KUALA LUMPUR: K-Pop group GOT7 member Jackson Wang swears by a better method in learning the language quickly: By dating South Korean girls.
According to a Koreaboo news report, the Hong Kong-born rapper revealed on a recent Cantonese-language radio show that it had worked on him better than taking formal language lessons.
Before making his debut in the K-Pop act in 2014, he did try mastering it the conventional way for six months but it wasn’t quite effective.
That was when he started dating Korean girls, and to his surprise he managed to learn the language better and faster by conversing with them.
“Actually, the dating part isn’t important. It’s the quarreling that you do with your girlfriend that matters most,” said Wang jokingly.
“I hope that everyone who needs to learn Korean will consider the dating option.”
The 23-year-old added that even though his current contract as a K-Pop artiste forbids him from dating anyone, there was no dating ban back when he was a trainee.
