Translation: 110415 Interview #4: ‘Hallyu Star’ Kim Jaejoong, His Linguistic Sense Is Extraordinary

Kim Jaejoong has many friends in Japan and the United States. One of the reasons this is true is because of his fluency in Japanese and English. Though most of his lessons consisted of talking to people while touring in these locations, he has an extraordinary linguistic sense. His knowledge of the information he was quizzed on was relatively strong too. Questions like #3 and #7 showed us just how well-versed he was in all genres. Though Jaejoong was able to get the answer for #4 in the end, he wrote down an incorrect answer because he received help while trying to figure it out. It seems that trying to guess how many subway stops there are on Line 2 is a bit extreme.
