    I was just curious. I mean, her pronunciation in English in her covers are quite good for a Korean. And, I also heard her speak English in Dream High. But, that's her script soo, yea.

    Is she fluent in English? I hope she is! If she is, wow. I think I can't imagine how amazed I will be with this girl. :D

    I doubt she is, her knowledge of English is probably whatever she's learned in school. But thankfully she doesn't have a huge accent~

    I think she isn't fluent, but for her covers she tries really hard to get the pronunciation right :]
    In dream high i couldn't understand her first words to jaeson though... XD
    she definitely has the potential to speak very fluently if she tried really hard :D

    Yea. I hope her agency encourages her to learn English. This way she can capture hearts of other people or fans. Like what U-Kiss are doing. :D

    Yup. She's not that fluent in English but her accent is quite well. They're kinda right about the U-KISS "part". If she's fluent in speaking English, she'll have more fans. Anyway, IU have more fans now ^^. Hwaiting IU! :)

    That's what I meant! If she has a lot of fans now. What more if she can speak English? Anywaay, with or without English she's popular and she's loved by international fans. :) Like me!

    I believe it's all from listening to others, doubt she'd know what each word mean.

    I think she's not fluent with english,
    but her pronunciation is pretty decent though..
    Hope she can practice more,
    in korea you have a certain edge when you are fluent with english
    especially for her as a Kpop star.

    love her anyway. =)

    I don't think she's fluent. I think she just knows how to pronounce English words in the correct way. Not in a Korean way. Im guessing they learn that in their company

    It's always good to learn English . She can really pronounce well so she should be able to do it .

    I think some of her English covers her English sounds ok, but for some of them I can hardly tell what she's saying, her accent is very noticeable to me and I wouldn't think she was fluent... her accent is very cute though ^^

    her pronunciation needs a little work....but it's really good for someone who isn't a native speaker of english. she sings really well in english; better than her speech. i don't think she is fluent in english, but she can probably understand bits and pieces...enough for her to get a basic understanding of what you're trying to say if you were to speak to her in english.

    lol at first, i didn't even know she spoke japanese...(because the two languages sound similar to me)...then i read the comments....lol she is so funny in that clip..."If you emergency... click this button... I RUN TO YOU" ahahaha

    i saw her cut on Heroes today where she tried to speak english
    she definitely has an accent, but it's not to a point where you can't understand what she's saying.
    Her accent is actually kinda cute haha

    ^^^ I loved the "I run to you" part
    LOL such a cutie
