, and seems pretty thin. <br />
It is a 120 CM wide niche that I have in my kitchen (like an inward gap),
on the left side there's a concrete wall, but on the right once again drywall. <br />
I've heard something about a Rail that might support them (attaching it to the concrete), but I'm not sure how relevant it is when the other side is also drywall. <br />
Any ideas? <br />
These cabinets are suppose to be above a Sink, so I can't think of many alternatives for them, ideas in that direction would help as well.

Thank you.

you need to attach them to whatever the drywall is attached to. try a studfinder to locat the studs behind the drywall. there is a possibility that they are metal studs. where are you located?

Yep, there has to be some sort of framing and that's what your cabinets attach to.
