On the July 27 broadcast of KBS 2TV’s “Idol on the Quiz”, a show that invites K-pop idols from different nationalities to take part in a unique quiz, Cube Entertainment artists from BTOB, PENTAGON, CLC, and (G)I-DLE appeared as guests.
During the show, a Chinese member Yuqi, who has spent four years in Korea, revealed her way of learning Korean. She said, “I taught myself Korean because of the drama ‘My Love From the Star’, starring Kim Soo Hyun.”
My Love from the Star is a South Korean romantic fantasy television series. The series, which ran for 21 episodes, features an ensemble cast starring Jun Ji Hyun, Kim Soo Hyun, Park Hae Jin and Yoo In Na. The story is about an extraterrestrial alien who landed on Earth in the Joseon Dynasty and, 400 years later, falls in love with a top actress in the modern era. The series was given generally positive reviews during its release in South Korea and received several accolades across Asia.
Yuqi said that she was a fan of the 2013-2014 drama and that Korean dramas were all the rage when she was in China.
She continued, “I studied Korean while watching ‘My Love From the Star,’ and I’ve always liked studying.”
Yuqi also added, “When I get in an argument [in Korean] with PENTAGON’s Yuto, I win every single one.” Her remark made everyone laugh, as Yuto has been living in Korea longer than Yuqi has.
The show’s MC Jung Hyung Don commented, “I always get surprised because Yuqi’s Korean laguage skills improve every time I see her.”
