We all know learning to speak another language is an extremely difficult task.
As a natural consequence, the idea of being fluent in another language without spending their childhood or at least a decade in other countries seems almost impossible especially when it is not English, that one language that all of us had to study to be the leaders of a global society.
But there are some celebrities who can speak like a native speaker even though they spent most of their lives in Korea.
With these four celebrities, you will definitely agree with the recent catchphrase "brainy is the new sexy"!

It looks like their appearance and singing skills are not the only thing that TVXQ! should be proud of.
According to their fans in Japan, U-KNOW Yunho and MAX Changmin are at a level where they could sense the subtle difference in nuance when they are speaking Japanese.
They also added that they are not only moved by U-KNOW Yunho and MAX Changmin's constant efforts to learn their language but also, are in awe and having trouble finding the perfect word to describe their impeccable Japanese.

Even though he still needs to work on his Tagalog a little more, he has no problem communicating in other 4 languages.
4. Actress Seo Yea Ji
