[Truth in Drink 4] ‘Korean Wave Star’ Kim Jaejoong, Special Even in His Feel for Language

Kim Jaejoong has many friends in Japan and in the US. One of the reasons for that is his proficiency in Japanese and English. They are those he learned while on the job on-site, but he was a bit special in his feel for learning languages. He was comparatively strong in the quiz questions too. Question number 3 on parallel universe theory and Question number 7 on jukebox musical made one guess at his level of general knowledge. On Question 4, he realized the answer later but he purposefully wrote in the wrong answer, saying that he didn’t get to it by himself. On getting right the number of stops of Subway Line #2, that was too much, no matter how you sliced it.
