How Good is Choo Sarang at the Korean Language?


Although Choo Sarang was born in Tokyo, Japan, and her mother is Japanese, she is proficient in Korean. That’s because she learned Korean from her father, Choo Sung-hoon. Aside from her father, Choo Sarang also studied Korean because her father registered her at a kindergarten school that uses Korean as their introductory language.

Sarang’s Korean language skills began to develop when she was on the popular KBS variety show, The Return Of Superman. Not only that, she was also seen teaching her Japanese mother, Yano Shiho. During filming, Choo Sung-hoon continued to instill the importance of learning Korean in his family.
