6 English fail videos by K-Pop idols

By  | 

Thanks to the steady rise in K-Pop, more and more companies are training their artists to converse in several languages, including English. There are many idols who are proficient at the English language but this post will focus on the ones who aren’t so great. 

There are obvious advantages to being skilled in English. The Western music market is big and companies in Korea know that there is a real thirst for K-pop in foreign countries, hence why it is important for their artists to be able to communicate with their fans and the media overseas.

Here are just a few videos, where K-pop idols  have made a cute attempt to speak English.
