Multitalented Korean actors and actresses just won’t give us a break! Some of these actors and actresses could even sing, dance, or even draw. And… what else can they do? Well surprisingly, apart from Korean, some of them could speak another language almost as fluently as native speakers!

Here are some actors and actresses that have truly impressed us with their foreign language skills.

    Not really an actor but the singer, Sung Si Kyung speaks pretty good English. I believe Ha Jung Woo and Kang Dong Won speaks decent English as well though not native sounding.
