Jessica Tells Her Fans to Learn Korean Instead of Speaking in English
One of the manners in traveling to other countries or talking to a native person in the country one is traveling to, is to speak the country’s language, at least the basic sentences. The Same rule applies in making a friend. If you want to become somebody’s friend who doesn’t speak your language, you might have to try to speak their language.
A Recent post of Jessica brought on a hot debate. Jessica posted a picture of her dining out and fans loved it though she wasn’t all dressed up. Fans complimented about how more beautiful she is getting day by day. Jessica responded to the compliments by saying, “I didn’t do my hair because I was too lazy. But I am glad that you like it, thank you.”
She posted the sentence in Korean. Now, Jessica’s SNS isn’t only viewed by Korean fans but also by a number of foreign fans. After seeing the Korean written reply, foreign fans wrote “English Plz”.
Again, Jessica replied to those who wanted her to write in English, “Learn Korean:P” in Korean again.
Some fans responded in a positive way saying that they will learn, while others responded quite negatively, saying how could she say so. Opinions contradict to Jessica writing her post only in Korean and telling fans to learn Korean to understand her.
But, come to think of other examples as well, fans asking her to speak in English may be regarded as a superior way of thinking. Though it’s a fact that English is spoken and learned by more than 2/3 of the world’s population, English is thought to be superior than any other language. We don’t ask Hollywood stars who speak English as their first tongue to speak in a foreign language just because fans couldn’t understand.
If one wants to understand what others is saying, why not try first to translate on their own or learn the language?! It might be a great motivation to learn a new thing.
